5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Game, Four and a Half, 12 Jun. 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Longest Journey (PC DVD ROM) (Video Game)
The Longest Journey is a long, interesting and beautifully designed 'point and click' adventure with an absorbing story and great characters. It's not a shoot 'em up or action game, and all the better for it.

There's a lot of dialogue, but it's central to the story and you can skip it if you wish via the 'esc' button. However, if you do, you may miss some clues.

The graphics and rendered backgrounds are excellent, although character mvement is a little stilted at times. The only minus of this game is that a very few of the puzzles and tasks are really quite illogical and may have you consulting a walkthrough.

The 'Explosiv' DVD release is XP compatible, whereas the original isn't. It seems to work fine on XP with the occasional crash if you double-click on the mouse (which makes the character run) too much.

This is actually a far better game than its sequel (Dreamfall) and is great value.
