Young swashbuckler Guybrush Threepwood returns in this sequel to 1990's The Secret of Monkey Island. Unfortunately for him, evil ghost pirate LeChuck has returned as well. Fame and fortune seeker Threepwood sets his sights on the mysterious treasure of Big Whoop, which is rumored to have special powers -- powers that might finally put an end to a certain apparition's relentless pursuit. Now it's a race between Threepwood and LeChuck to recover the treasure and compete their destinies.
Monkey Island 2 has you solving a variety of humorous puzzles while guiding Guybrush Threepwood through the storyline's four chapters: Largo Embargo, Four Map Pieces, LeChuck's Fortress, and Dinky Island. Collect an assortment of offbeat items, from a used hanky to a clean white shirt, to work your way out of various predicaments. While the point-and-click play mechanics are identical to its predecessor, Monkey Island 2 features a few notable changes, including 256-color artwork, an interactive reggae soundtrack, and an optional easy mode.
Guybrush Threepwood, the mighty pirate who can hold his breath for ten minutes, could have lived quietly and happily with his sweetheart Elaine, the governor of Melee Island. But the restless pirate spirit won't let Guybrush in peace! Things don't go very well with Elaine, and Guybrush (now with a beard) embarks on a new adventure: searching for the legendary treasure of Big Whoop! However, the evil ghost pirate LeChuck hasn't left the stage yet. His subordinates are trying to bring him back from the dead one more time. Will Guybrush be able to defeat his archenemy again?
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is an adventure game which is a sequel to The Secret of Monkey Island. It utilizes the same command-based SCUMM interface (you click the verb, then click on the object you want to interact with) and branching dialogue system (while talking to other characters, you choose one of possible responses) that were used in its predecessor. The game features hand-painted graphics, many new locations, and plenty of challenging puzzles to solve.
Monkey Island 2 is the second in LucasArts Monkey Island series. It was made in 1991, two years after the first game was released. This game was a smash hit in stores, but unfortunately was the last in the series to be written and directed by Ron Gilbert. It was also the first game to use spit in a puzzle.
The story revolves around Guybrush Threepwood, who after besting LeChuck, went down in ruin and lost most of his money like a good red blooded American male. The rest of the money he is using to find a fabulous pirate treasure to Big Whoop. Every sailor who's gone in search of the fabled treasure has never returned or has died of mysterious circumstances. It is said that the fabled treasure is either a great hoard of moolah/dough or it is the gateway to the very threshold of Hades itself. Guybrush, armed with a fully grown beard and a weird hatred of porcelain, sets off the find the treasure. What he doesn't realize is that his old enemy, the new zombie incarnation of the ghost pirate LeChuck has been brought back from the dead and has new plans to destroy Guybrush.
The graphics in the game are AWESOME!!!! Where Monkey Island 1 bordered on the realistic, Monkey Island 2 was a cross between realistic and cartoonist. They were top notch graphics for the time, and they trounced over Sierra. The music is pretty good too. The music revolved around the 90s more than the first games music did as the music in this game was more rock than midi. My personal favorites were the theme song and Largo LaGrandes theme.
I liked this game as much as Monkey Island 1 and believe that it was a revolutionary thing to play back during the early days of PC games. Don't waste time, buy this gem as fast as you can.
