Monkey Island “Special Edition” Out Today!

The Secret of monkey island special edition xbox 360 800 ms pointsThe Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition is out today for an extremely cheap 800MS Points! I say cheap because this is one of my favourite game (series) from my youth, revamped with new graphics and sound for the youth of today! (Although there is the option to play it as it was in the old days). When compared to many other games on the Xbox Live marketplace, you are definately getting a great deal for your money.

I tried downloading it during my lunch break today but only got to about 75%! So I will have to wait until tomorrow to play it. I am very excited about this Monkey Island remake and hope it is the beginning of something wonderful; a re-release (and revamp) of a selection of classic Lucas Arts games such as Monkey Island 2 and “Day of the Tentacle”.

The Secret of Monkey Island is a strange “point-and-click” adventure game where you interact with people and objects in order to solve various puzzles. You “play” as the main character Guybrush Threepwood who wants to be a pirate. The game is full of great humour and characters and is guaranteed to provide hours of enjoyment and a memorable experience.

Download it now and let me know what you think! I will try and post more on this game after I have played it tomorrow!

Matt has been hooked on games since he received his first console (a SEGA Mega Drive) for his 7th birthday. He now spends most of his time on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, but will use any excuse for a retro gaming night.
