I still can't deal with the giant monkey head being a robot in EMI. And since we already have an pretty good 3D in the tales, there's only two things left for a remake of EMI: controls (point'n'click) and ... the story. ^^

I'm really happy with the special editions, though. The music is fabulous, and the whole game has lost nothing of its flair. Sometimes I can't decide between old style and new style graphics. It would have been cool to add the voicing to the old style in SoMI:SE, too, however.

While I think the Special Editions did a really great job in updating the original games so that a new generation could enjoy them without the peer pressure of being ridiculed for liking something so old decrepit, I do prefer the VGA originals....especially the one I first played on the Amiga with the text descriptions of items.

Maybe I'm just overly nostalgic.

Nah, you're right. I even listen to the Amiga soundtrack sometimes. But what they did with the MI2 soundtrack is simply amazing.

I've just realised, I mixed my VGA and Amiga, I fancy another Amiga, I really do, I tried playing on one at the North East Retro Gaming event on Sunday and it was knacked. Everything else worked though, which was pleasing.
