    Hilarious, perfectly paced, and just the right amount of difficulty. Very few puzzles are total stumpers.
  2. This is what an adventure game should be: easy to look at, great puzzles and sound, simple interaction, humour, solid writing and the power to transport the player somewhere else for some fun.
  3. Some ill-chosen puzzles, a fatigued conclusion -- no matter, really. You'll be smiling too much to give it much notice. This is nothing less than perfectly perfected perfection. If you like monkeys, anyway.

    While the glitches are definitely frustrating, and the polish is lacking at times, overall this is a welcome return to the eeps and oops of your childhood.

    The biggest change Escape from Monkey Island has undergone is its change to 3D. Far from ruining the game, as many fans feared, this makes EMI the best-looking Monkey Island title yet.
  6. The lack of mouse support is both shocking and somewhat unforgivable... (yet) EMI will provide hours of intelligent and silly gameplay.
  7. EFMI brings nothing new to the table. It will not attract a new generation of gamers and was made for the hardcore adventure gamer who enjoyed the previous episodes.

    As always with the Monkey Island series, it is great!!!! This is the kind of game i like, there aren't many of this kind of games. The As always with the Monkey Island series, it is great!!!! This is the kind of game i like, there aren't many of this kind of games. The puzzels where great and not to difficult. Only one puzzle i just couldn't solve, and unfortunatley had to use the walktrough. It was the puzzle where you need to throw the rocks into the canals. That was a little far fetched. Expand
