This game is only for patient people who don't mind the old graphics.

I've only recently discovered the universe behind this and Dreamfall and as a real sucker for good stories, I went for the first one in the saga. It blew my god damned mind. You play as April Ryan, an unknowing savior of the two worlds that had been split ages ago. She is able to cross the border between them and is able to fully interact with both of them. You'll meet dozens of interesting people and creatures that are fairly believable and likable. You'll be solving some really tough puzzles that don't compare with what's called puzzle now-a-days. Some mysteries which don't make any sense in the beginning will be revealed and fit so perfectly in the story at the end. Other mysteries stay concealed until now and keep thousands of fans excited for more. I highly recommend playing this one before jumping to the newer Dreamfall games. I give this game the ultimate rating 10/10

In fact, I loved the game so much that I made a complete walkthrough guide to it, feel free to check it out if you're seriously interested in buying this game because the tasks can get very confusing sometimes.

While the graphics are outdated I really enjoyed this game.
You will get to know the main character April and join her in her adventures in strange fantasy worlds, meet many creatures and interesting people. Great story, the puzzles will keep you busy and there is so much humor and mystery in this game. After many joyful hours of playing The Longest Journey I finished it and can't wait to play the next of the series.

Epic novel

Playing 'The Longest Journey' felt like reading a captivating story, rather than playing a game. Sure, there are plenty of puzzles to solve, but it's the story that will have you hooked. You play as April Ryan, an artist who moved to Venice from the countryside, who is struggling to make ends meet in her art career. Everything changes when she meets a man named Cortez, where she gets herself into a plot to save both worlds of order (science) and chaos (magic).

Gameplay is presented in the usual 'point and click' fashion. You click on areas of the map to move April, double clicking will make her run. You can press 'escape' to skip animations (if you allowed this in the options menu) and dialogue if you just want to progress through the story quickly (although I recommend not to skip the dialogue as you may miss important information). You can interact with characters and objects by simply clicking on them. There is an inventory system which allows you to store and use items to solve the puzzles. The puzzles may be a bit tricky to solve as your not given a clear indication of where to go and how to solve the puzzles, which makes you refer to the 'trial and error' approach. Other times you will be moving back and forth areas due to some fetch quests. The store page says the game will last you '40 + hours' although I completed it in about 17 hours through using a wlakthrough (because I wanted to progress the story, without dealing with the puzzles).

The graphics are somewhat outdated in this current age. 3D-models are a bit blocky and the textures aren't as detailed as other games in the genre. Having said that, they do a decent job at setting the atmosphere in the various environments you roam in. The CG movies haven't aged well either.

Plot is where this game trully shines. The story is unique and will keep you guessing as it unravels. Voice acting of the main characters (especially April herself) is excellent and believeable, minor characters voice acting are somewhat mediocre. Your emotions will be tested here as you will feel a sense of wonder and awe, fear, laughs and a bit of sadness as the you progress though the story. The music is also decent at setting the mood.

Furthermore, you can unlock 'The book of secrets' which contains dialogue and music which were removed from the final product.

I highly recommend this game to point-and click gamers looking for a good story and don't mind solving puzzles (although I do advise using a walkthrough).

It can be said, that I liked, well, everything about the game. It is a true work of art. The story is fascinating, its quality surpasses the plots of many fantasy books, the dialogues are witty, the characters are deep and convincing, its technical side is easy to master... The riddles are hard and can sometimes get you discouraged, but is it not - after all - the puropse of the adventure game - to make your brain work at a quicker pace? All I can tell anybody, thus, is just it: buy the game and take part in one of the most exciting journeys in your life.

This game is the god and ancestor of all the point and click adventure titles out there now. This game has a movie-like, amazing, wonderful story and incredible worlds which has one of the greatest atmospheres and characters made with superb intelligence and imagination. Even the very old graphics can't hide the awesome piece of art and design. The puzzles are very difficult and surpsisingly fun and do not frustrate players like most of the other adventure games does. Soundtracks and voice actings are one of the bests ever, presentation is amazing and this game is simply P.E.R.F.E.C.T.
Although most of the new-gen gamers out there will not going to enjoy this because this game didnt aged well for them, but if you are a person who likes to try completely new and difficult things, give this game a shot.

Pros
- Amazingly designed worlds(Stark,Arcadia) and wonderful art design in them
- One of the best atmospheres in video game history
- Great presentation mixing real life into fantasy
- All characters are wonderfully designed, they have realistic personalities.
- Wonderful puzzles, the best in video game history in my opinion
- Awesome gameplay
- Great soundtracks
- Amazing voice acting
- More than 35 hours of non-repititive playtime

Cons:
None


Overall Score: 10/10
