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


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"

Beautiful game. If you like adventure genre, you gonna like this one. 10/10.
P.S: Don't forget to play Dreamfall: Chapters after you finish this one.

Controls are hard to get used to.
A lot of bugs with Windows 7/8, but at the end of the day, game works.

Absolutely stunning game. It also has amazing Nvidia 3D Vision support out of the box. Seriously, I would have purchased this if it was released this year at full price. Great game, great story, and I wish it was longer. I beat The Longest Journey and Dreamfall for the first time this week and it has been an incredible ride.

I highly recommend both games! It also runs great with the Steam Controller.

In preparation of the release of Dreamfall Chapters i re-started playing this game last week. I purchased this game as an xbox original on X360 before but never really finished it.
I played the first game in the series The longest Journey a week before and wanted to continue the story as quickly as possible. The game is quite long and the mechanics are no longer point and click like the first game but actual direct controls. Inventory management can be a bit fussy as the interaction with it is not as inuitive as intended. Graphically the game holds up quite well albeit the facial animations can be awkward. But for its time the game was really good. It continues the story of the first game a bit but mostly introduces new characters and story arcs which are then melded into the first games storyline. It is playable if you havent played the first game in the series but it might be better to play the first one or at least read up on its story.
Final verdict. A good game with a (sometimes) hard to grasp story. Gameplaywise and graphically the game holds up but at poiints does show its age.

A strong example of the "Second Episode Syndrome" - but still a wonderful example of the genre.

Overall this was a pretty good game, guys!!!

If you played TLJ (The Longest Journey) then you'll like the story of this game, but quickly realize how big of a change there was in gameplay mechanics of this sequel. As a very big fan of the original, I have to admit, at the start off this game, with the different controls and lackluster main character, I was thinking I wouldn't be a fan of this one and in turn, would end up being disappointed or would avoid the 3rd game, Dreamfall: Chapters- this ended up not being the case. The story is a 3rd person adventure/puzzle (WSAD/arrow key movement, not Point & Click) with minimal fighting and frequent puzzles. The puzzles aren't terribly challenging and only 1 part of the game has you do a lot of back & forth "fetching". You swap between 3 roles or characters in the game with the main character being a new girl, Zoe. Chat can be fast forwarded with the space bar, game is saveable at any idle time (non-conversation/cut scene), and, sadly, the game does not allow full screen windowed, which is something I enjoy in many games due to my dual monitor set up.

-Game is now realized in a full 3D environment. Graphically much better than TLJ.
-Main character, Zoe, grows and changes from when introduced to the end of the game. I really appreciated this as I initially was very uninterested in her.
-Story developed nicely. It was slow in the start and middle as it built up. The last couple hours of the game I felt very attached and well immersed.
-Puzzles weren't bad and most were easily solved without external assistance. I do want to call out I always use a guide in point & click games because, honestly, I just don't have the time for all the trial and error and I really do enjoy the stories of these games.
-Once you figure out the controls, the WSAD keys, Space Bar, and Tab can control your inventory, action wheel, and every other in game action needed- very easy to play from a laid back position.

-Movement and camera control gave me motion sickness during the game, especially at the start as I adjusted sensitivity and tried multiple configurations to find the "sweet spot". Eventually I gave up and primarily used the movement turn keys to control the camera turn.
-The combat was dumb. Controls were clunky and fighting was unneeded. This was during the time where game devs were trying new features and hitting as many check boxes as possible.
-Main character was kinda pathetic in the introduction and start of the game. I really felt she started to hit her stride when she arrived at Japan.
-Focus mode was mostly pointless and forgotten the majority of the game. A couple puzzles required it, otherwise it didn't do too much.
-1 Part of the game had you go fetch quest items, back and forth, twice. I really missed the ability the double click the edge of the map to instantly move- something found in other Point & Click Adventure games (Deponia trilogy & TLJ, for example).

TL;DR/Bottom line: Get the original, The Longest Journey, and this game, the sequel, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, as soon as you can afford it. I highly recommend them both and they go on sale together for $6.24 at the lowest. The 3rd game, Dreamfall: Chapters released 2 days ago (10.21.2014) and is, at the time of this writing, receiving very positive reviews.
