Very good points you've brought up there Mick AKA.
I especially like the idea of another Monkey Island in pre-rendered 2D images in Donkey Kong Country style
Loved all the 2D Monkey Island games, finished them all and would do it again. The 3D version came along i.e. Escape From Monkey Island
and I believe I played it for half-an-hour maximum before loosing interest. Never touched it since
DKC, that game was so ground breaking IMHO. I remember when it first came out, I purchase this for my SNES and was absolutely blown away
In fact that's one of my main reasons for doing the SNES DVD
