Summary: Let's just run down the good and the bad. The writing in Gray Matter is excellent and the plot is intriguing and very well put, as expected of Jane Jensen's work. You can't easily guess what will happen next. The soundtrack is very atmospheric and memorable, voice acting is of high quality for most characters, and rendered backgrounds and ambient animation are very well executed.
Summary: Far from perfection, this is a game that was made for for fans of old school adventure games. i.e. me. Every moment playing this game brought me back to the old days. Grey Matter reminds me allot of the Gabriel Knight & Broken Sword series and the experience is just as good. Fantastic visuals, wonderful writing, deep and well thought out character and talented voice acting. Why don't I score this higher?
Summary: It took so long to download that I went over my minutes and had no internet for the rest of the month. No prob. I changed my plan and got rid of my air card. Thanks ATT for annoying me into saving money.
Summary: Excellent! Download went perfectly, installation went perfectly. I now have spent over 9 hours playing it and I LOVE it!!! The reason why I did not give this game a 5 star rating is I'm a long time fan of the Myst series games. In the Myst games you need to take copious notes and maps. In the Myst games there are frustrating puzzles to work out.
Summary: That message is all I've seen of this game because it doesn't function on my Windows 8 64 bit gaming PC. Many others are having the same problem as you can verify with a Google search. The current solution is to turn off certain security features of the Windows OS. The developer ought to issue a patch but hasn't, nor has the community created one. For now, I recommend you pass on this game. Amazon did promptly issue me a refund.
Summary: I enjoyed Jensen's legendary Gabriel Knight series. The first is one of the best point-and-click adventures of its generation and the second is probably the best full-motion video adventure ever made, so I was really looking forward to Gray Matter--her first big adventure in many years. I was not disappointed. Gray Matter revolves around two playable characters, Samantha Everett and Dr. David Styles.
Summary: I read a couple of complaints about the game, about the character walking very slow. I thought the same thing, till i discovered you can rapidly double click the mouse pointer to where you want your character to go. She will run to the location or it will just send you directly to the location.It varies from where your at i guess. Remember just double click one time because it looks like its not going to work at first but it does.
Summary: Gray Matter is a wonder for those of us who have missed Jane Jensen so dearly. Her pacing in the Gabriel Knight series was always impeccable, allowing for one to be creeped out without freaking out as some of the other "horror" adventure games might do, and while that is slightly lacking in Gray Matter, for the most part, fans won't be disappointed.
Summary: Being a Gabriel Knight fan, I was very happy to come across this game by Jane Jensen. Enjoyed the puzzles and the characters (sequel please). Plus the music. Games like these require patience and when stuck, take a break. Think what else you haven't tried, and return with a fresh set of eyes. Looking forward to more Jane Jensen games, esp. GK4? (hopefully).
