I’ll cover the Special Edition of Secret of Monkey Island, AND the Original in this review as they are the same game; except the remake has better graphics, better music, better sound FX, and better voice acting. On top of this, you can switch between old and new version on the fly on the Special Edition.
I like the dabble in Point and Clicks, and some of them are our favourite games of all time, but Monkey Island is one I’ve had to keep coming back to several times in the last 20 odd years because I never actually managed to get off the first chapter.

I got the Megadrive working over Christmas, and like in 1993 when I unboxed this beaut, I got Mega Games 1. Imagine it… 3 games! SUCH WOW!
Chances are, if you’re over 25 you will have played this game, and it will most likely have been one of your favourite games. Everyone I know mentions this as the first football game they played, and everyone has fairly fond memories of it.
