I thought it was great! I've been getting everyone I know to play it. Very cool!
I used a couple of hints from a walkthrough, but I did most of it myself.
I usually hate using cheats too,.. but I also hate banging my head on the wall in frustration after being stuck for weeks. Vid games should be fun, not torturous...
I just ordered Douglas Adams' "Starship Titanic" (from Amazon.com) which I've heard is similar in concept to Grim Fandango, except there's more oppertunity for interaction.
I also just put in my brand-spankin'-new GeForce 4600 Ti 128 DDR. I got the Leadtek one. So far very cool!
