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
"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,
"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."
