Gray Matter reviews and comments

Translated by

"Gray Matter" is a classic Point-and-click adventure with magic and magic elements. We are Samantha Everett, a young, self-confident woman who is interested in magic pieces of Art And keeps a white Bunny as a pet. On a rainy Evening, we are currently riding our Motorcycle through the vast and sparsely populated areas of southern England, our Machine goes on strike. Drunic We enter a remote property, are recognized and employed as a Contender to an Assistant position due to a mix up and thus stumble into a strange Story about which for Years like a Recluse on the Estate Living Dr. Styles ... Mechanically, we move in the classic Point And Click, that is, on different Screens we click on Objects or People, look at them, interact with them, take them or address them. A Print on the Space button and all Hotspots are displayed. An Inventory keeps important Items, a Diary automatically notes everything worth knowing. There is, however, a Special Feature: occasionally we can and must conjure. In order to perform such a Trick, we have to take actions in the right Order in our own Menu, let objects slide into the sleeves, for example, put them down Or distract the Audience. An illustrated Magic Book helps us with entertaining Descriptions of each magic trick. These Mechanics are a nice and amazingly well-functioning change from the otherwise classic Gameplay. The Graphics are good and atmospheric for a Game from 2010 and also partly very lovingly. Equally high-quality is the Sound, the strong and fitting music and above all the very professional and usually really well spoken German Setting. In General, "Gray Matter" consistently makes a high-quality and professionally skillful Impression. The Scope is large, the Characters intelligently worked out and the Identification works with the thoroughly sympathetic Protagonist. There are Nevertheless Criticisms. Despite the thrilling Story of the legendary Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight), some things are not exactly logical. For example, the Protagonist's basic Motivation for staying in the Property in the first place remains in the Dark. Also, a lot in the Story seems very constructed. In Addition, "Gray Matter" is unnecessarily linear. Opportunities For interaction often only become accessible once certain Points have been completed. This sometimes leads to things that Have not been a function at once becoming important. That's Why you are forced to check the Screens again and again, which can get annoying. However, the Puzzles and Tasks are usually easily solvable and coherent in themselves. Clues skillfully lead you to the Solution. All in all, a pleasingly intelligent and qualitative Representative of his Genre, who can entertain and captivate for many Hours. Rating: 9/10 Atmosphere 8/10 Story 8/10 Graphic 8/10 Sound 8/10 Game Mechanics 7/10 Balancing 8/10 Game Pass Conclusion: High quality, entertaining and extensive Adventure with Spin-and-read. 8/10 Overall Rating
