I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a cheap laugh.
All right, so there wasn't really much to the plot. Something bad happens to your girlfriend/fiancé/governor upon whom you have this huge crush, and you have to defeat some pirate/skeleton/zombies in order to save her. Nothing we haven't seen before in countless other outlets of entertainment. So what makes the computer series known as "Monkey Island" so special? Why are the games so enthralling? And, perhaps most important of all, why was the last installment so danged terrible?
