Sam & Max 105: Reality 2.0

posted by Zodler on - last edited - Viewed by 170 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:

  • I liked it, except the fact that it bugged every time I went to the office, except in virtual reality. I solved that problem by always going to the office in virtual reality then switching to real reality, but that proved to be a problem later. So it was annoying.

    Other than that, I liked it.

  • I liked the Reality 1.5 part most because I got to try to give max Bosco's E-Convenience

    I liked the whole little save point that autosaved when you clicked on it. I like stuff like that, made it easier for me (since I was in crossover)

  • Oh, Reality 1.5 was the text thing? I thought they meant 2.0 and made a mistake. Didn't remember it had a specific name.
    I liked the text adventure. I had never played any and it was nice doing so. The different colours so you could remember where you were were a nice touch. (That's a lot of w(h)eres in a row).

  • My only dislike was with Reality 1.5 "the text adventure". I had no problem with Reality 2.0.

  • Many friends of me and I found the Reality 1.5 part, actually, utterly ingenious. It's a homage to the old games, it's not THAT hard simply because there are only 4 places to go, and because there are no graphics, writers didn't hold theirselves to write something that's REALLY hard to visualise. I loved it, and I still think it's one of the strongest parts of the entire episode, if not the season.

    It's just that many people here are used to finish an episode in 3 hours or less, and count it as a mere insult to their intelligence if an episode takes more than that. I felt like that too, but then I realized that there is a SAVE option as well that makes it able for you to continue from wherever you left. If you get frustrated, just save and get some Cold Ones. Relax, take your time doing other works of yours, and then return to the game with a fresh mind. It helps. Especially against unneeded hate towards quality stuff.

  • Hehe, pool of nausiating (probably spelled that wrong) cuteness :D.

    Like the others, I have to agree that part was utter brilliance. And I am too young to have played adventure games when they were still only text.

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

    Well, it wasn't hard at all as you had a very limited number of choices, and like many others, I think it was hilarious. Give it another chance is what I'd suggest, carefully reading the texts.
