With an article over at Kotaku asking about the chances of a new Monkey Island game done by the original creators (apparently Dave doesn't count), there are actually a lot of comments that seem to show a lot of hatred to TellTale Games and Tales of Monkey Island from the community, which I'm actually surprised at:
[quote]I never got into the Telltale installments of "Monkey Island", since the visuals are really.. well, they are not that good (to say it in a polite way) and I read much about the games being too easy.[/quote]
[quote]Yeah i bought the Telltale Monkey Island series on the principle of supporting Monkey Island, played about halfway through the first installment and haven't been back to it. The sub par visual quality is what really let that "Tales" series down and i just couldn't get past it.
I also bought the first MI:SE on principle of supporting more MI games in the future, I tried playing the updated version and hated it, the animation (i know they wanted to keep it the same as the old version but it just didn't work) and the character design were some of the worst I've witnessed considering the wealth of original source material to draw from. MI2:SE is a marked improvement but still, I'd love to see a fresh new adventure game from the original creators, Monkey Island or not.[/quote]
[quote]I concur. The game is good though the graphics aren't, imo. It just seems genetic esp how most of the characters use the same polygon base.
It isn't just MI, but also Sam and Max.[/quote]
[quote]Even though i bought it and tried playing it, in my mind I'd just rather forget they put that 'Tales' series out.[/quote]
[quote]Yeah, but honestly for me it did not feel like an authentic Monkey Island game play and visually wise,[/quote]
[quote]What about TellTale?
[quote]The people thinking that the Tales of Monkey Island' quality is remotely close to the two originals are strange.[/quote]
[quote]I'd love to see them do a new Monkey Island full length game. No offense to the episodic one, it was good, but it did not compare to the originals (and the best IMHO was the 3rd game, Curse of Monkey Island).[/quote]
