  1. I simply cannot wait to see the conclusion, and am already hoping Season Two comes along sometime next year.

    Telltale Games is definitely on a roll, with Episode 4: The Trial & Execution of Guybrush Threepwood not matching, but actually surpassing the previous three chapters overall in order to help continue the great revival of the Monkey Island brand.

    The series continues to entertain and the twist at the end of this one is a cracker. [Feb 2010, p.85]
  4. Granted, this chapter isn't quite as fun as the previous three. However, chapter four is a great, story-driven addition that ties various characters and plotlines together more than earlier chapters.
  5. There's been nothing wrong with the gameplay in the series so far, and obviously nothing changes here. The puzzles aren't really too hard to figure out if you pay attention to what the characters say, meaning you should once again plow through the whole thing in about 2 to 3 hours.
  6. While a necessity to continue exploring the series, this is not one of the best episodes so far.

    Best episode in the series so far; excellent adventure game and works great on the Wii!
