Having previously played Dreamfall, which I consider one of my favorite games, I recently decided to give The Longest Journey a shot. Now, having finished the game, I can say that this game surpasses Dreamfall and is without doubt one of the best game I have ever played. This game is a masterpiece in storytelling and has some of the most believable and likeable characters I've experienced in a video game. The writing and voice acting is top notch. The graphics are dated but there is some nice looking world design and set pieces. The puzzles are varied and fun however some are downright illogical (I'm looking at you, rubber ducky). This is a long game, and it's worth every second.

I recently played through TLJ again in anticipation for the Dreamfall Chapters and wow, this game is so great! I remember playing it many years ago and I was blown away by the amazing story, graphics and characters. Well, the graphics are aged but still you're swept of your feet and thrown into worlds of science and magic. Few games make me laugh out loud or can actually make me sad but TLJ manages to get my emotions going in every step that April takes. The sheer wonder of exploring an unknown world is breathtaking and nothing seems impossible.

I would, without a doubt, call this a timeless classic that will forever place in my top three favorite games of all time.

To anyone who has never played this game and is thinking about it; think no more. TLJ is a masterpiece in storytelling and is surpassed by few.

Adventure games are not for everyone. They have little replay value unless you enjoy the story so much that after the first playthrough you want to experience it again.

What's interesting about The Longest Journey is that it appeared during a time when adventure games had largely fallen out of favor. The odds of it becoming a success were slim.

However, writer Ragnar Tørnquist knows how to assemble a compelling, quirky and funny story that captures the hearts and minds of many gamers. For this reason, TLJ has become one of the best adventure games of all time.

Female characters in video games don't always have complexity, but April Ryan is one of the most interesting characters I have ever encountered. It is a joy to observe her grow as a person as I play, from a woman unsure of her future and place in the world to a savior of the people.

Also, I love how Tørnquist successfully blends both cyberpunk and fantasy elements together to create a unique narrative.

I don't recall encountering a nonsensical puzzle, either, which is a flaw that some adventure games have.

Dreamfall: Chapters is coming out very soon, which is why I recommend checking out the game that started it all first!

If you can look past the outdated graphics, this is a great game with an amazing story and characters.

There is A LOT of dialogue which can be a pain if you're used to more action packed games, but still very much worth it. At the end of the game I found myself wanting more even though I was sometimes frustrated by all the dialogue. Puzzles aren't too hard, but provides enough of a challenge. Characters are relateable and humorous.

This game is the best game I've played this year. 10/10

To all fans of point-and-click adventure games and, in fact, story-driven games in generally. I'd HIGHLY recommend this title. Not only has it aged suprisingly gracefully (it originally hit the shelves in 1999), the terrific voice-acting, genuinly intuative environments and overall consuming plot will keep you coming back for more.

It plays a bit like a great TV series, you switch it on and play your fill of the game (usually about an hour or two) and after a while, you might get the itch to play something else a bit more involving... but I garuntee you, by the next day, you'll be dying to play The Longest Journey again and really sink your teeth in to the story as you left it.

Terrific voice acting, dated but reasonably resilient graphics, fantastic plot scripting, challenging and entertaining use of items and overall aesthetic rate this game highly on my list.

Overall, a top-notch game.

9/10

Played this quest many years ago in my childhood, now re-playing it as a part of preparation to Dreamfall: Chapters. I've totally forgotten HOW awesome this game is, and now, as a pretty grown 22-years-old man, enjoying it even more than back in youth.

Great storyline, incredible voice-acting, witty and well-written dialogs (really, the humour is amazingly good over here; trolling of religions is a damn great bonus), beautiful backgrounds - haven't seen it altogether in a modern quests for a long time, unfortunately.

Looking for another playthrough of Dreamfall: TLJ and then Dreamfall: Chapters next in this October :)

An adventure genre classic. Be sure to have a guide handy. Not all of its puzzles play by any rules of logic.

This is one of the last games from the Golden Age of adventure games, the genre created by the titles published by Sierra and Lucas Arts. Unfortunately, it does show its age compared to some of the other adventure games, which was the problem for the early 3D games that weren't extremely stylized like Grim Fandango or The Neverhood (both worth checking out).

However, once you can get past the low poly characters and the resolution being what it is, it's very easy to become fully immeresed in the game. That's when the voice acting and story quickly come to the forefront, and you will realize that this game is easily on par with many of the modern games. It's rating is completely is justified.

For only 10$, this game is a steal.

Dans le Point & Click, il existait à l'époque de son âge d'or plusieurs catégories. Les jeux avec un univers sérieux, ceux avec un univers loufoque et ceux avec un univers fantastique, digne des plus beau romans.

The Longest Journey fait partie de cette catégorie. Ce jeu fait partie de ceux qui ont été l’apogée de ce genre. Un jeu qui peut sembler classique au premier abord, mais qui se démarque par la richesse et la profondeur de son univers. Un univers dont la beauté et la complexité n'ont d'égale que la trame narrative du jeu.

