    For a 2D point and click adventure that fit onto a couple of floppydisks not too long that version seems quite demanding.

    Bought this literally the minute it went up on Xbox Live.

    Just remember… you should never pay more than 20 bucks for a video game. Good to see that LucasArts respecting such an age old mantra.

    Yeah, I’m enjoying the HD makeover with voice work. Bought it on xbox live this morning and downloading on steam just now for a bit of a comparison. Sad thing is, i know all the puzzles from memory so the magic is lost already. ah well, it’s still MI.

    @Michael: Monkey Island 1 was 120 Deutsche Mark back in the day, which would be by todays means EUR60. (As forever noted in the first few words of that game.)

    Had a blast with it today, been a fan since the original and im currently 23rd in the world! Yay! (Although im bound to become in the 10000′s in a few days lol).

    My only complaint is that it doesn’t fit the screen whilst in 1080p =[

    I'd also love to play the classic mode in full screen, but still being able to use the HD's clicking system =[

    But I still Love it and also like the teaser! =]
