Return to Monkey Island?

Postby VideoGameCritic » September 7th, 2022, 5:04 pm

Anybody interested in the latest Monkey Island game?

I have to admit I'm not too keen on the art style. What do you think?

I wonder if this will be released on physical media?

It looks OK. The aesthetics aren't great but are a sight better than the 3D games (particularly Escape), and I think the sheer loathing I've seen elsewhere for the visuals is undeserved. Not seeing too many new characters or locations, am seeing plenty of callbacks. I expect that it'll be fun enough but won't add anything of substance to the legacy of the '90s games. I have more thoughts, but I already posted them in the previous thread; I'm not sure why there's a new one now.
