Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge goes Retina!

When I was finishing up on my review of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge one of the things that really got me down was the graphics. I’d love to love this excellent adventure game in full Retina resolution, but I couldn’t. Instead a lot of the graphics were blurry and most of the fonts looked downright awful. Well, in an unexpected move, LucasArts have conceded the point and released a free update to Monkey Island 2, fixing a bunch of minor issues, and, most importantly, adding Retina Display resolution.
