Actually sounds quite an interesting game, but I doubt I'd have the patience for it. The 'requirements' made me laugh.. better check your all capable of running it before buying.. (_;)

Minimum: Windows 2000/XP, Pentium 166 MMX , 32 MB RAM, Mouse and Keyboard, 640x480 SVGA high colour (16bit) video card with 2 MB RAM, Windows compatible sound device, 300 MB free hard drive space

Recommended: Pentium II, 266 mhz, 64 MB RAM , 3d accelarator card ( Direct 3d compatible ) with 4 MB RAM, 1GB free hard drive space

one of the best point and clicks ever made - almost (but just not quite) up there with monkey island 1 & 2 and grim fandango.

As a gamer of over 20 years and primarily still the biggest fan of point and click adventures I still can't fathom the fuss over the Monkey Island games, no matter which way I look at it. Broken Sword (1 and 2) blow them out of the water, as does King's Quest VI (even with a potential game breaking puzzle), as certainly does this one. Grew tired a long time ago repeatedly reading PC gaming magazines bizarrely imagining that every point and clicker was trying to replicate Monkey Island, and judging them against them without ever actually saying why they thought they weren't as good. "Good, but no Monkey Island". Damn.....and you attened university for 4 years to come up with that statement. (_;)

I think the Monkey Island games are good (wasnt a fan of the 2nd but the later ones I found entertaining) but also preferred Broken Sword. But I think personal taste comes into it as I prefer more realistic but quirky setting rather than the all out daftness of [most] Lucas Arts adventures (though I'd say my favorite is Sam and Max so bit of a contradiction there, I just feel Sam & Max delivers much better).

The Longest Journey series is great, cant wait for the new game(s) to come out on PS4 so I can finally play them!

It's a shame they haven't released this for Android

I grew up on Jet Set Willy, Horace goes Skiing, text adventures etc. from the zx spectrum, the nes and the Atari st - which is what I played monkey island on when it first came out when I was 12.

Whether or not you like a game is entirely subjective of course, and it also depends when you played it.

I remember when the SNES came out, and it was like owning your own arcade machine. Nowadays, not so much. Put down your Xbone controller and play Monkey Island and you probably won't stick it, unless you have the right kind of mind.

The storytelling in Monkey Island, the engagement with the characters, the humour, the puzzles, were all unique for its time and helped define/refine the genre in the same way that half-life did for the fps.

I remember watching the cut-scenes for LeChuck thinking it was like a movie.

Monkey Island was like a first kiss - totally unforgettable, but with much less embarrassment and no chipped teeth.
