  • Summary: In this episode, our heroes cross paths with an even more bizarre and dangerous pair of characters -- their own great-grandparents! These characters set out on their trippiest trip yet in The Tomb of Sammun-Mak, leapfrogging across ten decades and possibly as many continents (we haven't counted) in search of the mysterious force that's causing all the trouble.

  1. 92
    Even better thanks to far cleverer puzzles. [Issue#194, p.102]
  2. Even if you are just slightly into adventure games, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is sure to entertain, both creatively and comically for an extremely affordable price.
  3. With the usual snappy dialogue, hilarious set-pieces and some genuinely brilliant puzzles to wrap your ailing brain around, it looks like Telltale has hit a rich vein of form.
  4. The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is a really fun episode. The switching between the movie reels adds an extra layer of depth to the puzzles and the story is a lot better than in the first episode. Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak gives promising prospect for the episodes to come.
  5. Once again, the developers at Telltale Games have proven that they are the masters of episodic gaming and point-and-click adventures.
  6. 79
    Overall, the second episode of the saga of Sam and Max improves on the first in many ways. It's funnier, more clever and a better paced episode than the first and Telltale is seemingly ramping it up as they go along.
  7. The writing is as sharp as ever, but doesn't feel as fresh. [Aug 2010, p.96]
