If you haven't already purchased Monkey Island 2 Special Edition on another platform, then there's absolutely no reason not to grab it for your iDevice thanks to an overhauled control scheme that works almost perfectly.
Slightly buggy or not, that shouldn’t prevent you from getting this game. At $7.99, it’s definitely on the high side for an app, but this is one of the very best games available in the App Store, with brilliant characters and top notch writing that rivals some of the best games of all time, on any system. If you’re a fan of the original, this should be a no-brainer, but if you’re on the fence, give Monkey Island 2 a try and prepare to be completely blown away.
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.
As I said, I'm a huge fan of this series, and as such, it hurts that I can't unconditionally recommend this game. However, it's a case where great graphics, sound, and controls just don't make up for frustrating game design and an incredibly disappointing ending. I spent too much of my time wondering what I could possibly do to move forward or why I was doing what I was doing. When a game costs as little as iOS games typically do, it's a lot easier to get your money's worth, but I still feel like this game pushes it.
