  • Episode 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal - The saga begins with a heated battle involving the brave but often bumbling Mighty Pirate™ Guybrush, his beloved wife Elaine, and their nemesis, the demon pirate LeChuck. When the showdown goes up in flames, Guybrush finds himself marooned on a strange island with winds that always blow inward. How will our hero manage to escape this meteorological anomaly? What has become of LeChuck and Elaine? And what’s the story with the infectious voodoo pox that’s spreading across the Caribbean, causing Guybrush and other pirates to act like unruly hooligans?
  • Episode 2: The Siege of Spinner Cay - Guybrush's adventures continue on the high seas as pox-plagued pirates lay siege to the innocent Mer-People. In between defending the Mer-People and dodging the persistent pirate hunter hot on his trail, Guybrush manages to catch up to his beloved wife and despised arch-nemesis -- but their reunion is short-lived. Now Guybrush must focus on eradicating the Pox of LeChuck before more harm can be done.
  • Episode 3: Lair of the Leviathan - In the third Tales of Monkey Island chapter, Guybrush gets in deep (literally!) as his quest for the voodoo exfoliating La Esponja Grande takes a scenic twist -- through the guts of a giant manatee! Trapped in the belly of the beast, our hero encounters a surprising band of castaways, including the long-lost (and obsessive-compulsive) explorer Coronado De Cava. Can the Mighty Pirate win the suspicious De Cava's trust? Will sexy pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay prove to be a ruthless enemy, or an unlikely ally? Will the group find La Esponja Grande in time to save Elaine from the rampant Pox of LeChuck? And will the world be crushed by the gnashing teeth of a certain demonic skull?
  • Episode 4: The Trial & Execution of Guybrush Threepwood - Guybrush returns to Flotsam Island, but forget about a hero's welcome. Handed over to De Singe by the backstabbing Morgan LeFlay, Guybrush is seized by an angry mob and put on trial! With a silk-tongued prosecutor in his face and a hangman's noose dangling over his neck, Guybrush must figure out how to defend himself against grave accusations. Meanwhile, the determined Marquis sets his sights on a new and far more attractive test subject. How on earth will the Mighty Pirate get out of this mess? Tales of Monkey Island tension continues to mount in "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood." Brace yourself for a shocking revelation that will rock the world of Monkey Island to its core.
  • Episode 5: Rise of the Pirate God - Our piratey heroes meet their ultimate match with the Rise of the Pirate God. Can the world of Monkey Island be saved? Find out as the Tales of Monkey Island saga comes to its thrilling conclusion.

With the Tales of Monkey Island, Monkey Island makes a fine return that Ron Gilbert is, I am sure, very proud to have been a part of. Tell Tale Games have managed to do what Lucasarts would love to have done with Monkey Island 4, they have brought back the mad collection of characters from previous games and added their own with such a perfect feel that it may have been the same people doing it.
The game looks beautiful even on the lowest settings and the controls take only a moment to get use to. Although the puzzles you come across should not stump anyone for too long; as all answers are found in the same section you are playing at the time. They do give your brain a workout and work well to intertwine the story around you as you go. As for the story line, it may not be as good as Monkey Island LeChucks Revenge, but it so gripping that I found myself rushing back to the game to continue with every chance.
My only gripe is that you cannot just play from one chapter to another, instead you need to exit the chapter you are playing and then start up the next chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it really nearly 20 years? 21 Dec 2011
By John Brooke VINE VOICE

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I worked out that it must be the best part of 20 years since the first part of the Monkey Island games came out, because I can remember where I was working when I wasted more of my employer's time than I should have done working my way through the game and being entertained by the sly humour. I bought all the subsequent games, though I have to admit that I gave up rather on the fourth one (I can't remember the particular variation on the theme of the name now) - mostly because they had gone to a game engine that allowed the characters to be moved in sort-of-three-dimensions but which was really rather tedious to use.

However, I'm glad to report that this game doesn't suffer from those problems. It maintains the humour, and - amazingly - the voice artists are, by and large, the same as they were in earlier games. Even Murray, the evil talking skull, makes an appearance in one of the chapters of the game. Controlling the motion of the characters is a bit tricky to start off with (the ship on which they are is pitching and rolling) but getting past that introductory section is relatively easy (as long as you remember from previous games what you need to dispose of the ghost pirate, leChuck).

If you enjoyed the previous versions of Monkey Island, you will almost certainly enjoy this game as well. I suspect that you need a reasonably high-powered machine to get decent smooth action and response times, though - I certainly noticed a difference when I used the high-performance graphic processor compared to using the standard processor (an option that can be chosen from the right-click menu when launching the game).

The "deluxe" version of this comes in a nice package filled with useless tat, but I'm not sure if you can buy a plain vanilla, no-frills version - might be worth having a look around (unless you're an aficionado of tat, of course).

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return 21 Jun 2012

I really don't have much to say except that this really is a great return to the Monkey Island series.

The humour is there, as are the fiendish yet not impossible puzzles. All topped off with some wonderful characters old and new.
The only thing that brings it down is its length. In fairness, even broken up into episodes the overall length of the game is quite short. Shame really.
