More of the same pirate comedy action! 0

I had played the second chapter of Tales of Monkey Island a while ago, but I haven't had the chance to review it. Now, with the third chapter coming out I figured I'd review the second one before it's too late. Once again, I'm playing the PC version.The second chapter picks up directly where the first one left off, which is good since the first game had a giant cliffhanger. It's nice to have an immediate answer to the question at the end of the first episode. We get introduced to some new chara...

Good but Repitition is rearing its head again!! 0

 Tales Of Monkey Island Episode 2: The Siege Of Spinner Cay is as the title suggests the second in a series of five Monkey Island games released by the masters of episodic gaming Telltale Games(Sam and Max season one and two).Their sucessful relaunch of Sam and Max led them to relaunch Monkey Island in episodic format.

That also means though that each chapter can be more reviewed critically than part of a larger whole which makes it slightly easier to criticize. Whereas chapter one was all about getting our hero his own ship and getting back to Elaine, chapter 2 feels more setup than anything, almost side-story and you get the feeling this one i...

Tales of Monkey Island: The Siege of Spinner Cay 0

 Overall, I really can't say that the second chapter of this series was as strong as the first. It's possible that the first chapter was just extra beefy to introduce the whole plot, but Spinner Cay felt insubstantial in comparison. I don't mean just in length, because the first was actually a bit long in the tooth, but in having a fulfilling arc to the story and gameplay. It didn't have the real three act structure I've come to expect, and it's not like the puzzles that were there made u...
