Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

I bet you've given Deathspank a glimpse after yesterday's review posted. You might've played Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition or Tales of Monkey Island last year. If so, congratulations, you're an adventure game nerd. But you're in good company. The tried-and-true combination of humor, plot-driven gameplay and simplified gameplay are very much in vogue right now. David Wolinsky played LucasArts' latest revamp, Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, and he digs what they've done:

"If you did play the original, more than likely you still have some muscle memory of encountering LeChuck’s Revenge’s craftier puzzles, but the ensuing two decades -- and the rise and fall of grunge --has likely washed your memory clean of how to solve them. The substantial window of time between the original and this update helps level the playing field between newcomers and those who still remember where they stored their Dial-A-Pirate copy-protection wheel for the first Monkey Island."

Ready to face LeChuck one more time? Read David's review of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition!
