Acerca de este juego

Cuando despojó de forma explosiva al malvado pirata LeChuck de su maldición demoníaca, Guybrush Threepwood infectó sin querer a todo el Caribe con el vudú expelido por su archi-enemigo, lo que amenaza con convertir a todos los bucaneros en rebeldes monstruos piratas. Perseguido por una famosa y despiadada Caza-Piratas y un siniestro Médico Francés que está convencido de que la mano peligrosamente infectada de Guybrush guarda el secreto de la vida eterna, Threepwood navegará por los siete mares en su búsqueda de La Esponja Grande, una legendaria esponja marina con una capacidad para exfoliar vudú sin parangón. Pero Guybrush no tiene la menor idea de que su búsqueda forma parte de un plan mayor y mucho más siniestro, y es que el bien y el mal no siempre son lo que parecen ser...
¿En quién puede confiar Guybrush?. ¿Hacia donde se puede dirigir?. ¡Todo aquello que das por sentado se tambalea a medida que Tales of Monkey Island se dirige hacia un final totalmente inesperado!

Acerca del Capítulo Uno


La saga comienza con una acalorada batalla en la que se ven envueltos el valeroso pero a menudo torpe Poderoso Pirata™ Guybrush, su amada esposa Elaine, y su némesis, el pirata demonio LeChuck. Cuando el enfrentamiento alcanza el punto de ebullición, Guybrush se encontrará abandonado en una extraña isla con un insólito viento que siempre sopla hacia el interior. ¿Cómo logrará nuestro héroe escapar de esta anomalía meteorológica?. ¿Qué habrá sido de LeChuck y Elaine?. ¿Y qué hay de la epidemia vudú que se extiende por todo el Caribe, provocando que Guybrush y otros piratas se comporten como auténticos ultras?. Estas son sólo algunas de las muchas preguntas que se formulan en este primer capítulo de una de las experiencias más alocadas y entretenidas de este verano.

Acerca del Capítulo Dos


Las aventuras de Guybrush continúan en alta mar cuando los piratas contagiados causan estragos entre los inocentes marineros. Entre la defensa de los marineros y su constante huida de la terca Caza-Piratas cuyo aliento ya siente en la nuca, Guybrush logra dar alcance a su amada esposa y a su archienemigo — pero su reunión será breve. Ahora Guybrush debe volcar todos sus esfuerzos en erradicar la infección de LeChuck antes de que haga más daño. Y a medida que el Poderoso Pirata se aproxime a la cura, las aguas se volverán más turbulentas en este emocionante capítulo de la épica saga.

Acerca del Capítulo Tres


En el tercer capítulo de Tales of Monkey Island, Guybrush deberá profundizar aún más (¡literalmente!) cuando su búsqueda de La Esponja Grande exfoliadora de vudú da un giro escénico - ¡por las entrañas de un manatí gigante!
Atrapado en el vientre de la bestia, nuestro héroe se encuentra con una sorprendente banda de náufragos, incluyendo a un explorador perdido hace mucho tiempo, el obsesivo-compulsivo Coronado De Cava. ¿Podrá el Poderoso Pirata ganarse la confianza del receloso De Cava?. ¿Resultará ser la sexy caza-piratas Morgan LeFlay un despiadado enemigo, o un inesperado aliado?. ¿Podrá el grupo encontrar La Esponja Grande a tiempo de salvar a Elaine de la imparable plaga de LeChuck?. ¿Y terminará el mundo siendo aplastado por el diente chirriante de cierta calavera demoníaca?. ¡El húmedo y fascinante tercer episodio de Tales of Monkey Island, Lair of the Leviathan, dará respuesta a estas acuciantes preguntas - y formulará algunas más - a medida que la aventura de cinco meses se aproxima a su épica conclusión!

