* PortingDisaster: In contrast to the pretty well-done Amiga port of the first game (so much so, in fact, that most Amiga fans have overwhelmingly preferred it to the original DOS version, though mileage tends to vary among people less partial to the Amiga), the Amiga port of this one was pretty lackluster. Although the smooth scrolling was a nice touch and much of the detail was retained in the backgrounds despite the smaller pallette, many background animations were lost as were extra effects, and only a very small percentage of the game's music was translated (almost less than a third, leading to silence in way more areas than should be excusable). On top of that, [=iMuse=] was ENTIRELY left out of this port, which was one of the game's flagship features! Compared to the praise the original's Amiga port gets, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who will recommend this one.

What little music survived was pretty lackluster, and seemed really hastily cobbled together, such as Jojo's piano song which barely even sounds anything like a piano. On top of that, [=iMuse=] was ENTIRELY left out of this port, which was one of the game's flagship features!

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpVF2t39jEc Woodtick]] has a cool theme with variations for each side area and seamless transitions, including a StylisticSuck [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrEezdtNiFU piano version for when Jojo the Monkey is playing in the bar]].

* {{Squick}}: Seeing Governor Phatt, his grotesquely obese body lying in bed, with some ugly goo being constantly fed UnwinnableByInsanity: Early versions allowed Guybrush to him through tubes.get the 6000 pieces of eight needed to hire Kate Capsize one at a time by polishing the peg leg of one of the Men of Low Moral Fiber.[[note]]It would stop giving money once you reach a certain amount, but you could delay that by buying things from the antique dealer, which could later be sold back at full price.[[/note]] Doing this bypassed learning the trick to winning the spitting contest, which was later needed to escape from a death trap. The special edition fixes this by capping the number of pieces of eight Guybrush could earn this way far, far lower.

* NightmareFuel: Until [[VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland Tales]] was released, this was unqestionably the scariest of the series. For specific examples, see below.

** Guybrush's parents come back in his dream, and then their skin melts off. Then the scene goes funny again when they start dancing. But the scene goes scary again when [=LeChuck=] shows up, turns into YOU, and then kills you the same way you killed him in the first game. It's not exactly ''Film/TheExorcist'', but it can be pretty freaky when you're a kid.

** [=LeChuck=] chasing Guybrush around [[spoiler: with a voodoo doll in the tunnels beneath Dinky Island]] is terrifying. While you're desperately trying to solve the last puzzle of the game, there's this dread that at any point, [=LeChuck=] could come in and send Guybrush screaming in pain into the next room. For a little kid trying to finish the game while watching the loveable pirate being [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured]], this game is an anciety-inducing masterpiece.
