It was when playing Football Manager 2009 through Steam that I saw an advert for 'Tales of Monkey Island', the fifth game in the excellent series. This got me thinking back to my youth and the incomparable 'Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge'. So I dug out the DVD and tried to complete it again, with the benefit of another 20 years experience I hoped it would be a bit easier than first time round. Thinking back it was probably 1992ish I played this the first time and if I recall correctly it took me six months of almost religious playing, along with my friends, before we completed it, almost as a collective effort. As you would expect this is a ... Read the complete review

LucasArts’ not-very-long-awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed ‘The Secret of Monkey Island’ is every bit the equal of its predecessor. In fact, it’s practically and technically identical, relying and making very few improvements upon the original’s style. But these were the days of simplistic point-n-click ‘adventure games,’ nothing like the complex RPGs that consume whole months of players’ lives today. Changing the backgrounds, characters and plot was enough to make for a completely different game, and the complexity and enjoyment level were determined by the ability and ingenuity of the writers. Ron Gilbert was the clear leader of the genre. Monkey ... Read the complete review

A week or two ago I was looking through the shelves of my old computer games (the ones that came on disks rather than CD-ROM when released) and came across the box of this game with a "Just Released" sticker on it, it seemed very hard to remember when this game was actually new. This is a point-and-click game and easily one of the best of its type, most people will have already heard of the game and played it (and hopefully enjoyed doing so) but anyone that hasn't done so yet really should, despite its age it is still a great game. --Story-- The game is the sequel to the original Monkey Island game, you resume the role of Guybrush ...

I remember reading frenziedly excited previews for Monkey Island 2 in magazines all those years ago. Other games the magazines enthused over included Leisure Suit Larry, The Bard's tale and Wing Commander 2. Controversy raged over Origin's decision to stop supporting 386s in future releases. Years later, and a 40Mhz 486 PC is no longer the height of aspiration, and expensive gems from those days are found in Abandonware archives. Only the Monkey Island games still appear in directories like www.dooyoo.co.uk! LeChuck's Revenge was the anticipated sequel to Lucasart's seminal The Secret of Monkey Island. Guybrush has matured from ... Read the complete review

The Secret of Monkey Island was, and still remains one of the best adventure games ever to hit the PC. Its getting on a bit in years now, but where the graphics and sound may look a little dated by today's standards, the gameplay is still way up there with the best. In the original Monkey Island you played a wannabee pirate called Guybrush Threepwood who had to perform a numer of tasks to achieve your goal. Along the way you defeated the pirate LeChuck and ended up with a rather large amount of booty - but not the fame you expected because nobody believes you! Well, here you sit with your money at the start of the game until you are mugged and left ... Read the complete review
