It was a little harsh – I love a couple of UBISoft’s recent console games like Prince of Persia and Beyond Good and Evil.
An important thing that was mentioned though was that the Sierra name is just being used to slap on games to make them more appealing as a known quality brand to gamers which is wrong. In doing this they have/are diluting the Sierra name. The logo they have is crap compared to the “legacy” Sierra logo. If you treat a person like VU has the Sierra name you go to jail for a long, long time with all the other r*pists.
And developing a new Larry game with out Al Lowe on board is a terrible idea – look what happened to the Monkey Island series after Ron Gilbert left – it became a weak, pathetic parody of itself (in Escape From Monkey Island).
As far as I know, Zelda 64 was a new engine, not an enhancement of Mario 64. I’ve never heard that one – but I guess it shows what 3D has done to games – they all end up looking and playing like each other.