Acerca del Capítulo Cuatro


Guybrush regresa a Flotsam Island, pero ya puede olvidarse de una calurosa acogida. ¡Entregado a De Singe por la traicionera Morgan LeFlay, Guybrush es capturado por una multitud enfurecida y llevado a juicio!. Con un fiscal con lengua de plata ante su cara y una soga cerrándose alrededor de su cuello, Guybrush deberá encontrar la forma de defenderse de las graves acusaciones. Mientras tanto, el decidido Marquis le echa el ojo a un nuevo y mucho más atractivo sujeto de pruebas. ¿Cómo demonios podrá el Poderoso Pirata salir de este lío?. La tensión mensual de Tales of Monkey Island sigue creciendo en "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood". Agárrate fuerte a la silla porque se prepara una increíble revelación que sacudirá el mundo de Monkey Island hasta los cimientos.

Acerca del Capítulo Cinco


Nuestros héroes piratas llegarán al enfrentamiento definitivo en Rise of the Pirate God. ¿Podrá salvarse el mundo de Monkey Island?. Descúbrelo en el emocionante final de Tales of Monkey Island.

One of the best series I've played. I have been a long-time Monkey Island. The series are great and this one keeps close to its roots!
Guybrush is the dorky one we've always known! It is a must for Monkey Island lovers and a huge recommendation to those who are just getting into the series!

Mean Mr. Mustard's short Tales of Monkey Island review

1) Essential - buy it NOW
2) Recommended - buy it on sale
3) Avoid

Time to complete – 20 hours to finish all five chapters
Played multiplayer? N/A
Worth revisiting? No

Best part – A soild entry in the Monkey Island series and well realised in 3D. Contains the same writing style, humour and puzzles of past entries but not quite to the same high standard

Worst part – Gets a bit samey around the fourth chapter or so but worth persevering with to see the ending

This applies to the whole game, not just this chapter.

It's enjoyable and funny, like all the Monkey Island games are. Also is an old school style adventure game, so either be good at making bizzare leaps in logic, or be ready to play the game with a guide at the ready, if you're at all interested in experiencing this.

I really like those kind of games like the first 3 Chapters of Deponie (i havn't played the 4th yet).

Unfortunatelly I think the Telltale Games I played so far are not very good (Tales of Monkey Island, Hector).

I don't know if it's the "typical" humor but most of the "jokes" are not funny to me.

Additionally there are so many cases where you simply have to try out everything in every step over and over again because some tasks don't make any sense that it breaks down the playspeed entirely- more than even a point and click adventure should.

To make things worse I now had two failures in 4 chapterendings which is simply too much (ger edition). In the ending of Chapter 3 there was the whole time a sea cow swimming through the ocean and there were just the sound effects of what really took place. In Chapter 4 De Singe simple disappeared in the final fight while his turban and the syringe stood vissible but de Singe was not there anymore. I could not click on him neiter...
It's quite frustrating when youtube videos are the only chance to see the endings...

There isn't much too review here - if you liked the old Monkey Island games, this will scratch your itch. It's a comedic adventure game with puzzles that are not too hard, and features a slightly unusual control mechanism (WASD). It's also interesting to see the hints of what Tell Tale games would grow up to be in the long but well-directed cutscenes. It's reasonably entertaining and worth the cash these days, though to be honest i didn't really get into the story and was disappointed by the ending. A better modern adventure in the same vein is The Journey Down, in my opinion, but this is still worth a playthrough if you are an adventure fan.

CONCLUSION ~ 7/10
Monkey Island is back with well thought out and coherent story, trademark humor and quirky dialogs!
It is a nice continuation of the series with a major flop - quality of the end product from graphical and technical perspective is on a shameful level.

PROS
+Monkey Island humor
+fun and quirky dialogs
+all chapters well connected
+overall nice storyline with wacky ideas
+general Monkey Island atmosphere
+Murray


CONS
-graphics and technical side (even thought it gets better through chapters)
-models of characters
-mechanics of moving through field
-ending is unsatisfying and finished in a hurry

PERSONAL OPINION
*should have stayed 2D hand-drawn
*sometimes puzzles are predictable
*game should have evolved some more.

