monkey island 4
this is the last of the monkey island series.lucas arts took a step forward and introduced a 3d engine.great game but in my opinion not as great as the previous titles
Guybrush thought all his troubles were over after he defeated LeChuck and married Elaine Marley, the Governor of Mêlée Island. But as soon as Guybrush and Elaine return from their 3 months of honeymoon to Mêlée Island, there’s trouble afoot and Guybrush is catapulted into a maelstrom of thievery, voodoo, and experimental prosthetic devices. Armed only with his sharp wit and an uncanny ability to hold his breath for ten whole minutes, our hero navigates ever deeper into a villainous scheme to wipe out the Tri-Island Area using the fearsome power of the Ultimate Insult inEscape from Monkey Island. Excerpted from "The Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood: The Monkey Island Years"
"Spitting the sand of Monkey Island from my mouth, I began to wonder if the life of a mighty pirate was all it was cracked up to be. I'd ignored recent events that should have been warning shots across the bow of my soul, from my wife's brush with death to the anti-pirate ramblings of Australian gazillionaire Ozzie Mandrill. If only I'd chosen a different path, LeChuck might still be dead, and the mystery of the Ultimate Insult might have remained an enigma. If I'd never picked up a sword, the grog-swilling pirates of the Tri-Island Area might be unthreatened by the twin forces of gentrification and demonic heckfire. If only . . . suddenly, the hairy finger of a familiar monkey tapped me on the shoulder. It was time. Time to stop LeChuck (again). Time to make the world safe for pirates. Time for the biggest battle of my swashbuckling life."
