  • Summary: [WiiWare] Conspiracies, betrayal and shocking revelations as the Tales of Monkey Island intensity builds. Guybrush returns to Flotsam Island, but forget about a hero's welcome. Handed over to De Singe by the backstabbing Morgan LeFlay, Guybrush is seized by an angry mob and put on trial. With a silk-tongued prosecutor in his face and a hangman's noose dangling over his neck, Guybrush must figure out how to defend himself against grave accusations. Meanwhile, the determined Marquis sets his sights on a new and far more attractive test subject. How on earth will the Mighty Pirate get out of this mess? The monthly Tales of Monkey Island tension continues to mount in The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood. Brace yourself for a shocking revelation that will rock the world of Monkey Island to its core. [Nintendo] Collapse

  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.
  3. The series continues to entertain and the twist at the end of this one is a cracker. [Feb 2010, p.85]
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. While a necessity to continue exploring the series, this is not one of the best episodes so far.
