Rating Summary

This is an adventure game in which players follow the exploits of the pirate Guybrush Threepwood as he explores Flotsam Island and attempts to rescue his wife. The majority of gameplay involves interacting with pirates, exploring ships and islands, and following the irreverent storyline. Players complete a series of quests that are often accompanied by humorous antics and dialogue: the central character plants a "cartoony" bomb in a pair of underwear; a man says he has "gluteal acne"; a man accidentally punches himself and others; a character is accused of having "broken wind." One quest involves meeting a "Voodoo Lady" who has exaggerated-sized, jiggling breasts and who talks about her former boyfriend (e.g., "He fell in love with my voodoo charms and my supple-"). There are bottles labeled "grog" throughout a pirate ship, and grog is also referenced in conversation (e.g., "…light grog: it's just like real grog except without the taste, calories, or debilitating blackouts"). The dialogue also contains the French expletive "sacre merde " and the expression "p.o'd."
