Riguardo questo gioco

Torna a furor di popolo The Secret of Monkey Island™: Special Edition ovvero la fedele rivisitazione di un classico acclamato a livello internazionale. La versione originale uscì nel 1990. Questa nuova versione si dirige sia a coloro che non vi hanno mai giocato che agli affezionati fan della prima versione. L'equipe di programmatori della LucasArts trasporta il gioco nell'era moderna con tutto ciò che ne consegue: stile artistico, colonne sonore rimasterizzate, doppiaggio, e un sistema d'aiuto particolareggiato che guiderà i giocatori lungo il gioco e i suoi divertentissimi rompicapi. Anche i puristi, ovvero i fedeli alla vecchia versione, sono stati accontentati: esiste infatti una funzione che permette la transizione scorrevole tra la versione nuova, ridisegnata a mano, e quella classica.

La trama del gioco è allegramente contorta e il nostro ingenuo eroe si imbatte nella ricerca spasmodica del fiabesco segreto di Monkey Island. Le leggende e le dicerie sulla presunta ricchezza dei pirati lo portano a Mêlée carico di speranze, senza soldi e divorato da un'insaziabile curiosità. Se si mostrerà sufficientemente abile, si guadagnerà la fiducia dei pirati di Mêlée e quando i venti del destino soffieranno, sarà condotto verso la terrificante e leggendaria Monkey Island -- un'avventura che farebbe rabbrividire persino il più sanguinario dei bucanieri.

Not a big fan of this. I myself always prefered Sierra Games.

But, it's definately worth completing. The jokes are great, the story is nice. This edition is probably the best one we'll get!
Grab the complete edition packed with the second part. You won't regret it.

Un intramontabile capolavoro! la nuova veste grafica lo rende ancor più appetitoso e per i nostalgici è prevista la possibilità di cambiare la visuale con F10 ripristinando l'originale.
Umorismo eccezionale per un gioco che ha fatto la storia delle avventure punta & clicca.
Durata che si attesta sulle 5 ore di puro divertimento.
PS. premendo H durante il gioco si possono avere dei consigli su come procedere; inizialmente vaghi, possono diventare sempre più specifici sull'indicarvi la vostra prossima mossa ... non abusatene o vi rovinerete il divertimento di scoprire ogni idiozia per conto vostro ;)

Ricordo che installai Steam per comprare questo gioco, quindi essendo ufficialmente il primo acquisto, merita la mia prima recensione (anche se nel frattempo l'ho già finito altre due volte)

The new graphics are quite bad. It doesn't bother me so much if I switch back to the classic graphics with F10, and then switch to the new graphics again, as the old graphics had a cool feel to it. However, it might just be me, but I don't know how to pick stuff up for example with the new graphics. 'Spoiler'. An example, a rubber chicken is on a table, and with the new graphics I can't figure out how to pick it up. I might have messed some instructions on how pick up objects, etc, with the new graphics, but the old graphics were a ton easier, as there are constant dialogue boxes to choose from depending on the action.

A bug seems to be that it's crash prone, especially in the old graphics version.

It's said to be a good game by a lot of people, so I'll give it a go, but I'm not overly impressed at the moment.

It's Monkey Island, what more is there to say? I preferred the original graphics but it's nice to see a Steam edition of this. Now they just need to start selling fine leather jackets from the Steam Store...

A pretty remake of an older game. Plays pretty well, but the controls are not as good as the second installment's. Some of the puzzles are a bit of a pain to figure out, and may require using a guide to complete. The voice acting is decent for the most part, with some characters sounding better than others. The ending is a bit underwhelming, but the story is pretty funny and has a decent plot.

Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is a 2009 remake of old classic DOS point'n'click adventure title, that came out back in 1990. This version actually allows switching between original and remake on-the-fly. If you just want to play original, you can do it pretty much from beggining to the end, with almost no changes!

Monkey Island itself is a classic LucasArts adventure game. It's well remembered for it's pirate (including voodoo) setting and humor, having world to expore and having puzzles to break head against, guessing what they want player to do. By that point, adventures games already had point'n'click setting in place, just clicking on needed verb and using it on object. Just clicking on object itself always uses the most logical verb (and often the only one possible), so you may just forget of this aspect.
The game is divided into three chapters, the first one being the biggest and most open one, travelling on Melee Island, talking around and trying to complete three main objectives in order to become pirate, while starting to figure out what Le Chuck has to do in this game. Second chapter has you on another island, bigger in space, but less in NPCs, just having this funnily annoying slightly crazed inhabitant of island dropping in and out. Final chapter, "Kicks Butt", kicks some serious butts. Linear, short, but bumps you up and is very worthy compared to Adventure games.
Now, being classic adventure game, it's more concentrated on non-stop solving of 'puzzles' and interaction, with the only action sequences being sword fighting. Well, not exactly what you think. INSULT sword fighting, used only in chapter 1 anyway. Worth noting, you have to beat such "battles" by choosing correct reply to insults, while later throwing your own. Heck, most of them is spend on "farming" new insult and replies, by losing, to collect them all and beat the Swordmaster.

