Grim Fandango is a classic that is not only among the greatest adventure games ever made but also among the greatest stories ever told. It is rare for a game to maintain an everlasting eminence such that it can still best more contemporary titles year after year.

This is the best game I have ever played in my life, and I wish I could help the Team do another, or even redo the old one if it sounds foolish, and relaunch it. It is a masterpiece. Period, I don't care what other people say or think. I do not know one person who played it and didn't like it. Enough said here.

This is the only game I've ever played that made me wish it could go on and on, that I didn't have to leave Manny and Meche and Glottis. I completely agree with everyone else. Grim Fandango is clever, funny, sad in places, an amazing work of art - simply brilliant. It's a shame Lucas Arts has avoided making it easy to play on modern computers and paid so little attention to it.

Best adventure game I've ever played. I've completed maybe 4 or 5 times, and I always make sure to go through all the dialogue choices, because the screenplay is so well-written and well-delivered by the voice actors. In addition, the game presents a wonderful story that cleverly draws from the best traditions of film noir, and it features clever puzzles that don't force you to dig around a huge inventory of items.

A timeless classic, this game is really a work of art. Without much of the complex graphics or visual effects of modern games, playing this old classic is nevertheless a true gaming experience for its beautiful setting, soundtrack, storyline, art and the amazing creativity of its creators! Definitively one of my favourite games ever!

Too much nostalgia! I still have the original box, I think I will go ahead and reinstall it again after reading this review =)

This is for me the best adventure that I have ever played, everything in this game is amazing from the music and the graphics to the voice acting and the story.
It`s not just a simple game, it`s a form of digital art !

One of the greatest adventure games ever, ever made.
Along with few else other games (five? ten?) a MASTERPIECE.

Great review of possibly the greatest adventure game of all time. I would, however, disagree about the obscurity of some puzzle solutions. While there are a few which are really challenging to figure out, I think that fair hints are given for every single one. The Rubacava section in all its complexity is a puzzle lovers dream.
