What is the SECRET of Monkey Island? Well your going to have to figure that out yourself. But one thing that is not a secret, is how amazing this game is. Quite possibly the first adventure game I ever played and the game that got me hooked to the genre. I love the music, the humor, the storyline, and almost everything about the game. Now looking back 25 years later I do see that the game is not completely without flaw. First, the game was made in 1990 so the graphics aren't all that great and there are no voices. Second, the game is relatively short by today's standards. This is not something that bothers me and shouldn't for most people, but might to the more recent fans of adventure gaming. Luckily the Special Edition gives the best of both worlds graphically (sorry but the story is still just as short), as old fans and new fans can enjoy the game they would want to play. Because trust me, there are some old fans that would cringe at the new look. The classic version and new version can be switched seemlessly by hitting F10. The old version staying true to its ancient (voodoo?) roots of a verb menu and an inventory box. The new version many good additions added to its gameplay as the new version intoduces 3D art, voices, and a much larger screen of play (due to the fact that the verb menu and an inventory box have been removed). Although I do enjoy a much larger screen, this is the one thing about the new version I am not fond of. They do have a drop down menu for the verb menu by hitting Ctrl or V as well as one for the inventory by hitting Alt or I, but this feels like more of a hassle than the old game used to be. At the end of the day, this game is a keeper. So don the adventurer's cap and become "Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate!"
