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...
