I want to see Monkey island back in 2D, you can go everywhere on the screen whereas in mi4 you turn round when you reached the edge of the area, if it was to stay in 3d it must allow to walk anywhere on the screen. Oh yeah but I did like the way you could run in mi4 so in 2D you may lose that, but I want 2d back, the style of mi and mi2 would be okay, but tweak the graphics up.

Come on people! MI is much much better in 3D! We are living in the year 2001, so 2D would be a laugher! MI5 MUST stay in 3D, the layout in 3d is much much better then in 2D!

Probably the only complaints I had about Monkey Island 4 graphically were

-low poly-count characters (which can be fixed)
-low-rez textures (which can be fixed)
-pre-rendered and real-time shadows didn't blend at all (it should be able to be fixed)
-some clipping

Really, that was about it.

I must admit, I think that in most cases, 3D animation in computer games is highly overrated. I would not complain if MI5 was 2D. However, the part of MI4 that proved the most difficult for me to adjust to was not the 3D, but the total lack of mouse control. I was able to more or less get used to using keyboard only, but I did prefer the mouse control of MI3.

AFish01
05-13-2001, 09:02 AM
There is no way that MI5 would be made in 2D Lucasarts have a massive audience in the US now and by changing it backl to 2d they might loose that audience so 3D is here to stay whether you like it or not.
Personally I loved the scumm engine games they were much better than the grime engine which was used for EfMI

I would like it monkey island 3 type with the blend of 3d graphics and 2d cartoon animations....personally i think 2d is funnier then 3d and i am 15 years old so i am still with the young generation........I guess the creator want to make games in 3d because of coolgraphics and keeping up with technology....3d is good in shot em ups and other stuff like that but not in adventure games like MI

PinkPig
07-07-2001, 05:02 PM
I think a 3D engine will be the best for MI5, but it will need to be tweaked, to make it easier to find items. Also stop a rather stupid thing that just stops you walking some ways for (apparently) no reason.

I think it would be cool if they left it in 3D but kind of gave it a 2D look to it. It would give it a newage retro look.

I for one, do not want to go back to pixelized softwared 2D graphics. 3D can be used in an adventure games. Lucasarts is new to this. Actually I can only think of a couple of 3D adventure games off the top of my head. So cut them some slack. Think of them as pioneers...

I wouldn't care if it were 3D or 2D but please give me back my mouse control. In EMI I seem to spend so much time fiddling about with directional keys with Guybrush running in completely the wrong direction. I think the whole game is slowed up by the fact that Guybrush has to walk right up to objects before you can find out whether he can interact with them. In CMI you could move the cursor around the room and know this in advance.

Make it like The Longest Journey... perfect example of successful use of 3D with a mouse. But of course, 2D works too... only not in 2003 (when MI5 will be out?). How many newcomers would buy MI5 if it had outdated graphics?

Any of y'all played Jet Grind Radio for the Dreamcast?

Cel-shaded 3D is the answer.

Not only would it give the characters the nice cartoony 2D look, while allowing for the smooth motion of 3D animation and 3D gameplay mechanics, but I hear it makes rendering faster (good for lower-end machines).

And yes, mouse control would be great. It could be easily done in 3D.

A fully 2D SCUMM game is just not gonna happen in this day and age.

I wont buy MI 4 because it's in 3D and I wont buy MI 5 if it is too. So there. LucasArts is digging it's own grave right now. They need go to go back to the roots that made them huge in the first place, stop trying to compete with the others with this 3D nonsense, it's subtracting from the quality. I'm sure alot of you people raving for 3D weren't there in the beginning, crying with the best of us when those fireworks went off standing next to Elaine after spraying LeChuck with a bottle of root beer. Those were the days.

I agree entirely that there is no going back from 3D to 2D. Lucasarts also has to appeal to new buyers. Personally I would LOVE to see another Monkey Island in 2D, but that is only a nostalgic wish. Most people are disappointed due to the fact that Monkey Island has CHANGED. The atmosphere and the characters were so well drawn and conceived, because they focused and had to focus on story events and character development. I think 3D works for adventure games, but not for Monkey Island. Lucasarts should quit making new Monkey Sequels and create another adventure that fits to 3D. I think Indiana Jones would look great in 3D as a classic adventure game(not action). If people feel like 2D was better I can only suggest to play again M1 and M2. You can never get bored of them. So that is just my opinion. Thanks for reading this http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

You know there can be a MI-5 with 3D improved graphics!

Just because some of you guys don't have a cool computer that supports cool 3D graphics doesn't mean that you have to encourage the making of a old fashioned 2D game! Of course it would go faster! BUT there's absolutely no WAY LucasArts would make a 2D after a 3D!

NEVER!!! No respected company would make that!

