For MI 5, I want a better steering than in MI 4. I think steer with the keyboard was to complicated. You have got used to it through the game, but I think a steering with the mouse is still better. The steering of MI 3 was the best steering of all.

I don't think it's called steering.

I think Guybrush walks much slower in CMI.

Yeah. Walking up the stairs to the Blood Island hotel, and around in Puorto Pollo is boring.

In CMI if you double-click a named location you automatically go there and thus saving time http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif (those who know this please ignore)

The majority of the time you can double-click he will automatically be there(you don't see him walk) but on a few occasions Storken is right, the screen is not big enough

in all fairness, I like point n click Guybrush better, maybe it's coz of what I'm used to, but trying to control Guybrush with the keyboard really got on my nerves, and with that sorta thing, it got really annoying, coz you had to use the keyboard to select stuff for Guybrush to look at or do something, and most of the time I couldn't get Guybrush to stand still for me to highlight the particular text, and more often or not Guybrugh would be the thing that would move, that's why I had so many problems with the Cannon bit, coz Guybrush kept moving and I didn't want him to and I couldnt highlight the appropriate thing like "throw boulder into left canel"

The keyboard control is pretty sluggish. I found myself using the shift (or whatever) key all the time to run, and getting out items, combining them, etc, was a hassle.

The mouse was MADE for adventure and strategy games (well, not really) and those are the games that really take advantage of it. The mouse makes it much easier. The only exception to this, IMO, is vehicle steering.

Piloting the log boat with the mouse would mess up the puzzle a bit.
