Summary: This is a game that will have a huge following with some gamers, but most with hate it just for it's genre and not give it a chance. There are many great things about this game, but to me there are just too many bad things. In the good catagory monkey island has great graphics.
Summary: I think if you have the patience to figure out senseless puzzles, then this is for you.. but i really dont see the point of a game that you MUST, and believe me you MUST, but the guide to get through. A yawner for me.
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.
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.
