Gamer Headlines writes: "If you look back at LucasArts’ amazing 31-year legacy, delivering quality Adventure games in the ‘90s definitely ranks as one of the company’s greatest accomplishments. Truth be told, they are what defined the genre during that time period. The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle; these are all games you think about when you hear the term “LucasArts Adventure game”, but so was Grim Fandango, Tim Schaffer’s critically acclaimed Day of the Dead-themed tale that reflected on so many stylish themes, giving the game its one-of-a-kind look and feel. Not only was Grim Fandango regarded as one of the most iconic video games of all-time (and still is to this day), but it was also a true testament as to what the medium could achieve as an art form at the time, which is why it completely makes sense for it to receive a remastered treatment. It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 16 years since the original release of Grim Fandango, which makes the trip down to the Land of the Dead all the more worthwhile for new players and even for Adventure veterans, despite hitting a few frustrating bumps along the way."
