The Secret of Monkey Island is an adventure game using the popular SCUMM engine. It is the first in a long series of Monkey Island games.

Status

I have beaten the game, but required occasional hints.

Review

  • Overall: 5/10
  • Best Version: DOS remake?

Good

  • The script is pretty hilarious, lots of funny dialog options.
  • The graphics are quite beautiful, even in the EGA version.

Bad

  • You're unable to choose a lot of the dialog options because the game cuts-short a lot of conversations. The only way to read these options is to keep reloading the game.
  • Like many adventure games, some of the puzzles are particularly difficult to solve and don't make much sense. I can attribute this to trying to pad the length of the game, trying to sell hint books, or laziness from the developers. Either case is annoying.
  • Several parts of the game are just too silly and ruin the experience (but only temporarily).

Ugly

  • Nothing really, this game is pretty solid.
