Dreamfall is the second game in The Longest Journey-franchise. It is praised by many but I must disagree. I've played both the first game and this one and I must say that the first one is way better.
In this one they have hyped up the graphics to the 2000's standard and made their own game engine it seems. All character has this blind stare into the distance while talking, with only their mouth and eyes moving, it's creepy as heck to look at.
They've introduced fighting mechanics since the last game, and let me tell you, they are HORRIBLE and unbalanced. The enemy will 9/10 times whoop your ♥♥♥ because of this.
Camera movement and movement overall (mouse and keyboard) are completely worthless and janky, Escape doesn't take you out of the menu or inventory, you HAVE to click the 'Resume Game' or inventory button to get back again. It's probably better with a gamepad, but a plain 360 controller isn't even picked up by the game..
Puzzles in the game are too easy, not even worth calling puzzles because it's just "go here, go there, pick this up, done".
Areas feels very empty, no people are around, most areas are just big empty places with very few things to interact with, and with the janky camera it's not even worth trying to look around and get a feeling of the place.
The first game in the installment is much much better, voice actors have more feeling in their voices as well, helping with the immersion. I hope the third game (Dreamfall Chapters) will weight up for this piece of garbage called a "puzzle" game.
Do yourself a favor and buy the first game instead. This game is just a dust collector with a few references and callbacks to the first one.
