Did You Know?


The reference to the Anti-LeChuck having 1138 stamped on his forehead is a reference to George Lucas's early film, THX 1138 (1971). Also, in the swamp on Lucre island, one of the choices for the number Guybrush is thinking of is 1138. See more »

9 February 2002 | by (The Tri-Island Area) – See all my reviews

Honestly, the most fun I've ever had on a PC. Other games I've got-Max Payne, Quake 3, Carmageddon TDR. I don't really have the patience for 'quick-reflex' games, but EMI really entetains me. I play it every Christmas since the day I got it (X-Mas) and it never seases to make you laugh out loud.

The only gripe is the 3d. Remember 1997-CMI? Still looks great, huh?

Three years later and this has aged-I dis-like 3D 'cos it goes obsolete so soon. Why, oh, why, not a CMI engine game.

DO yourself a favour, open a new window, go to and buy MM2: Day of the tentacle, Sam and Max, Full throttle and the monkey island bounty pack and EMI. You'll then be ready to live, my son.
