Monkey Kombat Infamy 02 Jul, 2002, 09:33 / 6 comments

It's not every day you see a review of Jedi Outcast take a swing at Escape From Monkey Island. In ECSMag's assessment of Jedi Outcast, they stated the following:
Of late, [LucasArts] has stumbled with its experiments in adapting properties (like the Star Wars universe) to various genres. Even the most recent Monkey Island game made less of a splash, in part hampered by the replacement of insult swordfighting with Monkey Kombat.
By the way, they gave Jedi Outcast 8 out of 10 keys, whatever that means.

    "My biggest gripe? LucasArts, I had some kick-ass battles. Why not give me an option to record them? I?m enough of a geek that I?d play them back later."

    Ok. That is retarded. He claims to be a geek, yet doesn't make the connection that the game is powered by the QuakeIII engine. The magic of the console allows you to do crazy things like that. Unless Raven went out of their way to cut that out. (Yeah, that is another thing, he bitches at LEC and not Raven at all...)

    *sigh*

    I remember being like, I don't really have to do this, do I. This is a joke right? The one joke I did not get in an LEC game.
