Goofs

At one point, Gabriel attends a college lecture which he also records with his tape recorder. At the end he gets drowsy and falls asleep. As he does so the lecturers statement become garbled indicating Gabriel's loss of focus. When the tape is played back, one would expect the end of the lecture to not be garbled, since the tape recorder itself doesn't fall asleep, but the end of the recording repeats the same garbled ending.

An awesome game
10 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite computer games of all time. The plot is great, the dialog is wonderful, and the voices are fabulous. The voice over cast did some prime work here. Tim Curry, one of my favorite actors, voice was perfect for the part of Gabriel with his cutting wit and vocal charm. Garce Nakimura, played by Leah Remini, was also great for fending of Gabriel's advances and still being a great friend. Leah unfortunately didn't star in the later two games in the series which in my view was a great loss. Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father still can make my skin craw which is no small feat for this seasoned veteran. I have been gaming since Zork 1 and Wizardry 1 were brand new games. I give this game a A++++
