Product description

Product Description

Escape from Monkey Island continues in the hilarious tradition of its critically hailed and award-winning predecessors, The Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge and The Curse of Monkey Island. Developed by the team who created LucasArts' irreverent classic Sam and Max Hit the Road, Escape features an original cinematic story full of drama, intrigue and of course, side-splitting humour. The game is highlighted by hundreds of challenging puzzles, set amid dozens of rich and brilliantly rendered backgrounds.

Guybrush Threepwood, Elaine Marley-Threepwood, Stan of Stan's Previously Owned Vessels, and the other bizarre characters from the beloved, anachronistic Monkey series come back to PC shores.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Monkey Island tales jumped onto our screens a long time ago and charmed us with intriguing storylines and chirpy dialogue. Now after a wait that seems like an eternity, Guybrush Threepwood and his trusty band of friends are back in the fourth instalment, Escape from Monkey Island.

Carrying on where Curse of Monkey Island left off, Escape from Monkey Island starts with Guybrush and his now-wife Elaine Marley-Threepwood, The Governor of the Tri-islands, returning back to the peaceful island of Mêlée, only to find that not all is what it seems, and while they have been battling the high seas, the evil villain Charles L. Charles has plotted to take over the islands.

All sounds hectic stuff, and you would be right in thinking so, but Escape from Monkey Island is not about being hectic, so sit back, take a sip of that tea you've got next to the computer and let's take it easy.

For those not aware of the series, Monkey Island is your average point-and-click game: search around, ask some questions, pick up some stuff, ask some more questions and so on and so on, but where Escape from Monkey Island differs is in the execution.

With its superb 3-D graphics--the others didn't have 3-D graphics--that lusciously depict the Tri-island area, the graphics are the first thing that will catch you eye. Couple this with a witty, clever and at times wonderful script and you've got a game that will have you chuckling out loud as Guybrush spins puns, jokes and insults aplenty.

If you are a fan of the point-and-click genre, or the Monkey Island series for that matter, then this is definitely going to be your cup of tea with intriguing challenges and humour you have come to appreciate from a game like this.

If, however, like a lot of people, you are wary of point-and-click games, this is the perfect starting point, with the game slowly easing you into the wonderful world that is Monkey Island. --Stuart Miles
