Sam & Max, Wallace & Gromit, and Strong Bad prove the company can put out quality content on a consistent schedule. And with their signature sense of humor and specialty in graphic adventure games, they're the obvious choice to head up a resurrection of the long dormant Monkey Island series. In that, they were successful: they infuse the five-chapter Tales of Monkey Island with humor, freshness, and a fun story. It's not the best looking game out there, but it's sure to make you laugh."
