Summary: i remember playing monkey island 1 & 2 on the pc years ago, and they're just as delightful now. their light humour and charm is still fresh, and the new new artwork adds a pretty veneer to what are fine games
Summary: This has to be one of the best games I've ever played. 'Monkey Island' is one of those feel good games that you can't stop playing until you've completed it. It has everything from charming, witty and loveable characters, beautiful 2D style graphics and a fantastic storyline to match. A prime example of a 5 star game in my opinion.
Summary: ..it's let down by the constant installing required seemingly every time I load it. Most games require updates, but most don't take 20 minutes every time. Perhaps I'm just being impatient. I remember the days when games would take hours to load up, but in this day and age you expect to just pop in a disk and start playing. Very annoying. The game itself is fantastic.
Summary: If, like me, you loved this game when it was originally released then you won't be disappointed with the PS3 version. It's been tidied up graphics wise, but hasn't lost any of the charm/humour. I was worried it wouldn't do the original justice, but I couldn't have been more wrong.
Summary: This was one of my all time fave games on the Amiga 500! so i had to double take when i saw it for the PS3 and didnt hesitate snapping it up. I agree with the first reviewer than i doubt the younger generation will find it that good because it is very much old skool gameplay and not amazing 3D effects. However id imagine that the target audience was those that enjoyed it the first time around as opposed to new comers.
Summary: Played these monkey island games in my youth for hours and loved them, This version brings the game up to date with nice cartoon like graphics without changing the gameplay. This game is probably not for everyone, but if you like fun puzzle like games or played the original you will love this. Also loved the fact by pressing the 'select' button it instantly changes the game back to the original graphics, great touch to remind you of the originl classic.
