Apr 7, 2022My truthful honorable incorruptible conclusive rating of this considered game: 6.
Nov 28, 2021A very original game with great humour, but overly obtuse puzzles (normal for the genre) harm it from getting a higher score.
Awards & Rankings
The large cast of characters is unforgettable. Although for the most part they are skeletons in 40s garb, with mask-like faces that can be attributed to Day of the Dead festivities, their personalities render them as distinct and memorable as members of an extremely diverse cast from any fine film.
Hands down the best adventure game we've ever seen...You'll love Grim Fandango's incredible art, storyline and character development.
Quite possibly one of the top five adventures of all time, and certainly in the Top Ten. The style, atmosphere, wit, creativity and inventiveness are what makes Grim Fandango remarkable.
