Description: Sam is a dog with a hat. Max is a hyperkinetic naked rabbity thing. Together, they’re the Freelance Police, the intergalactically famous agents of indiscriminately applied justice, now starring in their umpteenth video game, Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! Even multimedia evil-slappers like Sam & Max could use a hand, and this time they’re using the incomprehensible magic of virtual reality to invite the player into their off-kilter world for a furious day of monster-slaying, obstacle courses, responsibly discharged firearms, and, of course, saving the entire freaking world.

Review: I have to say I find myself split on my opinions of ‘Sam and Max: This Time It’s Virtual!’. On the plus side, it looks good and features a lot of humour of the show and at times it really did make me smile. But instead of the big “adventure” you are promised you end up with a small collection of mini-games none of which are essentially unique. In fact, apart from the visual element, the whole game would have been just as good on a Google Cardboard headset! I just can’t recommend this game no matter how much I love the franchise. It was clearly made in a rush with no real thought about how best to bring the classic cartoon show to the VR platform and for that reason, I really don’t recommend it.
