Summary: I loved this game so much. I bought this version of Escape From Monkey Island for nostalgia alone. I was sceptic to play at first being the first console port of the series. But after playing it threw I saw that the same great game was there. The controls are great as well. Looks good and its not two disks like the PC so its that much quicker too.
Summary: I recently watched a tv prog, on video games and this was in the top 30 id never heard of it but it came across a bit different from the norm.although it was first created for a bbc computer back in the 80's.Trawled through Amazon to discover it was also made later on for the Playstation 2.it was only a couple of pounds so bought it.Although grahics are decent and story line is funny and unique I couldn't get to grips with it or progress more than a couple of minutes...
The worst Monkey Island game is still a great game...

Summary: My personal favourite is 'Curse of Monkey Island' followed by 'Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge' 'Tales of Monkey Island' and 'The Secret of Monkey Island' - this game comes in fifth place as the conversion to 3d was a step in the wrong direction but was all the rage at the time. There are still some great lines like 'That's the second biggest monkey head I've ever seen!', although the Monkey Kombat was not enjoyable and dragged the game down for me.
Summary: I love this game! I bought it to play with my boyfriend at the time and it was great fun. It is something two people can play together too as you can discover clues together and work things out together.
Summary: After playing curse of monkey island on PC (a fantastic game) I was keen to see what the playstation game was like, but this is terrible - the graphics are shoddy and the game play is near impossible to get your head around. I spent nearly half an hour doing the same thing over and over because I couldn't work out what to do next - take my advise - ditch this for the original PC game.
Summary: This is easily the most annoying and pointless game I've ever made the mistake of buying. It gets nothing right; terrible graphics, boring and unimaginative gameplay, rubbish voice acting and some of the lamest attempts at humour I've ever heard.
