i paid $60 canadian. this game was very short and the puzzles were very easy. is that all they could fit on 2 CDs? Grim Fandango had way more depth and better puzzles and it had 2 CDs. the graphics are the same quality. what happened here? don't get me wrong here. it was a good game but the puzzles ruined it. most of the time there were really easy ones. then there were 2 or 3 hard ones. nothing in between. as soon as you look at a walkthrough for help on 1 puzzle it will probably same you hours of doing stupid stuff. most of the puzzles made sense though. i still don't understand why i had to carry the fake body parts through the whole game.

Escape From Monkey Island is okay. i'll give it 7.5/10.

if you want this game wait till it goes down in price.

Oh no... If it is easy then...

oh well, I'm still going to play it trough. Was it even shorter and easier than CMI?

I hope the answer is no...

WAY shorter

So much for taking the world by storm, looks like i'll be taking it by siege.

WAY shorter?!?!...

Well... then I am disappointed already...

Now I am not sure whether to buy it or not at all...

and I heard Murray doesn't star in a big role... http://www.escapemi.com/forums/frown.gif

he's on a stool outside some store.

Wow. I mean. Oh yeah.

Why can't LucasArts realize that Murray is the most loveable character in MI history? Why can't they make a bigger role to him! Now I don't understand that...

Oh Murray... how the fate tests you...

if there ever will be MI5 I will recall it to have bigger role of Murray.

There is a little bonus game of pong with Murray's skull and bananas. Have to spin him round untill he starts repeating himself, turn away and type MURRAYBALL

May the Force be with you.

That sounds quite funny!


Still I am quite disappointed that he doesn't have a bigger role...

I somewhat felt sorry for Murray because he didn't have one of the main roles in CMI; altho' he was in good scenes.

But like one Finnish game magazine said in its EMI review; "Many characters from previous Monkey Islands are just there so old Monkey-Island-veterans could meet their favourites... sadly many of them have just few phrases to speak with, and I was disappointed as this happened with murray too"...
