This was my favorite game growing up, and yet I never knew that Green was Reverend
Green. My world has been rocked.
And they could have maybe made Mrs. Peacock and Mrs. White more appealing to play so the girls don't have to fight over Miss Scarlet, you know?
When I was little, I totally fought my friends/cousins/family/whatnot tooth and nail
to be Ms. Scarlet. Part of it was that, at the time, my favorite color was red, but mostly, she just looked the coolest. I think Mrs. Peacock could use an upgrade, because I firmly believe that she has badass potential hidden in there somewhere. I like that she's from a political family, but, come on. Give the lady some intrigue. I also agree that it would be nice if Mrs. White wasn't so Gary Coleman (sorry, he's my default when it comes to child stars).
And, as far as I'm concerned, Plum and Mustard not having their correct titles is blasphemy.
I... sort of like the observatory? Yes, it's illogical and seems out of place amongst the other changes, but it sort of placates me in light of losing all of the "interesting", "spooky" mansion rooms, which were a huge part of the initial appeal to me.
The only new weapon I like is poison. I want my revolver back, damn it! I thought that thing was the cat's meow as a six-year-old.
In short, I think this has cute potential, but they're going about it all wrong, and I agree with pretty much everything you said.Edited at 2008-08-29 02:02 am (UTC)
