The Secret of Monkey Island II: LeChuck's Revenge (LucasArts, 1992)

LeChuck's Revenge is very different from The Secret of Monkey Island, concerning the story of Guybrush after he has become a pirate. It also covers an area that is at least as large as that of the previous game, and probably larger. The puzzle solutions generally fit with the times (1600s), and the humor is still top notch. Improved graphics and sound help out the game by letting us get a better glimpse of what the atmosphere of the time is like. The game is easy--perhaps even easier than the first game, and the plot is not quite as interesting or as well developed, but it is a good adventure--one that you could probably enjoy even if you had never played The Secret of Monkey Island.
