Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge Special Edition by flotsam

GameBoomers

  • Excerpt: And so it continues, and I for one am not complaining! For those not in the know, LucasArts have recently been giving the venerable Monkey Island franchise a lick, and a spit and a great deal of polish. Basically, it’s the same game as the one that was released in 1991, but overhauled to look and sound as if it were made yesterday. There are some special features and tweaks, but what you got then is pretty much what you get now.

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: ...

Defunct Games
3 August 2010
  • Summary: Nonsensical puzzles, insane characters and pirate-themed punch lines. Yup, it's Monkey Island 2. This Special Edition XBLA release features stunning graphics, improved controls and brand new voice actors. Unfortunately it didn't fix some of the game's faults. But even with its imperfections, LeChuck's Revenge is an adventure worth going on! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Excerpt: I'll admit it – I've been spoiled lately on the iOS point & click adventure front. My most recent reviews were both outstanding games: The Secret of Monkey Island and Hector: Badge of Carnage. I've loved the Monkey Island games for as long as I can remember (which has got to be at least a month), so when I saw Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge on sale for Talk Like a Pirate Day, it was an easy purchasing decision.

  • Excerpt: Not many old things hold up in the present day. Who wishes they could bring back eight-track tapes, shoulder pads or rotary phones? (Quiet, Grandma!) Well not many games hold up either, and not many deserve--or, some might argue, need --a remake. The Monkey Island series may be one of those few franchises solid enough and loved by gamers enough to warrant this kind of treatment; at least that's what publisher LucasArts was gambling on, with the release of a special...
