Over dit spel

Wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood, and the now zombie pirate LeChuck, return in what has long been considered one of the greatest LucasArts adventure games of all time.

Expanding on the highly successful The Secret of Monkey Island™: Special Edition in just about every way, fans will now experience new unique special edition features and interact with the world of Monkey Island like never before.

Having seemingly defeated the evil ghost pirate LeChuck in his first adventure, Guybrush Threepwood sets his sights on the legendary treasure of Big Whoop. But wait, LeChuck is now back in zombie form and he's out for revenge. Guybrush will have to use his wits, his humor and his insatiable desire for adventure to defeat his nemesis once and for all and truly prove himself the greatest pirate in the Caribbean. Voodoo dolls, spitting contests and amusement parks are just some of the challenges Guybrush must overcome as he meets old friends, fights new enemies and uses every ounce of his mojo to overcome the wrath of LeChuck’s revenge.

Rarely does a sequel capture essence of the original so well. In Monkey Island 2 SE, you will have more of everything! More islands to explore, more bizarro characters, whacky plots & harder puzzles! I still remember all those years ago getting this on 11 floppy disks back on the Amiga & how much longer it took to complete than the original just a year or so before!

Guybrush Threepwood returns, still regurgitating the story (to those that will listen) of how he vanquished LeChuck. This is old news now, so Guybrush sets out for more fame & fortune to a new island, and a new adventure .. the hunt for the Big Whoop treasure! Our dimwitted hero also will come across many of the memorable characters from the first game, but as as you can guess, his luck takes a turn for the worse pretty quickly.

I won't say much more on the story other than to point out it is most enjoyable with some great dialog & some truly funny moments. Although one thing I didn't like so much compared to Monkey Island 1 was the ending. I thought it was clever when I first saw it all those years ago as a kid, but now it seems not to fit the game very well .. don't let that disuade you from trying it though as its still a great adventure (and besides, you might like it!).

Fast forward about 25 years to the Special Edition re-make; no more floppy disks to swap out & improved graphics/sound/interface, plus a 'modern gamer' friendly hints (& highlighting) system to point you in the right direction when you get stuck. Certainly the help system can take the frustration out, but something I would recommend avoiding to really get the most satisfaction out of the game experience. Progress should be earned & figuring it out yourself is so much more rewarding!

Another timeless point 'n' click adventure! One of the best from the era!

I never laughed so hard in front of a video game in my whole life! Finally, a game that is tremendously fun and also makes you use your brains! This is the reason why i hate Disney for shutting LucasArts down. My favourite adventure game.

If you like point and click adventure games then MI2 is arguably best in breed. I remember spending hours playing Monkey Island 2 as a kid, long before the advent of the internet and having to work through the puzzles - it held my 8 year old attention which is impressive! I thoroughly recommend you take a look, treat yourself!

A fantastic sequel to one of the best point and click adventure games of all time. The jokes are as funny as ever, and the puzzles are tough enough that I can play it every 6 months and have to figure everything out all over again! Very much recommended.

I would recommend this game simply for the classic mode. It's hard to find any of the Monkey Island games legally, so to have the first 2 on Steam is the closest you might get. I say the classic mode because personally, I was not fond of the remastered graphics and voice acting.

The graphics felt too cartoon-ish to me as opposed to the semi-realistic details in the original. Characters also had details added to them that were probably not strived for in the originals, it would have been nice if the original developers were in charge of the design.

The voice acting feels badly-done and lazy, I feel like none of the voices match the characters (along with their re-designs not matching the originals).

However, this is only my opinion. Whether or not the updated audiovisuals appeal to you, the original classic is enough to make the $10 worth it.
