    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

    This is hands down, the best game ever made.

    Grim Fandango is a rather unique game. It is set in a mexican-esque underworld, with every "person" in it appearing to be some sort of mexican calaca figure. It is also the first 3D adventure game, and it isn't only the ... Read Full Review

    If you haven't played this game, you don't know what your missing out on.
