    Everything that made EFMI so great on the PC arrives on the PS2 perfectly intact. The game’s many puzzles are perfectly balanced.

    Great graphics that remain true to the series' roots, wonderful animation, the classic Monkey Island humor is present in full force.
  3. You really can’t go wrong with this finale to a LucasArts legacy, so be sure not to miss the boat. [Aug 2001, p.111]
  4. You hardcore adventurers already love it, and you newbies out there are in for a real treat, and you are to be envied.
  5. Not a traditional type of game we expect to see on a home console. This quality PC conversion only begs the question, "why haven't we?" May the seaweed be with you!

    It looks good, it's easy to control, it has classic puzzles, and more than anything, it's a heck of a laugh. All that, and monkeys to boot.

    As a devoted Monkey Island fan, I found it to be an excellent 4th chapter in a great series of games. I preferred it in the classic cartoon media, but Lucasarts have pulled it off as a computer animated title that is a joy to play. Some problems with loading times. Full Review »
