A scurvy-inducing new chapter in the legendary Monkey Island adventure series unfolds in rollicking 3-D. Developed by the team who created LucasArts' irreverent classic "Sam & Max Hit The Road," Escape features an original cinematic story full of drama, intrigue, and, of course, side-splitting humor.
Hilarious, perfectly paced, and just the right amount of difficulty. Very few puzzles are total stumpers.
This is what an adventure game should be: easy to look at, great puzzles and sound, simple interaction, humour, solid writing and the power to transport the player somewhere else for some fun.
Some ill-chosen puzzles, a fatigued conclusion -- no matter, really. You'll be smiling too much to give it much notice. This is nothing less than perfectly perfected perfection. If you like monkeys, anyway.
While the glitches are definitely frustrating, and the polish is lacking at times, overall this is a welcome return to the eeps and oops of your childhood.
The biggest change Escape from Monkey Island has undergone is its change to 3D. Far from ruining the game, as many fans feared, this makes EMI the best-looking Monkey Island title yet.
The lack of mouse support is both shocking and somewhat unforgivable... (yet) EMI will provide hours of intelligent and silly gameplay.
EFMI brings nothing new to the table. It will not attract a new generation of gamers and was made for the hardcore adventure gamer who enjoyed the previous episodes.
