Brilliant game, but doesn't quite match up to CMI, Curse of Monkey Island. It's excellent in many ways and should be bought by all adventure gamers. The only draw-back is the so called 'ancient art' of Monkey Kombat. The only words that can truly describe this process are; Profoundly Irritating and an utter waste of time. If you have the patience to see it through to the end as I did, you'll feel all the better for beating it, and the ending is pretty good. Herman Toothrot comes out with a blinder of a plot twist though! A must buy!
