  • Summary: When we left Guybrush Threepwood, he'd just escaped the mysterious winds of Flotsam Island aboard the well-meaning sailing ship The Screaming Narwhal. However, his hand is still cursed, and LeChuck--now in human form--seems, from a distance, to be courting fair Elaine's favor. To top it all, he's been intercepted by a mysterious figure, yet unrevealed. I wonder what happens next. [Telltale Games] Expand

  1. Tales of Monkey Island: Episode Two manages to be better than the first one in many, many ways.
  2. You should play the first episode anyway because it's great, and this edition only continues the winning tradition.
  3. If you liked the first part of the Tales of Monkey Island series, you surely must have The Siege of Spinner Cay. More fun and better gameplay are yours then.
  4. The final impression is quite positive, prizing an offer that is able to take its place in the adventures' market and not only for the brand itself. Guybrus & Co. are just more great stuff on a great game anyway.
  5. The puzzles are solid enough, too. [Dec 2009, p.75]
  6. After a great start, this chapter seriously falls off. [Nov 2009, p.100]
  7. A disappointing second chapter that's short on comedy, game length and decent puzzles.

    The second installment in the TOMI series, "The Siege of Spinner Cay" takes place instantaneous after the proceeding first chapter and delves the player straight into action. Unfortunately this title suffers from the dreaded sophomore slump in which it fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. Long time fans of the Monkey Island franchise might also be disappointed in both the setting and freshly introduced characters. While it isn't a bad effort by any means it (at times) simply doesn't feel worthy of being a M.I. game as it's quite different. Expand
