I now this topic has sorta been done before, but that didn't include EMI. Now, I think it's fair to re-assess the topic with EMI included. So, without further ado (ado, ado!), rate the four MI games, in your opinion, from best to least-best.

I haven't played the first two http://www.escapemi.com/forums/redface.gif I only recently converted as an adventure gamer by TLJ.

Anyway after I finished EMI, I think it's better than CMI, I dunno, maybe it's just because I just finished EMI http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

1. Monkey Island 2 - LeChuck's Revenge
1. The Secret of Monkey Island
2. Curse of Monkey Island
2. Escape from Monkey Island

Personally, I don't think EMI and CMI should be compared to SMI and LCRm because their in 2 different time-periods. SMI and LCR came almost at the same time, with only one of two years between. Curse an Escape doesn't have very big a gap either. I don't thik MONKEY 1 or 2 would sell much if they would be released for the first time today. Of course--- I would buy them ;-)

the only games with class is Monkey 1 & 2, but the others are good too.

Chucky
01-13-2001, 08:23 AM
yeh, well I reckon Escape's the best, not that I've played the first two. are they any good?

Jos kiddin'!

Seriously though, Ron Gilbert *was* monkey island. MI1 was the first proper PC game I bought, and it blew me away. And the sequel was one of those rare things; a new installment which built on the back of the previous one, and improved the formula.

Alarm bells started ringing when the new producers for MI3/4 were interviewed about their style of humour and said "Yeah, we're big fans of 'The Kids in The Hall'."

Curse was a huge letdown after the first 2, and with Escape, Lucasarts have just come over all Sierra, commercialised and missing the point: Guybrush and Elaine's 'relationship', his character, the in-jokes.... Oh! It makes me cry.

They've really raped the arse of this licence. Either bring back RG, or let MI RIP.

Sorry if you like the last2. But it's like having a dead friend dug up and dressed as a bunny girl.

Chucky
01-13-2001, 08:28 AM
And another thing.........

Quality control has gone waaaaaaay downhill in these games. Have you seen the 1.1 patch?
It's not just for glitches, but on a lot of machines you actually need to download it to complete certain puzzles!

And even that hasn't fixed my crash - I'm waiting for L/arts Tech support to get back to me, as it crashes during the chess game.

moan, moan, moan.

I agree with you wholeheartedly Chucky, but what is wrong with the humor of "The Kids in the Hall"? Do you just think it wouldn't apply to MI or it just isn't funny. I'll agree with you that a lot of the humor of Kids is physical, but I think a lot of it would work good in a game like MI. They use a lot of irony and they are very good at poking fun at pop culture. I think they took the worst of Kids and put it in the games, not the best.

here it goes...

*MI2- Loved the whole storyline and plot, and by far the funniest of all MI games

*CMI- loved the graphics and the inclusion of voices was great


*SMI- Its ok still think Guybrush was gay in this game (just by looking at him)

*EMI- still liked it but didn't like Monkey Combat or using the keyboard to control Guybrush... ended up walking into things, and I still don't get the ending... WTF was all that about?

Still I'd rather CMI graphics (and voices)but a screen setup like SMI and MI2, I like point and click Guybrush. Next game (if there is a game) no more damn using the keyboard, next time I think I'm gonna really hurt Guybrush (specially since I nearly made him walk off the cliff on Malee Island) and no more Monkey Combat- I'd rather sword fighting or arm wrestling (and let us learn the insults)

I`d say:
LCR
CMI/EMI
SMI
What`s so bad with 3D. I like it, and the Curse look is awesome. I guess this could be because I didn`t get any bugs in EMI, but still...

I think, it's NCC 1701-E. When Picard goes to warpspeed at warp factor nine. They met the Borg and got assimilated and Picard said PHASERS at the vessal because he is a heart of stone!

Cyberlazer, why don't you stop posting on our forums and use your time wisely. For example, you could learn personal hygiene, talk to the opposite sex for once, wean yourself off your mother's breastmilk or how to stop wetting your bed. Furthermore, you could stop loving Star Trek and join the human race for just a brief moment. I don't think you should post here anymore. A certain level of maturity is required to talk to sophisticated gamers such as ourselves.

By the way, how is your mom doing? She was good to me last night.

01-22-2001, 08:57 PM
I absolutely agree, after seeing cyberlazer and warpspeed replies they are really immature people and must be stopped! I think already the moderate has put an end to this and ban them.
Anyway, good one Dinghy Dog! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

SEE THE STATISTICS: (from your 27 answers)

The Best:
Secret 25%
Revenge 51% !!!
Curse 15%
Escape 9%

The Worst:
Secret 18%
Revenge 15%
Curse 9%
Escape 57% !!!

ESCAPE IS "THE MORE WORST" AND "LESS BEST"
IT´S CLEAR. AND:
REVENGE IS "THE MORE BEST" BUT...
CURSE IS "THE LESS WORST" !!!

HOW DO YOU SEE THIS RESULTS?

StarEye said:
"I don't thik MONKEY 1 or 2 would sell much if they would be released for the first time today." I think MONKEY 3 or 4 wouldn´t have sell much if 1 and 2 wouldn´t never happened

By the way, the most common opinion was: 2,1,3,4 (7 times)

But, even so, my opinion:
2,3,1,4
