  • Summary: While being a departure to the style of the first 2 monkey island games which had a darker tone, The Curse of Monkey is one of the best Lucas Art adventure games of the 90s. Having very memorable game moments, very funny witty humour, great atmospheric music, and beautiful styled graphics - I love...

  • Summary: I got this game when it came out years ago and spent and entire weekend with my friend from across the street completing it. I recently picked it up again and played through and if anything my enthusiasm for the game increased.

  • Summary: There is little else to be said about the quality of the remake, graphically and audibly. It is superb. Character animations, voice acting, and backdrops look terrific. The most significant problem with the game is little of the game play was changed.

Adventure gaming in it's prime

  • Summary: This is probally the finest example for Monkey Island rookies to start playing at..While the other two before it were praised for their innovations and humor, the graphics are just too pixelated for many of today's gamers to take seriously.

Swashbuckling Fun

Linda Fithian, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a great time playing this game. It wasn't frustratingly difficult (like Myst) or too easy (like Freddie Fish) but just right for a kid who wants a challenge or an adult that doesn't want a long term commitment. The characters are wonderful.

Challenging

  • Summary: The Curse of Monkey Island, although for children you would think, requires much skill as to solving puzzles as well as some witty insults. I think that this is a good and challenging game for everyone, it is also very amusing.

Great game

Jay Jeon, Amazon

  • Summary: Like its predecessors, the Curse of Monkey Island sets another example of a great adventure game full of wit, humor, and excitement. The beautiful graphics, music, and intricate plot all seem to harmonize with each other so well, I really got the feeling that LucasArts has a lot of talented people.

Rather Timeless

Amazon
21 July 2001
  • Summary: The graphics are so unique and they make no attempt to be realistic so even amidst newer games, curse of monkey island holds its own. The voices are good and the jokes are great. I took one star off because unless you like to be boggled this game isn't for you.
