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.

Quite possibly the best adventure game ever made
16 March 2000 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

While the graphics look outdated now, and the music is all midi-based instead of digital, the first in the Gabriel Knight trilogy remains one of the best adventure games ever made. I spent many months absorbed in the great story and deep characters created by Jane Jenson, the literary genius of the computer game world. The designers got the atmosphere of New Orleans perfect for the technology of the time, and the music is astoundingly good! If you're a fan of incredible characters and an atmosphere you can lose yourself in, check this fine piece of work out.
