After playing, and enjoying this game for so long, you really need an ending that gives you a sense of completion and satisfaction. Unfortunately, CMI fails to deliver it. The ending is extremely brief and anticlimatic. With the ending aside, The Curse of Monkey Island is a wonderful game that no adventure gamer should be without. Period. I can safely say that no other game has given me this degree of enjoyment.
Whether you're looking for a good adventure, or just a good laugh, beautiful animation, or great sound, there's something for everyone in this game. It is an excellent value, and will certainly become a gaming classic.
In essence, what adds real finesse to Curse of Monkey Island is that no one element screams above the rest for recognition. It possesses that "unity of style" across the board for which everyone strives but so few achieve.
As with a good book, this game demands attention and you won'twant to stop playing it. It's a lot of fun to laugh, especially atthis signature brand of humor. With its cartoonish artwork, crisp soundeffects, and brilliant character acting, Monkey will draw you inand have you laughing for a long time.
At first, I thought that this game would cast a curse upon me, turn me into a monkey or something. But no, it really did not.
This game is beyond being decent. It has its great moments, interesting puzzles and game mechanisms that you cannot find on today's game market. It is and will be remembered as a classic.
Anyways, I couldn't be bothered to type more in this over-exaggerated manner. Just take my word for it, this game is awesome.
I cant really add anything to the points already said in other reviews, but it was a really funny and enjoyable experience troughout the entire game and i was surprised by myself that i remembered nearly every thing and had to use the guide only to times
Pirate point and click adventure with fun puzzles and typical, weird, awkward, morbid Monkey Island humor. This is my favorite of the series. The graphics are 100% different than in the first or second game, but this unique style is just perfect for the atmosphere. Even over 20 years after release i still love playing through The Curse Of Monkey Island now and then. So many good memories and a comforting, uplifting distraction from real life. It's a "simple" game (like point and click adventures usually are) but you can feel it has heart.
A mus play for point and click adventurers!
An amazing game, the art-style is unique and looks fantastic, the point-and-click game-play is very fun and it has a great coin-menu, that is very good for these types of games(and I, at least, haven't seen it in any other game, would have loved to also have it in the other Monkey Island games, but I think this one is the only one that uses this system.)
The music is awesome and fits perfectly the style of the game and the settings, as well as the environmental effects, which are very well used in the scenes to create atmosphere. The voice-acting is brilliant, and I would especially credit the person who voiced Guybrush, who is just such a loveable character and the voice fits perfect.
Puzzels are fun and varied, and can also get very hard at the mega-monkey difficulty.
I can not find any faults with this game, and I actually find it as a perfect adventure game, and therefor I give it a perfect score! One of the best games of all time.
