IMG Reviews Escape from Monkey Island
10:15 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

As reports of arriving preorders begin to populate our forums, IMG has posted our review of the much-anticiapted game, Escape from Monkey Island. This fourth title in the humorous adventure series (only three of which have been brought to the Mac) hails the triumphant return of LucasArts to the platform. We can thank Aspyr Media for publishing the game, and Jesse Spears and the rest of Westlake Interactive for the porting work. Here's a clip from the review to give you a taste:

Thanks to the use of OpenGL candles and campfires cast accurate light & shadows on 3D objects, thus creating the perfect mood for any setting. Color is as also used quite well in Escape from Monkey Island™. Bustling towns are brightly colored and filled with decorative statues & fountains with clear blue water, while areas such as the Mists O’ Time Marsh are dark & brooding. The most unsettlingly majestic area in this visually stunning game is the dreaded Monkey Island™. There’s something upsetting about thousands of monkeys plotting & scheming in an organized society… Anywho, enough about my odd monkey paranoia.
Head over now for the rest of the word on the game. If you're a LucasArts fan, we're sure you have already received your preorder. If not, head to Aspyr's site now to get your copy now.
