From what I’ve seen, the new look is aweful, but there will be an option to switch it back.

The completely new episode based game looks even creepier though. As if it was designed for the Amiga CD32.

The remake is.. well, it’s not a grand old epiphany. Monkey Island one isn’t that funny anymore once you’ve beaten it. Not as many great jokes, more of an atmospheric romp through pirateland than anything. MI 2 tho.. they really pulled out all the stops. As for the remake proper, the art is sometimes kinda crappy, sometimes completely amazing (The backgrounds for instance are completely insanely grand, makes it look a lot more like the MI 3 and 4’s locales), and the voiceacting is great in some places, kinda meh in some. But really, that’s cause the text in this wasn’t written originally to be spoken. It’s not a BAD remake…because it is, in fact, exactly like the original in a puzzle kind of sense. New GUI, but that’s about it.

The episodes vary slightly in quality in a variety of areas. Whereas the locales in the second episode are great, when they aren’t being reused (goddamn carribean and it’s many islands of jungle!), some of the speech has to be repeated in a certain couple of areas, leading to a lot of frustration in hearing it. Ep 1 doesn’t have this problem, but isn’t all that varied in terms of characters you meet or stuff you do. Episode 2 also has one of the dumbest, longest puzzles of the series so far near the end. (And why does it always have to be 3 goddamn things? I mean, I know they made that joke in Sam and Max, but still, it’s getting really old. Mix things up a bit!) Voice acting is top notch all around, but storywise.. well, some of the stuff you can just see coming a mile away. Nooooo, you mean the strange girl that appears right after you find out human LeChuck is trying to woo Elaine again is a fan of yours. I never!
