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>

Trivia

Although all the in-game video sequences were shot in front of a blue screen and none of the actors actually went to Germany, the German game package still had a sticker on it, saying: "Exclusively filmed in Germany!" to attract more buyers. See more »

Goofs

When Gabriel asks his lawyer about the "Koeniglich Bayrische Hofjagdloge" his pronunciation is so bad that not even German native speakers could understand a single word of it. However Gabriel's lawyer does, although he admits he never heard that term before. See more »

Gabriel Knight: Does it?
Preiss: We're all animals! Why deny it?
Gabriel Knight: So you don't believe in suppressing anything?

Gabriel Knight: Well what if you get the natural urge to rip someones throat out, shouldn't they suppress?

Best adventure game I have ever played
19 April 2001 | by (Horsens, Denmark) – See all my reviews

What gameplay, what actors, what scenery... It's all perfect. It took about 3 months to complete this game, and I loved every second of it. It really caught me. I actually went to see the sites from the game, and I read a lot of the history behind it... See "Gabriel Knight: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned" as well, it is also great. I cant wait until GK4 is released...