Alors certes le jeu a très mal vieilli visuellement, et il est assez compliqué à faire fonctionner de nos jours (Merci à Steam qui permet de profiter des magnifiques musiques du jeu, qui ne fonctionnent malheureusement pas avec la version boîte sur les OS récents), mais ce jeu a la capacité d'emporter un joueur dans une aventure dont il ne décroche qu'avec difficulté.

Peu de jeux vidéos peuvent prétendre avoir une telle qualité.


PS : Bien qu'indisponible en français sur Steam, il existe un patch FR disponible dans la section "Guides". Donc ceux qui rechignent à le tester à cause de l'absence de VF, elle est disponible pour peu que vous la téléchargiez. ^^

The Longest Journey is a LONG journey of our main protagonist, April Ryan. She's confused, clumsy, ♥♥♥♥♥y, and sometimes can be manipulative too (well it's the nature of the point and click genre), but you'll love her! You'll get absorbed into the witty, funny, and deep story about "Balance", it's just like reading a really good novel that you can't put down once you started reading it. The writing is just so good, it's worth mentioned again, it's so good! And the voice cast is seriously GREAT, they not just speak, they 'live' the role. Sometimes the dialogue can be so long and take a lot of time, but I enjoy every single of it (Hell I feel guilty if I skip the dialogue!). It's one of main strongest point beside the story of this game, simply amazing. If you play the game and reach the point where you meet Crow, the most narcissist bird you've ever seen, you'll know what I meant.

The art is masterpiece in concept, but when getting compared to modern games, it's still good but you can see some limitations in the execution, especially in the character department. The character's polygon still rough, sometimes the animation get glitch and weird, but hey what games in that year doesn't? If you see the art concept by their artist, you just can't imagine, how great the visual will be if its getting remade with technology that we have now. Thank God it's happening right at the moment!

The puzzle is cool, some are smart and fun, some just aren't. In some points you need to go back and forth one place to another, moreover if you miss one dialog with one character, or miss examined that one tiny point of the scenery, sometimes it can be exhausting. Some people simply just attracted to the story and get annoyed easily when get stuck, it's understandable. If you want to take the 'fast lane' I recommend the guide of UHS Hints because it reveals the only information that you need at the time, one by one, so you will not be spoiled. I still recommend to solve the puzzle by yourself though, because of its rewarding feeling.

The game has one of the most satisfying ending, the feeling you got from finished that Bioshock game, it's there. I don't want to spoil too much, but I just want to say, whatever made you stop and not finishing this game, for god's sake just-finish-it. Even it takes a long time, just like me :) English is not my first language; I reopened the game after have better vocabulary, and it's the right decision

Well, here I am, 14 years later, finished the game, and now I can confirm when people said that this game is one of the best adventure game ever made by human, it's true.

English review (Polska wersja, jak zawsze, niżej):

By completing the Steam version of The Longest Journey I have broken one of the most basic principles of gaming: One does not simply come back to playing a game that one loved more than ten years ago. But upon doing so I have to tell you two things: This game aged pretty badly. And it hasn’t got old one bit. These two sentences do not constitute a paradox.

Back in the days, the art of TLJ was simply breathtaking, which nowadays clearly isn’t the case. The 2d backgrounds are still impressive, but all the models are old and ugly. If you’re going to play this game in modern times take my advice and override the display settings from your graphic card’s control panel. TLJ really benefits from trilinear filtering.

Having said that, besides the models and somewhat clunky and dated controls ( though nothing really serious) TLJ remains the most complete adventure game experience I have ever played. The game skilfully balances between the hard dystopian sci-fi and magical fantasy, creating a truly uniqe and extensive storyline, the characters –even these appearing for a few minutes – are charming and original, and the humor is clever and entertaining. Speaking of characters: the game’s protagonist – April Ryan – is perhaps the most developed and unique character in gaming. And also, it should be noted that the game soon turns much more adult and dark than one should expect from a story about girl jumping back and forth between the worlds of magic and reason ( but then it swings back to cheerful fairytale just to get even more serious in the next chapters).

The voice acting is stunning. Actors do an unforgettable job, especially during the final chapters of the game. This may come up as a surprise since if you pay attention to credits, you will notice that one actor often voices three or four characters. Furthermore, the dialogues are written in a truly brilliant way – even the shortest ones are witty and memorable.

While it can be argued that after finishing there is nothing much to come back to (there is The Book of Secrets but obviously I won’t tell you what’s inside…), a single playthrough took me 16 hours which is enough time for two point and click games. While the puzzles usually aren’t that difficult (usually… the rubber ducky puzzle)and don’t take that much time,still there is an INCREDIBLE amount of lore, and some dialogues can take few minutes while characters convey that information. Vestrum Tobias is particularly guilty of that, since he introduces April to the story of the world. Worlds.

