Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Destructoid

  • Summary: Let’s rewind to E3 2009. I’m inside LucasArts’ conference room. I’m a few minutes early for the Star Wars: The Old Republic presentation. They have food and drink in both corners of the entrance. I’m told to help myself, but I can’t find anything that isn’t bloated with sugars and salt. I’m told to look around and watch a few games in action before the demonstration starts. I see a man dressed as a Stormtrooper leaning against a wall in the back center of the room.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition Review

  • Conclusion: If there was a PC Gaming Hall of Fame, The Secret of Monkey Island would be in it. It’s a game that many of us grew up with and to this day refer to regularly. As much as that can be said for the original classic of 1990, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is a welcome addition to XBLA that will give fans an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, bringing them back simpler days in the gaming business, when games didn’t have the multi-million dollar budgets as they do...

GAME REVIEW – The Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Alternative Magazine Online
18 July 2010
  • Conclusion: With a director’s commentary or classic mode featuring the new voicework, the replay value of this Special Edition could have been increased substantially. As it stands, it is still a great game but won’t take seasoned adventure gamers very long to complete. Still, I have heard some very exciting things about the new remake of Monkey Island 2 LeChuck’s Revenge: Special Edition, so hopefully that will address any issues mentioned here.

The Secret of Monkey Island - Special Edition

Gamereactor
20 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Once upon a time it was The Monkey Island series that set the standard for the adventure genres and its hay days in the early 90's. Lucasarts have now re-issued the game of the series with improved graphics, a new control scheme to fit the Xbox 360 controller, re-recorded music and sound effects, and voices have been added to all the characters. But first a small introduction for those who are not familiar with The Secret Monkey Island.
  • Pros: A true classic is once again accessible, the music and sound effects are stellar, nice touch to include both versions.
  • Cons: The quality of the voice acting varies, the main characters appear a bit stiff.

Monkey Island Special Edition Collection (ps3)

GBase
4 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Die Monkey Island Special Edition Collection vereint zwei der erfolgreichsten Adventures aller Zeiten in ihrer Neuauflage. Weil man zudem jederzeit zwischen dem Retroflair der 1990er-Jahre sowie der polierten Version wechseln kann, ist die Collection sowohl für unbefleckte Piraten als auch für eingefleischte Threepwood-Fans und Nostalgiker ein absoluter Pflichtkauf. Natürlich, insofern man beide Abenteuer nicht schon separat auf der Platte hat.
  • Pros: Hübsche Optik, Komfortable Bedienung, Klassische Version enthalten, Lustige Dialoge, originelle Story, Clevere Rätsel, Massenweise Extras, Nach wie vor zeitloses Point & Click-Adventure
  • Cons: Hölzerne Animationen, Nervige Reaktionsspiele
