Gabriel Knight II – The Beast Within – Prologue/Intro

Gabriel Knight II – The Beast Within was a huge change from the first entry. The game employed FMV (Full Motion Video) which was all the rage at the time. The two leads of Grace and Gabriel were re-cast in order to make the visual look of the characters. The adventure takes place in Germany. While a fairly good game, I much prefer the style of the original. The story is a pretty good one, as Jane Jense takes the lead in that department again. This game originally spanned 6 CD-Roms. Using an installer from Sierrahelp.com you can convert your CDs into a single DVD image which is then fully installed to your HD. Features more excellent music composed/arranged by Robert Holmes.
