Everything that made EFMI so great on the PC arrives on the PS2 perfectly intact. The game's many puzzles are perfectly balanced---head-scratchers, but completely logical in their own Monkey Island sort of way; and the game invites creative experimentation since you can't die or make a mistake. The cartoony graphics won't win any technical awards, but they're totally appropriate for the game's goofy atmosphere. The music is great, too, and the hilarious voice acting is so awesome that other PS2 games should actually be embarrassed. The console-oriented interface seems a little chaotic at first, but it won't take long to adjust---plus, it's actually easier to walk around in this PS2 version. Anyone looking for a top-notch old-school pirate/monkey-themed comedy (you know who you are) get on board. Graphic adventures like this are a dying breed, matey, and this here's one of the sturdiest vessels to ever sail that ancient sea.
