Best Adventure

An adventure game must be extremely detailed, though not as finely as an RPG. Adventure games focus around a single character, who is either the player directly, or a character the player directly controls. In either case, the players character must be full of character, personality, and mystique. The game centralizes around a mystery, and usually contains many puzzles that must be solved in order to continue. Puzzles, being the primary interactive portion of the game aside from exploring, is usually what makes an adventure great, or just a great attempt.

Escape from Monkey Island

Escape from Monkey Island is, paws down, the best adventure game of the season. Following as the forth in a series of games that has entertained its audience since the beginning. Following the unlikely hero, Guybrush Threepwood, a sort of "Pink Panther" type character prone to disaster, Escape from Monkey Island has a unique brand of humor, ranging from puns to insults, that makes it truly unique. But the game doesn't just stop at being high quality and funny, the puzzles are just right. They're not too complicated, not too simple. Don't be fooled by the cartoon appearance, this game is a fun break both for casual gamers, and Quake world champions.
