About Return to Monkey Island

About this game

Return To Monkey Island and fill the pirate boots of Guybrush Threepwood in his final adventure.

Return to Melee Island

Not only will your point-and-click adventuring be done by Guybrush Threepwood, but you’ll also see Elaine Marley, the dread pirate LeChuck, and return to where it started on Melee Island. With the laws of the Tri-Island area changing due to Governor Marley leaving her position, Captain Madison and their cohorts are in charge…

Fine Leather Jackets

With a return to the series for series creator Ron Gilbert, he was joined by co-writer Dave Grossman, art director Rex Crowle and composers Peter McConnell, Michael Land, and Clint Bajakian to bring you something similar but different from what has come before.

You Fight Like A Cow

With wacky hijinks assured, clever puzzles, and new locations such as Terror Island and Brrr Muda, you will want to be on the lookout for three-headed monkeys and talking skulls. Who knows, maybe some wooden nickels and a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle, too? In any case, you should order up a mug of grog and prepare to set sail right away!

I'm just about old enough to have played Monkey Island (and other point and click games) the first time around. Though, because I was quite young at the time, the difficulty of the puzzles was often beyond me. Many, many years later, and finding myself somewhat disenchanted with the games industry of the present day, I was excited to get into this game and see what it had to offer. Disappointingly, though, what it has to offer is mostly nostalgia. On the plus side, the game runs exceptionally well and is basically jank-free, which was not something I remember being the case back in the day. But on the down side, the game adds basically nothing to the successful format, so many years after the genre peaked. Of course, its not completely fair to expect every game released to be pushing boundaries and evolving the nature of gameplay, but when you're using a gameplay loop from basically 30 years ago and adding nothing new to it, you perhaps disappoint some (but not all) of your audience. Personally, I found the tone and gameplay too childish and simplistic, considering how old I am now. And just like the original games, so of the solutions to puzzles just feel arbitrary; solving them can be attritional instead of logical. Overall, I'm sure players of the original games will get something out of this one, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

Great addition to the Monkey Island franchise

I really liked it. The art style is beautiful in game and I was one of those people who were wondering why they couldnt return to Monkey Island 3 style graphics. The pacing is really good, mega monkey mode is back, it does service to all previous games and gives you those 90s Lucas Arts feels. I can't stop telling people about this game.

Sequel to a childhood masterpiece but now with new art style which actually starts to grow on you. This is more than a game, the music and the visuals are so pleasing to the eye you could just load the game and get lost in that world and the actual gameplay is just an extra bonus.

Great game, that really puts us back in the original search for the secret of monkey island and revisit those known places The art choice is quite different from the original, it's certainly not as good looking as Curse of monkey island, but it's decent and goesn't get in the way anyway
