The German magazine GameStar (http://www.gamestar.de) has a Sam & Max: Freelance Police preview in its current issue. I've scanned it for you.

Sam & Max 2 preview (http://www.pcgamescore.de/stuff/GameStar(Sam&Max2).jpg)

Seeing the lower left screenshot I understand what Steve Purcell meant when he was talking about "hilarious animation" in his comment on the cancellation.

Please be aware that they rated the potential to be only "Gut" (="Good") because they have a policy that prevents any better preview rating ("Very good", "Excellent") before they actually played the game or watched someone else play live.

Please post some higher-res scans of the screenshots specifically if you can!

I'd like them for samandmax.net.

It's strange how a preview of a game that looks ever more awesome can make me so sad.

I don't think I've seen actual gameplay moving yet, but judging by all this stuff, they've finally managed to make a decent SCUMM system in 3D. It looks great, and probably plays easily too. Argh!

LucasArts could easily torture us forever by slowly releasing great screenshot after great screenshot from this game.

I'm hoping for a disgruntled employee to leak the code...

I'm forever going to be haunted by this. Not only did LucasArts cancel Sam and Max 2, they canceled their first point and click adventure since CMI. I'm gonna go cry some more.

Oh.
MY.
GOD.

All this time I've been wondering about that screenshot ("Inside the Office" (http://www.pcgamescore.de/stuff/GameStar(Sam&Max2-office).jpg)) and now I see it really is the true successor to SCUMM. This game looks incredible :'(

This game looks like it could have been the best adventure game since The Longest Journey, or even..... Grim Fandango. :(

Someday I'm going to kick Mike Nelson right in the balls, and it'll be the happiest day of my life.

Some more salt in the wound (http://www.pcgamescore.de/stuff/04_2004_036.pdf)

:eek:

:(

:mad:

The sad part is that you can't read how much they're bragging about the game in German.

But we can't give up hope. We must keep fighting!

By the way, when exactly is Jake going to update?
