An increase in graphics, and now with spoken voice...

Gameplay just not long enough

"Lost at sea for days now and I have no crew or navigational instruments. No provisions except a half eaten corndog, and unless I find water soon, I'm surely done for. Only the hope of finding my love, Elaine, keeps me going. And my quest for the "fabulous" treasure called Big Whoop has left me...

good cartoony graphics, music, sfx

no 3d accelaration ;-)

This is the best graphical adventure game that I have played. It is now at a budget price, along with its predecessors - The Secret of Monkey Island and Lechuck's Revenge. The main character is a guy called Guybrush Threepwood who manages to turn his girlfriend into a golden statue by unleashing...

“My name is Guybrush.”

published 24/07/2001

Brilliant graphics. Smooth gameplay.

None.

First Impressions - The reason I went out and bought this game was simply on the strength of the first two installments which I had for my Amiga. They were both absolutely brilliant and gave me lots and lots of hours of pleasure. To say that this game was better was a massive understatement. As...

Great cartoon-like graphics, good sound, GREAT FUN...

Monkey Island 3 (“The Curse of Monkey Island”) has been around for a while now but you might be able to get hold of it in a compilation called "The Monkey Island Bounty Pack" which contains the first 3 Monkey Island games. If you haven't seen them before and you like adventure games don't have...

Avast ye scurvy dogs! Swap the decks, shiver me timbers, walk the plank and bone the cabin boy because after a five year gap Guybrush Threepwood pirate wannabee extraordinaire is back for another swashbuckling adventure. Prepare to laugh your butt off. It had been 5 long years before The Monkey...

“LeChuck returns.”

published 10/04/2002

Well animated graphics.

Puzzle solutions can be a bit obscure

This is the third game in the Monkey Island series and goes along much the same lines as the other two. The plot is a continuation from the previous games, but makes perfect sense on its own. In the Curse of Monkey Island Guybrush Threepwood is the unlikely hero who is trying to save fiancee from...

N.B. The ratings i've given this game, e.g. graphics, originality, etc. above are in relation to the games that were available when Monkey Island first hit the shops. So, although I've rated it as 'graphics = ok' by todays standard they really are poor. I know this game is really, really old. And...

“The series gets better...”

published 09/02/2001

Good Music, Voices, Graphics, and Very Funny

The Ending

This game must have been tough to make. The Secret of Monkey Island was a success. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge took that winning formula and improved it. Could LucasArts ever produce something worthy of its prequels? Well they did. And they did it well. At the start, we find Guybrush...

Comedy, Great Cut Scenes

Story is Short

Here's a quick summery of what the game offers. Graphics. I personally love the graphics of this game and the game series has taken a huge leap from monkey island 2: LeChucks revenge. With a resolution of 640 x 480 the graphics are not up todays standard but if you take into consideration the...

“Monkey Island Trilogy”

published 20/08/2000

The Curse Of Monkey Island is the 3rd and Final Installation in the Monkey Island Trilogy. I bought this game because I found the rest of them so good and I enjoy adventure games. The game for me was very easy as I am an expert at adventure games. If you like adventure games try the monkey island...

Graphics are awsome and the story just gets better

NONE NONE NONE

I love Monkey Island can't get enough. This last of three is like the icing on the cake. Guybrush is busy trying to find Elaine and when he does he turns her into gold. She gets stolen and he is once again on a quest to do the righ thing. If you like to laugh while you play and find some...

Many puzzles, good graphics and great humor.

None.

History The first Monkey Island, The Secret of Monkey Island, was released in 1990, and the sequel, Monkey Island 2, LeChuck's Revenge, was released in 1991. The titles were well received. It has taken Lucas Arts six years to come up with the third game in the trilogy. When pressed the co...
