Arrr Matey! It seems that our buddy LeChuck just can't stay dead. So everybody's favorite pirate wannabe Guybrush Threepwood must once again bungle his way through puzzles, riddles, and three headed monkeys.

LeChuck is back and he wants revenge on poor Guybrush. While LeChuck is planning his revenge our hero Guybrush sets out on another adventure--this time to find the fabled treasure of Big Whoop. Along the way he will meet many new characters and acquire more skills than ever before. Learning how to win a spitting contest, breaking out of jail, and how to hypnotize a piano playing monkey.

Along the way he finds out that LeChuck is after him again. In the end Guybrush meets up with LeChuck and learns a terrible secret about their past.

Like the last game there is hardly anything I would find offensive, just maybe that the Voodoo theme is a little heavier in this one. Still I will stand by it as good clean fun. And your mind will grow evermore from solving more insane puzzles.

Year of Release—1992
