"Almost every location in the game - and there are many - is a fully built-out, 3-D photorealistic environment that the player can explore with complete freedom of movement. Every word of text in the game is spoken out loud, often b well-known movie actors."
Multimedia World, February 1995
"Combining painstakingly detailed 3-D environments, tasteful video sequences, a dynamic sound track, and complete freedom of movement, Under a Killing Moon is the closest thing yet to a living, breathing, alternate reality."
"The cinematic interludes that break up the game are most impressive, featuring incredible animation and the talents of James Earl Jones, Margot Kidder, and Brian Keith."
"Under a Killing Moon sets a remarkable new standard for graphic adventures, and in my mind at least, puts an end to the quest for the Interactive Movie."
Electronic Entertainment, February 1995
"And the characters you meet are the most engaging of any video-based game around. Some of the dialog and sight gags will even elicit genuine laughter, a feat few computer games can match. You'll actually find yourself wanting to stand around and talk with the other characters just so you can watch their reactions."
