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While the graphics are outdated I really enjoyed this game.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.

I played this for the first time, when it came out. It was the first game I completed and I really, really loved it. Playing it again, it was an amazing experience and even though now, the graphics look outdated, they story was still enchanting and I loved every minute of playtime.

My only problem was that I couldn't quit the game using the controls, there was some sort of a glitch that didn't let me see the confirmation window and move the cursor when the confirmation window was active. I had to log off the entire system and reboot. That was annoying.

Still. Great game!

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

I came to The Longest Journey expecting a classic, critically aclaimed point & click adventure with a great story, and the game really delivered. This has to be one of the best written games I have ever played, without any exaggeration.

The thing with game plots and game characters is that we usually compare them to other game plots and characters when we praise them, so "slightly less superficial than everything else" gets named "brilliant writing". The Longest Journey's writing could easily have been a book or a good movie screenplay however, and it definitely is shockingly better than most games I can name. Characters have personalities, distinct voices, motivations, relationships, lives. Their conversations make sense and are interesting. You get to care about everyone, and you can empathize with your down-to-earth yet epically heroic protagonist. The world-building and exposition never feels like a boring dictation that you need to click through to go on. Even the in-game Diary serves an actual purpose, adds to the story and delivers hints in writing that you really want to read. There is drama and silly jokes, grand adventures that get toned down with humor, an epic sci-fi/fantasy save-the-world plot with twists that make actual sense and don't leave gaping plotholes behind. It's all quite a feat, especially considering the theme.

And yes, the graphics didn't age all that great, the gameplay doesn't reinvent the wheel, there's the long back and forth running through mutiple screens to patiently wait for, and some of the puzzles are what you'd expect from classic point & click adventures - namely not all that brilliant. But it honestly doesn't matter. If you like the genre, you have to play this game, there is a reason it's still getting mentioned so often. It's not just a true classic, it's also very much a joy to play.
