    Sam and Max Save the World looks as great as it sounds. With upgraded visuals, fresh jazzy music, remastered audio across the board, this is the best this game series has ever looked. Bring on Season 2, 3, and beyond.

    Skunkape have done a fantastic job of refining everything that needed to be updated but have left the prevailing spirit of Sam & Max Save The World untouched. For fans of the genre or for anyone who enjoys absurd irreverent humour, this is a ‘must play’ title that has the capacity to have you in fits of laughter.

    This is an easy release to recommend to anyone that loves a great adventure game that has been revamped for modern play, but maintains all of the timeless quality and charm it had originally.

    The remastering of Sam & Max Saves the World is a delightful return to the comedic antics of our crime fighting duo. Some jokes might not land and a lot of puzzles can feel too easy, but the duo’s wit has staying power. Add that with some catchy new tracks and a remastering that makes the game more stylish than less, and you have a proper return to form. If you never had a chance to play Sam and Max Save the World, this is the best way to experience one of Telltale’s first games.

    This remaster does not do much except adding some controller support, but it does amazing work on the visual and audio segments and just for that it deserves to be in your library even if you still have the original.

    Sporting improved visual and audio quality, the remastered Sam & Max Save the World lovingly updates the episodic classic, though a few tweaks and changes may leave it just shy of being the definitive version for some longtime fans of the original.

    Sam and Max Save the World Remastered is just as chuckle friendly as it was when it originally launched. Though some of the writing feels dated, and it's not as difficult as older adventure titles or as engaging as modern ones.

People are **** about .1% of the script changed (changed you can look up online and see for yourself beforehand to see if it ruins the game for you or not) and a changed voice actor. Now, whether the new VA is better or worse is up for debate, but even if you think he's god awful (he isn't) that doesn't justify the horrid scores this game has received here. The game is a beautiful labor of love on the first successful episodic game series, with updated graphics and music that makes it the definitive experience. Even so, the devs have now put the original episodes in as FREE DLC, meaning now they are all in one nice clean package for the first time, as previously they were all broken up on steam.

    It's never endingly perplexing to me how the same people who would say **** like "lol get over it snowflake" are the same people who **** and moan over like 10 jokes being changed because "muh sjw culture ruining video games".

    This is a good game and deserves a better score. Play it for yourself and you'll see.

    I just finished playing Sam and max and is really a fun game if you actually want to play the game sure there are time when you get stuck inI just finished playing Sam and max and is really a fun game if you actually want to play the game sure there are time when you get stuck in an area but you will figure it out eventually I also heard about some censored line and Bosco's voice change from the original but to be honest does it really matter, some jokes are still funny and they probably censored the lines to keep the rated T and Bosco's voice doesn't change the game it's just changed so overall the game is really fun and great and I hope the season 2 and 3 also get remasters.

    Unfortunately the developers decided to censor jokes and fire a voice actor simply because the actor didn't match the color of the character.Unfortunately the developers decided to censor jokes and fire a voice actor simply because the actor didn't match the color of the character.

    Don't waste your money on this. Get the originals. I wouldn't recommend this if this was free.
