Sam is a six-foot dog in a baggy suit sporting a trombone-sized .44 hand cannon. Max is a three foot "rabbity thing" with a saw blade grin and the impulsive nature of the average pirhana. Together, they patrol the sticky streets of a fantastical New York City, righting wrongs, pummeling perps, and ridding the urban landscape of the shifty legions of "self-propelled gutter trash."
- Story-driven Gameplay: High-quality production values, funny engaging stories, sarcastic, outrageous characters, and bizarre locations come together into what has been described as gaming's first interactive sitcom. Each episode has a self-contained plot but is also part of a larger, season-wide mystery. Subplots weave in and out of the main storyline.
- Easy to Play: Sam & Max Season Two has a simple point and click interface that is easy to navigate.
- Hint System: Innovative, integrated hint system that detects when a player is stuck and provides in-game assistance through non-player characters. Hint frequency is set by the player, and can be turned off completely.
- ESRB Rating: TEEN with Crude Humor, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Drug Reference, and Cartoon Violence
