Computer Game Review, April 1994

"For this adventure game, Sierra has updated its venerable gaming engine' commands are now somewhat easier to access with the more intuitive interface. The game is dark and - forgive me for using the word, but nothing else fits - gothic. The backgrounds are dark and gritty, much like New Orleans (more specifically, the warehouse district of the French Quarter) at night. They are beautifully rendered, and not much in the way of the so-called "hot" colors are used; deep blues and greens dominate."

"Instead of attempting standard horror, which rarely works on a computer, GK uses an intellectual approach, whereby the title character begins in a slightly creepy but perfectly normal world. Slowly, through increasing encounters and terrifying dreams, he finds his world dissolving into a chaotic and violent world just under the surface of New Orleans. It's an approach that works well in novels and films, and works well in GK."

"A warning for parents: this game is meant to be for adults only. There are scenes of graphic violence, and the language has less in common with King's Quest 6 than it does with Stephen King."
