The Special Edition of the sequel is just as good as it was for the first one. We have the same areas but completely redrawn. Attention-to-detail is just excellent: switching between the new and the old version happens on the go with just a press of a button. Here you can clearly see how similar the new graphics are to the old one in terms of design elements.
Voice acting and sound effects are, of course, very good once more and they immediately get you hooked up! One notable difference compared to the previous episode is the more-easy-to-use action selection. Also, we have now extra features such as the concept arts that are accessible via the main menu and gradually get unlocked as we make further progress in Guybrush's journey.
Additionally, developer commentaries are available at various scenes - the creators of the original game discuss the fun they had with the making of the game and the various obstacles they had to overcome due to technological constraints. Oh, and in case you missed achievements from the first now you have a dozen of them ready to be unlocked.
This is a great game just as the first one and it only brings back fond memories of my childhood. I can only recommend this to the fans of the good old point-and-click adventure games and I do look forward to playing Day of The Tentacle which is the absolute must after the Monkey Island games!
