    Personally, I mainly hate how some of the characters look (Guybrush mainly, really), and a few backgrounds look really bad, but most of the backgrounds are pretty good and the water effect is gorgeous. To me, the main improvement the SE brought is in the music, which is awesomely redone, especially the SCUMM bar song and the violin tune on the ghost ship.

    Water was gorgeous? It looked like it was captured from a bathtub. Not an ocean. MI2 SE had far better water effects. The graphics in MI1 SE were better but were a bit washed out. They lacked detail. Voice acting was perfect though.

    Not enough variation in the poll answers. I don’t dislike the graphics in SMI:SE, but I wouldn’t go as far as to call them [b]fantastic[/b]

    I voted “horrible”. I actually rather like the style (except for Guybrush’ hair), but they did a really shoddy job. In that respect, the MI2 SE was much better.

      Hi Haggis. I dunno, I like them both. Of course the old one for nostagia, and the new, there are some cool things. Be glad to have an SE. This days adventure games are pretty dead

      • Haggis says:

        Oh, I’m glad there’s an SE of SMI at all, but in some places they just messed up, where pixels from the old backgrounds show up in the new ones and things like that. If they’d just tried a bit harder (and fixed Guybrush’ hair), it would have been great.

  5. Irishmile says:

    I am “OK” with them… some of it is pretty sloppy. But I do not hate it.

    I was after all one of the people responsible for that love it or hate it hair mod that went around the MI sites a while back.
