Critic Reviews for Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space may be the low point of the trilogy, but it's still a laugh out loud game everyone should find entertaining. The remastered visuals are gorgeous, the soundtrack is incredible, and most of the puzzles are fun to solve.

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space is a great follow up for the franchise and Skunkape Games have done an amazing job on implementing the much-needed updates without losing any of the originals charm. Die-hard fans will welcome all the obvious and subtle changes that have been made and the release of a new version on the Switch was definitely a great choice to introduce a new generation of fans to the surreal and insane world of Sam & Max.

‎Seeing Sam & Max on screen is always a pleasure and I will never tire of saying it. Skunkape also has the merit of taking great care of the IP, something that can be seen from afar with the affection they put into each new compilation they produce. Now we can only hope, quite anxious, of course, that the developers are also encouraged to work on the other installment produced in the past by Telltale; Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. Will it be a reality in the future? Can we dream of a completely new delivery? Only time has the answer, but in the meantime Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is a great way to wait.‎

It's tricky to review games like this, especially re-releases where many will already know if they want it. The Telltale formula hadn't been scaled back to "interactive cinema" yet, so you're dealing with clunky puzzles and somewhat clunky delivery of clunky comedy, but you might love it. In a sense, each to their own. As a port it's difficult to fault, but as a game it's really no great shakes. But then again, if you dig that lagomorph, it doesn't need to be.

In sum, Skunkape has done another excellent job remastering an old point-and-click gem from the Telltale archives of years past. Though I wouldn’t put the Sam & Max episodic adventures in my all time list for the genre, they do rank highly, and are absolutely worth playing if you enjoy the genre or want to experience some zany plots and characters. We’ll look forward to the third and final remaster hopefully next year.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is an OK release overall. This 20-or-so-hour adventure has an admirable quantity of content, but the quality amongst the individual episodes is inconsistent. I found only two of the five to be the sort I'd want to replay. Still, Sam & Max are great characters. Pick up their earlier adventure, Sam & Max Save the World, to get an idea if this one is for you.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered was a treat to play through. The game's characters will entertain you from start to end, and all its mechanics have been expertly remade. As such, it is a no-brainer for fans of the series, especially at the reasonable price of $20, and a great suggestion in general to gamers who enjoy a good laugh.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered is a great follow-up to the first entry in the series, but continuity means it's not the most accessible for newcomers.
