Young swashbuckler Guybrush Threepwood returns in this sequel to 1990's The Secret of Monkey Island. Unfortunately for him, evil ghost pirate LeChuck has returned as well. Fame and fortune seeker Threepwood sets his sights on the mysterious treasure of Big Whoop, which is rumored to have special powers -- powers that might finally put an end to a certain apparition's relentless pursuit. Now it's a race between Threepwood and LeChuck to recover the treasure and compete their destinies.

Monkey Island 2 has you solving a variety of humorous puzzles while guiding Guybrush Threepwood through the storyline's four chapters: Largo Embargo, Four Map Pieces, LeChuck's Fortress, and Dinky Island. Collect an assortment of offbeat items, from a used hanky to a clean white shirt, to work your way out of various predicaments. While the point-and-click play mechanics are identical to its predecessor, Monkey Island 2 features a few notable changes, including 256-color artwork, an interactive reggae soundtrack, and an optional easy mode. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
