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...
Summary: I've been playing this for around 8 hours,I've probably achieved very little,as every item/person has to have about 2 hours worth of narrative to go with it,every time you look at something or,heaven forbid,talk to someone you get reams of dialogue,when you are trying to work some crap puzzle out you don't want to hear the same tired prose over and over,it was barely funny the first time,don't make me listen to it again...
Summary: Escape From Monkey Island is the last halfway decent game that Lucasarts made (and perhaps the last decent one that they'll ever make). It uses a similar control system to Grim Fandango which suits the PS2 fine since it is much easier to steer Guybrush around with a joypad than with a keyboard. Gameplay is entertaining enough with a variety of enjoyable environments and a great many puzzles to solve, some of them quite ingenious.
Summary: Alright, the guys name is supposed top be stupid, but I geuss some stupid 11 year olds brain can compute that. Ok, it ain't the best game in the world, bu the game is meant to be dumb. Dumb as in humnerous. This game really puts the mind to work, if you think the entire game is about talking to people your just stupid, you are probably failing math, and you don't even try to figure out what it's about before you critisize.
Summary: I am a massive fan of the monkey island trilogy and I absolutely loved the previous three games of the set. The game is excellent in the beginning, a great storyline chocked full of it's usual witty puzzles in fact at this stage the games only downfall was the addition of keyboard movement and not mouse movement which i didnt like.
