Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Superb voice acting, humor, and script writing, beautiful art style, and pre-rendered graphics

The Bad: Puzzles are difficult to figure out, a few graphical glitches here and there, too short, disappointing ending

I've heard all about this game for years and I finally decided to play it. I'm really glad I did because Grim Fandango has one of the best story lines in all games period. Of course this game was made in the late 90's so there are some flaws but I was surprised at how few there were. The story starts with you: A grim reaper who sells travel packages to the dead entering the ninth underworld. While Manuel "Manny" Calevera can't seem to sell the premium "Ticket to the 9" packages. These tickets let you leave the underworld to a very luxurious place. While most of the dead qualify there's something up with your rival Domino. The adventure has you finding new buddies, chasing a woman you love, and defeating the evil baddies.

The game has some pretty good pre-rendered scenes especially for 1998. The only issue I had was the puzzles because they are just so damn hard. There is a distinct lack of hints in the game and I always had to result to a FAQ. While the game is a bit short running in at about 6-8 hours it is satisfying but has a disappointing ending. I highly suggest this game if you love stories and if you love adventure games.
