    A fun story with great characters, but obtuse gameplay

    Time Schaffer games are always hit or miss. He may be a great story writer or character creator, but he's not a great game designer. I don't want to come out swinging with everyone thinking I hate Grim Fandango or all Sc... Read Full Review

    Simply the best computer game I have played in the 35 years I've been playing them

    The storytelling, atmosphere and humour all make this game stand out as the best piece of interactive storytelling I have ever come across, easily surpassing anything in the Myst series. Even now, 15 years later, I find ... Read Full Review

    One of those games that you'll play and love..great story, puzzles..

    Don't know if graphically it'll stand the test of time, but as far as story, puzzles and characters..this is a game that beats most, even today. From the beginning, it's hard not to appreciate Manny. His interactions wit... Read Full Review
