not that thrilled

It was like a interactive saturday morning cartoon. Cheap looking graphics and corny jokes and slapstick lined comedy. It was a very disappointing game that only took me 7 hours to complete.

Huge disappointment!

I normally love games of this genre, games such as Shadowgate, Deja Vu, King's Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry. I never played the previous Escape from Monkey Island titles, but I've always heard good things about the series. Therefore, I was excited to pick of this forth installment.

However, I was extremely disappointed in this title. It was extremely boring, not funny (the main selling point of the game is that it supposed to be funny), and most of the puzzles were random and did not make any sense. The only slightly fun part of the game was playing Monkey Kombat.

I'd only recommend this game for huge fans of the Escape from Monkey Island series. Even then, I'd only recommend renting it, because I was able to beat the game in three hours. If you are not a huge fan of the previous games, stay far away from this one.

Fun but has you by the nose

Ok, the idea of the game is fun. The characters are fun. The humor is funny and irreverent. So why down I like this game???

Ok, the game requires you to figure out what the game designers want you to do in each situation. Now remember, it is not your choices that count. You have to figure out what choices that the game makes to pick, you have to do them in a certain order and at a certain time.

If you like being led around by the nose like a cow during a video game, then ok. If you want to do any free thinking, then this game is really not for you.

Thanks for reading and good luck.
