The Age of Lucasarts Adventures, 10 July 2005
Without a doubt one of the best ever adventure games created along with Grim Fandango. Curse of Monkey Island was the first adventure game I ever played and it got me hooked straight away. It was so good that it made me expand my library to include almost all of Lucasarts adventure titles. It definitely has the best interface out of all Lucasarts games with the classic Point&Click being utilised. Unfortunately due to the fact that Lucasarts has chosen to move away from adventures and focus on the overworked Star Wars franchise, it won't be long before these games can no longer be purchased. I strongly recommend to buy this game along with the other Lucasarts adventure games before it's too late. My top 5 list includes:
Curse Of Monkey Island
Sam & Max: Hit The Road
Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge
Also check out the new 'Psychonauts' game which came form the mind of Tim Schaefer, the genius behind Grim Fandango and Full Throttle. Though it aint exactly adventure, it is still an amazing and original game, compared to other titles in todays gaming world.
