  1. Amarcord operations like this one should be enforced by law: a masterpiece of videogame history is proposed again with new graphics and a new style. All has remained as we remembered, with its ironic strength and its perfection. Simply a myth.
  2. One of the best adventures ever for the price of a paperback? [Oct 2010, p.121]
  3. Monkey Island 2: Special Edition brings HD life to probably the best adventure game ever. Nice graphics, great artistic choices and a revamped control system for an unavoidable title for every adventure fan.
  4. Fans of the series, adventure games or comedies will likely feel right at home with Monkey Island 2 SE. Even if it's not your typical taste, if you were ever curious about this style of game, it would certainly be a great place to start.
  5. It's just as funny and entertaining as its older self, if not more, with new music, awesome voice-acting, and great bonus features.
  6. Simply a must-have puzzle game. [Sept 2010, p.101]
  7. Another lovingly recreated LucasArts adventure. [Issue#62,p.100]
  8. The entire package does a fantastic job of delivering all the fun, brain-teasing puzzles and hilarity for which the series is known.
  9. You really have to either hate point and click games with the burning passion of a thousand suns or not like dealing with downloadable games to dislike this title.
  10. LeChuck's Revenge is one of those rare games that we can truly feel privileged to experience, and this mostly faithful recreation is a necessity for aficionado and newcomer alike.

    Fans will appreciate the colorful commentary from the franchise creators and unlockable art gallery, while those intimidated by the adventure games of the past will find comfort in the simplified controls, object highlighting and hint system.
  12. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is a game to be played for the nostalgia factor, and for those who never played it the first time. I'd also throw in die-hard fans of the series, but people new to the franchise will be left scratching their heads unable to grasp what the big whoop was in the first place.
  13. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition 2: LeChuck's Revenge' is a great update to a classic.
