I'm on my third play through of it now. I really love the atmosphere and humor and I've had a lot of fun with it so far, so I'd say it's worth it. I'd love to say it's a masterpiece, but sadly it isn't.
There are some areas that you have to go through regardless of your combination of characters, and these get repetitive fast. There isn't enough variation in how you solve these depending on characters and there's too much back tracking since you often have to move several characters separately through the same areas. Especially so since your inventory only can hold one item.
I'm a bit disappointed that Ron Gilbert's magnum opus didn't deliver a bit more in terms of gameplay and I might give it a 7/10. Still, the character specific sections are awesome puzzle and story wise and, as mentioned, the atmosphere and humor are top notch. I'm going to focus on that and give it a 10/10.
