The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood Review

Now here it is, the penultimate episode of Tales of Monkey Island - any boy is the title a mouthful! It's advisable that you read the reviews for the previous episodes in order to appreciate the scores in this one. It also helps this review to be concise!

Sound (5/5)
Sound quality doesn't appear to be poor in this episode so it gets top marks thanks to some help from the usual high quality voice acting!

Music (4/5)
Once again no complaints with the music - it's as good as previous episodes - although sometimes it seems that music is missing when it shouldn't be...

Graphics (4/5)
Not much change in the graphics score. It's pretty much the same as the previous episodes. Graphics are reasonably good, although some of the minor characters are obviously used with recycled models...

Plot (4/5)
The plot gets a lower score than the previous episode since it's simply not as funny and I'm actually tempted to give it an even lower score, if it weren't for the fact that this episode is probably the most important episode in terms of storyline and thanks to all the plot twists that are revealed.

Once again, an old Monkey Island character returns in this episode, and that character is a certain salesman with a funky jacket...

There are again puzzles galore in this episode but the puzzles aren't very original, especially considering one of them is navigating around Flotsam Island again (just like in Episode 1).

Also you tend to spend a lot of the game in one spot due to you having to defend yourself in court.

Replayability (4/5)
Just like the other episodes, this game is about as replayable as adventure games get (without resorting to gimmicks like alternative endings and different classes - then you're entering RPG hybrid territory there :)).

Polish (4/5)
I didn't have any issues with this episode so it's about as polished as the first one.

Overall - 75%
Not the best episode in the series but probably the most important in terms of the storyline thanks to plot twists aplenty.
