Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within review

Computer Gaming World (1996): "Plot, puzzles, characterization and art all lead to one of the most ambitious denouements ever in graphic adventure game history. The lost opera of Wagner scene is worthy of a film epic. It offers tense moments, comic relief, and a fascinating catharsis. We've always believed that a significant amount of production resources should be spent in rewarding the gamer who plays all the way through the game. GABRIEL KNIGHT 2: THE BEAST WITHIN transforms game endings- a dynamic finish to a most dynamic game. Jane Jensen just may have become the interactive Anne Rice she‘s always wanted to be."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

There is an XP-compatible re-print on DVD with de-interlaced movies, but it is exclusive to the Italian market.
