PS4 Review: Sam and Max: Save the World Remastered/Sam and Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered

Holy jumping weasel fritters on a hot cross bun! Sam and Max are back on PlayStation!

I reviewed these games for the Xbox One when they released last year, links below:

This is the first time that Season One/Save the World has hit PlayStation. The second season/Beyond Time and Space released as 5 individual games that weren’t the greatest port, especially compared to the Xbox 360 version at the time. Still, PS3 won by nabbing The Devil’s Playhouse which is considered by most to be the best of the bunch and hopefully we’ll be getting that remastered next, pretty please Skunkape?

The PS4 versions of the games are identical to the Xbox One versions that came out last year, which is no bad thing. It made the controls more user-friendly, added quality of life improvements and most of all, had a fully functional framerate. This is a blessing when compared to what BTAS handled like on PS3…I should know, I managed to nab every trophy in them through gritted teeth recently and it wasn’t pretty.

The PlayStation Store has the games sold individually for £15.99 or £24.99 as a bundle, the latter is naturally the best deal and I’d highly recommend it if you haven’t picked up a version of the remasters yet, plus each game has a lovely shiny Platinum trophy for you. The games should take you a few hours each to get through and it still retains the classic point-and-click feel that the series originated from.

The Verdict

Sam and Max: Save the World Remastered/Sam and Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered are both superb games that now can finally be played on PS4 or PS5 and at a very reasonable price to boot. Jumping elephant fleas, are you still here? Go out and buy them now!

Score: 9.0
