  1. While I certainly cannot say They Stole Max's Brain! is a long ride, since it clocks in at around two hours, give or take, it's very well-paced and enjoyable. The cliffhanger at the end of the episode gives way to what I can consider one of the more bizarre closers for a Sam & Max game... and that's saying a lot.
  2. It's not a drastic improvement over the last game, but considering how high-quality the season has been so far, I doubt anyone is going to complain.

    Overall, this episode did a good job in rejuvenating me into the series. The previous two episodes got the series off to a good start, but after the last one, I had a hard time getting excited because the puzzles were starting to become too difficult for me to handle.
  4. Despite the episode's fantastic opening, They Stole Max's Brain! is a good, but not great, Sam & Max adventure. It's a shame there aren't any extras to make you play through again.
  5. Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! contains some smart puzzles and a strong story, but slightly disappoints after the great Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak. The game is quite short, but the predictable cliffhanger still leaves you wanting more.
