The graphic were great. Controls were good. I liked how you could be so many different people. Story line was different. There was a lot of talking. A little to much for me. I did finish the game. And I did not like the ending I felt cheated. The ending could have been better.

The Longest Journey Review

Overall a good games. Controls were easy to use and the story was intriguing. The combat was the worse I ever saw though. Should have either skipped it or just used a better system. I felt like I was in a kung-fu movie the way they waited their turn to fight me. And hitting them was a royal pain in the butt.
But the true disappointment -- which seems to be everyone's biggest gripe -- is undoubtedly the ending. I understand that they were trying to set up the next game but at the same time a little more closure would have been nice. They left TOO many questions unanswered. I also didn't like Zoe dying. If they don't bring her back, they should have their butts kicked. Also, the next game better have a lot to do with this one. If it doesn't I'll boycott the company who made this.
I also felt that there wasn't enough player involvement. Yes, you had to solve some puzzles, do some sneaking, etc.. But I really think it would have worked better as a more physcial rpg. It is possible to make a good story with good action. I just felt as if it was telling a story which is fine. But in videogames, technically you should be making the story because you are controlling the character.
All in all I did like the game and thought it was impressively done. I just feel it needed to be polished some. I just hope they do the polishing before they release the third game in the series.

This game started out promising. I was pretty into the story but a few issues kept me from fully enjoying the game.
First, the camera was too much of a hindrance. It seemed to get in my way or pull back when I needed a tighter shot or the opposite when I needed a wider shot.
Second, the level design in some instances was an annoyance. I felt like some of the puzzles required WAY too much backtracking and retracing my steps.
I ended up not finishing this game after getting frustrated with a couple of the puzzles which I just didn't have the energy or will to complete. I probably wouldn't recommend this game.
