  • Summary: [Playstation Network] While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat Pirate Hunter and a creepy French Physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem. Who can Guybrush trust? Where can he turn? Everything you think you know will be challenged as Tales of Monkey Island builds to its unexpected finale. [Telltale Games] Expand

    Tales of Monkey Island is an extremely funny romp that is well worth its meager price tag.
  4. Once clear of its port of origin, this clever, humorous tale unfurls its sails and becomes a thoroughly entertaining swashbuckling adventure.

    Although there's a few solutions that were totally nonsensical (which is part of the monkey island thing, but it came down to 15 minutes of the same sequence so I could try out another thing from my inventory, and it was the item that I thought "there's no way this will work"). Still, that doesn't really stop it from being a great game. It's got top-notch humor, great puzzles, and decent voice acting. Well, that might stem from hearing the same lines multiple times (usually my own fault), but overall a great game. If you like this style of game, you'll love this. Expand

    Loved it. Played it in one sitting and it held up to the idolised Monkey Islands of my youth. Overall the puzzles were about the right difficulty. I hope they release another series. Expand

    Fun for kids and adults alike. My kids loved the humor so much I had to buy the remastered versions of the first two for them. Has the monkey island feeling that brings a sense of nostalgia to the older fans of the series while keeping the kiddies entertained. Expand
