  • Summary: [WiiWare] Guybrush's adventures continue on the high seas as pox-plagued pirates lay siege to the innocent Mer-People. In between defending the Mer-People and dodging the persistent pirate hunter hot on his trail, Guybrush manages to catch up to his beloved wife and despised arch-nemesis -- but their reunion is short-lived. Now Guybrush must focus on eradicating the Pox of LeChuck before more harm can be done. And as the Mighty Pirate draws closer to a cure, the waters will only grow murkier in this thrilling chapter of the epic saga. [Nintendo] Expand

    If you enjoyed Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, then The Siege of Spinner Cay is an essential purchase.
  2. So far, the story is great, the puzzles are wonderful, and the script represents some of the best writing in the industry.
  3. Exploring multiple island locations is a natural progression, and the action continues unfettered.
  4. The Siege of Spinner Cay feels better than the first chapter in nearly every aspect, so even if it still has its problems, fans should give it a try.
  5. The Siege of Spinner Cay will tide you over, but it won't blow you away.
  6. The Siege of Spinner Cay feels like a rerun of the first chapter. It's not better or worse and the principle and tone are comparable. The third chapter at last promises a twist, at least that's what the closing scene shows. And that's a good thing, because five times the same thing would get tedious.

    Telltale has another solid outing in this episode, and it's cool to see the story start to come together. Plus, the next episode looks to have a completely cool and unexpected setting, so we're looking forward to seeing where this all goes. It's just too bad Telltale can't get these games running well on the Wii.
