Ok...most people seem to know, but for the mentally challenged and the intelligence impaired, here is why I think CMI is the best and EMI is (basically) the worst.

Why CMI is the best:

Murray was in it lots
Lechuck was the main villian, not some australian geezer
Sword fighting
Really funny
Really good plot
Most like a movie

Why is EMI (basically) the worst:

Often confusing and frusterating keyboard controls
Elaine's voice
Ozzie Mandril
Monkey Kombat
Gaping plot holes
Lack of Murray-ness
Stan's un-involvement/voice
The dumbest Climax I have ever seen (although CMI had little to offer here either)

Anybody have more? Anybody have reasonable argument as to why EMI is better than CMI?

Why EMI sucked more than CMI, more reasons:

-Guybrush runs errands for Elaine instead of pirating.
-Guybrush is more and more of a loser.
-Guybrush is a loser cause he never gets a weapon and KEEP it longer. (Then again, in CMI it was the same thing.)
-3D somehow doesn't seem to be "BETTER" than 2D.

Until they get enough technology to make 3d look really good (they're almost there), 2d will always look better.

Sa sti, ca n-am auzit niciodata un joc sa fie in patru dimensiuni. De fapt n-am auzit nici macar de patru dimensiuni. Ce crezi ca este a patra dimensiune?

Hey! Elaines voice was much better, Elaine can`t be british and guybrush american. Elaines voice is good in MI4, she didnt have many lines to say though.

Elaine was actually Cajun in CMI, although as both an Englishman and a Chicken (Chicken Cajun?), I was fooled.

well, english people were quite common in the carribbean back in that century (don't ask how i know) so elain was quite acurrate in comi. the complete change in emi was just stupid (another stupid thing in efmi):D

catually you're wrong. the reason i said "don't ask me how i know" is because i myself don't nkow how i know. it's just one of those things i picked up over the year and it just stayed with me. i do read quite a bit, but never in my life have i ever read a novel or textbook on pirates and so that little bit of knowledge didn't come from a book. if anything, it came from tv, which is where most of my knowledg comes from (which is also why up until the age of eight, i thought that anyone wearing glasses would instantly become a superhero upon taking them off and ripping open their shirt)

EMI sucks that's all there is to it.

Here are the reasons why CMI sucks:

* Cartoonish
* Guybrush's new personality.
* Elaine and Guybrush getting married
* LeChuck has lost his thril (crap style/voice...)
* The list continues...

i dunno, i thought comi was actually quite good, apart frtom the whole guybrush getting married and all, that shouldn't have happened, he should have had to keep chasing after elaine. but it was good, not as good as the first two, but good all the same. i mean, who could have anticipated vegetarian cannibals.:D

I hear that. The cartoony style was better than some blocky 3-D crap. And MI6 (no secret agent jokes, it means monkey island) should go back to hand drawn, with point and click and lots and lots of scenes with murray in them.

i mean monkey island 5, sry.

Elaines voice was exactly the same as Charity James's voice in Gabriel Knight 3. It worked really well with Grace but nor at all with Elaine.

What I thought was weird in CMI was that Elaine sounded like she was from England, but in EMI she sounded like a stressed out American. But then again, thats what she is.

Joshi

i think she was better english, i don't know why, the american one sounded too "residant evil", i liked it as more of a lara croft quality without the jumping, the shooting of the dogs and the jumping sideways whilst shooting the dogs thing. oh, and elain was much better than lara, but lara was better than MI4 elain because she was english, but not really. you know what, i have no idea what i'm talking about (and i'm damned if you know). but my point is, COMI Elain was much better than EFMI elain.