I personally liked Monkey Island 3 the best because I prefer the cartoonish style of the game. It is the same with Kings Quest 7 if anyone has ever played that. But too many people think that turning Monkey island into 3D is making the game to different from the originals. But 3D only makes the game even better. Think about it... it makes all the envirements richer in detail and gives you more of a feeling that you could get into the game. I just hope people look at all the different pros and cons before they really think which one is better then the other.

Bobbin
12-05-2001, 09:50 PM
Well I don't mind the 3D ness as half as much as much as no mouse support. I will buy the game regardless of 2D or 3D but I like the point and click 2D style probably the best. One thing people should realize about adventure games is that graphics are not that important. What makes adventure games so enjoyable is the plot, story, characters and settings. Why do you think adventure games made in the late 80's are still enjoyble to play today because of the gret stories. I know I'd much rather play Maniac Mansion or Loom or Secret of Monkey Island over almost all new games today. Another thing LucasArts should not be about following the trends and doing what's popular. They should make games for those who really care about their games not just to make the most money.

So I vote 2D all the way

12-07-2001, 09:09 PM
I agree with the general idea, the gameplay has been lost with 3D, but I think it would be solved by keeping it in 3D but using the point and click interface. The gameplay has not been lost through the graphics, but by the change of the movement interface. But I think the most suitable graphics are still the pixilated 1991 stuff.

2d would be good because u can fit more puzzles in instead of takin up loads of memory on the graphics but it would have to be as good as monkey3s graphics or better

I vote for 2D!!!
Handdrawn graphics add much more to the atmosphere than 3D-rendered Images do.

...just my opinion...

Monkey Island 4 was good, but I preferred it when it was 2-D. It worked much better

I vote for NO MI5. And Technically speaking any movement in the 3D world does add the element of time (let's say a character MOVING) making it technically 4D - However you will always have to see it on a 3D monitor (2D screen that refreshes).

Who said there's better detail in 3d? better than MI1 and 2, yeah, but definitely not better than MI3. the 3d in MI4 is so wooden, the characters are all polygonal. What's with that stupid grin Guybrush has plastered onto his face all the way through MI4? it's so annoying. the energy/memory put into making an object 3d is all that's done, they never actually put detail into it because they think the fact that it's 3d is enough to satisfy players. well it isn't! the only detail in 3d is shading. and the fact that you can walk around it. the detail sure as HECK (pardon my language) isn't better in the 3d game, that much is obvious.

Keep the monkey island fashion going and make it 2D! I agree.
I mean if they're going to make a monkey island in 3D, at least make it the best in graphics. I got an idea. Anyone here played Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus ? Well look at the movies in it. They are better than Shrek's graphics. Even though it was a cool movie. But in Oddworld, they make sure that they include every detail. Have a look!

They could work the aspect of two-dimensions into the plot:
Pirates all over the Tri-Island area are losing their third dimension, becoming 2 dimensional. Guybrush has to find the cure. While to suit your request of having the whole game in 2D, one or two islands could have progressed enough to be entirely 2D.

2d is bettr, but if they do it in 2d theyll loose the audience theyve gained. shame, but if they put it in 3d theres more chance of more games coming out.

In my opinion MI5 should be in 2D like CMI as it was much easier to handle.
In CMI the backgrounds were lovely (-->the mill on blood island)

Of course we want 2D. Bring back 2D and they will get lots of money.

Monkey Island is a great series, but there is NO DOUBT that parts 3 and 4 were nothing compared to parts 1 and 2.

2D LIVES!!!!!!

A brand new Monkey Island game in the old 2D style would be a dream come true.

To the game developers: You don't have to follow the trends of today. You don't have to make a game 3D. I for one am pretty tired of all the generic looking 3d games. Monkey Island is a game that should be 2D. It was perfect just the way it was. So please, do us hardcore fans a favor and bring back the glory days of 2D gaming. You'll sell a lot more copies... guaranteed. I'll buy 2! ;)

And if you don't believe me that 2D is desired, just check out the sales of Gameboy Advance. It's done extremely well. Why? because it allows people to relive some of the greatest 2d games ever. And that's what it's all about.

As I see it most of those who can vividly remember the release of The Secret of Monkey Island(tm) think that 2D rulz.
They are melancholic.
In my opinion melancholia rockz.

BACK TO THE ROOTS!

I think it would be better, and by better I mean more sutible to the series, MI4 was alright but it lacked something, the graphics aren't the main problem, the problem is there is no Ron Gilbert, the end of MI2 could lead so many ways and it just isn't right to have MI3 written by anyone other than Ron, MI3 was great, but it wasn't the same.

Joshi

you know, you can ask and ask, but no matter how many times you ask (and believe me i've tried) i don't think ron will come back. and thata's a real downer considering he had plans for an MI3 which wasn't what it is now, and now we'll never know what they were. sad really.

2D all the way! It'll bring back some of the old charm of the first 3 :D


oh... and i do come to wonder how most of the ppl that posted in this thread have only ever posted once or twice, and ONLY ever in this thread...

just seems a lil dodge to me
