Fun for kids and adults alike. My kids loved the humor so much I had to buy the remastered versions of the first two for them. Has the monkey island feeling that brings a sense of nostalgia to the older fans of the series while keeping the kiddies entertained.
Although there's a few solutions that were totally nonsensical (which is part of the monkey island thing, but it came down to 15 minutes of the same sequence so I could try out another thing from my inventory, and it was the item that I thought "there's no way this will work"). Still, that doesn't really stop it from being a great game. It's got top-notch humor, great puzzles, and decent voice acting. Well, that might stem from hearing the same lines multiple times (usually my own fault), but overall a great game. If you like this style of game, you'll love this.
I really wish the first episode didn't exist because I feel like it will turn people away from this series compared to the other 4 episodes. The rest of the series is good overall, and I'd imagine that it takes the same kind of witty and charm that the Monkey Island series is known for. While I don't really know much about this series, the final episode really makes me want to learn more about it. Overall Tales of Monkey Island is a great call back to the series, and a good witty puzzle/ adventure game.
As a long term fan of the series having played all the previous Lucas Art games, especially the monkey island games - this was a good effort to say the least. Although the story was not amazing but i liked the puzzle solving and how they made it into a 5 episodic saga. The familiar characters, the art style, good Old Elaine, Le Chuck, Vodoo Lady were very well welcomed i would say. I enjoyed playing it on console and the game ran without any problems. It has a good length and can be quite tedious if you are not well versed with the game, especially trying to get all trophies without a guide. All in all, happy that this happened and i really hope the rights are sold to Ron Gilbert and we see a new beginning.
A fair sequel to the Monkey Island franchise with the same gameplay than the originals (the first good game of Telltale games in my opinion, and it was before they found their formula with The Walking Dead). The puzzles are slightly more logical than in the first ones, even if they're still have some illogical things going around.
On the bad side the game is pretty ugly (I've seen PS2 games prettier), and the point part of this point and click could be better in the way that you actually have a pointer, not by selecting things with L2 and R2.
But all in all they respected the franchise and succeed in making a fun and challenging game.
