Matty7, Ciao
19 August 2001
  • Excerpt: "...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 separate CD’s, now that is great, isn’t it. *The two CD’s are Maniac Monkey, featuring MI1, MI2 and a demo of 3 and The Monkey Island Bounty Pack, ...

  • Excerpt: "...I am totally fond of Monkey Island 2. This game is a combination of adventure and fun. The story is that you are a little pirate, who must kill again The Chuck (a bad pirate this time!). But the poor little pireate will face a lot of difficulties, and more particularly with his girlfriend. Therefore, you will have to achieve a wide range of actions in order to kill the Bad pirate and to conquest the heart of your beautiful girlfriend. The scenario ...

Not quite as good as the original, but very close

Defiler, Ciao
26 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...the sequel to the original Monkey Island game, you resume the role of Guybrush Threepwood the "mighty pirate". In this game he is on the quest for the lengendary treasure of the Big Whoop, the game takes place among a larger number of islands than the original which has both advantages and disadvantages (you get a more distinct feel to each location but lose some of the easy accesability I found being located mainly in one area). At the start of the ...
  • 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
7 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "...the best game in the Monkey Island series. I think it is on a par with The Secret Of Monkey Island. We meet Guybrush again as he tells his stories (wildly exagerated) round a fire. As he prepares to go and his new found wealth he is mugged by the scourge of Scabb island, Largo Legrande. Unfortunately if he is to get off the island he needs money, and he needs it fast... The plot is more exciting than in MI1 and the style is more cartoony. I ...
  • Pros: Pirates

The Best Just Got Better

CaptainDi..., Ciao
26 December 2000
  • Excerpt: "Monkey Island 2 has been around for a while now but you might be able to get hold of it in a compilation called "The Monkey Island Bounty Pack" which contains the first 3 Monkey Island games. If you haven't seen them before and you like adventure games don't have any hesitation at all over buying this! Monkey Island, in case you've been living on Jupiter for the last decade, centres around a pirate wannabe called Guybush Threepwood and his efforts ...
  • Pros: Great gameplay, tough puzzles
  • Cons: Limited graphics, no sound (?  -  just a problem with my version?? !   -  it is OF COURSE an orignal not a pirate so I assume not  -  ?)

Monkey Island Trilogy

Artanis, Ciao
20 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "...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. In this game you have two choices. You can have the easy version, which is easier or the hard version which has more puzzels in and is more thrilling. I would choose the hard version ...

An amazing game

edward_tc..., Ciao
13 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "Monkey Island 2 is possibly the second best adventure game I have ever played, after monkey island 1. It is interesting while still being absolutely hilarious. You are a pirate who visits many different islands and meets many different people solving many different puzzles. This game is suitable for all ages and I have enjoyed playing it over and over again. If you are looking for a good adventure game then this is the one for you. The graphics aren’t ...

Best value for money game

student, Ciao
12 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "Monkey Island 2 is definetly one of the best games I have ever purchased. Having completed the first Monkey Island game after a number of sleepness nights trying to work out the brilliant puzzles, I was eager to find an equal or better challenge to quench my newly found thirst for adventure games. The second adventure presents even more puzzles than the first, and captures the wit and atmosphere that made the first game such a success. Plotwise, ...

Das ist wirklich LeChucks Bart. Und er lebt noch!

  • Summary: Hallo liebe Freunde des gepflegten Nonsens. Willkommen bei der Neuauflage von "Monkey Island 2". Ganz klar, dass mir als Fan der zweite Teil der Neuauflage nicht entgehen durfte. Und ebenso klar war, dass ich euch mit einem weiteren Bericht über einen absoluten Klassiker quälen werde. Vorgeschichte Guybrush Threepwood kommt als junger Piratenanwärter auf die Insel Melée Island. Bevor er Pirat werden kann, muss er das Piratenhandwerk erlernen und drei Prüfungen bestehen.
  • Pros: Geniale Neuauflage eines perfekten Adventures
  • Cons: Dieses Feld sollte bei "Monkey Island" einfach nicht angezeigt werden !  !  !
