5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch sequel in "Escape From Monkey Island" August 8, 2002
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Jewel Case
"Escape from Monkey Island" is the fourth game in the "Monkey Island" series, which follow the adventures of wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood and the love of his life, Governor Elaine Marley, as they battle against the evil undead pirate Chuck LeChuck (who just won't stay dead after three games). In "Escape from Monkey Island" Guybrush returns from his honeymoon with Elaine to find out that they have been declared dead. Now he must investigate a slimy Australian developer who is buying up all of the Tri-Island area and "reforming" the pirates into docile citizens. In the meantime Elaine is running for governor against Charles L. Charles, a suspiciously familiar face. Once again Guybrush gets to rescue the damsel in distress, fight monkeys in Monkey Kombat (a hilarious Mortal Kombat spoof you have to see to believe), and test his wit at Insult Arm Wrestling, as well as downing Groggoccinos from Starbuccaneers and visiting his own theme restaurant Planet Threepwood (sound familiar?), all while trying to find a powerful Voodoo charm, the Ultimate Insult, before the bad guys do.
"EFMI" is the first game to feature 3D characters, and all of the familiar faces (Guybrush, Elaine, Carla, Otis, Herman) translate well to their new medium. The game's engine is basically an upgraded Grim Fandango GRIME system, but the graphics are gorgeous (and eccentric: the familiar swirly clouds, watercolour stars, nifty maps and gaudy costumes look great). The music is a mysterious blend of Caribbean and sweeping scores worthy of John Williams (steel drums, rowdy pirate music, Muzak in Starbuccaneers and Jambalaya Island (the same theme changes to a minor key once you visit Nuttin Atoll, nice touch) string-driven themes).

OK, Monkey Island series have got to be one of the best adventure games ever(too bad that no one makes good adventure games anymore). Well, the fourth installment of the series seems to me like bunch of "wanna be" Monkey island stuff put together. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game. I LOVE the voice acting and music in the game; and I still like the characters (especially Murray!!). But the more I played the game, the more I felt as if makers of this game were trying way too hard to be funny to live up to what fans of MI have come to expect.
This game also has lots of bugs. In one part, I could not get out of a conversation because the game won't let me. I got stuck there until I found out from LucasArts website that there's nothing I can do about it. I ended up having to go back to where I had saved earlier and went over the same thing again (this is why you should save your game often, unfortunately).
You have to move Guybrush just right in the right position to get the right options appear on the bottom of the screen - this makes it very easy to miss important items. Then there's the stupid way of having to choose it. It is very annoying. Controls (which is very similar to Grim Fandango - if you haven't played GF, it is a must have game) are clumsy and confusing, but it is functional once you get used to it. It works for Grim Fandango, but it doesn't work for this game. I want the classic "point and click" back! I also hate having to continue to sit and watch guybrush run from point A to point B - I wish there was a better way than having to hold down directional buttom while I see the same scenery for the 20th time.
The puzzles are not bad. I actually enjoyed it until towards the end where you have to do some kind of baboon fight or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Piratey monkey fun May 31, 2002
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Jewel Case
This is an extremely funny comedy based game. The jokes are tasteful and funny and something that anybody could relate to. Some of the comedy is in the characters themselves like Britney, the bank accountant whose dream is to become a singer with her own backup dancers. This game is something only Lucas Arts could have produced. There are many jokes about the game and life situations and the game is actually very easy to play, though some of the puzzles are extremely hard, there being no clues to some of the puzzles. The sound is great (familiar music if you have played previous Monkey Islands) and the graphics arent something I could complain about though I really loved Curse of Monkey island's cartoon graphics (I HIGHLY reccomend that you play at least that if you want some backup story). Though it is 4th in the series, the gameplay is still refreshing. The only thing I could complain about is the shortness of this game (takes less than 24 hours to beat) and the control. This game is really fun and anybody who has played it loves it (though there are some who are quick to judge by the graphics). Chances are if you looked at this game, you are familiar with the previous classics. Even if you have not played the previous games, there is a prequel in the beginning that is enough to give you sufficient backup info to play this game. However if you really want to understand some of the jokes you will proboably need to play Monkey Island 1, 2 (not really too good compared to 1) and 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars a GREAT game! .. but hard to sell :( April 19, 2005
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Jewel Case
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely loved this game!

The characters, the music, the art, the dialog .. it's all just done so amazingly well.

The worst part about it for me was when it ended .. I just wanted it to keep going.

I really, really hope they make another one.

Unfortunately a game like this is not easy to sell to the general gaming public. It's hard to advertise to people what is so great about it and because of that I would imagine that it's difficult to sell many copies.

I can only guess about the outrageous number of hours and the extreme amount of effort that must have gone into making this game.

I don't know how many copies have sold, but I don't think it's nearly enough to make up for the amount of work that went into it.

If you can manage to do so, I recommend playing all the other monkey island games first (in order) to really immerse yourself in the Monkey Island world.

Monkey Island 1 and 2 are pretty old so don't expect to be impressed with graphics or sound but they're both still great fun.

Monkey Island 3 (The Curse of Monkey Island) is a more recent release that is comparable to this game in quality .. even without the 3D graphics .. it too is a great game!
