Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 2: Siege of Spinner Cay

 

Guybrush hunts for meaning among the mermaids

Strong puzzles ; Funny writing ; Fantastic new villain

Fantasy elements don't mesh well ; LeChuck is pathetic ; Won't be funny for everyone

Individual plot quibbles aside, it is good to see Telltale actively putting their own stamp on the franchise, especially when it comes to the character relationships. Guybrush in particular is increasingly more reminiscent of the arrogant, comically...

Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2 - The Siege of Spinner Cay

 

Episode two has historically been a challenge for Telltale—and understandably so, as the novelty and seemingly limitless time allowed to polish and perfect the initial game in a given "season" gives way to the crushing pressure of having to turn around...

Great voice acting helps amplify the strong dialogue writing; beautiful animation and character design; begins very strongly and ends even stronger

Feels significantly briefer than the first episode; generic three-part fetch quest softens the middle section; puzzles feel a tad artificial at times

The Siege of Spinner Cay is very good, but doesn't quite make the series great. I continue to enjoy every minute with the TMI episodes, but know that there is stronger comic momentum that can be attained.
