Telltale Games continues to successfully introduce the world of Monkey Island to a whole new audience whilst keeping long-term fans satisfied with great gameplay, rib-tickling humour and plenty of nods to past outings. Episode 3 Lair of the Leviathan is every bit as good as the last two entries, if not better thanks to some much-welcomed tweaks.
Overall, the gameplay stays the same, albeit with some neat little Insult Sword Fighting puzzles thrown in to spice it up a bit. Guybrush is still crazily funny and a bit on the slow side (other characters are finding this out as well) while the story takes us on a great ride through laughs, puzzles, relationships and adventure. Anyone should be able to jump right into this chapter, but playing the first two would really help understand the story. When it comes to fans of the old game though, this chapter really shines.
In terms of gameplay, chapter 3 of Tales of Monkey Island is obviously not much different from the previous games. There are some fun puzzles included, but they're still nothing more than figuring out what object to use with what other object. This episode is easily the best yet in terms of humour though, Murray alone makes this absolutely hilarious and is guaranteed to satisfy any fan of the old Monkey Island games. Yes, the audio and visual hiccups are still present, but by this point, we really don't expect Telltale to do anything this annoyance in the WiiWare version anymore.
