Well, of course it was just my opinion, and I have a deep respect for anybody with a different one!

But that aside, I feel that these Monkey Island remakes have included so many changes that it has been hard to me to identify the "spirit" of the original games. I guess it is a matter of nostalgia, however, and a player that wanted to play Monkey Island for the first time would prefer the new remake for sure.

I would say that I like the new HD - Monkey Island as an individual game, but I am not sure about how to rate it as a remake. I don't know if this sentence is understandable, but that's the best way I have to express my thoughts.
