Note:
When I was taking an screenshots, I had a tears in my eyes. (In my opinion) this legendary game has been ruined by ugly and unprofessional art direction. If you look at the artworks closely, there are lots of problems and they look more like rough concepts. Shame on you team! and thanks for ruining such a great game experience. BTW: not sure if it was a good idea to give it back to original creators, Double Fine doesn't good job either. 
Those people forgot it's called Special Edition! so make it special!!
 Hopefully, hardcore fans will fix this!

  1. I remember buying the SE and wanting my money back. I found myself playing the classic mode more than the actual SE. Tales of Monkey Island had better art direction, why couldn't they get have some of the ToMI art team help out? Or make the smart decision to involve Lucasfilm Animation, which they've made one installment too late?
    One thing that makes me happy about Disney now owning LucasArts' intellectual properties is that Steve Purcell works in Pixar now, and Pixar has some close ties with Disney compared to the other companies owned by Disney... For all we know any new Monkey Island game will likely look stunning if only people will take the fact that they're part of a mega corporation to their advantage.
