Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

 

The adventurer with the coolest name returns. www.jensrushing.com I literally jumped for joy when this game was announced. If you owned a PC in the early 90s, you probably played...

Challenging but logical puzzles ; Brilliantine humor ; Fantastic script ; Beautiful art ; It’s Monkey Island, as good as Monkey Island has ever been

An annoying maze section ; A whole month until the next one ; Needlessly altered control scheme

Tales of Monkey Island

 

Once clear of its port of origin, this clever, humorous tale unfurls its sails and becomes a thoroughly entertaining swashbuckling adventure.

Quirky sense of humor ; Engaging, superbly voiced characters ; Charming cartoon aesthetic ; Story full of fun twists and turns ; Some clever puzzles

Occasional presentation hitches ; Some slow parts ; Puzzles are generally easy

It's pronounced Espon-ha, not Espon-ja

The return of insult sword fighting – Monkey Island fans rejoice

The final timed-puzzle can be frustrating, having to repeat things over again and again if you don't do an action in the timeframe allowed

The game is filled with in-jokes (Winslow and his map obsession, the name of the unnamed voodoo lady), references to pop-culture (including a “mostly dead” Princess Bride reference - classic), and even has the Monkey Island favorite – Insult Sword...

Tales of Monkey Island Chapter Four: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood

 

Telltale Games have created what they have deemed “an epic adventure in five parts.” Seeing as they've done this type of presentation before, it's no question that they know how to deliver episodic content. This time they have done so with the famed...

This is a worthy addition to the Tales of Monkey Island series. It's one that all adventure fans should own and everyone else should at least try.

Tales of Monkey Island: Lair of the Leviathan (Episode 3)

 

Fall is in full swing, and as all gamers know, the barrage of games is just beginning to hit us. Pretty soon we'll all be reveling in the goliath IPs set for release in just a few short weeks and months, inevitably losing days to such epics as Modern...

Lair of the Leviathan is extremely short and not quite up to par in terms of difficulty, but its a generally solid continuation to the episodic series.