The general formula is still fun and tempting to play, but it would be interesting to see some new elements explored between characters and story. Deeper motives, reasons, background stories that could be intercalated into MI world, more cognitive or empathic approach to some problems that are just hinted in the game. This way it is just black and white- good and bad, love and hate. Obviously, the game creators didn't took into account that most of the fanbase playing this game is ranging from 20-40 (or more) years old.

This "game" is a SCAM. All the dialogue options that seem like they could alter the story are always the same one, no matter what you choose. So, for instance, someone who you are talking to mentions a pirate named Deep Throat. Your options go something like this:

"Deep Throat? What a stupid name for a pirate?"

"Deep Throat? Is my wife's mother visiting?"

"Deep Throat? Isn't the throat wider than it is deep?"

Whichever one you choose, the main character answers "Deep Throat?" and the NPC tells the only scripted line that is possible in that conversation. This is not an adventure game. Thos is hardly even a story, as the lack of context, apart from the seemingly imaginary answers that the main character gives out as options, make it a dull hand-holding technicolor 3D experience. DO NOT BUY

A fantastic few chapters in the continuing story of Guybrush Threepwood - Mighty Pirate TM. The chapters were each surprisingly long, taking my wife and I about 5hrs per chapter making 25hrs of gameplay time.

I originally played The Secret of Monkey Island 1 years ago as a child - before any voices were added (the game intalled from 3x 1.44mb disks I think), and The Secret of Monkey Island 2 a few years later - also on 1.44mb disks if I recall correctly. I never played number 3, and was there a number 4?? Either way, this has plenty of great tie-ins with the original games and was good for a few laughs. My wife had never played any of Monkey Island, but she picked up on the general idea soon enough and enjoyed the series and the ending.

Puzzles were very well thought out and often needed different perspectives and logic and plain old trial and error to figure out what the whacky item combinations were. Playing with the wife was great for the second opinions and to introduce her to the childhood that was Monkey Island!

Great value at $5, especially if you've played any of the old games of the series!

I LOVE the Monkey Island series. I started playing from Escape (bad start, yes). Then I tried out the 1st and 2nd games went they went on the iPad App Store. Never tried the 3rd one, but I heard some good stuff.

So after finishing Tales of Monkey Island, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it. The characters are still as funny as they were in the previous games, and the story, while a bit weird and confusing, was still enjoyable. The humour was still excellent, even thought they did get new writers for this one. Many references and small homages to pop-culture, and even the older Monkey Island games too.

And to all of you Mac users, don't worry, the game works fine. In the amount of time I played the game, I haven't encountered any bugs or glitches.

It's a shame they won't be making a sixth game, since all the characters only agreed to a five-game deal with LucasArts (Escape From Monkey Island joke, look it up). But to me, this was a pretty fitting end to Guybrush's piratey adventures. I'd say that this game is absolutely worth it's full price.
Before I end this review, let me just say this one sentence...
Oh, how appropriate, you fight like a cow.

I really love this game. This type of game is my bread and butter and I think it has just the right blend of difficulty without making it so hard you stop playing. Not to mention the story is fun and really adds to the experience. It isn't for everyone, but if you like puzzle solving and a good adventure story then this is probably for you.

DO NOT BUY IF YOU PLAN TO PLAY ON MAC!

I have a 2013 MacBook Pro (i7 2.3GHz, Nvidia 750M) with latest OS (El Captain) and this game does not run at all! It will start and just stuck in a black screen.
Pretty disappointed, how can you sell something for MacOS and it does not even run? It's not like it would be hard for Valve or Telltale to test if the game runs on a Mac.

A perfect follow-up to the legendary Monkey Island series. Hits all the right notes in terms of typical Monkey Island humor. Graphics might be jarring for some but it's better than EMI especially once you get used to the style. The first episode is the weakest but it gets better as you play. Puzzles overall are simpler compared to earlier titles but this also means they are not frustrating, so it's well-balanced. Absolutely recommended for MI fans.

