The episode is considerably longer than the last few. I was surprised and pleased to finish the trial and find substantial head-scratchers left to solve. As with all these adventures, there's little reason to revisit them once you've finished. That's just the nature of this particular beast, though. Digest it and spend a month waiting for the next one.
Episode four of the Tales of Monkey Island leaves me undecided: I like that there are more puzzles in the game, but overall this episode offers too much of a dejavu-feeling, resulting in a good, but not very good episode.
Tales of Monkey Island Ep. 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood as already mentioned under review is the best chapter in the series for both the technical part that for the dialogue, with the exception of the riddles here bound to a marginal and secondary. Recommended to all those who have already played the previous chapters and is recommended for new share from the first episode not to miss one of the best adventures of recent years.
Telltale's production quality is remarkable, and they must be commended for at least pushing the series violently towards what is sure to be a fascinating climax. However, the game must also be criticized for the inconsistency of its flow and the near-complete lack of original locations and characters (Stan's delightful return notwithstanding).
SummaryThe moment you've been waiting for is here! Come get The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood, the fourth chapter of Tales of Monkey Island and find out what happens when Guybrush is handed over to De Singe by the treacherous Morgan Le Flay back on Flotsam. [Telltale Games]
