Game Description & Reviews:
The Curse of Monkey Island is a point & click adventure game developed by LucasArts, it is the third game in the Monkey Island series. The game was released in 1997, 6 years after the release of Monkey Island 2. After confronting zombie pirate LeChuck and finding a ring in his treasure hold, Guybrush washes up the shores of Plunder Island where he finds Elaine Marley. Guybrush uses the ring he found in LeChuck's treasure hold to propose to Elaine, the ring ends up being cursed and turnes Elaine into a stone statue. Guybrush needs to save Elaine from the ring's curse and finally marry his plunder bunny. The old SCUMM interface was replaced by an upgraded version that was first used in Full Throttle. The player simply points at an object, holds the left mouse button and selects from 3 icons what action to take. It is the first Monkey Island game that was voice acted, and also introduced a more cartoon look for the series. The game received a lot of ambivalence from Monkey Island fans for its art direction and change in staff. The game was made without any involvment from series creator Ron Gilbert, whom left the company a few years before, and with little if any involvment from Monkey 1 and 2 writers/designers Dave Grossman (whom also left the company) and Tim Schafer (he was busy working on his masterpiece Grim Fandango). Instead animator and graphic designer Larry Ahern, and Jonathan Ackley took leading roles in its development. ---The game holds true to the series hugely high standards. Gorgeous music, incredibly witty, pretty, and lovely all around. It hasn't aged a bit. My personal favorite in the series.
As a child of the 90's, Monkey Island Three was my introduction to adventure games if not video games in general. It is still my favorite and likely always will be.
After the second game, our hero, Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate is left floating in from the carnival of the damned in a bumper car until he floats into the middle of a battle between his beloved Elaine Marley and the evil Zombie pirate Le Chuck. I don't want to give away any of the story. Just know that it's a hilarious story filled with voodoo carnivals, insult swordfighting, lactose-intolerant volcano gods, slightly ridiculous puzzle solving, the undead, and true love.
You will love this game. That is not a prediction, it is cold hard fact. Unless you're a robot. You're not a robot are you? Get it. Now. Why aren't you playing it already.
