"Two episodes in, the second "season" of Sam & Max is already blowing the first six-game series out of the water. In fact, it's not a stretch to say that Episode 202: Moai Better Blues is the best game so far in the demented point-and-click series about a dog detective and his gruesome rabbit sidekick. It's certainly the funniest by a wide margin, being the first episode to actually make us laugh out loud more than once. And considering what a bunch of jaded humor snobs we are, that's no small compliment." Adventure Gamers
"The most creatively strange game yet in the series; a significant number of new and gorgeous environments along with an amazing soundtrack; those frustrated with easy games should find more challenge here. There are criticisms, to be sure, but ultimately they feel like small nitpicks on what is an intelligent and wildly creative episodic adventure that continues the series with the requisite lunacy." Cinematic Happenings Under Development
"As always, the humor is where its at. This episode seems to be the most niche of all of them, and if you don't know about the history of the Bermuda triangle and the people who supposedly got sucked into it you'll miss a bunch of jokes. Besides that, the Moai statues are hysterical, and especially their infatuation of them by Abraham Lincoln's severed head."IGN
"Moai Better Blues is shorter and smaller than previous installments in the series. Compared to the sprawling locales and stories of Reality 2.0 or Situation: Comedy, this episode seems almost too short. But size and length isn't an indication of quality. If anything, the smaller scale means that there's no filler here. Everything you come across is pure comedic content. Moai Better Blues never loses its focus so you'll get as much enjoyment out of its two-hour length than the three or four hours you spent playing some of the previous episodes. Add in puzzles that require multiple leaps of logic and a longer memory and it's easy to see why we're so encouraged by the direction that Telltale is taking this series."GameBoomers
"Sam & Max Episode 202: Moai Better Blues is an excellent presentation from Telltale Games, as always; the style has been maintained, and the quality remains high in all aspects of the game from music, to acting, story, and graphics." Jolt
"In terms of overall quality though, which is the aspect which really counts, Moai Better Blues is easily in the same league as Ice Station Santa. While we’re probably still one episode away from unequivocally recommending a purchase of the whole season now, despite what we would argue is a low likelihood of the remainder turning out to be duffs, there’s no doubt that Sam & Max are as on form as they ever have been. Our only question is if Father Christmas has featured at Christmas and Easter Island has featured in mid-winter, what’s the setting going to be at Easter?"
Enough glowing praise for you? Go play it already!
