Combining fun graphics with excellent dialog and all the mind melting puzzles one cares to shake a stick at. The newest entry into the Monkey Island series, Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, is adventure gaming at its best. This game brings us back to the classic roots of adventure games and will keep you playing until the very end. Since this is the first entry it will be hard not to crave more when you are finished."
