Do not buy this if you have Windows 10. It seems to have a lot of issues. Every time I tried to quit it would lock up the computer and I would have to use the task manager to force it to quit.

I was born in 1993 and this game came out in '99, so I definitely wasn't playing it at the time. However, this game really interesting to me as it was both a throwback to my childhood and set in the future. Going on 20 years since it was made, it's definitely intriguing to see a version of how the future could be envisioned (plus a load of 90s fashion and cultural references). One of the things I definitely notice between then and now is how much more action focused our games have got - I was getting really frustrated with how slowly she travelled and walked to places.
I bought this game because I'd heard good things about Dreamfall Chapters and then wanted to play the prequels to have a better idea of the storyline. For story lovers like me, this game won't disappoint. It has a really solid storyline and had me hoooked. It was a really great intro to this series and keeps you thinking as a player of the game (which I really like).
It's also great to have a female protagonist and there's a lot of background legend to get involved in, if you enjoy that in your games. Overall, a great buy and I'd definitely recommend.
(Note: at first, the game kept crashing, but by putting a HD video on on youtube in the background my laptop could deal with it better and the problem was 'solved')

Just finished the game. Loved it. When I first started out, I was only half-interested in anything the characters were saying. Mind you, I'm playing this in 2016, so everything felt very 'been-there-done-that'. The further you progress into the story, however, the more you get pulled into it, into all of it, the world, the characters, everything. Talking about those characters- it just, it always amazes me how developers can pull of creating alternate worlds, the different creatures they invented were all just so darned likeable, especailly the Bandu. And it has to be said, for a 1999 game, it's very modern. It had a bunch of stuff in it that nowadays people tend to make a big deal out of, like a lesbian character and a wide variety of races, oh, and did I mention, blatant profanity just like in real life.

As for some of the more technical stuff. The voice acting was great, and everything was voiced over. I know that's possible with games like these because they tend to be smaller in size, but it really helps a ton with immersion. Sure, the graphics are from 1999 and sometimes you're not sure whether that's a face or a melted candle, but at least everyone's got stellar voices to go with their retro looks. Besides, the sceneries were lovely, just the characters that looked a bit clunky. As for the gameplay, it was just the basic point-and-click stuff, required some quick/clever thinking at times. Only thing I couldn't stand was April's walking speed, girl get a move on, buuut I could just speed my way through any animation that took too long for my liking, so that wasn't really a problem either. I think if I'd have any serious "issue" (I say "issue" because it didn't actually bother me) it's that I felt no real emotional connection to most of the characters, so whenever anything happened to them, it didn't bother me, but I think when it comes to creating emotional connections to characters, you just need more time with em than a game like this can give you, so I wouldn't really chock it up as a flaw.

Overall ratings:
Audio: 9/10
Graphics: 8/10*
Gameplay: 7.5/10
Story: 10/10

*keeping in mind it's from 1999, and the sceneries were very good

I would not recommend this edition for german players!
There's a localized special edition available with german sounds and subtitles causing a lot less trouble under Windows 10. The Steam version however doesn't support german as a language.

From a technical perspective this game is very old and only supports a resolution of 640x480.

I would recommend this game story-wise if you don't care about the technical flaws.

I was a bit apprehensive starting this as I am not a big Adventure type person and the age also worried me. But honestly? This goes down as one of my all time favorite games.

Aside from some dialogue going on a bit too long this is a fantastic game that I would recommend it to anyone.

It feels a little pointless to review a game that came out 16 years ago, but I had to throw my hat into the opinion ring - I absolutely adored this game so I felt duty bound to gush about it a little. Plus, having never played it when it first came out, it's brand new to me.

The Longest Journey is as long as the name suggests. The amount of content for a point and click game is phenomenal. And describing the story as anything less than epic would be like describing the Great Wall of China as a bit long.

Set in two worlds, one woven with magic and filled with dragons and fantastical creatures, and one in a slightly bleak but tech-filled future, this is a must for point and click adventure fans. The Longest Journey has a wonderfully told story, which equal parts intriguing, touching, engaging and funny. With only a handful of exceptions, the voice acting is equally stellar, and the puzzles pitched just right (I did need to use a walkthrough on a couple of occasions, but hey, what's new).

Although the graphics are a little dated due to the age of the game - the sprites and animation is dire in places - the backgrounds are beautiful.

