Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I thought the 1st episode looked great. I'm not sure where you get the idea the game looks bland? I think maybe your nostalgia for Curse may be clouding your judgment. I agree the 2D art can have a stylistic and beautiful quality to it and curse is a good example of that. Maybe if you went back and played curse now though your judgement wouldn’t be so harsh. I think your complaint is more about the style of artwork differences between 2D and 3D. The look is the same, but 2D gives off a more cartoon look then 3D can. I do think it would be nice to have 2d style graphics again and also I hate having to move the character around, but those are minor complaints. Tales is just as worthy a part of the Monkey island series as 1 ,2 and 3 are.
As for the ‘stupid dialog and puzzles’ I found all of the dialog and puzzles exactly in line with previous Monkey games. It sounds like you got it in your head early on to dislike the game and that
has corrupted your enjoyment of it from there on out. I thought it was great.
Its obvious you never played Escape from Monkey Island
