Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers is considered by many to be among the best animated graphic adventure games of all times. It is only natural for Sierra On-Line to capitalize on its success by making a sequel.

Beautiful game ..... Great story, excellent voice acting, creepy ambient and lots of historical facts make this game ONE OF A KIND !
The script is so good that I haven't realized who the villain is. Unbelievable ....

One of the greatest adventures EVER !

The game is fantastic. I have played it 15 times and never tire of it! I bought the collection Gabriel Knight Mysteries which includes Gabriel Knight 1 and 2, Jane Jensen's novel of the Sins of the Fathers, and a music soundtrack of all three games, but primarily the second. But if you play the soundtrack on your computer, you also get the graphic novel of the prologue of Sins of the Fathers that was packaged with the first game. A great addition to all Gabriel Knight fans everywhere!

Very Good

Very enjoyable, although some photo"shopping" looked funny even those days... especially if you have seen the original places.

Even more funny is the German language, if you actually happen to know it yourself.

I remember, that in spite of all shortcomings, the game hade some highly emotional moments... Like that black screen, which said "he... ate him!" - that was the most scary moment i have ever experienced in a game, probably exactly because of its implicitness.

I was surprised that the actors of gk2 are so good, in phantasmagoria they were absolutely terrible!

Jane Jensen has really made good job with this game!
The plot is exciting but some germans' german is awful...

I agree with Mr. Murry that this part of the game is really "clickonmad", but this game is good, try it!

this is the first game after Phantasmagoria

Phantasmagoria was the first that why is was very easy

Gabriel on the other end had the death that I didn't saw in many adventure games

the plot is gr8.

but the dialogs are long and 2 often .

the most nice thing about this game that after you finishes it you feel you actually been in Germany .
