Gabriel and Grace are invited by James Steward, exiled Prince of Albany, to watch over his infant son. He is concerned about the boy because his family has been plagued for generations by what seem to be a secretive sect of vampires. The first night Gabriel watches guard over the boy, the kid is kidnapped. Gabriel manages to follow the kidnappers to the remote French village of Rennes-Le-Chateau, but on arrival loses every trail. His only lead is the tour group that arrived about the same time he did. Gabriel, suspecting every member of the group, continues his investigation and asks for Grace to join him. It turns out that the village of Rennes-Le-Chateau itself is surrounded by a dark, sinister mystery, involving a sacred bloodline, vampires and boundless treasure which steer our hero towards a path that is inescapable...

Probably the best!
22 July 2004 | by (Coimbra, Portugal) – See all my reviews

I will begin by describing how I came to know about this game: I had, recently, bought Pharaoh and in its cover there it was: "Rennes-Le-Château guards a frightening secret. Find the truth. Risk your soul." In that moment I KNEW I had to buy that game! Were I live it is extremely hard to find adventure games, but, luckily, I had fortunate and found it. Immediately after starting the game, and Gabriel waking up, I open the door leading to the hall and there was the feeling that makes Gabriel Knight nr. 1 - the perfect symbiosis between the music and the and the location – the perfect atmosphere! In that simple hall I knew the game would be one that I would enjoy very much. After 5 minutes of game, I began to understand the plot and the more I wanted to play. It is an exceptional well written theory about the Templars and its relation with the mysterious French village of Rennes-Le-Château that supposedly hold their treasure. All of the characters have a great presence and throughout the game we will learn valuable information about them and their reasons for the trip. The game also shines, because, although the plot isn't real and has many parts full of fantasy, it is presented and justified by true facts of Templar history. To end this modest review:

Music 10/10 – David Henry and Robert Holmes really did a wonderful job!

Graphics 10/10 – although they are not very detailed, they are good enough and 'fit as a glove' on the gameplay.

Gameplay 10/10 – by using that 3D graphics engine, the gameplay is very simple and ables the player to see the action from many angles and gives the sensation of presence in the scene.

Plot 10/10 – there wasn't a single scene of the plot I didn't like: well written and well presented it has the perfect atmosphere!

Overall 10/10 – all of the crew that worked in this game should be congratulated for this amazing game, which I have played over and over with always more enthusiasm than the previous time!
