  • Summary: This special edition of Monkey Island 2 is not as well polished as the first attempt and MI2 always had a bit of a lacklustre ending, but once again, another classic adventure game is reborn!

A real myth

  • Pros: fun !  !  !  !  !  !  !  !  !
  • Cons: no

Not quite as good as the original, but very close

Defiler, Ciao
26 April 2001
  • 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

More madcap action from Guybrush and co.

PTDC, Ciao

  • 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.
  • Pros: Pirates
  • Cons: near grog

Funky

  • Pros: MusIc, story
  • Cons: Damn hard !

Monkey Island 2 - Better than 1st

recieve3a..., Ciao
5 November 2000
  • 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 .

Monkey Island Trilogy

Artanis, Ciao
20 August 2000
  • 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.

Monkey Island Top Sequel

becky_uk, Ciao
22 July 2000
  • 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.
