I've sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I've never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I'm sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie's treasures. And if that's not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die! Excerpted from ""The Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood: The Monkey Island Years"" - Third in the legendary Monkey Island series of graphic adventures - Film quality animation, voice, sound and music--the undead come to life before your very eyes! - Incredible high-resolution (640 x 480) graphics! - A barrel of gameplay--estimated 30-plus hours! - Two difficulty settings: regular and Mega-Monkey (now with more puzzley goodness)! - New and improved insults suitable for swordfights and other fun occasions!

The Curse of Monkey Island reviews and comments

+ Super artistic direction + puzzles very inventive + humor at the rendezvous-history not always super well told 8/10 monkey business!

Nothing to Envy Ron Gilbert's Monkey Island. An example of how to reinvent and successfully continue a saga without its creator, it's too bad he stayed here.

It has No translations being that the original game brought several languages... While it's cheap, it's not worth it if you don't drive the English, you miss the whole story and the fun parts in the conversations.

My favorite game ever. For me is perfect, The art is wonderful, the soundtrack above all the song of the intro puts a smile on my face, Guybrush is a very good character, Muray is very scary and very strange to LucasArts, too much more than Deveria. Your mother's Shell Disñey

The Game is still remembered as if I played the Game yesterday and so the Puzzles are solved quite quickly, but the Humour is, even if you know which Gag is coming now, undefeated. However, I would have liked at least to be able to set the Resolution to a current Standard. Unfortunately, this is not the Case.

Finally after a long time this work of art works again in the current devices, with WIN10. It is Not a remastering or anything like that, but it is the Monkey 3 pure and hard. The graphics hold more or less the passage of time, but its inconbustible humour and its incredible soundtrack, continue as the first day. Advisable 100% and more in the pack that come the first 3 Monkey Islands for a reasonable price. A compulsory for any lover of graphic adventures.

It is still a pity that the game is only the version "Emulateur" it would have been better in version more adapted for its time to have a more "official" version. Seriously, it's still a big nuggo this game! I crossed so many fingers to see it appear on steam... But not in emulator version (T-T)/! But this game does not lose its charm! The FR version is superb! The game seems stable despite the emulation. (Charged for the blow * hum *) A game that I advise everyone to try at least once in his life!

It is impossible to evaluate this Game objectively. Monkey Island 3 is Childhood. I learned to read with this Game and have played it at least once a Year since. The Humour is great, the Puzzles crisp (SCHÄTZE I. How am I supposed to evaluate puzzles that I have known in and out for 20 Years?), the Artwork is super-charming and the Synchro puts the Cherry on top of it. Although I find the German Language Edition even better. But that, unfortunately, is not on Steam. An ingenious Monkey Island Part, though not from the Pen Of the Creator.
