It's a remake and very loyal to the original, so it's no surprise that there's that guy talking about Loom. Old Sierra remakes (in the early 90's) changed few jokes here and there, but nothing major. And because I haven't seen other remakes of the adventure games, besides those Sierra ones, I assumed that SMI:SE would resemble those and just be "graphics and sound patch" to the original game. And it seems that I was right with my expectations. I don't know what you expected when game did cost less than 10€ and was advertised as remake.
I wouldn't worry too much what new players think, but most feedback I have heard has been positive.
