View Full Version : Monkey combat rules!

I just finished the monkey combat part of act3, and i thought it was great.
I'd seen loads of posts on how boring it was, but i enjoyed working out all the moves and thought it was a really good part of the game.
Pitty there's no real skill to it though, cuz insult arm wrestling was fun if you thought what would really hurt someone if they'd just said that to you.

Yeah, I agree with you, I like monkey combat as well.
The insult arm wrestling is easy if you've played Curse of Monkey Island http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

I agree with y'all. It was funny. But thar should be some kind o' cheat that those guys, who don't like it or find it difficult, could get past o' it.

I desagree with you all. If I want to win EMI again, I'll have to get the insults again http://www.escapemi.com/forums/frown.gif . In that way, I prefer MI1, MI2 and MI3.

The only bad thing about monkey combat is that once you've learnt all the moves, theres nothing to do, it requires no skill. But learning the moves was cool!

Monkey combat was the only thing i got real stuck on, in the end the only way is to make a nice and neat chart. But after that theres nothing else to it.

everything is fun the first time, I say. But I don't think I'm gonna play the game again if you need to do everything again with all the writing down and stuff.
Never, I'm to lazy for that.

i loved it

I thought it was pretty cool at first, but once i got all the moves down it was so easy it was just going through the routine of it. No skill, no challenge, no excitement, that is, after you master the Kombat, but that doesnt take long. Yes, it was an original idea, yes it was fun for awhile, but it DID get boring. And the end of the game, oh man! did i hate it then... i guess i am too persisitent!
