Grim Fandango

Game: Grim Fandango (Remastered)

Year: 1998

System: PS4

What Kind of Adventure?

It was a graphic adventure.

Was it fun?

I want to say yes, I certainly understand why its such a popular game. The story is very interesting but for me the problem is that the whole game is a series of puzzles. I’m not great at puzzles and its a game where you have to have a lot of patience to just kind of walk around and slowly figure out what the game wants from you. Its one of my closest friends favorite games but he has played it several times so he knows what he needs to do and can just sit back and enjoy the story.

Are there any similar games?

Not that I am aware of, this was a whole new experience for me.

Favorite Character?

Sal. Glottis. “I’m not too big, the cars are just too small.” That’s all you need to know about this character.

Would you play it again?

Probably not.

Any Complaints?

Far too many puzzles for me. I enjoy a simple puzzle but these are complex puzzles and you really need to plan ahead. I don’t want to ruin the game for anyone but I will say, if you don’t look up what you need to do next and just try to figure it out on your own, its going to take you 20+ hours. If you decide to play it again, it’ll take you less than half of that time. It seems like this maybe a game that gets better with every time you play it.

How would you rate it and why?

7.6

As I keep saying, the story is great. It has humor and the game itself is interesting. Its just a very complex game that takes a lot of intelligence.
