A deft and heartfelt journey through nostalgia.

A brilliant return to the series at its best that modernises the point-and-click form.

Return to Monkey Island expectedly comes packed full of smartly crafted puzzles, funny dialogue, and memorable characters. But as series creator Ron Gilbert returns to the series’ director’s chair for the first time since 1991, it unexpectedly offers a lot of heart, too. It is an adventure gamer’s delight.

A hugely successful reboot for the beloved point 'n' click adventure, that achieves its comeback without sacrificing either its sense of humour or some enjoyably tricky puzzles.

Return to Monkey Island is a heartfelt and nostalgic return to a point-and-click adventure series that had long been left behind. It's fun, smart, and intuitive, with a story and presentation that is surprisingly self-aware. Whether this is your first brush with Guybrush Threepwood or your sixth, Return to Monkey Island is a swashbuckling adventure you won't want to miss.

Return to Monkey Island is profoundly nostalgic and relentlessly funny, and I'm once again a kid, laughing at Guybrush's umpteenth last-ditch efforts to distract his opponents with, "Look behind you, a three-headed monkey!"

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.
