TLJ is the standard by which all other story games are measured.

Don't think I'd quite go that far !! wink

I agree with Jenny: to have a 7 year span of comments on one game is most unusual. I only looked back at this review because my son, now 15, was interested in playing the game. I had no idea that a newer string of messages had been started.

I still think the game was too dialogue driven but it was a very visually stimulating game - - at least the parts I played struck me that way. I never did go back and finish it. For those who see H4XX0RZ on this site, that is my 15, going on 30, year old son! He's much more into MMORPG games and FPS games than I am though.

I bought the game about 2 years ago it was 2 games in one Dream Fall was included. I bought it because a lot of people were saying how great the game was. I never got very far in it, because there was too much dialogue and a lot of it had nothing to do with the game play headscratch. Also there was a lot of bad language smirk. It doesn't bother me if there is a little like in Still Life which I liked that game happydance. I just couldn't get into the game. I uninstalled it and placed it on the dislike pile of games which is a small pile, compared to all the games that I like which is on my book shelf. The games are starting to out number the books. I treasure my games like I do my books catrub.

Trinny, your complaints were not uncommon.

I really didn't get into the game until we got to the fantasy part wave

i agree with looney4labs. the game was hard to get into so much walking. when i got to the fantasy part things changed. i would say that 3/4 of the game was unforgettable. the underwater part was so good that i kept it on my pc so i could go back and replay that part over and over again. beautiful graphics.

Hi- thumbsup

I bought this game when it first came out and I have played it twice now, both times enjoying it very much. For some reason, I did not pay attention to the bad language, I just remember it is a long game, but I like a long game and this is one of my keepers. I was surprised to see a thread on it again, so thought I would put in my two cents. I would much rather play a game like TLJ than any kind of a shooter,, escept Space Siege of course.

Sasrr, I loved those underwater parts too.

Maggie, I will definitely replay it at some point.

I'd love to have a game set only in the fantasy world, but then, fantasy is my favorite genre wave

I played this game when I was first coming back to gaming
and it took some getting use to, the dialog, I changed my
expectations, I decided it was like getting into a GOOD book
that if I wanted to enjoy it, I would embrace it, from that
time On, It got better for me, I have the same problem with
reading sometimes wishing they would GET on WIth it, but then
the ground work in the LONGEST JOURNEY made it so awesome,
for me to know April, I really looked forward to Dreamfall and
was disappointed with the Action, as much as I tried to embrace it,
my old brain cells just dont work that well LOL
anyway, I plan to replay it, one of the few games I will replay,
that and Syberia, smile and some puzzle games, like Jewels Quest
