SummaryGood but didn't shiver me timbers
The GoodAfter a very long wait Monkey Island is finally back on our shores. Now I have to admit Ive been quite a big fan of Telltale's episodic adventures and this is one of their best yet. Some of the puzzles are classic monkey island and the sound puzzle is particularly good. Nice to finally see Monkey Island back.
The BadOne of my biggest problems is the fact Telltale have used the same engine as they did for the Sam and Max games. Monkey Island should be 2D and hand drawn. I wish this series looked more like the Original remake rather than the way it does. Also I kinda want a proper HUD. Monkey Island needs a shot in the arm... by which i mean it needs to take about 10 steps back and do what it did all those years ago... but with better graphics. Its a good game and a good start to a new series but it could have been one of the best things to hit these shores in years.
