Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge Review

2 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Monkey Island 2 is one of the greatest games of all time: if there were a canon for video games, it would definitely be in it. Day of the Tentacle, Broken Sword and Grim Fandango might have all come out afterwards, but Monkey Island 2 is probably most people's - especially those who were actively playing them at the time - last great adventure game.

LeChuck's Revenge + Guybrush's Return = Player's Delight.

6 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Improved graphics, improved controls and the game itself is often argued to be the better of the two. This needs to be in your collection (not just in the vain hope that they’ll port Day of the Tentacle and Sam and Max: Hit the Road )

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

Digital Chumps
13 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The improved controls (which are a bit tough to get use to) combined with fantastic visuals and updated presentation produces a revamped, better version of a classic tale. If you enjoyed the old Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, or you're looking for a tough as nails adventure, then look no further than Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge. LucasArts did a fantastic job on bringing a classic back to life.

  • Summary: As Guybrush Threepwood celebrates the 20th anniversary of his arrival on the adventure game scene, the Monkey Island series continues to enjoy a renaissance with the release of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge. Like its revamped predecessor, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition , this game takes a classic point-and-click adventure and spruces it up for the modern era.
  • Pros: Entertaining characters and quirky humor, Wacky puzzles with clever solutions, Lively new visuals and voice acting, Better controls and gameplay options
  • Cons: Some puzzles require finicky timing

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge – The PS3 Attitude Review

PS3 Attitude
2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: LucasArts were hinting that we might see more Monkey Island stuff coming our way should these games turn out well. We don’t know if it would be a new games altogether or special editions for Curse of Monkey Island and the disappointing Escape from Monkey Island. Either way, we hope people go out and buy these games because the more piratical adventures we have on the PlayStation Store the better.

Monkey Island 2 S.E.

30 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Die Special Edition des ersten Monkey Island hat im letzten Jahr eine Traumwertung nach der anderen abgestaubt und mit der Adventure-Konkurrenz den Boden aufgewischt – trotz seines beträchtlichen Alters. Schafft es auch die Neuauflage des zweiten Teils, ein fast zwanzig Jahre altes Spiel auf den Adventure-Thron zu hieven?

Monkey Island 2: SE

20 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Ahoi, ihr übelriechenden, grog-gurgelnden Bastarde! Zeit den Papagei zu entstauben und die Säbel zu wetzen. Denn endlich ist » Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge « als Download auf dem Playstation Network eingelaufen. Und das punktet, wie vorher bereits » The Secret of Monkey Island « mit vielen überarbeiteten Details: allen voran frische, handgemalte Grafiken; alles wunderhübsch, bis auf einige gelegentlich ruckelnde Animationen.
