  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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]
  6. 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.
  7. The worst thing is that you can't skip the dialogue. [July 2010, p.91]
