Grim Fandango

Thunderbolt Games
14 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The beauty of the afterlife is that we have no way of knowing whether it exists, what it’s like and whether it’s worth seeing. Grim Fandango’s version is the Land of the Dead, a world of art deco styling with a heavy sense of noir in the air. And if this is the afterlife we’re destined for, it’s definitely worth sampling.

Grim Fandango

Adventure Classic Gaming
1 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Grim Fandango is a classic that is not only among the greatest adventure games ever made but also among the greatest stories ever told. It is rare for a game to maintain an everlasting eminence such that it can still best more contemporary titles year after year. Indeed, there are only a few games that, no matter how old, can sustain the quality or appeal that goes far beyond what the game industry churns out since then. Grim Fandango is such a game.

Grim Fandango by Becky

GameBoomers
29 June 2002
  • Excerpt: Frankly, I waited a long time to buy Grim Fandango because I was put off by the game box. The art on the box looks so stylized and the game's vision so intensely personal as to seem almost freakish. I mean, a game about skeletons? Still, I know of gamers who think that Grim is the Last Great adventure game -- plus Grim has consistently placed near the top on the GameBoomers annual Twisty Lists.

  • Conclusion: Overall, it is amazing how much gameplay is packed onto the game’s two CD-ROMS. Grim Fandango will take the average gamer between 40 and 50 hours to play, less experienced gamers more. Talk about value, the game retails for between $9.95 for just the game and jewel case to upwards of $45 for the complete package. Plus, with only two CD-ROMS, the amount of disk swapping is limited.

Don't Fear the Reaper

GIN

  • Excerpt: Lucas Arts' Grim Fandango already earned some lauds from other gaming publications and I hate to be the one to tarnish what may become another Myst. Grim Fandango does contain a captivating atmosphere with a certain film noir meets Antonio Banderas quality. My primary complaint stems not from the remarkable interface or the ambiance or even the general plot. Believe me, the music, a jazz soundtrack, is nearly enough to warrant buying this title.
