|Title: Sam & Max Hit the Road (2nd Review)
Rom Player: PC
Reviewer: Overlord Skeletor
Synopsis: This is by far the greatest point & click game LucasArts ever made (aside from Monkey Island 4, the line: "You've befouled my platypus" is priceless)
The plot of the game is simple, you control freelance police Sam (a dog in a suit) and his psychotic partner Max, an adorable yet evil bunny who reminds me of that evil rabbit from Monty Python.
Anyway, the point of the story is that a traveling carnival renowned for it's freak show is missing its 2 star attractions: Bruno, the frozenest bigfoot & Trixie: the giraffe-necked girl from Scranton (don't ask). I won't get into details, but you visit strange locales around the USA, meet strange people, animals, bigfoots, ect... solve puzzles using items to get other items, things like that.
If you've played any of LucasArts' other point & click, Monkey Island style "adventure" games, you'll love it. Even if you haven't, the strange cartoony animation and funny-ass one-liners. I also recommend Blazing Dragons for the PSX, since the two games play identically, right down to the interface. Oh, and before I forget... ALL HAIL OUR LORD AND MASTER, THE ALL-MIGHTY SQUIGGLY FISH! HE IS YOUR SALVATION!
Best Cheats: There aren't any cheats per-saye... but if you must resort to dirty tactics to beat a game specifically designed so that YOU CANNOT LOSE... there's a magical fantasy land called the internet... maybe you've heard of it. You can find all kinds of video game strategies on one of a million billion websites to get one. Of course, if you're reading this & didn't know that AND you're reading this; then you my friend, ARE A RETARD!(and i use that term in the most derogatory fashion possible).
