Great game - I have a comp account at Steam and have played virtually everything and the new MI editions are absolutely classic. New and old combined in an excellent mix.

So does Steam leave any kind of app running or resident DRM type app on your system when you are not using it? I do not want to load my system with crapware.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Is this Monkey Island like Hugo House of Horrors?
The original Monkey Island wasn't like Hugo's House of Horrors, so I don't know what you're talking about. (The Hugo games used a text parser, but almost everything from Lucasarts has been point and click.)

I'm tempted to buy this just to show my support for future adventure game releases, but I think I'll just buy Riddick from Direct2Drive instead. :razz: (I mean, I have my original MI 1&2 CD within arm's reach as I type this!)

No, you can close the Steam client when you're not using it. It's not the greatest app (it can be really slow sometimes), but it behaves itself.

To play your Steam purchased games, the Steam client must be running and you must be connected to the internet for verification on the Steam servers. (However, if you're not going to be connected to the internet, you can put the client in 'offline mode' instead. Keep in mind that it will still require a once every so often connect for verification though, even if you choose that mode.) Not playing the games? Feel free to close the client. It doesn't have any sort of terminate and stay resident behaviour. The DRM that Steam employs is wrapped in the executable file of each game, nothing more. If you choose to uninstall the client for some reason, it wipes itself out completely, leaving nothing (not even the games) behind.

Steam doesn't install any software beyond the client and the games you choose to download. It's spyware, crapware, adware and virus free. The DRM it wraps on the executable file is as unintrusive as DRM can possibly be.

All that was the long answer. In short, Steam is quite safe!

Edit: Oh yes, and the game in question is awesome, especially if you're a fan of point and click adventure games. This game is identical to the original, and you can choose to play it with the new graphics and sound, or the old. You can switch between them at any time during the game too, which is neat. The only thing removed as far as I can tell was the old style "you need the manual to find the right line" copy protection scheme. Well worth the five bucks. :)

I'm like you, too, and hate that. I have Steam and it is A-OK in my books. Just change the default from "start with windows" and its ready to roll.

Some titles install extra DRM, eg. GTA4 through Steam, but they are few and far between.

WOW! That was soooo my price point for this game... Well worth it for this classic. Thanks for the tip OP!

Would've loved to play this on my PS3 in 1080P but nooooooo they had to only do it for the XBOX360 and PC download. Guess I got what I want in the end!
