Okay this will be filled with nostalgia and fanboyism ^^
This is a masterpiece of adventure-games!
A part of gaming-history!
The early Lucasarts adventures were all great, including Monkey Island 2, i actually started gaming on the pc with it, that's why it is and always will be my favorite adventure game.
I never played the special edition so far, but it's really well done!
I like the idea of switching between the old pixel-graphics and the new special-edition. But actually, i didn't missed the old one, though it still has it's charme, as they did a great job with the new graphics (but i still can't forgive them completely what they had done to Guybrushs hair in the special edition for monkey island 1..ugh).
Even though they kinda overhauled the graphic, they still managed to keep the spirit and charme from the old pixelated graphics. The sound is great as always and the spoken voices add a lot to the atmosphere.
I recommend this to all adventure fans out there.
If you didn't played this so far, shame on you and catch up on it...now!!
I'll be watching you!! :D
This is a straight 10 out of 10 LeChucks!
