For those not in the know, Sam & Max have been around for a while, since 1987 in fact, and have been in games since 1989. "Beyond Time and Space" follows on from "Save The World", their first outing on XBA. Like the first game it is episodic, split into five seperate cases. Many of the NPC's from the make appearances, along with a load of new whacky characters. The games is your classic point and click adventure, which if a walkthrough is used and dialogue skipped can be finished off very quickly. However, you will miss much of the great humour and miss a lot of the game out.
Each of the five eposides has an achievement for finishing it, and a missable achievement. There is one for finishing the game, and one for unlocking all upgrades for the Desoto. This is sort of cumulative, as you need to complete the driving mini games in episodes 1,2,3 and 5, collecting all of the decals. This is the only really tricky achievement in the game, but is more frustrating than difficult.
To complete the episodes and get all of the missable achievements, you need to explore every nook and cranny, talk to and exhaust all dialogue with characters and pay attention to what is said. Alternatively, you can use tastefulmrship's excellent walkthrough found here. Follow this word for word, line for line and you will be done in no time.
Sam and Max Beyond Time and Space can be used as either a great point and click adventure with a good story and excellent wit and humour, or you can fly through and enjoy the easy gamerscore. Up to you, but I would recommend the first!
