Reviews:

CD-ROM World, September 1994

"Don't be fooled. The title characters of Sam & Max Hit the Road may be, respectively, a funny-looking dog and a cute-in-a-deranged-way rabbit, but LucasArts' latest entry into the CD-ROM adventure market is no kids' game, either in tone or in level of difficulty.

"Not that the humor of the game is offensive - it's more like David Letterman's style. Sam and Max jovially insult each other ('I can't think of anything more relaxing than being locked in a moving car with a delusional psychotic like yourself, Sam.'), and there's the occasional silly gross-out (check out the bungee jumping from the nostrils of Mt. Rushmore). The humor is a little dark, but it's always tongue-in-cheek.

"Oh, and don't be fooled, either, by the pretense of a plot. The search for a missing, formerly-frozen Bigfoot and his giraffe-necked girlfriend is nothing more than an excuse to take potshots at American kitschy tourist traps ('Visit the World's Largest Ball of Twine!') and to solve some typically creative and funny LucasArts puzzles. Particularly elegant is the Mystery Vortex, with its upside-down rooms, wild gravity tricks, and a very satisfying final puzzle."

PC Magazine, September 13, 1994

"Sam & Max Hit the Road is a witty trip through the tourist traps of America with the laid-back Sam and the thrill-seeking Max as they search for Bruno the Bigfoot and Trixie the Giraffe-Necked Lady. The offbeat humor and sarcastic one-liners are a refreshing change from usual adventure game fare."
