About The Curse of Monkey Island

About this game

I've sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I've never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I'm sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie's treasures. And if that's not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die!
Excerpted from ""The Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood: The Monkey Island Years""

- Third in the legendary Monkey Island series of graphic adventures
- Film quality animation, voice, sound and music--the undead come to life before your very eyes!
- Incredible high-resolution (640 x 480) graphics!
- A barrel of gameplay--estimated 30-plus hours!
- Two difficulty settings: regular and Mega-Monkey (now with more puzzley goodness)!
- New and improved insults suitable for swordfights and other fun occasions!

"If this isn't destined to be a classic, I'll swallow a cutlass. [Feb 1998, p.95]"

Adventure Gamers

70 / 100
"However good the game is, it must be said that it is far too short, and the ending is a little rushed. Two days of gameplay is simply not enough for a modern adventure game."

A fantastic and hilarious game that still holds up to this day. The art style remains a joy. The music is wonderful and atmospheric and the voice acting is great. There are so many memorable and hilarious moments in this game. It still remains my favourite point and click and I've revisited it more times than I might care to admit and still find little extra bits of dialogue or easter eggs I missed. A pirate I was meant to be...

OK port of great game

Great game, but it is kind of disappointing that this is such a bar bones port. Graphics show their age and the menu is a pain to deal with. Game is still good, but could be better
