GamesRadar writes: "Previously, on Monkey Island: Voodoo pox! Human LeChuck! Magical sea-sponges! At this point in the series, it's almost like reviewing a TV show rather than a game. The basic structure, the characters, the overall plot – you're not going to jump into Guybrush's world at this point. So the question is more how well this episode continues the series, than how it might stand alone. In short... it's strange. But then, the majority of it is set inside a giant manatee's stomach."