Otherwise, standart classic LucasArts. Which means few things. First, there is no way to die or get stuck in dead end in this game, so you can do stupid things all the way you want, unlike classic Sierra. Second, you can choose few options in conversation, but none changes the plot or progression - it's either a puzzle by itself or "choose your own joke to make". (You can even choose "what we have learned" reply in the end of the game!). Third, the puzzles are either easy and logical or they are hard and make no common sense. Quite a common thing in classic adventure games, doing something unexpect for goals that plotwise aren't the ones you would want to do, Like, suddenly finding out that you have and actually can 'combine' items in your inventory, for single puzzle, to rescue some shady figure who probably wouldn't be much of good if freed.

Special Edition keeps all of those and provides an upgrade to both graphics and sound, while messing around controls. Hands down, music is superior to soundblaster and art has more resolution than what original offered. But the gap is too big and those who grew with original may be put off. Difference between pixels-art that leaves something for imagination and defined art, you see. Where main character, Guybrush, was a normal guy in black and white in original, with who most people could reliate, becomes character in it's own with that hair. And sure thing, close-ups aren't drawn in same realistical way. But otherwise, it's fancy in it's own!
It also added voice acting to it, but because of limitation of original engine, it has awkward pause between each line, putting some players off. And once again, "it's not the way we imagined it when we played original".

And you can switch between original and remake on the fly, with press of single button, no loading required! Nice! Though, you can notice that animation in remake somehow feels to follow animation of original closely, having same amount of animation frames, not always having art to make same sense in these cases.

Actually, it switches not only visual and audio, but interface too. And it's another reason to stay on original, being made with in way to allow it to be controlled by gamepads on consoles as well. It tries to be as good as in modern point'n'clicks, but clumpsier. Much. Main fault comes from technical aspect, actually, where for some reason sometimes it playes like the actual cursor is placed lower/higher than it's actually shown.
And sure thing, to keep modern players sane, it incorporated hints system, when on the magical press of button, you get a hint hint hint. Good joy, much needed. Not always as straight as you would want it to be though, but anything helps.

Thus, nice remake of classic adventure game, which most recommend to play at least once, having humor, story and some puzzles that make no sense, this fault of adventure games eased up with hints. Not too long either and with charm.

I love this game.

Monkey Island is my old favourite game and I 90% recommend it, the remaining 10% leaning towards the fact that if you don't enjoy point and click puzzle/adventure games this is NOT for you.

This game has incredible characters, amazing smart puzzles, incredible adventures and an eerie feeling throughout the whole game (I better not forget the monkey's! They're awesome!)

So the story of this game (Which is very well written) is that you are Guybrush Threepwood, a wannabe pirate. You must go on three trials to become a true pirate, once LeChuck, the evil ghost captain, hear's that Guybrush is in town and up to no good (Well, no good for him) he attempts to capture him, torture him and kill him. He also want's to marry SPOILERS Guybrush's girlfriend, Elaine.

It's very difficult to find a flaw with this game, it seems almost perfect. The only problem is that sometimes there's no music which can be just eerie and just doesn't feel nice, it's a very scary game in that sense.

The other thing is some puzzles are too hard and keep you trapped on them for sometimes weeks, but you could use the hint system to help you which is a helpful add on.

The voice acting is pretty good in my opinion and so is the music (If it's even there) and the sound effects, although scary they're superbly atmospheric and you won't get tired of them.

Another thing you won't get tired of is the adventure: It seemingly never becomes boring, it always feels interesting and enjoyable.

And there are a HUGE amount of locations and now for my favourite part of the whole game... The sword fighting. But let me keep that a surprise. Let me just say, it's not sword fighting like how you'd imagine it.

The graphics are good too, especially with the special edition's effect.

And the final verdict for The Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition is the highest verdict so far... A 9.5/10. The few flaws JUST deprive it of that beautiful and unachieved 10/10 but it's still an amazing game and it will forever hold a piece in my heart.

Until the next review! :)

Good game overall. Definitely worth it if your into puzzle adventure games. It provides a lot of head scratching puzzles with a silly storyline and lots of jokes. The most annoying issue I had was selecting the actions on items. Really? You couldn't make it easier? It has a shallow storyline that doesn't really leave you with a sense of accomplishment when the game ends.

Pros:
- Good production value
- Funny storyline
- Comedic voice acting

Cons:
- Too short
- The mechanics for applying actions with items are too cumbersome.
- Shallow storyline

Very very misleading...
If you are italian, do not believe (as written in the card) that the voices of the game are in Italian, there are only subs in ITA
I have already asked for a compensation for this deception

ITA:
Le voci NON sono in italiano! Non ci cascate ci sono solo i sottotitoli!!! La scheda è ingannevole!

Could so much awesome really be in one game.?! A story about mystery (Monkey island), ambition (To become a pirate), love (True love lasting over a series of 5 games), betrayal (Carla and Otis), epic humour (A red herring) and the start of the most awesome of it all….insult sword fighting! Without a doubt the best Adventure series out there, and this is where is starts.
How appropriate, you fight like a cow!
