bagronken's Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge: Special Edition (Xbox 360 Games Store) review

Guybrush, I am your brother!

LeChuckling your leg off

Monkey Island returned with another superhit for LucasArts, and the new Special Edition does not disappoint. You'll be smiling all the way through the brilliant puzzles and meeting the lovable characters yet again. Puzzles very rarely feel illogical or awkward, but the hint system will also help you along very well if you would get stuck. Simply put, this is one of the very best comedy adventure games there is and a worthy sequel.

Improved improvements

The new voice acting feels more solid than The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition, and they really bring life to the brilliant script. The updated graphics are also great, but the impressive original graphics didn't really need a facelift and you can now play with the old graphics and keep the voices, which was missing from the first re-release. A nice touch which feels like LucasArts has listened to their fans.

Pros & Cons

+ Great puzzles

+ Superb graphics, both old and new
