I love FMV (Full Motion Video) games, even though I understand that most of them are not really good games, as much as interesting relics of gaming's past. However, there are exceptions and Under a Killing Moon is one of them. You play Tex Murphy, a PI modeled after Spade and Marlowe that lives and works in a future vision of San Francisco. In this adventure, you take on a dangerous cult striving for genetic purification. For me, the Tex Murphy games are the pinnacle of FMV adventure with a combination of good writing, decent acting and a good dose of (intentional) humour.
Great review. While I've heard of the Tex Murphy games, I've never paid much attention, assuming they where nothing but FMV "shooting" games from the early days of the Sega CD. Can't believe that I missed out on this. But, even if the game stunk, I think I'd get it just to see the cast performances alone. I mean, the CFO of the game company starring in a game? Only in the 1990's. Great stuff.
@bombatomba: Thanks! It is a really fun game, definitely one of the best FMVs.
