Being curious enough, though, I decided to buy it and was not disappointed. Even though the Curse of Monkey Island remains my favourite for the fantabulous drawings, this new one is as exciting as the previous ones (much more exciting than MI4, actually, which I didn't like that much). Monkey humor is definitely back, and, resolving the puzzles, I got back to that same feeling I had when I was younger. It's also pretty good concerning the amount of stuff to do (I was afraid this episodes thing would lead to making you get two items to put them together and that's it, chapter is over) : you need to think it over, you need a little luck too, maybe, you need to have the impression of being stuck before finding a solution, and that's why you enjoy finding it after all. I'm waiting for the next chapters, of course, but the first one was a really good experience. If you liked Monkey Island, I see no reason why you shouldn't enjoy this one.
Now, technically, it probably comes from my computer but the game can be very slow sometimes, so I suppose you need a good configuration to support it(probably better than mine, but my PC is a tad old, that's probably why). Plus, 3D is not the best choice in my opinion (Look at the effects it has on poor Elaine), yet, for the ones who compare it with MI4, try to play MI4 again and then go back to Tales of, I swear you'll see a huge difference.). So, 3D is what it is, anyway.
Ok, so, I guess that's it for the review. Really, up to now, it's a great game. If what you're looking for is perfect pictures, beautiful landscapes and realisme, don't buy it. But if you're looking for good humor and excellent puzzles, please don't hesitate one more second.
I feel the game has only gotten better and better with each incarnation--the three games for PC in the 1990s, and now the Tales of Monkey Island in the 2000s. The jokes are as witty or wittier, the puzzles are just as puzzling or more, and the characters are great. The music is not quite as good. Threepwood's voice is still spot-on by the voice actor Dominic Armato!
There is a kiss scene between Guybrush and Elaine in Chapter 2 that is really ... exciting! Also in chapter 2, the vacalians are charming merfolk from Atlantis. Their backstory is actually philosophically interesting, that they chose to go back into the sea rather than evolve on land with other humans. Very interesting! They are also done by voice actors, and drawn in such a way that you can never figure out their gender. How appropriate in this new millennium!
In the end, ToMI was very entertaining game to play!
I picked these up while waiting for Episode 3 of The Walking Dead (also by Telltale) and I really do have to say that Telltale has a knack for making adventure games feel current and fun.

Love Tales of Monkey Island. Love all the games Telltale product.Published on July 4, 2014 by Karolyn Yoakum
This shouldn't be sold in 5 parts. It is too short to pay for independently. I was not happy with it once I found this out.Published on December 21, 2012 by Kindle Customer
You probably already know what this game is, but if not it's in short a puzzle game. There's no real "combat", mostly just following "clues" and putting objects together to try to... Read morePublished on November 14, 2011 by Veil_Lord
