Craig Nye writes, "If there's only one thing we've learned over the years playing the Monkey Island games, it's that there are two ways of doing things: the right way and the Guybrush Threepwood way. And if this latest episodic entry into the series is an indication, it's a lesson that hasn't diminished with time. This new tale kicks off with our hero ready to put an end to LeChuck as well as saving his beloved Elaine with the help of a voodoo-enchanted cutlass. Naturally, this simple task is botched in patented Guybrush fashion and he instead unintentionally turns LeChuck human whilst at the same time unleashing the Pox of LeChuck across the world. An arbitrary explosion and a Pox-infected left hand later, and Guybrush Threepwood finds himself stranded on Flotsam Island where the winds keep all its inhabitants prisoner. You know, the usual."
