Tales Of Monkey Island was released to critical acclaim last year on PC, followed by ports on both Wii and PS3. I immediately noticed that there was a surprising lack of concrete detail about the quality of the console ports available online. Therefore, when I finally finished the game recently on all three platforms, I decided to share my thoughts with AMO’s readers. This review will be less a review of the game itself (which comprises five chapters, each of which is fantastic) and instead offer a write-up on the different versions available and their various strengths/weaknesses.

Loading up episode 4 this all played on my mind of course, but something else was eating at me from inside that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Something I couldn’t shake. It may have been the fact Winslow was tied up back on the Narwhal, not to be joining us on our latest adventure. It may have been the new night-time setting, making the once quite appealing, sunny shores of Flotsam almost remind me of the darkest moments of Monkey Island 2, with splendid lighting effects washing over our bound, silent hero. It may even have been Morgan herself, who we knew all along was an enemy, but didn’t want to quite believe would screw us over so nonchalantly. Continue reading
