    Story, charecter devolpment, acting and humor are all outstanding. What more do you want.

    Well the game is definitely a must buy for any adventurer. From story to character development to all the humor. One of Lucas Arts' best games. All the characters are very memorable, and the plot t...

    Tim Schafer does it again in another masterful, funny, witty story that raises the bar on point-and-click adventure.

    The point-and-click adventure, a genre virtually forgotten in this age of modern games. However, back in the day, these titles were showing up everywhere. You might think that because these games ...

    An excellent and epic game filled with emotion and humor that you will never forget.

    This game is great. I love the game, its characters, and the theme. A Lucas Arts classic, you need to play this game if you already haven't. So you're this guy named Manny Calavera, and you're in t...

    Rated on January 02, 2006 by TofuLegend

    When people ask me what I think is the best game ever, (like the retro-nerd I am) I used to say something like Last Ninja 3 or Nintendo World Cup. That was until I played Grim Fandango. It's really h...

    Fantastic voice talent, brilliant writing and memorable characters mean that this is one of the best games ever made.

    Rated on December 28, 2006 by Eystanda

    Grim Fandango, in it's premise, is an odd idea for a game. But since when has the 'odd' stopped LucasArts from putting out great games? The adventure is set in the Land of the Dead, and you play Ma...
