    Great Old School Game

    This game took me back to the days when great PC games were slower paced, story type games. Series like King's Quest, Space Quest and Gabriel Knight ruled the roost. This game was in fact written by Jane Jensen, the writ... Read Full Review

    One of the best adventure games

    To me it was one of the best games I've ever played, and I've played quite few. The plot is really interesting, dialogs are good and voice acting is brilliant (Eng. version), especially Dr. Styles. Puzzles or not to hard... Read Full Review

    This game is so amazingly inspiring that it almost made me study Neurology. And the story is absolutely beautiful.

    I love it, it's got everything I like, it's very enjoyable, the best adventure game I've played and I am very passionate about this kind of games. It involves neurology, mystery, magic, afterlife and feelings, it's very ... Read Full Review

    A heart touching story, puzzles just right. A brilliant game, a true masterpiece. Terrific characters, beautiful sound track. A very heart warming and interesting game! Fascinating subject, plot. This is every bit of GK ... Read Full Review

    Recommended!

    Atmospheric scenery, charming heroine and a great story make this adventure game one of the best I've played so far. Personally I think it's not as good as Syberia but that is hardly saying this isn't good enough. I've ... Read Full Review

    Very nice story

    I am in video games for the stories, and since point-and-click adventures these days must have excellent stories I play them a lot. The story in Gray Matter is refreshing, since it takes standard point-and-click tropes ... Read Full Review

    This is probably the best point-and-click adventure I have ever played.

    I have played A LOT of P-n-C games and this, if anything, is the one with the best story. I cannot exactly explain it, but you almost feel attached to the characters and kind of wish the game would not end by the second ... Read Full Review

    Gray Matter has an engaging story, but the actual gameplay is very flawed.

    The Good: Dark and engaging story, main characters are interesting, unique art style The Bad: Having no guidance almost breaks the entire game, clicking around aimlessly can be frustrating, inconsistent character desi... Read Full Review

    Great story line...

    Pros: This game had an excellent story line. Matter-of-fact it had about 4 different stories going at once. Lots of emotional aspects as well. You had murder, mystery, scifi, romance, magic (the magic was awesome), ghost... Read Full Review

    Not the Jane Jensen comeback I had hoped for but a damn good start.

    Being a huge fan of the Gabriel Knight series, I was looking forward to this for years. And I have to say it... only partly disappointed. Yes, it is not the genius game that I would have hoped for. Not as dark as I h... Read Full Review