The ending is perhaps the most fulfilled and satisfactory conclusion to a game I have ever seen, but it leaves a sense of melancholy. I will probably play this game in the next ten years just the way I tend to re-read certain books to measure them against the impact of years. This may be the only game in my entire Steam library that I would grade ten out of ten without hesitation. And in the meantime, I’ ll be waiting for The Longest Journey Home…

Polska recenzja:

Kończąc Najdłuższą Podróż na Steamie złamałem jedną z najbardziej podstawowych zasad gamingu: Nie można tak po prostu wrócić do gry którą kochało się więcej niż 10 lat temu i oczekiwać że doświadczenie grania w nią nie uległo zmianie. Najdłuższej Podróży wyraźnie przybyło lat. Ale też nie zestarzała się nawet odrobinę – i nie, te zdania wbrew pozorom wcale sobie nie przeczą.

Swojego czasu grafika Najdłuższej Podróży zwyczajnie zapierała dech w piersi. Obecnie tła ciągle mogą robić wrażenie ale wszystkie trójwymiarowe modele są zbyt proste, słabo oteksturowane i zwyczajnie brzydkie. Na pewno pomaga odwiedzenie panelu sterowania karty graficznej i manualne włączenie filtrowania – grafika odrobinę na tym zyskuje.

Pomijając grafikę i nieco przestarzałe sterowanie (nic bardzo poważnego) Najdłuższa Podróż ciągle jest najbardziej kompletnym i spójnym doświadczeniem jakie zapewniła mi gra przygodowa. Gra umiejętnie miesza dystopijne sci-fi z bajkowo-magiczną fantastyką opowiadając wyjątkową i bogatą historię. Postaci – nawet te pojawiające się na chwilę – są urocze i oryginalne, opowiadane dowcipy nie są nachalne i potrafią rozbawić do łez. Skoro mowa o postaciach: April Ryan – główna bohaterka – jest chyba najciekawszą i najbardziej rozbudowaną postacią z jaką spotkałem się w grach. Trzeba też dodać że atmosfera gry szybko staje się dużo cięższa i bardziej dorosła niż można by się spodziewać po opowieści o dziewczynie skaczącej między światami nauki i magii ( a potem znów zmienia się w radosną bajeczkę tylko po to żeby w następnym rodziale stać się jeszcze bardziej poważna – nie pozwala się nudzić nawet przez chwilę).

Osoby podkładające głos dokonały czegoś niesamowitego. Gra aktorska – szczególnie w końcowych rozdziałach – jest genialna. Tym trudniej w to uwierzyć, biorąc pod uwagę że prawie każdy z aktorów podkładał głos przynajmniej pod kilka postaci. Co więcej dialogi napisane są po mistrzowsku – niektóre zostają w pamięci na długo po ukończeniu gry.

Skoro już o tym mowa – skończyłem grę w 16 godzin i właściwie poza Księgą Tajemnic (Oczywiście nie powiem co znajduje się w środku...) nie ma po co wracać do świata gry. O ile zagadki na ogół nie są trudne (chociaż … dmuchana kaczuszka) i nie zajmują wiele czasu, świat gry jest niezwykle bogaty i te 16 godzin to przede wszystkim zwiedzanie i dialogi – niektóre trwające dobre kilka minut, szczególnie jeżeli ktoś zacznie opowiadać historię świata gry. Światów.

Zakończenie gry – jak cała opowiedziana historia – jest piekielnie satysfakcjonujące, przemyślane i kompletne. I zostawia straszliwe uczucie melancholii – po 16 godzinach gry, czyli czasie którym można by skutecznie obdzielić dwie lub trzy gry przygodowe, szkoda było mi że to już koniec. Z całej mojej Steamowej biblioteki jest to jedyna gra której bez najmniejszych wątpliwości wystawił bym ocenę 10 na 10. Prawdopodobnie odświeżę moją znajomość z Najdłuższą Podróżą za następne 10 lat tak jak to robię z niektórymi książkami, a w międzyczasie czekam na Najdłuższą Podróż Do Domu … czy jakkolwiek zdecydują się to przetłumaczyć.

There has been a time, around 2000, everybody was thinking that maybe graphic adventures were doomed. After the commercial failure of Grim Fandango the future seemed obscure, and The Longest Journey was a shining light. Maybe I am too melodramatic, but I like to think that TLJ saved this genre, because it showed to everyone that it was still possible to make extraordinary point and click games.

I won't tell you anything about the story, if not that it has a strong sci-fi/paranormal vibe, because I really want you to discover it entirely. The setting is futuristic, and you'll help the main character, April Ryan, discover the truth about herself and the world she lives in. The characters are deep and very well written, the story manages to be funny and allegoric at the same time, and the puzzles can be really challenging. Old School. Awesome. In the end FunCom and its lead writer at that time, Ragnar Tørnquist created a world that feels alive, characters you really care for, and a story that will make you think about our role in modern society. Even the smallest details are perfectly integrated in the main narrative arc. The Longest Journey is a must have for any graphic adventure fan, and a great game in general.

Sadly, as many early 3D games, if played now feels (graphically speaking) very outdated, but I assure you it won't be an issue as soon as you enter this fantastic world. But yeah, a resolution patch would be awesome ;-)

The single best female protagonist of any game i have ever played, bar none. Nothing compares to your charm, April Ryan. This story will quickly become your favourite adventure story and make you believe in magic again. Or want to.

Old. and worth the effort of having to install Virtual Machine and Windows XP to get it to work.
