Review This Game


One of best quests i ever seen. Great atmosphere, great MUSIC, great character, great voices with rich Jamaica accent. Pretty to solve puzzles (never had need to search for right answers). Good fun plot and carefully made setting allowing next chapters.


Fans of Monkey Island rejoice, because there's a new kid on the block. The journey down is chock-full of excellent music and go...rgeous art (although the tribal character design creeps some people out). Voice acting is also pretty good. The point and click gameplay is right up there with the classics like Monkey Island and should feel familiar to fans of the genre straight away. Dialogue is great, there are plenty of puzzles to solve and places to explore, although the story could use a little more fleshing out. Here's hoping for that in Episode 2. Brilliant, very polished game, and highly recommended.
