I have vague memories of Monkey Island 2 being fully voiced, but am worried that I might be slightly delusional.

Was there a voiced version of MI2 (prior to the Special Edition) or did the voice acting start in MI3?

    Why are there votes to close this question as off topic? It seems fine to me. – Steve V. May 31 '13 at 21:23
  • @SteveV. "off-topic", though I don't know why – Zommuter Jun 3 '13 at 16:24

Wikipedia states that MI3 was the first in the series to feature voice acting:

The Curse of Monkey Island was the first game in the series to feature voice acting.

The MIWiki notes that the voices were added in the special edition:

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, released 19 years after the original game, uses updated graphics, adds voice-overs by many of the same actors as in the later games, [...]

From my personal memory, I don't recall it having voices. This was somewhat unusual for a CDROM release from Lucasarts, as most of their CDROM releases were talkies...

    MI2 was originally released on floppies, not CDs. – KatieK May 31 '13 at 15:42
  • @KatieK, yes, but there was a CDROM release shortly thereafter. Usually the CDROM editions of LucasArts games came with voice overs (like Fate of Atlantis' CDROM release in '92) – agent86 May 31 '13 at 15:45
  • @agent86 - I don't recall a standalone CD version of Monkey Island 2, but there was a combination of 1 & 2 (which I think was re-released several times). The first game (CD version) had an updated interface, and the second Monkey Island had better sound (I think the original floppy version used MIDI files). – user101016 Mar 3 '15 at 11:14
