Puede que esta edición especial haya quedado coja en algún aspecto, como la irregular “emulación” de la versión clásica, sobre todo en cuanto al aspecto sonoro, o la eliminación de algunas características tipo los créditos originales, pero no cabe duda que el salto de calidad que presenta con respecto a la primera edición especial es enorme, gracias al mimo con el que se han tratado los rediseños de los personajes y escenarios, la tremenda banda sonora o la inclusión de los comentarios. Quizás podría haberse hecho mejor, puede que para una versión “ultimate” por ejemplo, pero por aproximadamente 10 euros aquí tienes desde luego una aventura buenísima y un reconocimiento más que evidente por un clasicazo de toda la vida. Muy recomendable seas o no fan del juego.

Classic adventure fans and newbies to the genre alike will fall in love with the brilliance of Monkey Island at what many would call its peak. One of the best games of all time is magically even better.

If there's a game on this week's list that I'm going to put the most time into revisiting and replaying, it's this one.

The version to get, I know that I will be replaying this more than once on the iPad. The lack of the more helpful verb system and nicer 3d effects separates this from the PC and console version, but SE 2 is still more than playable on the iPad.

There’s something for everyone in Monkey Island 2 Special Edition. Fans will appreciate the colorful commentary from the franchise creators, while those intimidated by the adventure games of the past will find comfort in the simplified controls, object highlighting and hint system.

So do you have an iPad? Looking to get one? And do you like games with great stories? Then grab Monkey Island 2 as soon as you can, because it’s one of the best games available for the system. Don’t bother with anything else — just sit back, relax, and keep an eye out for three-headed monkeys.

Monkey Island 2 hat alles, was einen Nachfolger auszeichnet: Es sieht toller aus, klingt schöner, hat bessere Puzzles, teilweise noch abgedrehtere Jokes und bietet mehr Spiel fürs Geld - aber irgendwie hat es mich damals schon nicht ganz so aus den Socken gehauen wie der erste Teil. Ein fantastisches Adventure, aber mir fehlte die Leichtigkeit des Originals. Das trifft bei der Special Edition gleich doppelt zu, denn hier wurde der einfache Schwierigkeitsgrad wegrationalisiert, was zu einem sehr anspruchsvollen Abenteuer führt - wer sich nicht gerade die Achievements versauen will, dürfte oft die Hilfe-Funktionen bemühen. Schade ist auch, dass gerade beinharte Fans einige unschöne Überraschungen erwarten: Der Verlust der Original-Vor- und Abspänne ist genau so ärgerlich wie das Verschwinden der iMuse-Funktion im Original-Soundtrack.
