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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Zelda is kinda a time machine, huh? (1 Hour ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 I will wait for someone like digital foundry to confirm the issues are fixed and then i will consider buying it (1 Hour ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @Moonwalker: You would think the whole point of releasing the demo so close to launch was to get final product quality, so for the demo to have these big issues is frustrating. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Keep in mind that the PS4 demon has very very bad input and will be fixed in final version. So that should make the handling better. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I mean, compare the clunky, awkwards gloo gun/wrench combo with the "one/two punch" of bioshock. Its night and day the level of quality on display. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i found it boring. And the combat was too shitty to handle the fast small mimics particularly well. It just isn't a very well done game. Which sucks. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: True but still Prey could be great. I definitely enjoyed that first hour and I really liked the Mimic aspect, it sure is different. (4 Hours ago)
