Quoted from Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse Episode 1: The Penal Zone Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse Episode 1: The Penal Zone reviews & previews
"Nearly half a year ago I reviewed The Penal Zone, the debut episode of Sam & Max Season 3: The Devil's Playhouse. And I came away from that initial experience impressed with how developer Telltale Games managed to craft a bigger, better-looking, and -- most importantly -- better-playing adventure game, but I also found myself asking the question: Could the rest of the season actually maintain the same level of quality? The short answer: Pretty much, yeah. From its alien invasion beginnings to the Lovecraft-inspired (and surprisingly poignant) finale, The Devil's Playhouse weaves a sublimely absurd tale that's more cohesive and accessible than just about anything else in Telltale's repertoire. And you needn't worry about all these refinements impacting the series' trademark brand of comedy; Sam & Max's latest is still chock full of more laugh-out-loud moments than any other game franchise I can think of."
"Just as things looked to be returning to normal, Sam & Max come upon a new twist! The General Skun'Ka-pe has landed on Earth with a mysterious goal and only Max's newfound powers may be able to save the planet."
