"Easily one of the most pleasant easy-going story-driven 3D games. Just makes you wonder why aren't there more games like this."

Reviews

Gamespy.com - Adventure Game of the Year - "Dreamfall stands so far out of the pack, we believe it would have been a stellar candidate no matter what year it was released". If gaming is ever to be more than merely colored lights and sensation, though, it needs these types of experimental projects to move forward. Gaming may not yet be "art," but with Dreamfall, we're one step closer"

In this easy-to-use context-sensitive interface you can scan your entire visible environment as seen by the characters, and use it to get information on far away objects as well as triggering remote gameplay opportunities.
  • Mature "Thriller"-type Storyline Dreamfall delivers a mature and compelling storyline that mixes the futuristic, fantastic and spiritual with a tale of murder, deceit and a conspiracy threatening our very existence. Bringing the classic adventure game into the world of the modern action game, Dreamfall delivers a rare and special story experience.

This game is mostly about listening to dialogs and running from A to B, back to A and then to C. Has an awesome story!

A sequel to one of the best stories you can find in gaming, but now you get three playable characters and very nice graphics for its time! April Ryan is back although her cheerful spirit is distored after what had happened in the previous game and therefore I recommend playing The Longest Journey first. Zoë, from the world of science, will be fighting a huge corporation while searching for her best friend. Kian, from the world of magic, finds himself torn between his faith and what his leaders tell him to do. All these three characters will get to interact with each other and controlling them, throughout the 14 hours that this title offers, is really great fun. You'll need to solve a few minigame puzzles (hacking), find ways to enter dangerous areas by putting enviroment to use and meet numerous people who always have something interesting to say. I wouldn't like to compare Dreamfall with TLJ since they are very different. They stayed similar in things that matter though and I appreciate that with 10/10. Again.

Replaying this again in 2015... What this really is, a telltale games game way before there was such thing as telltale game, and just oozes with class and depth, unlike telltale games.

The graphics are aged for pc standards, but thankfully human voices haven't evolved, and its still top quality voice acting by todays standards.

If you never played tlj i'm not sure if the effect would be as strong as it carries over the background... but if you have this is amazing. You're just watching this tlj story continue and you want to come back.. for what happens next in the story story (dont bother thinking about the gameplay, not the point at all, theres quality here and its not that).

....I don't remember dreamfall being as awesome as it is when i first played it. Excellent surprise and really looking forward to chapters.

This game's mechanics are admitedly dated and the movement in particular can be blocky at times. In addition, possibly due to budgeting reasons, a segment of the story ended in a rushed and perceivably incomplete way.

That not withstanding, however, this was a lovely adventure game, an easy winner for any fans of the original game and any of the adventure P&C surge of the 90s, though this game in of itself veers from its P&C origins. A good story which becomes excellent primarily in its final act, writer/director Ragnar Tørnquist once again serves up thoughtful, charismatic and well-written characters whom- with the exception of main character Zoe- are generally voice-acted very well. This game will definately appeal to any looking for a new venture into story-driven, fantasy games, whilst I would recommend those who consider the mechanical aspect vital to give this a miss, as the limited camera scope and movement mechanics will likely have you tearing your hair out!

I tried. I really did try.

Dreamfall and its predessor, The Longest Journey, are often praised by adventure game fans, and I like adventure games, but I just cannot find anything to like about either of these. In Dreamfall's case, the adventure/puzzle component has been stripped down to a bare minimum and combat and stealth has been put in to make up for it. The trouble is, it doesn't do any of these things well, so by trying to appeal to "everybody", it becomes decidely mediocre at everything.

This isn't purely down to the game's age, as even fans of the game recognised these shortcomings at its release, but still praised its story. Well, after 7 hours, I can't share those sentiments either. The "twin worlds" idea of "technology" and "magic" is a naive concept at best (what do you think stoves, spinning wheels and doors ARE if not technology?), fate and destiny and conspiracies and ancient civilizations are potentially great sources to mine for a story but I found nothing new or interesting about any of it, at least not by the half-way point. The voice acting is terrible by today's lofty standards, which I accept is an unfair criticism of a relatively low-budget game, but the end result is something that comes across as amateur.

I've sat through worse games, and to call it terrible would be doing it a disservice, but the shoddy stealth/combat bits comined with a fiddly camera have broken this particular camel's back and I cannot summon the will to continue.

On the plus side, I had no problems getting the game running properly this time, which was nice.
