Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

True achievements
13 March 2014
  • Conclusion: As with all XBLA games, there's a dozen of them. All of which can easily be unlocked within a single playthrough. The flaws aside, it still is LeChuck's Revenge and as a result is still a fantastic game. And right now I will go and play it again - with the developer's commentary!

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.

Game Debate
26 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Monkey Island games aren’t really known for their complex, twisting plots. Essentially, what you expect is a piratical romp around some strangely-named islands, swashing your buckle with all manner of odd characters, and a scattering of anachronisms and pop-culture references to keep you smiling.
  • Pros: Lively, Good story, Great characters
  • Cons: Similar to ep. 1, Poor graphics

VGChartz
25 August 2009
  • Excerpt: With the recent resurgence of the point-and-click adventure genre, one classic series remained conspicuously absent for quite some time. And so, it was to great cheer that TellTale Games announced their revival of the Monkey Island series via chapter-based episodic downloads.
