5.0 out of 5 stars
Best games in a long time., 1 Feb 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars
I can still remember saving up my pocket money to buy this pack when I was younger, and after I got my hands on it I never looked back.
2 games, a bonus cd, a novel and a comic (or graphic novel) for less than 30 quid, not a bad deal.
Sins of the Fathers: (the first game) Puts you in control of Gabriel Knight a New Orleans author and book store owner who is down on his luck and beautify rendered in hand drawn animation. As Gabriel is embroiled in a mysterious Voodoo cult with connections into his past you will be enthralled by the story. So the graphics aren't top notch but the sets are beautify drawn as are the close up of the characters that appear during conversations.
The Beast Within: (the second game) Again you control Gabriel and now Grace as they hunt werewolves in Barvaira. This time the game is presented using FMV (Full motion video/ as in actual actors being filmed on blue screen). Personally I've never been a fan of FMV games but the fact that I played this one all the way through (its the only FMV I have completed) is a testament to the story and acting ability of the cast.
The novel of Sins of the Fathers, is an engrossing adaptation of the first game that you just won't be able to put down. My copy of the book is falling apart I've read it so many times, in fact it was the only thing that go me through a particularly boring school resedentual.
