Summary: Monkey Island games are still the best!! Build on the classics with updated graphics. Click and point with lots of problem solving... Just excellent....I ran on laptop that barely met minimum system requirements with no crashes, etc...
Summary: This was a gift for my boyfriend who loves the entire Monkey Island series. I'd never heard of it before, but over the past couple of weeks, by watching him play it, I find myself in love with it. While there are many wonderful call-backs to the previous games--all of which my boyfriend fondly pointed out to me--I feel one could just jump right in with this game as well.
Summary: Excellent game, along the line of Discworld. Great humor and good item puzzles. The only problems are 1. the protagonist is the stuffiest and perhaps lamest character in the entire game, 2. the game is rather short, and most importantly, 3. there are no decent resolutions you can either play in a SMALL window, or play very stretched with heavily pixelated graphics, ruining the nice art. Still, this is a gem of a title.
Awesome and totally on par with the Monkey Island series

Summary: If you're a fan of Monkey Island and/or Sam and Max, I highly recommend this game. It's got some fun references to earlier Monkey Island games, but if you're not familiar with the MI series, you will still enjoy this game. The puzzles are clever but never too difficult (I resorted to a walkthrough maybe twice, and then was disappointed at myself for doing so!). It's funny, it's brilliant, and you shouldn't hesitate to get it.
Summary: Love the storyline, the comedy, almost everything! I am a big fan of SAM and MAX because of this game! Telltale Inc. Rocks! I want them to make more so i can play nonstop lol j/k but it would be awesome to play games that are actually funny and thought provoking!
Summary: I played the originals years ago as a kid. I didn't have internet back then so I had to get through all the puzzles without outside help and it was frustrating and crazy. And I loved every minute of it! These games were classics and so funny and witty that some of the jokes remain part of my 27 year old vocabulary. So I was basically clapping my hands with glee when I learned we were going to have a new adventure. Overall, I am not the least bit disappointed.
Summary: Jolly Rover is a well-presented adventure game that sticks to the tried and true framework set out by Monkey Island all those year ago, and that is its biggest downfall. It has good voice-acting and graphics and good puzzle design. However, it is nothing adventure fans have not seen before. Its a shame that the gameplay is so uninspiring as the narrative is really humorous and entertaining and could have made it a stand-out.
Summary: This is a fun throwback to older adventure games. Not as complex or charming as some of the old greats, but a lot of fun nevertheless. For any fans of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, etc, I'd definitely recommend it.
Summary: In the interest of full disclosure, I dove into this game ready to love it, as I grew up with the series and had waited a decade for a follow-up to the largely disappointing last title. However, what I got out of it was more than the scratching of a ten-year itch. Much, much more. As I played through all five chapters of Tales of Monkey Island, I was relieved to see that the series' humour was as wacky as ever, that all characters worth revisiting had either important...
