The game's story centers on the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood. After defeating ghost pirate LeChuck in The Secret of Monkey Island, little is known of what happened between Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley. The sequel involves Guybrush's attempts to both find the mysterious treasure, Big Whoop, and win back Elaine's love.
Completed the game
The second game in one of my all time favourite game series.
I would say that Monkey Island 2 was slightly harder than the first one. It also seemed more mature for some reason (not in it's wit).
I remember getting stuck on the song "The legbone is connected to the hip..." etc for a long time. The puzzle wasn't hard, my English knowledge was not that great at the time being just a young boy.
I remember getting disappointed by the lack of fencing. That was one part I very much enjoyed in the first game.
The end was quite confusing as well I thought.
Still one of my all time favourite games.
Completed the game
My favorite game of all time might as well be Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge. It might be the wittiest and most fun experience ever. The music is great and the graphics are outstanding. Characters are lovely (even LeChuck himself) and the story has depth.
I have two favorite characters in Monkey 2. One is the Voodoo Lady that always have a way to tell Guybrush that he's going to die, and there is but a small hope. The other is Stan, that would survive anything, come jumping up from the grave trying to sell you toothpaste.
When I played this the first time, I was really scared of getting arrested on Phat Island. But I had forgot that you can't die in Monkey Island games, and getting arrested is not so bad.
Hardest puzzle for me was probably the catalogue index in the library and finding the right books. I took some help from Walkthroughs (before internet those where published in computer magazines) and got past the trickier parts.
Make sure you replay this through the HD remakes that have been coming out last years. It is still as good as it was 20 years ago.
