In my humble opinion, This is great example, a great standard(Etalon) of how to do remakes-re'release(of old games)
or how they should be!
Recipe is = pure love to the original+painstaking attention to every details+diligence+good talents/taste.
If only in someday, someone, will make a remake in the same way for DUNE(1993)...mmmm ;)
upd: oh, and simon sorcerer 2, will be awesome too!)
on topic, about the game:
Monkey Island 2 - is that case, when people say "quality, proven by time". Still great music, not bad dialogues, good design of locations and the main - good adventure spirit...in one word, still enjoyable! Even for newcomers, i think
so much flashbacks.. ;D
PS: Also i recommend to check...hm no..not recommend...you Must check Deponia! Rufus(protagonist of D) - is just Guybrush Threepwood's brother in dystopian future, itself xD
