    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.

    The writing is as sharp as ever, but doesn't feel as fresh. [Aug 2010, p.96]
