The reason I changed this to "Cutthroat Island" before is because of the back of the box, seen here:

In two instances on the box back, "Cutthroat" is used, with the first instance being a direct "Cutthroat Island". I propose that the title on the box cover is stylized and that the intended spelling is "Cutthroat". A decision must thus be reached based on the importance or lack of importance in the title's stylized box font.

To a lesser importance: The game's story text also refers to the titular island as "Cutthroat Island".
