BUY THIS GAME. Or rather, buy the whole season.
I've previously reviewed more Sam and Max episodes than I care to count, but this most recent one is by far the best, and the most undeniable proof that Telltale's Sam and Max series is one of the best things to happen to adventure gaming -- or gaming period -- in quite a while.
Where the other Sam and Max episodes were content to tell self-contained stories, Episode 204: Chariots of the Dogs ties together the narrative threads from almost every other episode of season two, making for hilarious twists, turns, and revelations a-plenty. The seeds that were sewn in episodes 1-3 finally come to fruition with this most recent installment: in this sense, Chariots of the Dogs proves just how cool episodic gaming can be. Of course, apart from that, it's also got some of the coolest, funniest puzzles in the entire Sam and Max series.
So, yeah. It's really good. Buy the whole season, if only for how this episode ties everything together.
