Sam & Max 105: Reality 2.0

posted by Zodler on - last edited - Viewed by 380 users
So I was playing this episode. I enjoyed all the previous 4 and this episode immensely. Was looking forward to finish this season and start season2, till I reached the horrendous Reality 1.5 part.

I just don’t know how to express how much I hated it. This episode went from the best to the worst episode for me. It irritated me so much that it killed any desire I had to play Sam and Max for any time soon. I will probably not even finish the season although only one episode is left.

I thought you were not in the business of defeating people! It’s not just because it was hard, it was just irritating and nonsense and I didn’t find anything nonsense in Reality 2!

... I had to write this. :mad:

  • There were parts of Reality 2.0 (the episode) that I liked and parts that I really hated and did not like. Overall it was the worst episode, Reality 2.0 (the world/game) wasn't an improvement on the 'real' Sam & Max world in any way at all.
  • Since we are on this subject. How real is the Sam and Max world supposed to be? Eventually started Episode 106 and I'm kind of surprised and "put off" by going to the moon that way. Is that supposed to be real? Or indication that we are still in a Reality 3.0 maybe?
  • 106 is as real as any other Sam & Max story. Their car is just that cool.
  • Are you asking about real in a game about an Antropomorphic dog and rabbity-thing?
  • the world of reality 2.0 wasn't actually an improvement at all, I don't think it was supposed to be.

    and seriously it isnt real at all. In Bad Day on the Moon Max put a bunch of matches in the desoto's tailpipe to launch it (or hit the big red launch button in the cartoon series). Maybe they did it again in Bright Side of the Moon

    It isn't supposed to make sense. deal with it
  • *Is reminded of the episode "The second show ever".*

    But yeah, their car is capable to do... well... pretty much anything.
  • Are you asking about real in a game about an Antropomorphic dog and rabbity-thing?
    Yes, but everything including Fantasy stories have some ground rules. Honestly the car going to the moon was too much for me!

    they impossibly go into space in both. in sam and max the only ground rules are that Sam is a dog and max is a maniac rabbit

    I thought this ep was great and it made me think of my past as a gamer and I enjoyed it.
    Seconded.

    It was actually one of the best gaming experiences I had ever had.

    Then when I came around to replaying it (like I've doing for the whole series), it kind of seemed much more dull in comparison.

    The little text adventure was very funny, deep and meaningful as well, it was surprising how telltale could have done such a marvellous final level of the ep with presumably as little disk space and memory as possible.

    One of the jokes in the series is that they can drive wherever they want whenever they need to. There's a comic where they go to Ancient Egypt somehow, although it's not clear whether they drove there or not.
