Cheat Code Central
4 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The graphics, actual gameplay, and quality voice work have changed very little over the course of the first four chapters, and we expect that will follow suit in the grand finale.

  • Summary: The Screaming Narwhal might seem like a strange name for a Caribbean pirate ship, but in the world of Monkey Island, that kind of eccentricity is par for the course. In years past, the Monkey Island series earned a cult following for its quirky humor and entertaining adventures.
  • Pros: Quirky sense of humor, Puzzles often require clever solutions, A few memorable characters
  • Cons: Frame rate is sluggish, Some environmental art oddities

Review: Tales of Monkey Island

N-Europe
3 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Even with its share of problems, Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is a great first step that tickled the funny bone and left a good taste in our mouth. Let's hope the next one is more polished.
  • Pros: Good humour, Return of a legend, Fine Leather Jackets
  • Cons: A bit too easy, Lousy character design, Little replay value, Bad framerate & audio compression

  • Conclusion: Ich bin seit der ersten Stunde ein Fan von Monkey Island und liebe diese Spieleserie, weil sie einfach erfrischend anders ist, im Vergleich zu dem restlichen Einheitsbrei, der einem heutzutage serviert wird, und das alte Genre "Adventure" noch am Leben erhält (Danke Telltale Games!).

  • Excerpt: Suivant de près la sortie du jeu sur PC, le premier chapitre de Tales of Monkey Island nous arrive à présent sur Wii. Disponible pour 1 000 points dans le catalogue WiiWare, cette version nous refait le coup de Sam & Max et se révèle techniquement très en dessous de l'originale.
