Okay. I loved this chapter. I think it's the best chapter of MI since MI2. It's the first chapter I've played without a walkthrough since CMI. Everything about it was great...
except the end.
I love the story and I love what happened, but we have this GREAT sequence of the pox being eradicated with great graphics (though could have used more music), and then we have LeChuck returning, building up to what should be a great great cliffhanger, and storywise it is.
Earl Boen is back and gets... two weirdly recorded lines? People have been asking for this and should be screaming YES! when they hear the familiar voice, but we didn't even get a signature "Yarrr!". Also his new ultra poxed form is exactly the same, no great transformation sequence, and then, without any music or dramatic cinematography like the previous sequences, Elaine just goes to clash swords, and we are left only with the ambient forest music. It all just fell flat for me. Also the music in the whole episode was really oddly quiet, I had to lower the sound and voice volumes to hear it properly.
Hopefully we'll get some prime CMI style Earl Boen back in Chapter 5 and more of Michael Lands epic music, hopefully in all the right spots.
