Lucasarts has brought back one of their all-time classics to Xbox 360, and Monkey Island 2: LeChucks Revenge - Special Edition is by absolutely no means whatsoever a simple port of a well-remembered genre classic. This is a ground-up complete recreation of the game - the same story and characters and settings of the original, but completely
redone in high definition with improvements in interface,
newly re-recorded music of the original MIDI cues, and
original voice cast from Monkey Island sequels brought back
over a decade later to add voices to characters that we
never heard speak until later games in the series were made.
One of the things I lamented a little when consoles began to be the dominant mainstream of gaming versus pc, was that a great genre of game - the graphic adventure game - seemed to be losing ground."
