  • Excerpt: Monkey Island games aren’t really known for their complex, twisting plots. Essentially, what you expect is a piratical romp around some strangely-named islands, swashing your buckle with all manner of odd characters, and a scattering of anachronisms and pop-culture references to keep you smiling.

  • Pros: Attention to detail is outstanding. Developer narration is excellent and worth the purchase alone. It's Monkey Island 2, enough said.
  • Cons: Some original elements are missing for no real reason.
