Summary: This is the best game in all history !!!. I remember when I was 7 and used to play this game and couldn't finish it because I lost it. Nevertheless, the little time I had with the game gave me such an impact that I just couldn't forget it anymore. Now I am almost 20 and bought this. Let me tell you, its the best thing I have ever done in my life ! The game is just as I remembered, fun and difficult, just as the old games used to be.

Summary: Amazing game! Witty, funny, and charming. You'll be sure to fall in love with the characters all over again and including Murray, the demonic talking skull. Graphics are great, and the storyline is never boring. Have fun!
Summary: I was a big fan of these type of games when i was younger from and this game is truly a welcome surprise! I admit when this game was released i was moving from PC gaming back to console gaming and i passed this one up but now that i am on a nostalgia kick i bought a copy and even though it was a little tricky to get it to run on Vista it works great and is a blast to play! The storyline is interesting the characters are all fun and the gameplay is smooth.
Can not get to work on Win Vista - DirectX 9.0, bummer!

Summary: I bought this game because it is a classic, funny and great game, but upon arrival i popped it in my new HP computer with windows vista Premium (with DirectX 9.0) and the game prompts to the install screen - so far normal. After and almost immediate installation process (seriously less than a second) I tried to play it and it told me i needed to install DirectX on my computer.
Summary: I have been a Monkey Island Fan for my entire life... well, okay, i was around 10 when I heard of it, but regardless, it is a fantastic series. My personal favorite is "Curse," simply because it has the best "witty reparte," the most interesting storyline, and a cast a lovely characters, such as Murray the Talking Skeleton Head. Plus I love the caracature-like artistry that is found soley in Monkey Island 3.
Summary: This game is so witty and fun to play. it isn't the type of game that you would play mulitple times but you do because you want to hear the jokes again and you usually find something new that you didn't notice the previous time you played it. this game acts kind of like your favorite comedy movie. you just play it to play it and have fun. i highly reccomend this game to anyone and everyone. it is fun for all ages. two thumbs way up.
