It's hard to tell just how much these films have been altered without a side by side comparison, but overall it looked to me like a lot of the lighting and colour had been changed. Some of the explosions and blast effects look all new to me. The sound effects sound amazing to me, but it seems like the music has dropped down in the mix again, although that could be my crappy TV.
I don't know how new this is but I saw a Dug walk through Jabba's palace. I thought that Yoda was a big improvement in the phantom menace, and I see they replaced some of the shots of him in AOTC.
I'm normally a purist, but I actually quite liked that new Krayt dragon call.
One of the downsides for me was the sloppy job on restoring the lightsabres, In some places it's good, but why fix some bits and not others? In places it just looks lousy. I think that scene where luke is fighting the vader apparition on Dagobah looks like a total balls up.
