  1. Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island is an old-school point'n'click adventure, with an interesting gameplay. Its visuals, by Bill Tiller, are amazing, and the scenarios feel like the main characters of this adventure.
  2. So is Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island as good as The Curse of Monkey Island? Not really. The truly funny moments can be counted on one hand, and the puzzles lack that spark of genius that could have made Bill Tiller's latest offering a memorable one.
  3. Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island is not the best adventure made by Bill Tiller and has flaws, like the terrible ending, that show a lack of polishing. That said, the nice art direction, a world rich of details and the possibility to switch between three different characters make It good enough for all the fans.
  4. Even weaker than Autumn Moons A Vampyre Story, this game lacks all the polish, finesse and fun that you should expect from a modern adventure. Some visuals and characters are half-decent, though.
  5. Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island isn't a terrible game, but having recently completed Telltale Game's wonderful Tales of Monkey Island series it's clear Ghost Pirates is aspiring for a similar experience while falling short in nearly every aspect.
  6. A series of small issues prevent it from shining as brightly as it could have, but its fun puzzles in a cool setting make Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island an entertaining adventure.
  7. Yes, it is a quality game with high-end graphics and superb voice-acting, but it also seems to be pretty much 'by-the-numbers' let's get this finished and hope we get better distribution and make more money than we did with Dreamcatcher so we can move on to our next project type of game.
  8. The fun and invention at the heart of Ghost Pirates make it a marginal improvement over the equally likable A Vampyre Story. [Apr 2010, p.126]
  9. Worthy competitor to Monkey Island, this series scores with beautiful "hand-painted" graphics, lovely atmosphere and pleasurable playability. Three characters mean three times the fun. [Issue#186]
  10. A little step further than A Vampire Story, Ghost Pirates is a good adventure in an inspired setting, but it shows some problems related to its youth. Perfection is still far but graphic and characters save the project.
  11. Perfectly good puzzle design and art direction let down by haphazard writing and animation. Decent, but nothing great. [Aug 2010, p.60]
  12. The jokes are tired. [Mar 2010, p.95]
  13. The puzzles are the main problem. [May 2010, p.90]
  14. The worst thing is that you can't skip the dialogue. [July 2010, p.91]
