Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

 

Dead men tell no tales, but that hasn't stopped a great adventure game from coming back from the...

Funniest comedy adventure in ages ; Solid writing ; Excellent puzzle design

Some tedious jungle exploration ; No new standout characters ; Will have to wait for the next chapter

The only real disappointment, ignoring some tedious jungle exploration, is that as good as the script is, the new cast has yet to offer any real breakout characters like Stan or Murray. They’re not bad, it’s just that aside from the villain, and a...

This humorous and enjoyable adventure is seaworthy, despite some visual choppiness.

Quirky sense of humor ; Puzzles often require clever solutions ; A few memorable characters

Frame rate is sluggish ; Some environmental art oddities

Tales of Monkey Island Episode 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal Wii Review

 

Guybrush Threepwood has to be one of the most unfortunate names for a game character lead. If the Mighty Pirate happened to be a real person, his name would probably result in many taunts and name calling, although as a games character, Threepwood is...

Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal isn't a very long game (3-4 hours), although the continuation of the story in the remaining episodes is sure to make it feel more like an ongoing series (and better value for money), when compared...

Tales Of Monkey Island Episode 1: Launch Of The Screaming Narwhal

 

The Monkey Island series has reached legendary status over the years, despite the fact that many fans were not quite as pleased with the game's fourth release. However, since LucasArts appeared to have ditched the name completely, gamers were in...

Monkey Island is indeed back with a bang and Telltale once again shows why it is currently one of the best in the business for churning out high quality adventure episodes on a regular basis. This first episode comes with jokes a-plenty, smart puzzles...
