For pretty much all of the late 90s there was a blind belief among game companies that ALL GAMES MUST BE 3D, or they will not sell, the companies will atrophy and die and be laughed at. Unfortunately, this was despite the fact that 3d graphics and accelerators were pretty immature, GOOD 3d artists were hard to find (and the game 3d production process was pretty new) and games looked much, much worse than they would have if they'd just stuck with more traditional methods for the time.
There were a number of games from this era that went 3d and were successful (and were actually a big reason why all the game companies started insisting on 3d for everything). Mario 64, for example, has pretty primitive 3d graphics by today's standards. But they're really well-done and appropriate, and I don't see any reason why that game should be remade.
Of course, I think I'm a little jaded because my graphics card when EMI came out was underpowered (I think I still had still had a Voodoo 2) and so the graphics were especially bad for me. Looking on it now they're probably not QUITE as bad as I remember. But still pretty bad. And combined with the horribleness of the rest of the game, it adds up to FAIL for a lot of us (not everyone!).

I don't think the graphics are as bad as some people say (though noticeably lower quality compared to other MI games), but I do think they could do with a bit of a clean-up, and perhaps a less clashy/garish colour palette. But if it was remade I expect the graphics would end up being completely replaced.
Boyd as Elaine would make me much happier. I just can't get used to her suddenly going American, and deeper. In a way, I think her Escape voice still suits her to some extent, and I'd probably be fine with it if it were the only MI game to have voice overs (that said, I think Boyd does a better job bringing out the character's personality).
Maybe an optional point-and-click/click-and-drag feature should be added too. They could keep the keyboard controls that are in the original game, but just have a mouse pointer as a second option for those who don't get along with the controls.
I'm not crazy; I'm sanely-challenged.
|emi not that bad actually, escape from monkey island, remake, you're gonna love it|