My biggest - probably only - gripe with the game is that it takes an age to move your character from screen to screen (even if you're running). Top tip (which sadly I only found out towards the end) - if you enable it in the settings, the escape key will skip those bits for you.

All in all, this game was an unforgettable experience and even at full price is worth every penny.

In short: Very good. 8/10
Pro's: Excellent story telling. Marvellous fantasy. Easy to play. Solid fun, no noticable bugs.
Con's: Graphics are very outdated, would love a Remastered version :). Conclusion left me a bit... meh'ed.

To me this game is proof that you don't need full HD super graphics to have a wonderfull time. The game begins slow and doesn't overwhelm you with information. But soon enough magic and mystery is all around you. Although I totally love the fantasy of this game, I do recognise where some idea's came from and feel that some plot moments could have been worked out better. None the less, having missed this in the past, I played it for the first time in 2016 and was left wanting more! Fortunately, there is :)
TLJ is never boring, the puzzles are never frustratingly unlogical, there is plenty of humor and you are always wondering what will come next. The only frown I got was at the conclusion where the ending was much different than expected and a little bit of an anti-climax.

If you love story telling and if you're not hung up on the latest graphical achievents, then I'd recommend this game 100%.

This game is fantastic. Point and click games need to be more like this.

Only negative is the extreme low resolution but, it's an old point and click game so...

One of the most unique games I have ever played in my life, how did I not find this gem 15 years ago is beyond me. Fantasy mixed with Sci-Fi, mixed with some of the most beautiful art in a game I have ever seen. Sadly, the game does not allow F12 screenshots, otherwise I would have a bunch. 9/10 in my book.

This game is one of the best adventures I ever played. It has witty characters, some extremely nice puzzles but foremost the story... There's nothing (even not earthly religion) that goes above that.

TLJ tells the story about April Ryan, a young girl who gets tired of country life, being ♥♥♥♥♥ed around by her father (no, it's not really what you think but it comes close), and wants to go to pursue her creative talent in the big city of Newport.

She isn't there for long as she starts to experience dreams that aren't quite right. Not long after an old guy starts reading her mind, telling her she's important. Reluctant as she is she answers his call and embarks on an adventure transcending earth and even the universe in some ways.

The game is full of surprising twists and turns. In many other games you're given objectives, but in this game, the premise is being given to you in an old temple by a wise man, telling you about the ritual which will save the universe from the ultimate chaos.

The great thing about this game is that as you go forth, the quests that seem like detours and sidequest bring you from one location to another and stumble upon people who happen to know more. The whole game you're gonna have the feeling that faith will bring you where you need to be, rather than waypoints and quest goals.

Since 2000, the story of this game has captured me more than any of the greatest games that I have played so far. So I'm also grateful it's next sequel will be on Steam this fall!

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.

Upon completing the Longest Journey, I wasn't surprised it constantly gets ranked in top PC game lists.

Clocking in at a solid 25 hours, it will keep you entertained for quite a while. You do have to put yourself into the Click and Point Adventure mindset however, as it is by no means, a fast paced game. It's more like an interactive book.

The game for me shined the most in its dialogue. Nearly every character has an incredibly natural enunciation rarely found in games. It gives you a stronger connection with them, and helps you believe every word.

The next best parts of the Longest Journey was its story and variety of characters. It takes place in the 23rd century Venice, and gives a fascinating perspective of the past, present, and future. With a story as interesting as this, that's all I can really say without spoiling anything.
The characters feature a wide range of tallent and personallity, which makes them so interesting to talk to. By the first sentence someone utters, you already know what kind of person he/she is, and how he/she is going to treat you, it really is that detailed.

For a game stuck in 640x480 resolution, it is full of very detailed and beautiful scenery. 3D objects are pretty pixelated and jaggy, and are probably the thing that aged the worst. Some up-resing would benefit The Longest Journey pretty well, but I quickly became lost in everything else it had to offer, that the quality rarely bothered me.

The puzzles as well can be pretty cryptic. I had to look up a guild many times to figure out what to do next. That didn't bother me too much either, but it would have been nice if the main character gave hits on what to do.

I am currently working through the sequel, Dreamfall, which early on already has reoccuring characters and locations, and because it came out 6 years after the first, it's nice to see things in better detail.

If you want a less action oriented experience that feels like a mix of an interactive painting and a best selling novel, I highly recommend picking up the double pack. With a promising 3rd installment in the works, how can you go wrong?
