Grim Fandango review

4.5 stars: "A superb game that excels in just about every area, held back only by one or two notable flaws or a collection of smaller ones that prevent the game from earning full marks."

Grim Fandango won almost every award given out the year it was released. Fans swoon over it and reviewers fall all over it with praise. Is it deserved it? Damn right it is.
