I think im more interested in the updated original to be honest.. hope they havnt butchered it... i dont like when games that really worked in their basic 2d or semi 3d format are turned into full on 3d games...hope it isnt butchered!

They had what they were billing as a "pretty final" version at E3. It had very shitty new artwork (the portrait screens are butchered beyond belief) and the dub, re-recorded soundtrack, and refined interface is ONLY available if you play with the new shitty graphics.

You can, of course, play it in pure old school mode. Which isn't well designed for the gamepad, and is badly fitted to the screen so it's ugly and distorted. Basically, a considerably worse experience than the original. There is no ability to mix and match which new features you want. This makes the whole release a waste in my eyes, because I don't want to play it in either mode. I'll just go play it in SCUMMVM.

Yeah, the iPhone version of SCUMMVM is quite awesome. The Wii version is also quite good.
