Sold! I absolutely loved the original but never finished it. The updated visuals are just icing on the cake. Not quite sure how the point and click interface is going to work with a controller, but I imagine it will be just fine. Cant wait!

The character Art is as atrocious, as they come. Those dude don't have a single clue.

Putting that aside, do want.

I'll totally buy it in hopes that MI2 is released as well (that's my favorite) but i don't like them new graphics at all. Sure is a good thing we have the old ones still.

Lol at picture 4, "use" rubber chicken on wire. Brings back memories.
Still Guybrush looks worse then le chuck. Real shame.

Perfect fit then?

Fuck me, I was planning to buy this but since they only have enough time for about two conversations (and not very good ones at that), it really doesn't give any impression about the game.

Bad demo = no sale. :/

game is awesome. new art style is great. only gybrush looks a bit strange and its a shame that you cant play the original version with localised texts and voice acting. but the worst thing is that in the new version "look at" is missing. i have to play chapter 2. in old mode to look in to the chests and so. playing it for 5 hours and just arrived at monkey island (tm) ;)

are you kidding? the under 10 crowd never will play this. they cant get in touch with such games and they are just too young to get it without help (most of them) this is for the "old" gamers how love such games especially the lucasarts games.

The HD version suffers from terrible animation which is a shame, there is no way I will be playing the old style either.

It's also hard to select the test with the mouse in 1080p as the text and mouse pointer don't quite match up.

It does look really nice in HD though :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth problem with such platforms is they will only work with software where they can extract motion data, and having no standards there, they have build support for each individual game. (38 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: gotta untwist those cords (40 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What I want to know is, what if the game glitches? (58 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's a strange thing. I reckon being tossed around physically like that would help with certain sims, though. If not, yeah, you're projectile vomiting all over the gaff. LOL that would be hilarious. (59 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: I mean, part of the problem I've experienced is when you move without moving. I can feel my head go "Whoa! What's going on here?! I didn't send the signal to move!" (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Locomotion. Wouldn't that help making your mind believe what its seeing a bit more for motion sickness? (1 Hour ago)

    rayy @alimokrane: Sometimes I think you care more about the viewpoint than if the game is fun lol. (1 Hour ago)
