Only had time to play it for about an hour or so, but so far I quite like it! They've done a great job in updating the graphics, with backgrounds that still remind you of the original game, but look a lot sharper of course. The 3D look of the characters takes some getting used to, but the animation is of a better quality than eg in Moebius (loved that game, but felt the animation wasn't the greatest
). Also, you have the soundtrack now in much higher quality and it sounds utterly fantastic! The voice acting is also better than I was expecting. Of course, it's not of the same high level of the original (which is imho one of THE best voice casts ever in a video game), but it gets the job done. Oh, and the new narrator voice is actually better than the original, which I used to turn off because she spoke sooooo slowly.
And then most importantly of course, the gameplay!
I was happy to find that everything that made the original so great is still intact. I like the pie-menu that you get now when you click on something, displaying all the different options that are possible (eg open, use, take, ...). That way you don't have to guess anymore which action to use, but it is still reminiscent of the old interface. So far it looks like I'm thoroughly gonna enjoy this remake, and I'm curious about the new gameplay and puzzles they said they had put in!
