If the Academy Awards opened themselves to video games, Grim Fandango would be looking at a sweep. Best acting: Grim Fandango. Best script: Grim Fandango. Best cinematography: Grim Fandango. The game’s creators wouldn't have to leave the podium.
Masterpiece Story, animation (at that time), and music made this unforgettable experience. I've completed it maybe 5 times, so I wish it was more forgettable so that I can enjoy it as much as I did the first time. Granted that some puzzles are bordering illogical, it still shouldn't take away from the experience. If you get stuck, just read a walkthrough.
GF doesn't really go anywhere new so don't expect too many surprises in that field, where it does excel is in keeping to the tried and tested Lucasarts formula of comedy and logic combined to give you the most senseless fun you can imagine.
One of the best PC games EVER
Grim Fandango make you cry,make you laugh and can entertain you.
With a subtle irony the game runs fast.
Puzzles that make you mind-bending to be solved.
and an immense charm
I recommend Grim Fandango to anyone who loves video games
The puzzles are way way too random, illogical, convoluted. At first I was really digging the art style, writing, and atmosphere, then I got really stuck after trying everything I could think of. I looked up what to do online, and it was just such random ridiculous stuff there were no clues for, there was no "Aha!" moment.
