About the Game

Back by popular demand, The Secret of Monkey Island™: Special Edition faithfully re-imagines the internationally-acclaimed classic game (originally released in 1990) for original and new audiences alike. The development team at LucasArts is bringing the game into the modern era with an all new re-imagined contemporary art style, a re-mastered musical score, full voiceover, and an in-depth hint system to help players through the game’s side-splitting puzzles. Purists will also delight in the ability to seamlessly switch between the updated hand-drawn re-imagining and the original classic version.
The game's twisty plot leads our naive hero on a hilarious, swash-buckling search for the fabled secret of Monkey Island. Tales of pirate wealth lure him to the port of Mêlée with high hopes, no money, and insatiable curiosity. If clever enough, he will win the confidence of Mêlée's pirates and find himself blown by the winds of fate toward the terrifying and legendary Monkey Island -- an adventure that would chill the bones of even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer.

It's Monkey Island. There's no way this could not be good. The ability to switch back and forth between the classic and re-done graphics is a nice touch as well, though I must say I don't really enjoy the art style of the new graphics. The voice acting, using the Curse of Monkey Island actors for the characters that are shared, is superb though and makes it worth sticking around in the revamped graphics mode.

If you like Monkey Island... buy this remake.
You can play like old times or with the new point & click version, which is fine.

YES! The day I got this game as a kid I was so excited and having this new version allowed me to experience that all over again! Some parts have to be played in the orginal format to retain their charm, such as seeing the inside of the monkey head for the first time. All in all this is a great remake and voiced wonderfully by Dominic M. again! I hope these versions allowed more people to add these great games to their library and enjoy them all over again.
