SummaryOne of the best from sierra. Like Angel Heart , only in game form.
The GoodThe atmosphere of New Orleans is incredible. Many movies have attempted and failed at creating that evil atmosphere. (Angel Heart is perhaps the only exception i can think of) A mixture of beautiful french style, but the feeling of evil in every scene.
The plot is quite good (for the first few days). I got to the point where i couldnt stop playing cause i was so keen to find out what happened next. Whereas on other games (Kings quest ) there was no real plot other than to do unusal things to find the princess.
In fact , the only sierra game which comes close GK is police quest 4.(in my opinion)
The BadWhen you go to germany and see a dragon. Europe can be the most atmospheric place for a game , but the designers blew it by placing more childish elements in the europe segment.(The dragon - The idea that Gabriel's family comes from a wierd order who attack evil. Gabriel should have had evil ancestors who had been damned) Finally , the last day , when gabe goes to the underground lair. Destroys the entire fel of the game.
