Is the remastered version of Grim Fandango, with a real orchestra now, worth playing? Chris Berrow has a review. 

Chris - This is from DoubleFine games. They make quirky games like Brutal Legend, starring Jack Black, as a kind of rock god - perfect role for him. Also, they have a game called Psychonauts that you might've played.

They have some of the original, most amazing games to PlayStation. This one was first released in 1998, and it was the first adventure game to use 3D computer graphics for this particular company. And they put it over kind of still backgrounds. It's been remastered for the Xbox. And so in Grim Fandango, you are the Grim Reaper. It's a fun story in a sense. It's very funny. It's a bit like Monkey Island, where you put your sort of points and click your way around and you arrive at a crazy character. The controls are fiddly but it's a lot of fun, and for only £5 it's well worth buying.
