WHAT WENT WRONG???
3 December 2005
Summary: This is the worst Monkey Island game out of all of them - it is simply terrible! Each Monkey Island game went from strength to strength (2 and 3 being the best) but this has hit rock bottom! For a start it has some of the most rushed and crap graphics of a game in recent years and it just isn't... FUNNY!!!! Please avoid, buy the curse of monkey island instead, it is much better! This is very, very bad and an insult to all Monkey Island fans!
Summary: I got this game for christmas. It was cool at first and i thought it was brilliant. But that's when i found out that all you do in the game is say the right things to the right people and you get rewarded. That sound fun? Well it's not. It takes ages to get rewarded and it's just fustrating that you can't draw a sword out it's sheath and slash your enemy to pieces.
What can I say, it's a point-and-click adventure game

Summary: This genre is dying out for a reason. The endless barrage of "jokes," the incomprehensible puzzles, the slow gameplay; all of these are present in every game of this genre ever made. Monkey Island seemed fun (and funny) at first, but after a couple of hours, you just stop laughing. And then there's no reason to continue playing.
