Excellent review, Lewis. As usual, you always use a review to Make A Point and in this case the Point is well taken. I do think we will be seeing an Adventure Game revolution with the release of Heavy Rain in early 2010, but it's hardly an innovation that could be applied to Monkey Island, not without a complete style change.

And therein, too, lies a Problem with Remaking games. With a remake you're swimming the same Lake, but you're doing it in a bigger, faster, boat (or so one can hope). I've yet to see a remake that TRULY remakes the source material. What we have are ReHashes, not ReMakes.

To truly ReMake Monkey Island, you'd have to use realistic graphics, make Threepwood a grim killer and probably have the revelation at the end be that he, himself, is LeChuck.

And then you'd hear the purists speak up. But so what? Purists will always complain, that's what they Do.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

I'm just jealous you got to play and review the game before it was even available. I'm getting it now. And I have about half an hour to play before I have to go to work. >_<


I can avoid death by not having a life.
