I LOVED THIS GAME

The story line was funny, very funny and intelligent. It cute as heck and adorable for children but "tongue in cheek" at times, and that keeps adults entertained. I was fully grown when I played this game and this one coupled with Blazing Dragons were the funniest most entertaining games I ever played; Just in case you missed it, I still love this game! :D

This game never gets old for me. It's very creative, clever, AND hilarious. You have to be clever enough yourself to beat it. But overall I give it a 9/10.

Back in the day

Back in the day this game was probably a great find. Seems like a natural progression, from pc to ps2, and it works relatively well. However, I kinda thought it was a bit boring and not terribly funny. Some of the jokes were just silly and some of the puzzles made no sense at all (wood chips in a perfume bottle?). The point and click concept works extremely well online due to the non existant load times for cut scenes and action. The game is deadly slow and keeps the playtime going for hours just going from one screen to the next. I know, I know everyone loves the Monkey Island games for pc, but this is not pc and its just not as fun on this platform, probably why Phantasmagoria, the Seventh Guest, Full Throttle or Sam and Max have yet to hit any console. Anyone remember the horror that was Myst for PS2? Talk a bout a nightmare. This game is better, just be prepared to sit for hours listening to bad one liners and watching choppy animation.
