Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep Recap Trailer
PC PowerPlayThis is the freshest that Sam & Max have been in a while. [July 2010, p.60]
Two years later, TellTale strikes back with the first chapter of the third season of the adventures of Steve Purcell's charming characters: Sam & Max. New graphisc engine and several changes in the control system are its main features. And, for the first time, we get to control Max and his superpowers.
While it's enjoyable to solve puzzles and uncover a story in a genre that doesn't receive a lot of mileage these days, it's a little unfortunate that the themes and humor borrow from this ancient Looney Tunes-meets-90s-attitude rather than create a new world and identity all its own.

The writers succeeded in creating more interesting puzzles and interesting and successful story mechanics - Simultaneous Multiple Universes - Present Past and Future coexisting in your Brain - and to top it all off they worked in some special powers for Max. The unusual irreverent humor is Present and In Your Face. Add to Fart. Bingo.

I did not enjoy the controls! (Both keyboard/mouse and controller).
Beginning seems forced, probably due to the design choice to shock and defamiliarize the audience. But stick with it – I finished the Season, and IS GOOD!
Sam is still Sam, and Max is still ol' Max! :)
Season 3 is pretty weird (wouldn’t be Sam and Max otherwise) and good. I enjoyed it as well as other seasons, although I think Season 2 is my favorite so far.
Sam and Max and other characters become more familiar and more lovable, the level of professional voice-acting should be an example to 99% of today’s games out there. The plot is ridiculous, and funny, yet is an integrated part of the entire satirical whole, where puzzle solving is outrageous and ingenious at the same time, while being absurdly logical, implausible, improbable, and ludicrous.
If for some reason you are reading this review without playing Season 1 and 2 – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND trying those. It might be odd at first, but stick to it and the series will reward you.… Expand
