Summary

Yikes, I turned the woman I love into a gold statue!

The Good

EVERYTHING an MI fan could hope for! I laughed most at two points, while visiting the vegetarian cannibals, and while listening to and watching the "Bottomless Mug Policy" sequence. MI 1 & 2 were good, but this game has succeeded in beating it's prequels with humor, fun, & graphics. Oh yeah! The wonderful Monkey Island music has really used the new abilities in digital-world to make the originally great music MP3 quality!

The Bad

I have MI in my e-mail address, do you really think I would find anything wrong with this game?

The Bottom Line

Listen, this is a great game that anybody, except maybe die hard fans of violent shooters, should enjoy, as the voodoo lady would say, "I advise you to buy this game..."
