    Looks like crap. Just look at Guybrush. He looks like a fucking retard. [​IMG]

    That's my opinion atleast.

    Oh I meant the special edition.
    I'm not sure about the other one though. :\
    Looks uninspiring.

    The art style of the remake is crappy, doesn't suit the series at all and the characters look stupid too. I still have the old ones so I'll ignore it.

    The WiiWare ones, I welcome a new MI game, even though the last one was the worst in the series it was still very good. Not sure about the look, I guess I am one of those who'd prefer a 2D look.

    Telltale did do the excellent Strong Bad Episodes and some good (as well as meh) Sam & Max episodes so I am positive, can't say I liked their Wallace & Gromit game though.

    I can't view the images because I'm at school but I will probably buy this regardless of the graphics. I never played the game and I've heard nothing but good things about it.

    The remake looks... bland. Typical "Anniversary Edition" game. Good still, but bland nevertheless. The other game looks much better. At least, it's something original, so I can judge it by its own merits.

    Oh, who am I fooling? I'll get both, FFS! [​IMG]

    Oh, so lucasart keeping the license 20 long years finally have a meaning (they always refused to put their games in abandonware form).

    But, 20 years to make ... THAT ? no please [​IMG]
    The character doesn't look like the real old ones [​IMG]
    I don't like the new character design (in both project), it doesn't have the same feeling.
    But the background looks lovely in full color and details ^^

    I guess we will have to try it to see if it's good.

    I kinda like the new graphics..
    But since I like the old graphics even more, I'll probably going to play it with those.

    So I'm definatly buying this!
    I still have the originals (1+2+3) here right next to me on my desk [​IMG]

    Why wouldn't anyone like it if you grew up with AMIGA and other retro computers that were around when it was first released! [​IMG]
