Did You Know?


When you are trying to pick up or use the trees standing around Pegnose Pete's secret bounty cave, Guybrush answers he's done with tossing cabers. Winning a game of caber tossing was one of the things Guybrush had to do in the previous game, The Curse of Monkey Island (1997). See more »

The best of the four...
17 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Normally, sequels are worse than their predecessors. This is generally more true for movies than computer games, but mostly holds true for computer-games too. Escape from Monkey Island is an exception to this. It is in my opinion the best of the four games, and then I think the three predecessors to this one were great too.

You will like this game the most if you have played the previous three, since there are a lot of flashbacks, and characters from the old games in this one, so you will miss out on a lot of the jokes and story if you haven't played them.

But if you did play the three other Monkey Island games, and loved them as I did, you MUST play this one. It is truly great, and everything is perfect. It's true they moved to 3D this time, but it wasn't at all disturbing as I thought it would be. The graphics is great, the story is even better, and the humor is fantastic! It's a must-play!

The monkeys are listening...
