Sorry to be late for the discussion... Before I read this I thought I was quite alone in not being a fan of TLJ.
What I remember most is the endless waiting for April to job from one end of the screen to the other. A complete waste of my time, I can't understand why they implemented a "run" feature when in fact she only jogged at a slow pace (better to implement the sprint option like inte Simon 3D). Small things like that puts me off the game.
What really bothered me was the language. Not the swearing (it there was any?) but the translation. I played the Swedish version, but sometimes it seemed to me they hadn't used a Swede to translate the manuscript. It was most obvious with the landlady. I guess in the English version she says "Honey" all the time, which I think is very American, but you really can't translate it into Swedish the way they did. We don't go around saying "honey" (Swedish: "Raring") like that.
The story didn't really catch my interest either, it was mostly a game to beat and nothing more. I also found it to be very linear. I was trying to trade it before but now I've decided to introduce it to my mother. (I tried to show her Myst but she didn't get the idea.)
I always play with subtitles, like Quaro suggested, so I was able to fast-forward most dialogue which is good since I'm not a game dialogue person. I like puzzles.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is that the game was good, but nothing special. It held no magic like Riven or DoTT.
