The original Monkey Island titles are arguably LucasArts' pinnacle of 1990 era graphic adventures. When rumors of a remastered, re-release of the PC/Mac/Atari ST title first leaked out, there was a collective "Yes! (Look there's a 3-headed monkey behind you!)" from those who still have fond memories of Guybrush Threepwood's humorous pirate adventures. It hasn't been much longer than a month since The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition was official unveiled for both the Xbox 360 via XBLA and PC, and after finally getting our hands on it: that "Yes!" is still very relevant.
