"Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is an adventure game developed and published by LucasArts in 1991. It was the second game of the Monkey Island series, following The Secret of Monkey Island, and the sixth LucasArts game to use the SCUMM engine. It was the first game to use the iMUSE sound system.
The game's story centers on the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood. After defeating ghost pirate LeChuck in The Secret of Monkey Island, little is known of what happened between Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley. The sequel involves Guybrush's attempts to both find the mysterious treasure, Big Whoop, and win back Elaine's love.
The development team for the game was largely the same as for the first game in the series. The project was led by Ron Gilbert, and he was once more joined by Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman. LeChuck's Revenge is considered by critics to be among the best of LucasArts' adventure games."

Following the release of a Special Edition of the first Monkey Island game in 2009, a Special Edition of Monkey Island 2 was released for PS3, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows, and Xbox 360 platforms in July 2010.
The special edition includes updated graphics, a new musical score, new voice-overs, an art gallery, and an in-game hint system, however, the "lite" mode has been omitted. Players can opt to switch from the updated version into the older, pixelated graphics and music of the original game at any time, though an option allows players to retain the voice-overs of the remake. Players can opt to use the original point-and-click control scheme, or can directly control the movements of Guybrush using a control pad or similar device.
The trio of game designers have recorded a commentary track for the Special Edition that can be brought up at any time, using silhouettes in the fashion of Mystery Science Theater 3000 overlayed on the graphics.
