  1. Though many Monkey Island fans will disagree I found this to be the least humorous and immersive of the series and it falls short of the overall quality of "Grim Fandango."

    The real problem here is the shoulder-saggingly illogical puzzles. If you're a Monkey Island fan this is a bitter disappointment and if you're not you'll wonder what on earth all the fuss is about.
  3. EMI is not a bad game but it will never join its brethren in the panoply of gods of the genre. I for one would like to see LucasArts get out of the sequel to sequel to sequel business altogether and focus solely on new ideas.
  4. EFMI brings nothing new to the table. It will not attract a new generation of gamers and was made for the hardcore adventure gamer who enjoyed the previous episodes.

I get it that it was a game that (for some reason) had a PS2 release, but the PC version should have been able to utilize the mouse as lining up Guybrush using use the arrow keys to get anywhere is just impossible. Not to mention the poor keybinds that spreads everything across the keyboard. Just what was LucasArts thinking? Full Review »