El peso que tiene Monkey Island dentro de las Aventuras Gráficas es inmenso. Peso y reputación ganadas a pulso gracias a sus dos primeras entregas. Si no las jugaste en su época y las has jugado recientemente, quizás te parezca que exagero. Pero cualquiera que las probara en su momento te confirmará que son algo irrepetible.

Cuando salió la primera entrega, los PCs tenian 16 colores en una resolución de 320x240 pixeles. El juego ocupaba 4 diskettes de 1.4 megas cada uno. En la segunda entrega ya teniamos PCs con 256 colores en resolución 640x480 pixeles. En la caja del Monkey Island 2 venian ni más ni menos que ¡¡¡¡12!!!! diskettes. Yo que lo tenia en Amiga 500 me desesperaba cambiando de diskettes... No tenia disco duro.

¿A que viene este rollo nostálgico? Es para que se entienda que una valoración objetiva de este nuevo Monkey Island sin compararlo con los sentimientos que nos generó las primeras entregas de la saga es casi imposible. Como he dicho fueron dos productos irrepetibles.

Esta nueva entrega está bien, tiene momentos divertidos, algún nuevo personaje interesante y algún guiño a todos los anteriores episodios de la saga. Pero eso no me basta... Hasta que me doy cuenta que luchar contra el peso de las primeras entregas es demasiado. Incluso la tercera y la cuarta entrega perdieron por goleada por culpa de ese peso.

Así pues, ¿Por qué recomiendo el juego? Porque si tuviera otro nombre y otro protagonista, sería un juego recomendable y entretenido. ¿Y teniendo este nombre y este protagonista? Pues también, porque he aprendido que se puede competir con los primeros juegos, pero es imposible competir con los recuerdos que tenemos de esos juegos.

Guybrush, nunca volveras a ser un aprendiz de pirata, pero sigues siendo el rey,

This game is a mixed bag of a few funny parts but the rest boring. I will review this from a perspective of a loyal Monkey Island fan that has played and owns the first three.

A. Story - The story from Telltale games is okay but is kind of stupid is some parts. It does not flow as well as the first three nor does it feel engaging.

B. Canon/Lore of Characters - Telltale creates characters that are like a spinoff and not true to their original personalities.
1) Guybrush is now some heroic pirate who is known all over the Caribbean. Guybrush normal goofy childish side seems to have been minimalized now. He is mean and cynical in some parts of the game which is not like the original Guybrush we knew.
2) Voodoo Lady is now some manipulator of the entire story. In the originals she was like a helper/advisor only.
3) Stan - The voice of Stan is totally different than the originals and personality is totally different. Stan usually was funny and tried to swindle some money out of people, with arms waving everywhere through any dialogue. In this game he is not funny.
4) Elaine - She is somewhat of watered down version than her former self. In previous games she was more independent and strong.
5) LeChuck - Turns into some nice guy through most chapters then becomes evil again. The concept of him being nice is so outlandishly stupid or odd, that it just doesn't seem like the LeChuck we knew.

C. Consistency - Telltale does not follow previous lore or rules that the first three games set. An example is the Voodoo Lady mentions "You cannot get rid of pure evil" in Curse of Monkey Island. Being able to kill LeChuck in the end of this game doesn't truly fit. Another example is the contradiction when Guybrush gets his hand chopped of in Ch. 1 but magically gets it back in the end. That makes no sense.

D. Graphics - Telltale invented a more 3D interface. This gets really confusing and annoying because you easily can miss things. The original pixelated or even the special edition allows for a better visual point and click interface because the screen is more 2d and flat. The 3D characters look kind of ugly. The special edition of 1 & 2 and cartoon look of Curse of Monkey Island fit the characters and the story great. The 3D view of these characters makes them look odd.

E. Dialogue - Numerous times you are given a choice on dialogues and which to click, BUT frequently Guybrush will not say what you click. This only happened a couple of times in the first three because the dialogue would have been super rude or inappropriate. In the 5 chapters here, it happens way too frequently so the choice you have on what you want Guybrush to say is already programmed in the game to say something else.

