A great series reborn

Ehras | May 18, 2013 | Review of Tales of Monkey Island

Graphically this game is pretty great to watch, its cartoony style is pretty great for that kind of game : funny yet serous and is really good for children.

Gameplay wise, this game is quite good, its chapters progression offers a great rhythm throughout the adventure and brings diversity so its never boring. About the enigmas, they aren't painful like some in other games (easy puzzles next to another easy puzzle then something which makes no sense). They may be easy but they are still logical and some can be pretty mind boggling, even for a young adult.

If you are a beginner/novice at these types of game it can take about 17 hours of time to complete the game, about 3 less if you are medium to experienced in point and click.

In a nutshell, this game looks good (some can still be horrified by the cartoon graphics), has pretty great game conception and rhythm, lasts long enough not to finish it in an evening, and has a pretty nice scenario (it is monkey island, what did you expect ?). I'd recommend buying it if you like points and click and the series, even if you are new to this type of game, it is funny and a really well spent money for a nice trip to monkey island !
