Hey! Is this game worth getting?
Unluckly, I'm only fifteen so I've never played Monkey Island.
Nowadays I'm very interested to these games, I really want summer sales to get these two special edition!

Do you reccomend them to me, counting I really like Sam and Max Telltale Series (just a point of reference for adventures I like)? I'm really curious to play these games, but I don't want to fall in a boring adventure!

Thanks all of you that will answer! ;D

(I bought it. It's awesome :D)

Well, I'm biased seeing as how Curse of Monkey Island is my absolute favourite game (and the others follow shortly behind), but if you like Sam & Max, then yes, I'd guess that you would probably enjoy the humour and the puzzles of the Monkey Island games. I especially recommend the first three.

Uhm... but unluckly the third isn't on steam.
I'd like to play it but I don't know where to buy it.. 'cause also phisically here in Italy they don't sell it anymore :(

Yeah, Curse isn't exactly easy to find. I don't think it can be legally downloaded anywhere, you can only buy CDs. Your best bet is probably ebay, just make sure the seller is trustworthy etc: search for Curse of Monkey Island on ebay[].

The Secret of Monkey Island was the first PC game I ever played and is what I attribute my love of gaming to.

Well, the first game I've played is Quake III Arena. lol

This game is very much worth getting. Nearly one of the funniest games I've played in my 31 years of life.

One of the best series in from the old Lucas Arts games.

You should most likely love the Monkey Island games. The dialogs are really funny, the story and the enigmas are pretty solid. Even the "Tales of Monkey Island" reboot were able to revive memories of the classics, so if there is a Summer Sale on a Monkey Island pack (which I hope happens soon) you should not hesitate!

I've already got them, don't worry! :)
I'm playing it these days but... damn. It's VERY hard!

I've played 3 hours and I've finished just ONE of the three trials!

Post if you need help with the puzzles! I'll try to give hints without giving away the solution.

Oh thanks!
Well, I'm stuck when I should fight the Master Sword.
Against the base taunts is ok, but when she use her personal taunts 9/10 times I fail.
