Oh, that's a good one, Jenny. smile

The Gray Matter under my Christmas Tree was the actual game. And I just finished it yesterday.

I think it's not perfect (like GK1 or GK2), but still very good and a true Jane Jensen adventure game.

Thank you Becky for an excellent review! thumbsUp12 It's seems the troubles I had to get a working download version will be worth it & I'm looking forward to getting stuck in over the weekend (if not before!)

Thanks for the comments! It's good to see that others are playing. I'm intrigued to see what others think of the game.

My game is still on order (UK) and I'm very much looking forward to it.

But I must say I "feel" a bit for Jane Jenkins .... If anything and everything she comes up with is always going to get compared to Gabriel Knight woozy12

One of the better adventure games I played in recent memory...

But the cutscenes art style ruined the experience a bit for me... It's a real shame. Sometimes it was really hard to figure out what's going on..

Other then that, great game!
And great review Becky smile

It was good but I think it's forgettable

Hi Nafsika, I was wondering what games you find memorable? smile12

After a marathon on it I've just finished the game! I re-read your review Becky & think it's such an accurate appraisal of the game! I loved it, thought the story was excellent & the game well-constructed but there were times when it wasn't obvious what to do next. Also I would have preferred the cut scenes to have been more in keeping with the graphics of the gameplay areas. I'm not sure I was so crazy about the last chapter but it did set the scene for a surprising & very satisfactory ending not always achieved so well in many games! For me the game was unforgettable! thumbsUp12
