Storyline

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...

It's near-perfect
22 March 2000 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews

I've played a lot of adventure games, and this is hands down the best one I've ever done. Gabriel Knight 3 has an awesome storyline with layer after layer of detail and intrigue. The mystery just keeps unfolding as you solve more puzzles and see more and more of the secrets behind the town of Rennes-le-Chateau. Its 3D rendering and graphics look pretty great, the music is striking, and the cut scenes are really well done. The "dream sequence" movie, and the finale, just left me staring in awe. That's what you want from a game like this.

I really liked the characters, too. The interaction, especially between Gabriel and Grace, is excellent, and I really hope we'll see this continued in a Gabriel Knight 4! The only thing I wasn't amazed by was the dialog, which had its moments but was a little too sarcastic, a little too much of the time. However, I think that's no fault of Tim Curry and Charity James, etc., who did a nice job with what they were given.

As for difficulty, I wouldn't say GK3 was very hard. There are complicated puzzles, but if you're in the right place at the right time, it's pretty straightforward. I think that's to the advantage of advancing the plot, which as I said is just beautifully drawn. Gabriel Knight 3 is well worth whatever you pay for it.
