Summary: This game won't appeal to everyone. For a start it's a point and click adventure with at frequent times long lengthy complex dialogue. Movement especially in the troll like caves bit was horrendous and the fighting is also hard as invariably it is your character you are playing who looses and not your opponent. That aside the attention to detail both in story and graphics is impressive with you the player immersed into a epic story.
Summary: i love point and click games so although this has been out a few years it had good reviews and i decided to try it. i found the auto save a problem because if i had missed something going back could be difficult. The game is good but not as enjoyable as some, broken sword and syberia for instance and controlling character movement is truly irritating.
Summary: The problem with Dreamfall is that it almost isn't a game. Sure there are gameplay elements and inter-activity, of sorts, but more so than any other graphical adventure I've played you feel more like a passenger than anything else.>Dreamfall has, unquestionably, the most sophisticated, complex and well told storyline of any game I know. It's part science-fiction, part fantasy, part conspiracy thriller and there's a even nod towards romantic fiction.
