Informace o hře

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.

Good reboot.

Probably worth playing mostly for veterans only, though. You can toggle between the updated and the original DOS graphics.

Unfortunately it seems that you can't have the voices AND play on the DOS graphics at the same time. So I played on the modern graphics which weren't too shabby. The voices really help give the game life.

I use the lexicon from this game (and the 2nd) to test someone if they are cool or are an undercover cop.

Just finished this game (With slight abuse of the hint system) - It's a fantastic remaster of the original!

The ability to press F10 at ANY time to seamlessly revert to the original graphics / UI and back (Even mid conversation / cutscene) make this highly recommended as it's almost 2 games in 1 :)

LeChuck is voiced by Earl Boen. Sometimes you listen to what he's saying, and other times you envision yourself starting a new World of Warcraft character.

My second favourite point-and-click adventure game of all time. I love it; the humour, the mystery, the adventure... Amazing game.

One of the most fun and challenging games of my childhood. Was beautifully remastered, and the option of going back and forth between original and new graphics is good for nostaglia. The voice acting is hilarious! The puzzles are not too bad, only needed to google a walk through twice. Whilst like all puzzle games there are issues around re-playability this is a great trip down memory lane.

Probably one of the best "remastered" game titles to appear recently; it pays homage to the original without destroying it. I loved the ability to toggle between the new/old graphics, and the addition of voice actors was very well-done.

It's an old game with gameplay that has aged surprisingly well. It's clever, self-aware, and, more than anything, funny.

Asi takhle: Která jiná hra se může pyšnit titulem "Nejlepší adventura všech dob!"? Žádná a Special Edition přináší legendu zahalenou do nového grafického kabátu. Netřeba však plakat nad unikátní modro-modrou grafikou původní hry, protože lze kdykoliv přepnout mezi novou a starou verzí.

Pokud jste The Secret Of Monkey Island už kdysi dohráli, připravte se na cca 6 hodin vzpomínek a zábavy. Asi tolik vám potrvá hru dohrát, pokud si ještě něco pamatujete.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is a remake of the popular Lucas Art point and click adventure game which was released back in 1990. The remake was released in mid-2009 on PC, Mac, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade. The game is set in the Caribbean at the time of pirates. You play as Guy Threepwood - a guy who dreams of becoming a pirate.

This game is set in a third person perspective point and click style gameplay. You are able to explore around the world and interact with objects in a couple of different ways, such as inspecting them, picking them up, pushing or pulling for example, whilst you are also able to interact with other NPCs in the game through multiple dialogue options. The game has no death scenes in it for your character; game play is heavily focused on puzzles and exploring. The puzzles in The Secret of Monkey Island are in adventure style; and make no sense what so ever until you finally figure it out, then it becomes clear as day, but all of the puzzles are fun to take part in. Personally my favourite would be the pirate insulting duels. This was the first game in a long while that actually had me taking notes on a pen and paper! None of the puzzles are really time based, so you can spend as much time as you want on them without being penalized.

What I really liked about The Secret of Monkey Island is that you can either play the game in the remastered settings with the higher quality art style, or you can actually play it in the classic pixel style that the original game was based on, you can do this on a scene by scene basis too. The art style of the remastered edition looks really good though, lots of vibrant colours and some really nice looking background environments.

As this was my first experience with The Secret of Monkey Island I wasn't sure what to expect from it story wise, but I was pleasantly surprised when there is a whole load of humour added into the plot. Every single character I ran into had an extremely memorable persona. I don't want to spoil any of the story since the game is essentially the story, but it is captivating and interesting right until the end.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is completely voice acted, and done really well. Even the none main characters are voice acted, such as bar dwellers and town folk which was a nice touch, much of the sound track is also the same, just remastered to a higher quality.

This is another game that completely baffled me at parts, whether it be on some of the puzzles or just knowing where to go next to progress the story; which resulted in me looking up the guide, to be honest I am not sure how you are supposed to figure some of it but it has been done by plenty of others! I was really immersed in the story of the game and didn't want to lose too much time faffing around with not knowing where to go so I was happy to look up the answers this time.

Each of the game's scenes has plenty of objects that you can interact with, most will end up with Guy giving some sort of witty remark towards them, and there are also lots of NPCs which you can talk with to get more out of the plot and some of the side stories going off in the game too.

The Secret of Monkey Island took me ten hours to complete; this was with the aid of a guide at parts, and following up all dialog options with NPCs to get the most out of the lore; I thought this was a pretty good length for the game considering I actually thought it would be a lot shorter given my past experience of point and click games. Given that the story is linear and that there is only one ending to the game, there is no reason to replay it through a second time though.

Given that this is a remastered edition of the game, it works fine on the newer operating systems, and I was able to play at 4K resolutions perfectly fine. I encountered minor problems with the controls in the game, and the scroll wheel functionality when choosing which action to take on objects stopping randomly - but this was easily worked around by using the keyboard shortcuts. An odd issue which has been reported is that for some reason the game refuses to run when being installed on a 3 TB hard drive, so that may be something to consider if you are purchasing it and you only have a 3 TB drive.

The Secret of Monkey Island is often referred to as the pinnacle of point and click adventure games, and this series is what spawned many more of the greats we have today, and rightly so. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my time playing this game, and the story is absolutely brilliant and I cannot wait to get stuck into the rest of the series. The low price of £6, 99 on Steam makes The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition a serious contender for a must play title.
