Dreamfall: The Longest Journey Review

Dreamfall is one of those games you'll never forget. The storyline will keep you wrapped in, until the final blow, & you'll still be wanting much..much more. Everything in this game was created & designed with perfection in mind. From the breath-taking visuals, to the outstanding orchestrated musical score, to the amazing cast of voice talent (that they kept from The Longest Journey), & in-depth story that connects well with it's prequel, The Longest Journey.
Your playable characters, Zoƫ, April & Kain are all from different sides of the story that connect to create an epic saga. With memorable characters from every world you go to, that you'll be sure not to forget.
I will say this game is not for those who aren't adventure fans. This is a story driven game. The action & suspense is carried with the story, not the fighting. On that note, there are points in the game where fighting, sneaking & selective dialog are used & this is only to spice up the gameplay & keep it from feeling like such a linear game(and I fell they did it rather well).
My only complaint throughout the game is the camera view seems to get stuck in some spots making it hard to manage your view at times, but it's a very minor detail.
Overall I think that Dreamfall is one of a adventure fans' masterpiece. With entirely describable worlds, visually stunning scenery, top notch voice acting & a musical score masterpiece. Adventure fans, this game is for you!

The best the X-Box is capable of.

This is the most perfect game the X-Box could have possibly produced. Sweeping, beautiful environments, a great narrative, painless load times, and decent puzzles. I loved it, and was heart broken to return the game after I rented it. There really are moments when you fall in love with the game and its characters, and its all very gradual. This was an excellent story, and it is oh so very frustrating to know that I have to wait for a sequel to come out to finish the story, and that I have to pick up an eight year old PC game to know the first third. Well, The Longest Journey earned one more fanboy in me, and I hope you take time to try this very underappreciated game for yourself.

Do not rent it if you're a twitch action junkie. This is not Halo. This is the next evolution of KotOR.

I have played games before but this one was like WOW!!! It just blew me away in how it drew me into the plot, I honestly felt for Zoe and Faith.. And it was like watching a movie and I was directing it to a point. I just hope they are talking about a new dreamfall and you can rest a sure I will buy it and I bet that one will blow me away as well. I recommend this game for anyone to try, the only thing is you have to be open to being the characters... I again loved this game.
