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.

Best of the 4!
2 December 2002 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

After finishing Escape from Monkey Island just recently i sat back and reviewed all 4 of the saga in my head! The first 2 monkey islands are brilliant and are a landmark for adventure gaming genre! LeChucks revenge just eclipsing the first outing! Escape from Monkey Island is a tough one because it has a completely different control system and a new graphic engine. So this kinda ruined the jokes within the game that would of been preferably suited to graphic such as in the curse of Monkey Island!

The Curse of Monkey Island is the 3rd outing of the series, and the best of the series too! Once again you play Guybrush Threepwood (who has some great and funny voice acting throughout) who is trying to lift the curse that he accidently puts onto his love, Eleein Marley. The animation to this game was brilliant for its time and actually really suits the game because with the cartooney graphics, you can relate to the jokes within the game more appropriately!

There's some old characters from the past 2 games and some great new ones too (especially Murray the demonic skull, who had me in tears throughout!). Voice acting is fantastic and suited there characters.

If they brought out a film i hope it is an animated one and they relate to this game when thinking of a story line! This is a gem of a game and it is given a 9/10 from me!

9/10 ;o)
