I once played a demo for Monkey Island 3. I loved the demo so much i bought Monkey Island 4 ( I dont see what u guys are getting at the 3D suits the game) I then downloaded Monkey 1&2 of u guys before u started charging for it ( Which is very reasonable.. I think) now I just hav 2 wait 2 more weeks till a frien gets Monkey3 for me . AND THEN I WOULD HAVE LPAYED EM ALL.. regretebly I got stuck and beecuase their was a vast pool of walkthrough's availeble I kinda cheated.... BUT MONKEY ISLAND ROCKS .. LUCASARTS KICK THE ****** OUT OF SIERRA!! :mrgreen:

The period that the story of monkey island is set i believe is depicted better using hand-made graphics and not 3D. Of course Monkey Island isn't exactly set in the pirate era. The real pirates of that time were a lot different than those in Monkey Island. As lucasarts says, the game is in fact inspired from the "pirates of the carribean" in the theme park of Disney. Anyway... i do not believe that 3D's should be used everywere, there are some games that need to stay 2D. If a time comes that 3D will be so good as 2D in relation to detail etc then it will be ok to use them instead of 3D.

no I didn't think 3d ruined the game
I loved the 4th game as much as the other ones
but I did not like guybrush in the third one.. it was just wrong

I do agree with stroggy, guybrush was too stupid in the 4th game. Also one of my favourite things from the first 2 games are missing from the fourth. Where is the necklace of bloodshot eyeballs, the severed navigator heads, the voodoo dolls that rip peoples limbs off and all the humouros gory violence.. it seems lucasarts went for a different market audience in the 4th then they did in the 1st and 2nd.

This game is great. I think the whole sword battles ruled. I use to play this game all the time on my Sega CD. I think anyone who enjoys graphic adventures should play this game, it is a definate must. I actually found myself enjoying all the versions, although I will admit, I still haven't played 4. I have so many great memories of this game!