F. Interface - The first three games had choices like a) push b) pull c) pick up d) use e) talk etc. etc. This game you only just click on an item. You click an item and it automatically picks it up. It's like a toddler could play the game almost. This takes away from the game making it less engaging. There are a few actions in your inventory but the amount of actions is reduced.

Overall, it depends on your expectations. I played the original Monkey Island 1, 2, & 3 over and over numerous of times in my childhood and introduced them to my wife. She likes 1, 2, & 3 but for both of us Telltale Tales of Monkey Island does not feel like the original characters and story we enjoyed. I would not recommend it at full price nor do I like it. If you want to purchase it, I would suggest do it only when it is on sale like we did during the summer sale. For us this was just disappointing and felt like a new artificial story that was not consistent with the original series.

Tales of Monkey Island (all 5 chapters)

I thoroughly enjoyed Tales of Monkey Island, I simply couldn’t put the games down and finished all chapters within a few days. First off though I’ll say that I can’t recall if I have played the old Monkey Island games, and if I did it was when I was too young to remember the game’s title! So I won’t be basing my review of this game off of comparisons with previous games.

Puzzles
The puzzles are really well done, definitely what you’d expect from a good adventure game. Personally I enjoy puzzles that lean towards being logical and not being pixel hunting, and this game definitely satisfied me on that department. Usually when you need to find an item/ have found an item while exploring, you can pretty much imagine what you’d be able to do with the items. That doesn’t mean the puzzles are flat out easy though, it just means that you can fuzzily see how the solution would come about, but would need some more exploring or twists and turns to complete each step.

Controls
The controls are something I didn’t really like, you have to drag your mouse in the direction you want Guybrush to move, so it’s not as easy as clicking a point on the screen and having him walk there (certain highlighted areas excluded). Most of the time was spent “swiping” my mouse to and fro while holding down the left mouse button, which really gave my hand and wrist cramps (well, I was playing for long periods too, but no thanks carpal tunnel)! I tried using the keyboard arrow keys for a bit, but as they usual in 2D/3D games it’s clunky so I stuck with using the mouse.

Story
Story is good enough, none of it seems like filler, just quality swashbuckling pirate adventure! I really liked the character Morgan LeFlay, badass pirate hunter, and hope to see her around more! Other characters like the Voodoo Lady appear again and they are well developed as well. Bonus: so many innuendos!

Other aspects
Playtime for me was roughly 4 hours per chapter, which pretty much corresponds with the time on HowLongToBeat, totalling slightly less than 20 hours for me. Voice acting and soundtrack wise, they’re both great especially the voice acting (as expected), though I wish they could have some more loops for the background music.

in 2009, telltale and lucasarts crafted a fitting conclusion to the monkey island series with Tales of Monkey Island and i personally think that if there is never another MI game ever made, Tales is a good way to end things on a high note. while the first two episodes are kinda hit or miss, the season starts to pick up steam with episode 3 and continues forth into a pretty great (and auctally pretty dark) conclusion with episode 5.

some of the jokes might be a bit dated in 2015 (OH I GET IT. YOUTUBE) but corny humor has always been a hallmark of the series, and at least it's nowhere near as bad as EMI's *relentless* references to 2000's pop culture.

if you like the monkey island series and want to see what Guybrush and crew are up to lately, i highly recommand it.

The Monkey Island Series was and still is my favourite series of games to play.

This does not disappoint. It has the humour and puzzle fun of the Original series. It also has a much better interface and graphics. Oh and Elaine, Guybrush and Le Chuck, still the three greatest games characters ever created.

The end credits for each chapter should not be missed, they are hilarious and contain old favourites and nods to the original games. I just loved each chapter of the game.

Oh and no glitches. Take note you other games developers, this is how gaming should be done.

It's sort of surreal to be playing what is essentially a spiritual successor to what is essentially a spiritual successor, but the game's alright, even if it feels like a charicature of the previous iterations.

