Curse of the Monkey island is one of the Monkey Island games I heard most about. Everyone told me “go play Curse of the Monkey Island” and so I did.
First of all, let me mention that I’m an absolute lover of every pxl based game and I just adore the old Monkey Island that basically prove me all over again that pxl graphics can be awesome as well. On the other hand, when I started playing Curse of the Monkey Island, I was not so happy about the graphics that I’m about to see. Of course, I soon forgot about this issue because Monkey Island is one amazing game, people!
The point where I fell in love with the game was basically when we met Murray. I would seriously consider playing a game with Murray as a main character than than Guybrush :P. It is the first time I fell in love with a skull, and I’m still not sure what I think about that xD.
Different from the other games, this one has a voice-over and it’s a little hard to get used to when you’re playing the games one after another, but as I said before, all those are minor issues that really don’t matter when you get into the game. You start laughing like hell at conversations, enjoy the plotline and try to troll everything possible.
I actually love how you can just go and annoy every single character in the game. Wish that quality trolling of characters will be featured more in future games. You know, we’re pirates after all – let’s be evil to people and stuff.
Anyway, Monkey Island series is generally one epic experience. It’s definitely something I’d put in my ‘favorite adventure games’ list (if I had one, that is). It’s really funny, it has epic deus ex machina elements that never manage to fail you (in fact, they manage to crack you as you never expect them to happen XD) and the game is always refreshing and fun to play.
Yeah, so if you didn’t get it so far, it’s highly recommended :P. I command you to play the Monkey Island games.
