Summary: What an enthralling game. I played the special edition first and now I am nearly through the Monkey Island 2 which is included on the disc. I bought the game on the say so and ratings of previous players and have enjoyed playing it from the word go. You journey from island to island and the solving of the puzzles are great. Buy it and see for yourselves.
Summary: i remember playing monkey island 1 & 2 on the pc years ago, and they're just as delightful now. their light humour and charm is still fresh, and the new new artwork adds a pretty veneer to what are fine games
Summary: This has to be one of the best games I've ever played. 'Monkey Island' is one of those feel good games that you can't stop playing until you've completed it. It has everything from charming, witty and loveable characters, beautiful 2D style graphics and a fantastic storyline to match. A prime example of a 5 star game in my opinion.
Summary: If, like me, you loved this game when it was originally released then you won't be disappointed with the PS3 version. It's been tidied up graphics wise, but hasn't lost any of the charm/humour. I was worried it wouldn't do the original justice, but I couldn't have been more wrong.
Summary: Played these monkey island games in my youth for hours and loved them, This version brings the game up to date with nice cartoon like graphics without changing the gameplay. This game is probably not for everyone, but if you like fun puzzle like games or played the original you will love this. Also loved the fact by pressing the 'select' button it instantly changes the game back to the original graphics, great touch to remind you of the originl classic.
Summary: I owned this game in it's origional guise - blocky graphics and text instead of sound which they have included. Have been waiting some 20 years to play again and when I saw it was out for PS3 I simply couldn't resist. They have re-drawn the game to make it look better for the modern generation. The gameplay itself is exactly the same as the old. Great humour and example of play-ability.
Excerpt: "...that don’t know already, the Monkey Island games were a series of swashbuckling adventure games made by those crazy chaps over at Lucas Arts. You play a Guybrush Threepwood , “mighty pirate”. A thoroughly colourful character who is plagued by his arch nemesis “Lechuck”. Basically you have to find your way around the virtual world, talking to people, acquiring items and solving puzzles. It’s an old school adventure game. Nice and simple and lots of ...
Summary: Die Monkey Island Adventure-Spiele-Serie gehört für mich zu den lustigsten, detailverliebtesten und besten aller Zeiten, doch vor allem weckt sie schöne Erinnerungen an meine Kindheit - Stunden, die man vor einem wirklich massiven Bildschirm und damit verbrachte auf eine beeindruckend, pixelige Welt hinter einer Glassscheibe zu schauen. Amiga Nostalgie pur!
