    Impossible! Without a walkthrough I never had a chance. Bad storyline. Too repetitive

    Its not bad, but age has certainly been harsh to this game while its predecessors are still as good as they day they first came out of the box. Many of the puzzles are baffling and Monkey Kombat just plain sucks. Please, go back to 2D animation and the CMI interface.

    Fun game, but disappointing ending. Monkey Kombat is not as witty as previous MI games' insult fighting. I ran across a few technical glitches in the game play. The best part is exploring the islands, and talking with characters, but the puzzles themselves are a bit boring.

    This game would be a good adventure if it hadn't the "Monkey Island" name on the box. Good adventure game, BAAAAD Monkey Island sequel (it's the 4th installment).

  1. The humor is droll but affecting, and the game play so well laid out that this program has to be considered a worthy sequel to its predecessor.
  2. Players who're new to the Monkey Island series may get the sense while playing the game that they're watching a bunch of old friends regale each other with old in-jokes; it's easy to feel as if you're being left out of the fun if you don't catch the references.
  3. EMI is not a bad game but it will never join its brethren in the panoply of gods of the genre. I for one would like to see LucasArts get out of the sequel to sequel to sequel business altogether and focus solely on new ideas.
