Worth:Every Penny                      Memorability:Unforgettable
Aesthetic:Gorgeous                      Audio:Fantastic

Pros:Voice-acting is superb, environments are exceptional. iMUSE works beautifully in this, making the soundtrack feel alive. The game is completely unaltered, and concept art from the original development decades ago was used to fill in the blanks instead of simply extrapolating from what could be seen. The puzzles are just enough of a challenge, and the game is a fair length for a point n' click adventure. Guybrush and all other sprites look fantastic.

Cons:Final boss has issues (not game-breaking) that could've been polished in this remaster. Hints make the game far too easy, though achievements at least discourage their use slightly. Story gives you a bit of a run-around, so you'll be revisiting the same places multiple times.

Overall:A true genre-definer. This is everything a remake should be; True to it's origins, created with passion, bursting at the seams with creativity. Very few point n' clicks match can compete.

Lovable characters, hilarious dialogue and wacky puzzles all return here and make for another Monkey Island more than worth your time and money. The cherry on top is the very interesting commentary from the most important guys involved with the game's development (Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, and Dave Grossman).

Not as good as the original Monkey Island, but an excellent game none the less.

In my opinion one of the most underrated game, if not the most. The fun point and click gameplay mixed with the interesting puzzles and the cheeky humor make this one of my favorite games. This and the first monkey island are definitely worth 20 dollars

If you take into account the same old difficult puzzles, the weird funny dialogues, and the new graphics and dubbing, together with the in-game developers' comments, the special edition of LeChuck's Revenge is probably the best chapter ever of the Monkey Island series.

This was one of my first game on PC back in 1993. I really enjoyed it and fought through the game several times. Now that I played the remake all the memories came back and I realized, that I enjoyed this version as much as the original. I would recommend this game for those hwo played the original ad also for those who didn't, because it is an epic point and click adventure game with lot of fun.

If you have yet to play the original version, get this instead. This 1ups the previous special edition by having much better UI, Guybrush looks even greater in his best look (In my opinion, shame they made him look like MI1 Guybrush in MI3) and haivng commentary of the developers which are quite interesting and amusing. This is one adventure you can enjoy playing twice. If you use a walkthrough, the fun is over.

Except for one time where a certain part of the game is much easier when you use classic mode.

A fun point and click remake of an older game. The graphics are better than the updated version of the first installment. Gave up towards the end, due to a poorly coded part of the game, but it's alright otherwise.

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.

i’m so glad LucasArts continued on from their successful remake of the first Monkey Island game to re-make Monkey Island 2. i had even fonder memories of this game from my childhood. and i thought their last re-make was near-perfect. well this re-make is even nearer-perfect!

you can still switch to the classic version at ANY point in the game, which is fully awesome, there’s outstanding voice acting and brilliantly re-recorded music and awesome new hi-res art, but this time around they’ve added the ability to keep the new voices when you switch to classic mode and also the new version has a stylish hotspot soft-highlight function so that you don’t miss any interactive areas. the new 2D backgrounds are gorgeous! and the characters are all done in 2D animation also, which is rare these days, but they look GREAT and basically copy the classic movements from the original game Smile

As a direct remake, it does suffer from the less-developed game design of the time, like having its share of illogical puzzles and an oversized inventory (which you can fill even further with items that are never used for anything, making already tricky puzzle-solving even more frustrating). but LucasArts have largely offset these problems by including a mostly-sturdy hint system so that you won’t be frustrated for long.

In terms of pure fun-ness to play, it didn’t quite match up to my childhood memories, and i did prefer the recent addition to the series “Tales of Monkey Island” which i only just finished before playing this, but as an updated trip down memory lane, this was all class. i wonder what LucasArts will re-make next…

The 2nd game in the series and in my opinion a much funnier and better game than the first. Also, they've managed to get a bigger budget and better artists for the special edition, the art is much better than the first.

