Monkey Island 2 Special Edition Review

19 July 2010
  • 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...

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition - LeChuck's Revenge

GamersPlus
23 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Monkey Island 2 wird für mich immer eines der besten Adventures aller Zeiten sein, das Jahr für Jahr aus der Schublade gekramt und durchgespielt wird. Einen persönlichen Hit möglichst objektiv zu bewerten, ist eine Herausforderung; werfen wir daher einfach einen Blick auf die reinen Fakten: Die Special Edition bringt Features mit sich, die wir von heutigen Spielen erwarten (moderne Grafik, Sprachausgabe, Hotspotanzeige), ist in Sachen Story und Puzzledesign aber noch...
  • Pros: gründlich aufpoliert, Audio-Kommentar, Retro-Modus, das gute, alte Monkey Island 2 ...
  • Cons: ... ohne Light-Modus, gestrichenes Intro

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

InsideGamer
28 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Monkey Island 2 staat bekend als een van de beste point-and-click-avonturen van LucasArts en na twintig jaar staat het spel nog fier overeind. Het spel zit vol met puzzels waarvan de logica je soms even zal ontgaan, humor, sarcasme en een cast van opmerkelijke figuren. Aan de andere kant zul je misschien niet zoveel hebben met het constant praten met mensen en het tot in de oneindigheid klikken op alle objecten die je in je scherm ziet.
  • Pros: Humor en sarcasme van topniveau, Piraten!
  • Cons: Gameplay kan wat herhalend overkomen
