Now, i'm not going to say this is the best game in the series. its far from it. but its still pretty kick ass. setting aside the wierd interface and controls, this is one very solid, very funny adventure game. you can't play the first 3 Monkey Island games and not play this one. its like eating a 4 course meal and... um... leaving out the 4th course.EMI is not a bad game but it will never join its brethren in the panoply of gods of the genre. I for one would like to see LucasArts get out of the sequel to sequel to sequel business altogether and focus solely on new ideas.This game is a great adventure which really gets you involved. A good one even if you are not a fan of the adventure games!Players who're new to the Monkey Island series may get the sense while playing the game that they're watching a bunch of old friends regale each other with old in-jokes; it's easy to feel as if you're being left out of the fun if you don't catch the references.As always with the Monkey Island series, it is great!!!! This is the kind of game i like, there aren't many of this kind of games. The puzzels where great and not to difficult. Only one puzzle i just couldn't solve, and unfortunatley had to use the walktrough. It was the puzzle where you need to throw the rocks into the canals. That was a little far fetched.I think Escape from monkey Island is a cool game..but if I never had the walk through I would't even be able to do a thing! :) Its hard..but it makes oyu use your brain..and think. Its very fun.The game's very, very good but I can't give it a 10 because I think ... eh ... I know that Monkey 3 was better. This is a amazing game with a great storyline, a great gameplay, what the heck ... everything's great. A excellent game!Its not bad, but age has certainly been harsh to this game while its predecessors are still as good as they day they first came out of the box. Many of the puzzles are baffling and Monkey Kombat just plain sucks. Please, go back to 2D animation and the CMI interface.Fun game, but disappointing ending. Monkey Kombat is not as witty as previous MI games' insult fighting. I ran across a few technical glitches in the game play. The best part is exploring the islands, and talking with characters, but the puzzles themselves are a bit boring.It is excellent! It has everything in it : Fun (lots of it) , adventure , fighting and what i like the most , mindless chatting and mindless actions. Hahaha excellent game.Definetely doesn't deserve all the hate it had, at least back in the day. The graphics, at least for characters are not very appealing and the monkey combat was simply stupid, but everything else is just what you can expect from a Monkey island, definetely a good game in the saga, just probably not as good as the 3 previous ones.
This game has a lot of humor and color in it, the characters are very well developed and consistent (with the visual exception) throughout the series. The controls can be a bit awkward, especially with a fixed angle camera on every area. A very decent game for it's genre.Fab' love the monkey Kombat stuff! It's hard and very challenging. However, I found The Curse of Monkey Island split my side with more quirky joke and comments.Good adventure game, bad Monkey Island game. Plot holes hurt my soul. Monkey Kombat hurts me physically.In regards to the 2018 re-release, the biggest flaw about EFMI is its horrific controls. I get it that it was a game that (for some reason) had a PS2 release, but the PC version should have been able to utilize the mouse as lining up Guybrush using use the arrow keys to get anywhere is just impossible. Not to mention the poor keybinds that spreads everything across the keyboard. Just whatIn regards to the 2018 re-release, the biggest flaw about EFMI is its horrific controls.

Just what was LucasArts thinking?…The humor is droll but affecting, and the game play so well laid out that this program has to be considered a worthy sequel to its predecessor.
