It took me a couple of days to convince myself, because at the beginning Return to Monkey Island seemed to be a victim of the hype: what should we have expected, in fact, from those who wrote the rules of the game and today it goes down again in the arena after thirty 'years? But then I became more and more immersed in the crazy archipelago invented by Ron Gilbert and I can not help but promote the work with flying colors. Only, always remember to face it in difficult mode, because with the "casual" one you would end up getting only a small percentage of the achievements and missing out on much of the more "cerebral" fun.
Return to Monkey Island is a game that any fan of the series should love (regardless of its initially unorthodox art style) and one that players can tailor to their particular skill level. Having spent many hours navigating its treacherous islands, sailing its high seas, and matching wits (and swords) with an endearingly quirky cast of characters, I can easily say that this is one adventure you won’t want to miss the boat on.
Its graphic touch may have changed drastically (rightly), the Monkey Island saga retains all its shimmering and sassy aura in this episode, in particular thanks to a writing that is still as clever and a really fantastic soundtrack. Return to Monkey Island is a fresh, modern adventure that strikes a good balance between nostalgia and novelty.
No one asked Guybrush to return, but he came anyway and crashed his own party. In the beginning, you try your best to acclimate to the unusual visual style, hoping that your patience will eventually pay off. In the end, you wonder how they managed to screw up a decent game with such a vile ending.
Entretenido y cumple perfectamente con la nostalgia, que al final es lo llamativo de este título.
También creo que si no fuese Monkey Island con todo su lore el mismo juego sería un 5 o menos.
Es un título que merece la pena solo si viviste los inicios, no solo por la nostalgia, si no para entender el motivo por el que este género a día de hoy es muy difícil de verlo y de que triunfe realmente.
Música, guión y guiños de la historia.
El género, creo que no podían hacerlo mucho mejor en nada, pero no da más de sí.
The worst game of the serie.
Short, easy, with zero original idea, horrible graphics and a very bad plot that relies on continuous nostalgia moments and ends in the worst way possible. A few time the humour made me laugh, that's the most positive thing I can say.
Only play it if you are a huge fan of Guybrush, but expect to be disappointed.