Nostalgia is obviously a huge factor for me, I've switched back and forth a number of time between the original and updated version, I enjoyed the game as much as I did back then, because of it's humor but I understand that these games were designed to sell Walkthroughs back in the 90s when people didn't have access to the internet and bbs systems were a niche thing.

The monkey island games really are the gold standard of point and click adventure games. If you haven't played the monkey island games, and you're spending time on PnC adventures... you're doing it wrong.

It's a shame Lucas didn't opt for a more sensitive treatment of originals' wonderful backgrounds and character design. Soulless outsourcing did not manage to destroy the wonderful game underneath though. And the new voiceovers + music are great.

I played the original Monkey Island 2 long ago, and loved it then. This remake gave me an excuse to play it again, and it's just as good as back then.

Gameplay-wise, it's standard fare for SCUMM engine games: you talk to people, combine stuff with other stuff, give stuff to people, and use all that to solve puzzles. The puzzles could be very head-scratching (especially a particular one towards the end of the game), but for the most part, it was manageable. Being a game focused on humor, some puzzle solutions were absolutely hilarious, once you figured them out. Compared to the original, they really didn't change too much in terms of gameplay, other than changing up the UI a bit so that it's a bit closer to Curse of Monkey Island. What I mean by this is that you have to open up an inventory screen, instead of having it present all the time on the bottom pane, and you click and hold the right mouse button over an object to get a list of options to do with it, instead of having those options always present in the bottom pane like old SCUMM games. It wasn't anything big, but I think it streamlined the gameplay a bit, not forcing you to scroll to the bottom of the screen all the time for actions, though it was annoying to switch to an inventory screen to use items all the time, especially for time-critical puzzles.

As expected, the music was redone from its original MIDI format. This works well in some places, but what made the music in orignial Monkey Island 2 really special was the seamless transitions of songs with the iMuse engine. They replicate the transitions here, but I felt that, beyond a couple of tracks (like Woodtick), the transitions in some songs as you went from one area to another in a location are a bit forced, compared to the original. This is a side effect of having pre-recorded songs play, instead of having MIDI play and change instruments/notes dynamically, but that's my only gripe.

New from this remake from the original is the voice-acting, which I felt really added to my experience, and really made it worthwhile to play the game again, after going through the orignal so many times before. As with the Secret of Monkey Island remake, you have several of the Curse of Monkey Island cast reprising their roles for recurring characters, like Dominic Armato for Guybrush and Earl Boen as LeChuck, and as always, they do a superb job. Some scenes in the game were actually a lot funnier when delivered with actual voice-acting this time.

Also expected from this remake was the overhauled graphics, which made things less pixelated, and added some frames of animations in some areas. However, despite that last bit about added animation frames, the game mostly uses the same number of animation frames as the original, which look really weird with the updated visuals. If you have ever played Street Fighter II: HD Remix, it's a similar to that, where graphics are now HD and more detailed, but the number of frames is the same as the original. It's a bit off-putting, but not too big of a deal. Walking animations for Guybrush and LeChuck have far more frames than the original, though, which looks really nice, but it's just kind of weird to have that where everything else pretty much has the same number of frames as the original game. In fact, in some places in the remake, there are less frames of animation, like with Rapp Scallion's resurrection, which was very well-animated in the original, but was choppy in the remake. I'm unsure why this is, but it bothered me why they did that.

Story-wise, this game is nothing that amazing: you're Guybrush Threepwood, a sort of loser pirate that defeated LeChuck last game, but still doesn't get any respect, so you are looking for the famous treasure, Big Whoop. The game relies mostly on humor to keep your attention, and in that regard, it does its job very well. I sometimes just replay parts of the game to go through all dialogue options, as they all typically have very interesting outcomes.

The game also includes the original version in it, which you could switch to at any time, like in Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. It's a nice feature for those who want to play the game in its original form.

I'd say this is a definite pick-up for any graphic adventure enthusiast, and especially for fans of the Monkey Island series or LucasArts adventure games.
