5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-Blowing Gothic Horror February 3, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The 7th Guest was a revolutionary development in the history of computer games. It was one of the first games to utilize high quality pre-rendered 3D graphics intertwined with FMV when most titles were relying on hand drawn sprites. The game also provided a mesmerizing soundtrack composed by George "The Fat Man" Sanger (think Wing Commander and Ultima Underworld) and included two live recordings: "The Game" and "Skeletons in My Closet". The soundtrack was included on the 2nd CD and could be played in any CD Player.

The story is an original twist of Gothic horror and film noir of the 1930s and 40s, where you are attempting to uncover the mystery behind why you are there, what happened to everyone else, and who is the seventh guest. Actual game play is smooth and seamless as you glide through the mansion by clicking from one room to the next. Entering a new room or location furthers the story by triggering a flashback showing what happened before your arrival, displaying haunting imagery, or providing a cryptic clue. Stauf also serves an ethereal companion who provides enigmatic hints and unrelenting comments about your progress. Staying true to the thematic elements of the game, you unlock pieces of the story by solving puzzles, which open up new areas to explore. Each puzzle is uniquely tailored to fit the theme of the room in which is it found and is designed to be intellectually challenging.

This game provides a captivating story that is unapologetic in using adult themes to provide a definitive horror mystery. Anyone who loves H. P. Lovecraft, Richard Matheson, Alfred Hitchcock, or just the experience of being scared-out-of-their-pants should pick this up.

Loved the game since I was younger but make sure you have DOS on your computer or know someone who can get it installed because it won't work on Windows XP or higher for sure.

I purchased 7th guest because my original copy was lost in a divorce, and although I no longer had the older computers and operating systems that 7th guest was intended for I was able to get it running in emulation with very little effort.
Runs flawlessly in DOSBOX for windows and linux!
Back when this game was designed, it stressed high end hardware at the time as it required lots of horsepower. These days it still holds up on my quad core. Brilliant.
