Summary

I think "The Curse of Monkey Island" had the best review for this game...

The Good

In "The Curse of Monkey Island," Guybrush Threepwood speaks with a ferryman who's been lost in the mists for a long time now. Here's what Guybrush had to say about the boatman's experience:

"I like mist. I think it's pretty."

The Bad

The boatman's response to Guybrush's statement:

"Of course it's pretty, but egads, is it DULL!"

The Bottom Line

That conversation alone describes the game.

There's no story and no point to the game. There isn't even an ending. Your reward for finishing the game is to read all those freakin' books all over again. That's enough to make me want to put my foot through the monitor, but I'd rather just play frisbee with my dog using the CD.
