Ana, it took me a while to really get into Dreamfall. I had to get "past" the interface, but once I did that, I was captivated wave

Get someone to play the beginning of the game for you Ana. It was a good game to play and I did enjoy it.....even the action parts!

The first part of Dreamfall with Zoe was a dream, the rest was a nightmare. 'Nuff said! Well, I do want to add that was only my take on the game.

Dreamfall had only 1 good thing and it was it's story line. The rest was horrible. They should stick to point'n click. the combat system was hardly even a system. This game didn't even required a combat system.
Why game developers don't get it! Why fix something that isn't broken? sigh...

There's always a tension between innovation and the tried-and-true.

I don't like combat, personally. But I thought it was important in this game to play a combat sequence as April so that you could see what she had become as a result of war, the pressures of leadership, and the sense that she could never return home.

Sierramindy, I had a hard time getting used to the interface, but once I did that and figured out how to get past the challenge in the underground, I loved it. I even loved the sneaking--it sure got my attention and got my heart beating.

Sinotek, did you not enjoy the graphics? I simply adored the Dark Peolple's city. I would live there if I could.

I was really into the game--I couldn't sleep last night because
Click to reveal..
I kept trying to answer some of the questions the ending raised for me.


That's what makes gaming so fun---we all have such differing tastes :witch:

Yes, I agree L4L - Dark People's city was so cool! My favorite place was April's home in Casablanca...(wish I lived there) wink


I really lost myself in that game - it was great. I had to get used to the controls, but it wasn't that difficult - and the combat was easy enough to get by (thank goodness!) :witch: wave

Edit: Oops - I mean't Zoe's home in Casablanca (I get those 2 mixed up)

I agree with you, looney4labs. Once I got used to the controls & got them set to a way that worked for me, I enjoyed the game a lot. I'm glad that you enjoyed the game too! smile It certainly was a beautiful game just like TLJ. And you're right too about the story leaving you a lot to think about. I probably will have to play it again sometime just to get all the details I missed.

I didn't mind the combat at all, though I've played some action/combat games too, and I can see how people that are strictly adventure gamers wouldn't be able to get past that.

Renee--that's too funny because I read it and didn't catch it. I knew what you meant.

Jess, I too have played a few RPG's on consoles and one on the PC so I could do the combat though I didn't like it. I didn't mind the sneaking though.

It's one of the few games that I really would like to play over again. If I weren't otherwise busy, I would have started a new game as soon as I finished the first, partly because I had a month long playing break in the middle of the game and I'm wondering what I forgot lol

Hi looney4labs, The Longest Journey & Dreamfall are two of my favourite games - I'm really glad that you got a chance to play them. I thought the controls were awkward for Dreamfall but as I was used to playing things on consol I bought a gamepad & found it more comfortable to use. Please Ana - persevere with Dreamfall - it is such an engaging story - well worth the trouble! smile

Chrissie, I think part of my problem is I couldn't make up my mind what to use. I tried a little of this, a little of that, and a bit of the other until I finally decided how I wanted the game configured and stuck with it. lol

This game had so much going for it, won so many awards, and seemed to have everything that would attract gamers from other genres as well as adventure gamers. Why didn't it literally "fly" off of store shelves? Why wasn't it a remarkable best seller?

Becky, I don't think it would necessarily attract gamers from other genres. The fighting and sneaking was not nearly intense enough or often enough for most fans of that type of game (thinking of my sons here), and there was a lot of dialogue. I loved it for that reason. I almost felt like I was watching an interactive movie.
