Although far from being perfect, this 5 chapters adventure is a solid experience.
The music was okay - unremarkable at points, which I consider a good thing, because it let me focus on the plot and the puzzles. Great voice acting, though!
I liked the graphics, and the recycled faces and body types didn't bother me too much. The camera was very cinematic, a problem, when you are controlling the character and get lost because of it.
The puzzles were great. I admit I had to look up some, but the majority of them was a nice combination of logic and lateral thinking, in the spirit of the series. Inside jokes and references were abundant and really fun!
Moving to plot and characters. Spoiler alert!
This Guybrush is definitely more mature than in the first games, but he's still a big softie. The Voodoo Lady still rocks. LeChuck had a couple of great moments, although in the end it boils down to 'he's evil because he's evil'.
I have some major complaints regarding the character of Elaine, which is kinda there in all the 5 chapters, in the background and in need to be rescued--twice! (What has she done to the Elaine of Secret and Revenge?)
The new character, Morgan, kicks ♥♥♥--except she doesn't, really. Her whole reason d'etre revolves around Guybrush. It partly makes sense because of her job, but really. She feels down because of him, fights with his wife because of him, gets killed because of him, is cheered up because of him, sacrifices what is important for him... gimme a break. No, I don't think the hole 'childhood hero' thing justifies all of it. I just hope we will see more of her in upcoming games, she's promising.
And for the love of God, the Guybrush/Elaine/Morgan triangle was so weirdly orchestrated. It felt awkward. I saw it as forced.
Considering the media today, Elaine and Morgan got a decent treatment, but I still consider it below average for my tastes. These two points affected my liking the most.
tl;dr solid game(s), treatment of female characters could have been handled better, 8/10
