Trivia

There used to be a department somewhere within Industrial Light and Magic, that was tasked with writing screenplays for animated films based on Lucasfilm's intellectual property from other media. One such screenplay was a Monkey Island movie, entitled "The Curse of Monkey Island", likely loosely based on the game of the same name. In the big reorganization of Lucasfilm that occurred a couple of years ago the department was killed and the MI movie (still in preproduction) with it. See more »

Goofs

The previous game Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge (1991) (VG) ended very strangely: Guybrush finds himself as small kid with his "brother" LeChuck and his "parents" in an amusement park. In the beginning of this game, Guybrush is on the sea in a floating bumper car. No explanation is given what happened in between. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Guybrush Threepwood: [voiceover] Captain's log: Guybrush Threepwood. Lost at sea for days now. I have no crew or navigational instruments. No provisions except a half-eaten corn-dog and, unless I find water soon, I'm surely done for. Only the hope of finding my love, Elaine, keeps me going.

My favorite in the Monkey Island Series
20 February 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Great game! I love the Romance involved too, I don't care if I sound soppy, but this game would be good in a movie! Definitely my favorite in the entire Monkey Island series! In some places, you are close to tears...

10/10
