[PS2 version reviewed here] The hero of Monkey Island is Guybrush Threepwood, dim-witted do-gooder, famous vanquisher of the Demon Zombie Ghost Pirate LeChuck.

  • Conclusion: Passionnant et à la portée de tous, doté d'un scénario original rehaussé de nombreux dialogues et de situations hilarantes, impeccablement réalisé malgré une animation dégradée par les accès disques… on peut dire sans hésiter que Monkey Island est un des meilleurs jeux d'aventure sur PS2.

  • Conclusion: De eerste conversie van de pc klassieker naar de PS2 is een voltreffer. Het is naar goede Monkey Island gewoonte een prachtig spel geworden, met hilarische momenten. Enige probleem: zit de gemiddelde PS2 gebruiker op dit soort adventures te wachten?
  • Pros: graphics hilarisch gameplay
  • Cons: traag niet voor iedereen soms wat moeilijk ???
