"Does everything a sequel should do, and more!"
Some say that the second outing of Pirate Guybrush Threepwood far outweighs the first, and for the most part I agree. Monkey Island is ultimately better simply because it was the first, very like StarWars, it has that edge of classic in it that cannot be denied. LeChuck's Revenge is entitled to be even better, it has more areas to explore, less linear path of adventure, and an endless cast new and old of unforgettable characters!
Threepwood returns of course, as a fully fledged Pirate with bags of cash, on a darning quest to find the legenary Big Whoop! treasure! But even before his journey is under way, he's robbed by a vile short guy called Largo! Can Guybrush get help in completing his quest from friends old and new, and can he discover the truth behind Largo's intent?
The graphics are much sharper and neater this second time around, the feeling of three dimensional space is much more than it was with Secret, and the maps and orbital-eye-views of islands are a lot more detailed and rendered than before.
No change with the controls, gladly, Guybrush is still moved and operated as he was with a point-and-click scheme. The sound is the same too, the theme is jazzed up and lengthened (a warning) and in game music is much more diverse and plentiful.
An excellent game, a shame it had a massive ELEVEN disks for the Amiga, but recommended without doubt!
