Post-Play Report: Monkey Island: Special Edition

The Monkey Island series was always a series that I wanted to play, but never was really interested in trying out. This past summer, however; I finally decided to give the XBOX Live Arcade release a try. This remake of "The Secret of Monkey Island" is just about as much as can be asked for from a company trying to rekindle interest in a franchise.

The remake gives the whole game a complete makeover, replacing the already great pixelated graphics with beautifully drawn art, as well as giving every character a voice and adding more ambience to scenes where it would apply. This provides a perfect example of how to remake a classic. For only 10 dollars, this game should be purchased and played by everyone.
