Adventure Gaming's Come-Back,
By A Customer
This review is from: Escape from Monkey Island (PC) (Video Game)
What happened to the Adventure game? It seemed to be a dying genre, with fewer and fewer titles being released.
Escape From Monkey Island is the return of Lucas Arts' quality and hilarious contribution to the adventure game. Hardcore fans of the original will be disencouraged by the concept of it now being in 3-D, but have no fear. EFMI has been designed incredibly, and has none of the flaws that Grim Fandango had.
EFMI continues from the Curse of Monkey Island, except that this time Guybrush has finally married Elaine. Returning from the honeymoon they find their home in the process of demolition and Elaine declared as dead. The plot thickens with an Ozzy land developer buying everyhouse in sight and a suspiciously familiar villain named Charles L. Charles (smells like a corpse too)
Add hilarious, well acted and well timed dialouge, the rest of the excellent story line and you have a work of art.
