MI4 special edition PLEASE!
First of, MI3 was the first game in the series I played and fell in love with the graphic style and I dont get people that say that scumm was better (or those complaining about the beard thing). And that MI3 doesnt need a remake, its in my opinion the perfect point n click adventure.

However I think we can all agree that MI4 is a huge disgrace and doesnt really need a special edition, but a total remake. Meaning new story,puzzles, graphics.

monkey combat and medical charts... what the hell were they smoking...

1. Yes, I agree. MI4 does need a special edition, also. See my latest coments on "Well, we've finished about a third?"
2.MI3's graphics are incredible. I actually got addicted to adventure games for a short time because of a demo of MI2:SE on XBLA.
3. Actually, MI3 uses the Scumm engine. Just so you know. :)
3b. The reason everyone loves Scumm is because it revolutionized the whole concept of adventure games. Before Scumm, most adventure games used just text, and no graphics, or they had graphics that had the same amount of quality that an MS PAINT drawing has. (I'm looking at you, King's Quest) It wasn't the first point and click game, Sierra released multiple point and click remakes and new games. Kings Quest 5 and 6 are the most popular of these (as far as I know).
4. The reason I want a remake is because MI3 doesn't work well on newer computers. I bought it, and it worked poorly. Terrible textures, voice, and everything. Sadly, when it is run on a Win98, it runs beautifully. I don't even want a whole bunch of new features, just a port to newer computers.
5. I didn't think the story was half bad. I thought the graphics were below par.
6. As for the Monkey Combat, if you will recall, one of the most memorable parts of the original Monkey Island was the insult sword fighting (and not just to me, I've talked to several Monkey Island players and most of them regard that to be their favorite part of the game). The thing is, after MI1, it left the series quickly. Monkey Combat was an unsuccessful attempt to bring that sort of gameplay back into the MI series. As for the Medical Charts thing, I have no idea. Seriously, that was weird.

its been a very long time since i played MI4. unfortunately, i dont remember....wait, scratch that, its just now coming back to me...sort of. i'm talking about the medical charts. i forget what the puzzle was with those. all i remember is it was a weird puzzle. for the life of me, though, i cannot remember what had to be done with them...other then find them and obtain them.

about a remake...i would really love to see MI4 be done as a 2d...but with the same story and puzzles, just change it back to 2d.

on a completely unrelated is amazing just how often i think about the Goodsoups from MI3
