Pros:

  • Good Story, very well written, with excellent banter between characters, The graphics are simplebutbeautiful, very easy on the eyes. The music definitely makes you feel like you are a pirate.
  • Voice acting is still top notch and the puzzles have been improved.
  • Very funny, you get to interact with Elaine and LeChuck in a whole new light and more islands to explore.

Cons:

  • Controls! I would kill for a better system; just say no to “Click and Drag.”, Sometimes overly complicated or unintuitive puzzles, A bit too hamhanded and cheesy at times.
  • Replay factor is minimal and you really have to play the first episode to know whats going on.
