Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

Adventure Classic Gaming

  • Excerpt: Tales of Monkey Island is a Monkey Island game in both form and spirit, at least for the first chapter. It looks like Monkey Island, it sounds like Monkey Island, it feels like Monkey Island, and it plays like Monkey Island. For fans of Monkey Island, that will be all they need to know. For other gamers, however, a bit of added perspective may be required. The Monkey Island franchise carries great weight in the community of point-and-click adventure gamers.

GAME REVIEW – Tales Of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 ‘Launch Of The Screaming Narwhal’

Alternative Magazine Online
7 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Still, apart from the mild spoiler of the Voodoo Lady (I decided it was okay because Telltale had pre-release screenshots of her on their site!) I refuse to say anything else; it really is best experiencing it all firsthand. The whole episode just works the way it should do. The puzzles are funny, reasonably challenging and adhere to a fair logic. The voice-work and character interactions regularly raise a smile and even a few full blown laughs.

Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
29 July 2009
  • Excerpt: You mean Lucasarts DOES actually care about a franchise other than ‘Star Wars’? You would think that being an editor of this site would mean I keep on top of all of the big releases, right? Wrong! It worries me when the first new game in 9 years is added to my favourite franchise, and the first I hear of it is a text message informing me that the details to download a review copy are in my inbox.
  • Pros: Great story, Packed with wit & humour, Improved control system, IT’S MONKEY FRICKIN’ ISLAND!!!
  • Cons: More effort could be put into the secondary characters, I don’t really want to wait a month for each new episode.

Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

  • Summary: Главное, что дух серии сохранился, комедийная феерия с постоянным стебом над пиратами, не просто осталась, но и звучит почти так же здорово, как без малого двадцать лет назад. Всего эпизодов пять и выходить они будут ежемесячно, начиная с июля. Надеемся, что следующей возрожденной легендой от Telltale Games станет ныне агонизирующий сериал Leisure Suit Larry.
