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.

The best Monkey Island. Hands down!
23 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

The 3rd installment in the brilliant Monkey Island series is undoubtably the best. Guybrush Threepwood is back with his usual antics, only this time it's in sound!

The graphics is of huge improvement in this game. It's kind of Disney-type drawings rounded off by a stunning background. The voicing is excellent and becomes incredibly funny towards the late beginning of the game. Murray, the talking skull is classic, and Denny Delk does a smashing job as the poor fella.

The game has a great plot and very loveable characters, and although you miss Ron Gilbert's fantastic directing, the new crew does what Gilbert did about just about as good as the big man. Overall, Monkey Island 3 is without a doubt the best installment in the briliant computer game series.
