I have to agree with you all about GK2 definitely being the best of the series. It really is a classic that would be hard to beat.

I was lucky in that I played them in reverse order, first GK3, then GK2 and then GK1. I enjoyed GK3 very much with nothing to compare it with. It was a totally different kind of game than GK2.

I always love FMV the most. It just brings a story home so much more than animation does and the Beast Within was just wonderful.

I played GK3 first and loved it, especially the Serpent Rouge puzzle. The jumping and falling (lots of falling) near the end I wasn't too sure of. GK2 was really in a class of its own. I thought it was absolutely terrific.
I'm waiting for GK1 at the moment, my first purchase on E-Bay. I'm off on holidays tomorrow so hopefully it will be waiting for me when I get home.

I bought each GK game when it first came out and replayed them all in order a couple of years ago. Jane Jensen was (and probably still is) an absolute genius, and I'd buy anything she developed without knowing the first thing about it!

I just finished GK3 and I gotta tell ya, I'm so sad. Knowing there will probably not be a GK4 and the situation at the very end won't be resolved. cry But I'm so glad to hear that most of you liked GK2 better. I am considering GK1 but don't know if there's lots of glitches or what, but GK3 had no problems whatsoever. I'm running Windows ME. I don't know if I'm ready for another animated Gabriel, and I agree, this one was just too rednecky for moi! laugh I still can't help but wonder, why isn't there a Gabriel Knight television show with Dean (is that his name?) YES, Dean Erickson, this little baby right here: http://www.adventuregamesforever.de/Ueberraschung/Erickson.jpg in the role. Oh, forgive me, I forgot, reality shows rule. duh mad Thanks to those of you who helped me through the rough patches. wave Boomers are the best!

who in the world decided on Tim Curry as Gabriel
Jane Jensen. It was her game.

She went out of business of computer games thanks to 3D madness that unfortunately still persists. That is the main reason why Sierra adventure games disappeared. 3D is good for FPS and simulations but for the rest is total [blip]. For me 3D is still ugly and eats huge resources and drives prices of new PCs sky high. GK4 was never even mentioned by Jane Jensen.

Hi, clatterNdin!

Congrats on finishing GK3!

I replayed GK1 on my old Win98 computer last year with only a couple of minor glitches. Yes, the graphics are extremely archaic, but the storyline is so compelling and the puzzles are so seamlessly integrated that you probably won't even notice.
