Is the new Monkey Island game worth playing?

For all you Monkey Island lovers out there, our favorite pirate Guybrush Threepwood is back and is now in 3D. Telltale Games just released a reincarnation of the hit adventure, RPG game that we’ve grown to love during the 90’s.


Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is the first of the five episodes of Monkey Island games that we’ll have. The other 4 episodes will be released one by one in the next 4 months.

Basically, there’s only 2 things that was changed in the game. 3D graphics have replaced the cute pixel art that was adorably cute in its own way. The second thing is that the navigation controls have been changed in a way that you have to click and drag Guybrush to move him. I don’t know if that’s a bad thing or not.

The good thing is the nice sound, the just-right-complexity puzzles and most of all, the humor is still there. So if you’re a fan of Monkey Island, be sure to collect and play all 5 episodes. I’m feeling nostalgic right now.

For a review of the first episode, here’s one from
