The legendary series returns from Davy Jones’ locker and onto your screen with lush 3D environments, rip-roaring humour, and Guybrush Threepwood himself!
While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat pirate hunter and a creepy French physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem…
Who can Guybrush trust? Where can he turn? Everything you think you know will be challenged as Tales of Monkey Island builds to its unexpected finale!

I've played all the monkey island games, and i must admit that at the debut of Tales of Monkey Island, I was a bit worried that it wouldn't manage to rise at fans expectations. Well after finishing the series I can honestly say that it does justice to the Monkey Island franchise. The game is composed of five episodes that when put head to head, offer a complete Monkey Island experience.read more If you played any of the older titles and enjoyed them, be assured that you will enjoy this one as well. The puzzles are actually pretty good , with a perfect balance of difficulty so that you must think about what you're doing (and not just trying to randomly combine all items in your inventory) yet not as difficult to get stuck for hours and hours. The voice acting is great, especially Guybrush who is voiced by the original actor. The graphics and design are also very well done, and the music is absolutely wonderful, with recurring yet modified tracks from older titles and of course, new ones as well. If you are a fan of adventure games this is a must have ! I strongly suggest purchasing this title! I know i am !

Just a quick review: This remake did an excellent job overall of capturing the fun, humor and puzzle solving of the rest of the series. The new characters in the game are enjoyable and one of them is so well done that I was blown away by how much I actually felt bad for her in her situation.
This game is definitely worth the small asking price if you enjoyed the Monkey Island series even just a little bit.

I played this on Steam and I really enjoyed it, totally worth getting now that it's on sale. I enjoyed the humor and the puzzle solving. It did get me stumped at times, but that's what adventure games are suppose to do. If you are a previous Monkey Island fan this is worth getting and if you are not then I still recommend getting it.
