rolleyes I could really get into this game, however, the conversations are incessant. Is it just me, or does anyone else feel they could have eased up on the talk? think

Hi, Darlene!

I become bored with excessive dialogue and, IMHO, there was waaaaaaay too much in both "The Moment of Silence" and "The Longest Journey".

Yes, 'The Longest Journey' was another seemingly endless conversation tree. I did enjoy the story, though, and feel the same way about 'Moment of Silence', so I'm planning on finishing to see what happens...

HI-

I agree there is lots of dialog, but think it is necessary to keep the game going, at least that is how it is set up. Would prefer a little less, but all in all I really like the game.

Just my 3 cents worth.

I agree with you Darlene.
And the other 2 games mentioned also.

I love a lot of dialogue, so it follows that I really liked the games you mentioned! In fact, I wished there was MORE dialogue, as it was so interesting to me to hear the different responses you could elicit. Interesting how we all differ on our likes and dislikes in games. smile

I really liked the premis of the game, but, I agree there was too much conversation to sift through. I also with that there was some conclusion at the end of the game as to what happened to the various people.

In my opinion the more dialogue the better. Loved TLJ and MOS. Dialogue furthers the game along,gives clues and gives you a real insight into the characters and what makes them tick. Give me heavy character interaction, and story lines any time. 1st person games with endless exploring and puzzles on top of puzles on top of puzzles bore me to death (all Myst types, ROTS, Mysterious Journey,Mysterious Island, Aura, etc, think you get the pircture). Give me the TLJ's, Tex's, Gabes, Syberias, Black Dahlia, Black Mirror, and MOS anytime.

Happy Gaming all,
Bill

I'm really enjoying MOS. I love the dialog and strong story also and like Bill, much prefer the 3rd person games with lots going on.

I also like the 1st person games too, but the ones I enjoy the most have a lot of cutscenes or opportunities for dialog.

I don't think the number of conversations was the problem. I think it was the way they were set up. I didn't like having to repeat conversation choices and search around in order to make sure I'd exhausted all topics? It took extra time and added nothing to the story. In fact, it slowed the game down when it didn't need to be slowed. Also I think some of the conversations in the game would have worked better as cut scenes. It's not like you wouldn't be asking all the choices anyway.

I agree, Beanbag. It isn't fun having to repeat conversations to get to the part you didn't ask yet. Most of the time the new question shows up with the highlighting but sometimes you do have to repeat to get to the new part.

I really like the game anyway though.

Totally agree. I can't finish it. There's no game to this game. I found that if you can read fast, put on the subtitles and click your way through it. c
