Excerpt: Arrr me maties welcome to the second Monkey Island game in the series, featuring even more swash buckling adventure, puzzles, grog and offcourse the beautiful Elaine. Ok enough of the pirate talk, I loved this game, when I first purchased this it came with disks but know you can buy it on two...
Pros: Great Hummor, Its a 2D game, Well known game
Excerpt: Through this article, I would like to deal with one of my favourite Game on PC. Admittedly, this adventure game is not so young (it has been created about 8 years ago), and I have to recognise that graphics could seem a little out of date.
Excerpt: A week or two ago I was looking through the shelves of my old computer games (the ones that came on disks rather than CD-ROM when released) and came across the box of this game with a "Just Released" sticker on it, it seemed very hard to remember when this game was actually new.
Pros: Retains the humour, story, music and overall gameplay that made the first monkey island such a classic
Cons: Poor ending, the 2 difficulties don't really work well as one seems just "too" easy
Excerpt: This is one of the zaniest games I have ever played. The weird puzzles and cartoony graphics never fail to bring a smile to my face. MI2 is considered by many to be the best game in the Monkey Island series. I think it is on a par with The Secret Of Monkey Island.
Excerpt: My first impression after loading MI-2: Damn, that music's funky. No, really! After vaporising the Ghost Pirate LeChuck in MI-1, Guybrush Threepwood is now after the fabled treasure of Big Whoop.
Excerpt: Guybrush Threepwood is back, and so are many of the other characters from the first game. Stan is now selling coffins and Woodoo-mama provides dolls for everyone to play with. LeChuck is also back, now in a cool 3/4 invisible mode, and he's quite pissed with Guybush (We wonder why, don't we).
Pros: Better than 1, will keep you playing
Cons: Frustating at times, wont bother to play after completing it .
Excerpt: The return of Le chuck is the 2 installation of the Monkey Island Trilogy. It still follows the story of the man Guybrush Threepwood. Guybrush is now around 40 and is a professional pirate. The game is even more complex and the graphics are slitly better but still bad, as its was made for the Amiga.
Excerpt: The sequel to the first Monkey Island adventure starring Guybrush Threepwood is as excellent as the first. These games may be fairly old (released on the Amiga) but they can be bought on PC and are definitely worth it.
