Storyline

Shortly after moving to Rittersburg to take over duties as the lone "Schattenjager", Gabriel Knight is called by the townsfolk to investigate the killing of a child believed to be caused by a werewolf. While Gabriel is away on the case, Grace Nakimura leaves New Orleans for Rittersburgh to conduct research and keep an eye on him. Grace soon learns that Gabriel's case goes back centuries and involves King Ludwig II. Meanwhile, Gabriel's investigation leads him to a small private hunting club, where he believes the culprit may be hiding. The two are pulled deeper into the horrific events, leading Grace out to stop the unrelenting nightmare and Gabriel in a fight for his very own soul. Written by Andrew Kasch <akasch@darkvortex.com>

Goofs

Several errors occur when Mrs. Smith is doing the Tarot readings for Grace. 1) She says Grace's lifetime card is the Chariot. Later, the same card comes up for Gabriel's lifetime card, yet Mrs. Smith calls it the Lovers. 2) When she draws the other card for each, the same design stands for both the Magician (in Grace's case) and the High Priestess (in Gabriel's case). 3) The second error results in two different cards (Grace's other card and Gabriel's soul card) being called the Magician.

Quotes

Baron Friederich Von Glower: What separates man from every other species on the planet? Civilization! Oh, its not a bad thing, human society, but it has come at a terrible price. Through civilization we have lost our physical self, our sensory perception, our instinct if you will. We became fat and lazy, a dull rusted blade.
Gabriel Knight: And those on the good days.

Ah, Gabriel, so good to see you.

Ah, my friend Gabriel, come in, its so good to see you.

This is the words politely uttered by Gabriels lawyer in Munich. German politness, but the local police chief sneers at him like a rabid schaefer. The mysterious Baron von Glover is the coolest caracter in the game. He hangs around in an expensive hunting club, and he is just beyond coolness. All in all a great game. Forget that is is a few years old, its still good fun.
