I've been playing games for a long time now and this game has one of the best story lines I've ever seen.
It's a direct sequel to "The Longest Journey," which I never played. My advice is to look up a plot summary of the game so you can figure out what's going on. Regardless, you don't' have to have played the first game to really enjoy Dreamfall.
The graphics are amazing, the storyline is awesome, and the puzzles aren't ridiculously difficult like a lot of other adventure games. I would definitely recommend this game, it's one of those where after you beat it, you think about it for a couple days.
This is a fun adventure. It takes you along into an exciting and beautiful story of mystery and fantasy. It's not a fighting game or a button masher.. it starts off in our world in the far off future in 2219 and then the main character ends up in another parallel dimension full of magical beings, mystery and fantasy. The game switches between three different characters but all are involved in one intertwined storyline. The story keeps you on your toes and it keeps you guessing the whole time. This game is not the fighting game fans that's for sure the fighting system in Dreamfall is not impressive to say the least and that is one part of the game that the developers could of improved on.. in a big way. But the story and the characters saved it for me. I'm a huge Morrow wind fan for Xbox and I also loved Final Fantasy 10 not for the fighting but because I loved the storyline and the fantasy worlds...that is the same reason I think I loved Dreamfall.
This game is one of those that you just don't want to put down. I never played the first game, but after playing dreamfall i'm on the hunt for it. The storyline is one of the bigger draws of this game. I won't say I liked the graphics much and the lock on control for objects drove me nuts. Other than that I really loved playing this game. It reminds me of a really good book that you have to finish. Every moment in the game I kept wanting to know more and more. I have to say it is a game that you will enjoy and not forget.
