Gray Matter - Collector's Edition (computer game)

Customer Review

Gray Matter is a classic in the truest sense of the word adventure, with point and click control, long dialogues, unfortunately often no less long walking distances, challenging puzzles and a quite good and exciting narrated story. The latter is divided into several chapters, video sequences during and between chapters breathe the usual genre requires some static events swing a.

In the role of young Mentalistin Samantha who is the assistant to the unplanned mysterious Dr. Styles a bit, the player makes the search for the secrets, which located the estate Dread Hill, close to the historic Oxford surrounded. Samantha at the same time follows the saving of the Daedalus Club, an exclusive Wizard and Magician Club, before its members they would like to perform for their lives again.

The event overall is good from the very beginning until the end of the scene, the story twist Empire and until the end it does not come so easily to the truth. The puzzles are moderate to challenging, with logic to get the most on, really unfair are the tasks at any time. Anyone not quite so new is in the genre, is by coming here well.

In terms of graphics the title may unfortunately only partly convincing, really chic or revolutionary what is offered is simply not I take time carefully the words "a little stale" on the keys. The acoustic ambience is right, the control is easy to use and in most cases accurately and precisely - Objects can be found good and Select. The figures often seem a bit wooden and some movements somewhat clumsy but not to be overlooked.

Although you get fix on the map from one venue to the next, so individual run lengths are possible for the venues would nonetheless get a little long. Especially if you just because one or two actions completely traverse an entire section, the cost unnecessary time and goes quickly to the motivation. This affects difficulty is that the game is programmed to every scene change needs to be recharged with loading screen. I personally think today anything but contemporary and here now really disturbing - the game flow is constantly interrupted.

Further fittings of the collector's edition is made in my opinion nice soundtrack CD, game card set and postcards to a poster (as usual unrecognizable folded) in an extra wide Steel Box is worth for fans thoroughly.

Conclusion If you like classic Adventures, which may quiet risking my view here a glance. Apart from the long running paths, the constant reloading and not-so-fresh graphics including animations there in this item at little to complain though gnaw alone these points already clearly on gameplay. The game is challenging when it comes to puzzles, the story well, the total playing length is likely depending on the game behavior between 8 to 12 hours are also so far around. Whether it has to be the CE issue that everyone must decide for themselves.
