Worst episodes

posted by Hee Ho Ho on - last edited - Viewed by 178 users

What do you guys think is the worst monkey island episode. I vote 1 and 5.

The reason I vote 1 is because the statements you click aren't the ones that is actually said. Fortunately they fixed this later on. I don't think any monkey island game has that issue. They always say what you click except in special situations.

I voted 5 because it felt weird. Guybrush is all gloomy and everyone's sad.

  • Grammar-wise, I would say that "The Siege of Spinner Cay" is the worst because of too many typos in the subtitles, making it a wanton cruelty to the common comma.

  • That reminds me. I hate the way they record the voice. They make it bad quality for elaine. Didn't the people at the recording studio notice distorton? Or was it messed up during the adding of audio in the game?

    Did you know pixar was actually created by lucasarts? I really like pixar. I just hope telltale can make a big leap and be like pixar. :)

    They made a patch to fix it on chapter 2.

  • Ok but it wasn't just chapter 2 was it. I can't remember but it was all elaine parts when she is poxed isn't it?

    I dunno I only noticed it bad on Chapter 2 by the water fall.

  • This is probably because Alexandra Boyd recorded her voice in the UK and sent the sound files to Telltale. (She explained it in the Tales of Monkey Island Blog interview.) I never noticed anything wrong with the voice, though, but this is probably because I played after it was fixed.

  • wasn't there also something about lechuck or elaine being voiced by two people?

    edit: nobody has an issue with chapter 4. that's good. the only thing about that chapter for me is that it is the only buggy episode. i have the jail bug. automatically get transported to jail. there is a save game fix and a game update i believe so i'm not too bothered.

  • Lechuck was voiced by another person in the first episode, but they later redubbed it.

    I didn't like the setting of number 3, but on the other hand it was perhaps the funniest. It's either number 1 or 3 that I think is the worst. Number one was very forgettable because I can't remember anything from it. Many people dislike number two, but I likd the setting and the golden turtle puzzle was very well designed.

    Those truly were the days :)... I want them back :(.

    Adam Harrington was the original voice-over for LeChuck in Episode 1. Earl Boen voiced him in Episode 4, 5 and the re-dub of Episode 1 (he's also the voice-over for LeChuck in all of the other games in the franchise).

    @Grojak said: Number one was very forgettable because I can't remember anything from it.

    That doesn't make it forgettable for everyone. I actually remember a lot from '...Narwhal'. In fact, it has two of the most memorable puzzles I've ever experienced in an adventure game: firstly, the clothesline puzzle (where you blast Winslow off of the ship) - I thought that it was simple, but ingenious. Secondly, there was the puzzle in which you had to escape DeSinge's lab using nothing but the moving chair and your feet - I thought it was terrific, well-designed, and I felt a sense of achievement upon solving it.

    Put it wasn't only the puzzles that I found memorable; I also remember a ton of the dialogue lines from it, such as the "When was that, about 10 minutes ago?", "Like a toilet!", "Actually, it's a very BIG rash!", "Like a volcano!" lines, among many others, which I shan't go into for the sake of keeping this short.

    I remember the majority of this episode's content, I think, from the puzzles, to the dialogue, to the basic plot, to the items, etc. In fact, '...Narwhal' may very well be the most memorable episode for me. Whether that's due to the quality of the episode, or the fact that I savoured it the most due to it being the first piece of new 'Monkey Island' content that I'd experienced in many years, I'm not too sure, but my point is that I found it quite a memorable episode, and that your failure to remember much of it doesn't necessarily make it a 'forgettable episode'.

  • One thing that I really do not like is the fact that nearly all the episodes have a major three part puzzle. I think that previous monkey islands had a three part puzzle element but takes of monkey island over does it.episode one its the leaving the island part.episode two is the three artifacts. Episode three is the vote. Episode four is the trial. I haven't replayed episode five so I don't know about that one. It seems too tedious to accomplish small things. I also noticed audio distortion in episodes one, two, maybe three. I'm playing on a laptop so the audio its very precise. It is also not limited to elaine.
