Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 4: The Trial & Execution of Guybursh Threepwood.

The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood guides the narrative back round to the locations, personalities, and settings of the initial chapter in the sequence, whilst Guybrush Threepwood goes back to Flotsam Island to attend a hearing for his criminal activities executed whilst fleeing from the island and multiplying the voodoo pox.

The majority of the personalities are recognised from Guybrush's initial journey to the island, although a handful of novel characters have been included too, as well as a magistrate who offshoots like a barkeep and  as Stan the sales guy from the first Monkey Island sequence who currently attends as Guybrush's prosecuting attorney, totally with his truth daring coat. Guybrush has to handle a group of four partly outplayed burdens, his dizzy and foolish wife Elaine, and the wicked Marquis de Singe.

The primary courtroom environment and trial of being cross examined and rebuts separate witnesses is suggestive of the widespread Phoenix Wright sequence (on the Nintendo DS). Like that sequence, Guybrush has to carry out some investigations outside the courtroom to locate the proof that he requires, however, his strategy is more about cunningly undermining pirate law procedures than it is about discovering the case facts because Guybrush is almost responsible for a lot of the misconducts he;s blamed for. Furthermore, to complicate legal matters even more, Guybrush has to cope with Morgan LeFlay, who;s traded him out for a legendary 30 thousand silver pieces, whilst she faces Elaine head on who;s going crazy because of the pox already. The game;s climax makes Guybrush explore the island again to try to discover the true foundation of each and every one of his problems throughout the years.

As the sequence evolves, Guybrush's relationship with Morgan, LeChuck, Elaine, and the voodoo lady start to become a lot more exciting—Guybrush comes to see all of them in a different light throughout  the progression in this chapter, plus Morgan and Elaine can have a catfight at last over Guybrush. Whilst the game's hilarity is mainly on a level with small jokes and fragments of quirkiness, there are a few scenes that truly shine, like Guybrush chatting to himself in jail acting out the part of a solicitor and a user too.   Nonetheless, during a specific stage in the game, the tale has a rest from its humorous underpinnings and becomes deadly serious.

The tunes drop out too whilst the storyline twists for the sullen, and no wit or one-liners from Guybrush truly appear to be suitable to the circumstances. The choice in making the game undertake gloomier themes, within a framework of a series that;s been quite light-hearted, appears to be an effort for the sequence to "mature", which I don;t really have an opinion on as of yet.

Chapters one and two can be translated as Guybrush's individually-considered adventures loitering around a theme park alongside his brother "Chucky".  Furthermore, no one ever gets wounded in the subsequent games, even though Guybrush and his archenemy battle until they;re almost dead. Obviously, it;s not very likely that the sequence closes on a disastrous ending; it;s more likely to have a happy ever after ending, although a few of the emotional triads appear slightly incompatible with a Monkey Island game.

Even though the storyline is the primary driving force of this sequence, more so than its brain teasers, or anecdotes, to me it seems that the game has created the momentousness of the tale to interfere with the pleasure, at best a tiny amount. The episode ends on a higher level with its selected amount of drama, plus it prospers in increasing the risk factors and the amusement level during the last episode. Reflecting on the remainder of the sequence, it;s evident that the entire plot and hits of the story are vigilantly managed so that it leads up to the last chapter.

There;s a few average sized puzzle webs that the player is expected to work throughout this chapter. Guybrush is provided with the habitual group of autonomous missions two times, plus there are two scenes where he needs him to work out a puzzle that is specific to a certain place. The scenario in the courtroom is by a long way the most amusing from the game's primary sequence. Whilst the newest voodoo formula Guybrush needs to work on involves some imagination, the hope of retracing your steps throughout the wilderness to achieve it means that you spend quite a bit of time on map reading instead of solving puzzles.  Besides, a lot of the surroundings and personalities are known; the game successfully builds upon them in fascinating ways plus develops them more. This particular chapter does a lot more than the others to progress the storyline and test player's expectations regarding the personalities.

In my opinion, the Tales of Monkey Island sequence seems slightly top-heavy up to now. The core personalities have all been really nicely animated, thought-provoking, and give the game;s story line an incentive, whilst the supporting personalities are weaker in contrast.  Guybrush is equally as funny in every game, not forgetting this one, and Elaine's a little bit more so, however Flotsam Island doesn't have as much about it as Melee, Phatt, or Plunder islands did previously. Pirate hunter Morgan is the most exciting personality the game has presented, it;s through her that the best side personalities in the sequence have been loaned from previous games, like Stan the salesman. Tales of Monkey Island is successful at including a wonderful story that;s ready to finish in the seasons closing moments; hence fans might have to re assess their existing knowledge regarding Monkey Island;s traditions and encounter it from a totally fresh outlook.
