Grim Fandango Remastered Reviews Summary

Summary: Grim Fandango Remastered 's limitations mainly stem from its original release, but so does its strengths. Many of the issues of the original, such as bugs and the general difficulty of point-and-click games, remain but the game's quirky art-style and fantastic writing make it worthwhile for those who can overlook its weaknesses.

Definitely be careful of rose-tinted memories. The puzzles and its relatively early peak can't and shouldn't be ignored. Nor though can everything that it does right, from its sheer heart and creative polish, to the genius of its ideas and characters. Even when it stumbles, it stands as a fine reminder of why LucasArts at its prime was seen as the industry at its best, and few other adventures have deservedly gathered so much affection. It was an instant classic back in 1998. It's still very much a journey worth taking today, albeit ideally with a walkthrough.

A confident remaster of a true classic. The puzzles have aged badly, but the sparkling humour and world design still shine.

Time has done little to diminish Grim Fandango's beauty or relevance. It is an adventure game not to be missed.

More a reissue than an actual remaster, but the game itself is still as wonderfully unique and entertaining as ever – with some of the most memorable characters in all gaming.
