Excerpt: A very good adventure from Jane Jensen, not as good as the Gabriel Knight adventures are, but some good puzzles, a decent storyline, a good musical score, and interesting use of magic. Definitely worth a rental of anyone who enjoys puzzles and/or adventure games.
Conclusion: There aren't many games like this around on xbox or playstaion. It makes a change to finally have a strategy game thats not pc only. A good few hours gameplay. Enough puzzles to solve and a good story behind it. Looking forward to more games like this. You'll enjoy this if you liked Sherlock Holmes.
Summary: Gray Matter is Jane Jensen's (of Gabriel Knight fame) latest point and click
adventure. It centers around 2 protagonists; Samantha Everett a street
magician, and Professor David Styles a neuro-biologist with a tragic past. Although point and click adventures are traditionally PC-centric and more
suited to mouse and keyboard controls, Gray Matter has been skillfully ported to
the Xbox 360. The radial menu for interacting with environments greatly
simplifies things and...
Summary: Awesome game if you have been missing a good adventure title. If you're tired
of mindless games and you'd like to see if you still have a brain to solve a
great mystery, have a go at this game. Everytime you think you have it figured out, something happens to prove you
wrong. Well worth playing. Easy achievement points to be made as well. And if
you're worried about getting stuck at different points, there are walkthroughs
online I've seen.
Excerpt: Gray Matter è un avventura grafica con trama scritta dall'autrice Jane Jensen, in cui vestirete i panni di una giovane maga prestigiatrice chiamata Sam (Samantha) che per un caso del destino si ritroverà ad approdare in una casa dall'aspetto spettrale abitata da personggi a dir poco ambigui. Fin dall'inizio si può apprezzare l'atmosfera di mistero che pervade la villa e non solo, il tutto accompagnato da colonne sonore azzeccate e trama ben intrecciata.
Pros: Ambientazione dark, tematiche di gioco innovative . . .
Cons: . . . ma sfruttate appena . Filmati realizzati mediante slide con disegni .
