Grim Fandango Remastered is proof that a great game is timeless. By refreshing the visuals and sound for today's age -- yet retaining the story, characters, and puzzles -- the developers have proven that anyone who enjoys a slower-paced adventure will no doubt fall in love with this charming remix. Even those who played the original should get a kick of this new version, as it's been a while since the original was released for PCs. Unlike some other adventure games that have obscure puzzles, Grim Fandango's puzzles are directly tied to the task at hand. Game designer Tim Schafer's writing also is a treat, punctuated with excellent voice acting.

Even with the refreshed production values, the game has some graphical issues, such as character models you can see through or not being able to see where to click because the camera obscures your view of the scene. But it's certainly better than the original game. Whether you have a nostalgic leaning toward the original game or are brand-new to it, Grim Fandango Remastered is well worth the $15 download.
