Tales of Monkey Island

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Adventure games have been going through a mini renaissance of late and we can all thank Telltale for its massive contribution in bringing puzzling back from the dead and treating the genre with the love and respect is has duly deserved. With Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal the Telltale team has outdone themselves: a true return to form for the series and an unmissable title that we think everyone must own.

  • Excerpt: With the recent revival of the point-and-click adventure genre, it’s hard to ignore the influence that some classic games have had on the more recent installments. A good example of this is Jolly Rover , an independent game for the PC and Mac recently released on Steam. With a 2D art style, island setting, and more pirates than you can shake a cutlass at, Jolly Rover was clearly inspired by the early Monkey Island games.

  • Conclusion: During my six-plus hours of playing through Jolly Rover, I ultimately found no huge drawbacks to this pirate… that is, pirate dog adventure. The story of a pirate and voodoo hijinks on the high seas doesn’t break any new ground, and some may find the gameplay a little too shallow, a bit too easy.

  • Excerpt: The last Tales of Monkey Island episode left us off with Morgan LeFlay once again boarding our ship and once again dueling our lead character. This time, though, the Screaming Narwhal is literally consumed by a giant manatee, leaving them inside the belly of the beast. It's your job to get your ship out, find La Esponga Grande and remove the pox that has ravaged the pirate population.

  • Excerpt: A month after launching a reboot to the Monkey Island series, Telltale Games released the second chapter in their episodic undertaking – Tales of Monkey Island: Siege of Spinner Cay. It's not as interesting or funny as the first chapter, but it continues the story in a fashion that promises to make you desire future episodes.

  • Conclusion: Although it's not the perfect, laugh-out-loud ending we all wanted, The Rise of the Pirate God is still one of the best chapters of the five part series.

  • Summary: Tales of Monkey Island really is an outstanding adventure filled with well thought-out puzzles and some hilarious jokes. There are also enough plot twists and cliffhangers to keep you coming back for more. Whether you're a longtime Monkey Island fan or this is your first taste of the series, you'll have a blast.
  • Pros: Tricky, clever puzzles, Great voice work, Maintains the Monkey Island sense of humor
  • Cons: Some ugly, repeated character models, A few tedious puzzles, Clunky control scheme
