Summary: This is one of my all-time favorite games! It is so different from all the violent, killing games that are offered today. It is witty, funny, colourful and just all around enjoyable for people of any age. I wish they would make more games like this!
Summary: In the annals of adventure gaming, the Monkey Island series stands alone. The original game was one of the first games I ever bought back in my 286 days. This third installment is miles ahead of its predecessors in terms of technology, gameplay, and--thankfully--fun. The storyline, character integrity, acerbic displays of wit, and history of the Monkey Island universe were not sacrificed in the name of animation, voice acting, and graphics.
Summary: I own all four of the Monkey Island games. Of course, they are all very good, but this remains my favorite. Unless you hate funny, puzzling games with good graphics, pirates and ex-cannibals, this is a game you must play. I have to admit that some problems are hard to solve without the cheat sheets (which you can get at cheatcc.com) but if you use them, use them as a guide the first time.
Summary: Sorry for the title. I figured it was a good attention grabber plus Guybrush says this many a time juring this game... This is an excellent game! The cartoon graphics are cute, and they work quite well surprisingly. The characters themselves are well drawn and are have very individual, unique personalities. I love the wit in this game. I found myself laughing out loud sometimes inspite of myself.
Summary: A really great and underrated game. When it comes to games in this genre - Broken Sword, Day of the Tenticle, Grim fandango etc - Curse of Monkey Island is the very best. I have never had so much fun playing any game, even when compared to the latest 3D games. It's addicting and fun and funny and smart and stupid. Smartly stupid.
Summary: Je pensais avoir atteint le nirvana avec les deux premiers volets. Je me trompais : The Curse of Monkey Island est une pure pépite, encore plus amusant que les précédents, tant en terme de d'humour que de gameplay (quoiqu'il faille un léger temps pour s'adapter à la nouvelle interface) et, quoi qu'en dise mon prédécesseur, passionnant du début à la fin, notamment de par son story-telling irréprochable accompagné de textes soignés et parfaitement joués.
