  1. Telltale's production quality is remarkable, and they must be commended for at least pushing the series violently towards what is sure to be a fascinating climax. However, the game must also be criticized for the inconsistency of its flow and the near-complete lack of original locations and characters (Stan's delightful return notwithstanding).
  2. Another disappointing chapter in the increasingly uneven adventures of gaming's mightiest pirate.

    It's true that the jokes aren't as funny this time around but the puzzles are challenging without being frustrating, which should help you see this one through to a satisfying conclusion.

    Wittiness took a short vacation this time compared to previous chapters – nevertheless Monkey Island still keeps its high standards in every aspect. [Dec 2009]
  5. Worldplay, grog and atmosphere, but still quite weak puzzles - the fourth episode of Tales of Monkey Island offers good entertainment, including the well known problems of all episodes so far. Only the great presentation prevents the game from mediocrity.