I like the game. The 5-part episodic structure seems silly and always feels to me like a cash-grab. Each of the 5 episodes is tragically short so there aren't too many puzzles, but their solutions are as obtuse, but obvious as the older ones so at least it's being done right. The mechanics try to dumb-down the nature of point-and-click adventure as it forces the 2D characters into a very rough 2.5D/3D interpretation. I am quite unfond of the character models as they make it look poor, but that's because it's the same version of the game that was dumbed-down for mobile. The audio leverages references to the remarkable (not for sale) soundtracks of the originals so it's pretty good. The writing is adequate and brings in some really interesting characters, situations and concepts, although some of the older characters certainly don't seem like themselves, but that's the cost of being so far removed from the source. If they cleaned up the pointy-clicky bits and made the characters not look like beginner's guide to 3D, I would love this much more than I do.

I cannot really say 100% if this game was worth it or not. I've played all the other Monkey Islands in the past, and besides Monkey Island 4, I enjoyed all of them.

I will review this game from different points of view:
1) CHARACTERS: Guybrush never gets boring, he is still able to make you laugh and give some funny commentaries on what is happening to him even if the situation seems hopeless. His wife Elaine is even more annoying than she ever was, and also this time she's one of the main causes of Guybrush's trouble. Le Chuck is seen for the first time as a human, and the Vodoo Lady has some nice corpse paint on her face. Even some old acquaintances have found their place in the game. There are a couple of good characters which worked well, like De Singe and Morgan, and the side characters also were well thought and hilarious (like the sailors belonging to De Cava's troupe). All characters were well thought and well designed.

2)STORY: The story is "innovative" and well thought, and has some nice little twists in it which keep you interested. The fact that it develops over 5 episodes, though, makes it sometimes "slow paced", but overall the whole idea works very well, and keeps you wanting to know what happens next.

3)GAMEPLAY: that's the main point which ruined the whole experience for me. Until the 4th episode I was able to manage everything by myself, without getting any "help" on the internet. Starting with the fourth episode, I had some troubles understanding the map the Voodoo Lady gives you to make the Esponja grow, and after some failed attempts I had to look it up to continue. The game also had a bug I could only solve thanks to a German blog, and some of the stuff I found in the fourth episode was pointless (the liquid glass, the wax, etc.), and made me loose a lot of time trying to find out how to use it. In episode 5 I got REALLY frustrated and had to look up for a solution too many times. I can say I am an experienced point&click adventurer and always manage to solve everything by myself, but this time the connections between objects and effect was "absurd" at times, so that I would never ever have thought about the combinations that were needed to go on. The whole going back and forth through the Crossroads was kind of an annoying time loss I would have avoided, and the "advises" the Voodoo Ladies gives you are not really helpful in finding out what to do next.

So, overall, the game was well done (even if there were some mistakes in the German synchronisation, and sometimes you could even hear the same guy giving voices to two different characters, which is never good), the story was nice and worked very well, but the Gameplay ruined my overall experience, so that I just wanted the game to finally be over in the last chapter.

Tales of Monkey Island does not skip a beat. It's as if the Monkey Island series never stopped. The graphic style, the humour and the storyline are all what one would expect from a Monkey Island game. Telltale does it again with a fantastic series that you can't miss. Great graphics, great voice overs, fluid cartoony animation, and some of the funniest dialogue since..........the last Monkey Island. Can't miss this wonderful series. Grab it now.

Just plain awesome and hilarious. I had a really hard time taking a break in between chapters because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Highly recommend.

I cannot believe I actually found a new Monkey Island adventure that felt as funny, challenging and interesting as the original old series. Lots of nostalgia feelings, quotes and recognizable characters and interactions that made this game so loveable. A must have for Monkey Island adventurers!

This is a franchise that I had grown up playing. It holds a really, really special place in my heart and I was so afraid of playing this game.

Prior to playing this game I had had no previous exposure to any Telltale games, little did I know that not only was this game in safe hands but it was in caring hands.

Yes the puzzles might be a little simple, but the soul of the game is the same, this is a Monkey Island game in everyway that it should be.
