The Longest Journey is considered by many to be one of the best point and click adventures games of time. Despite it being dated by 15 years and some very high expections on my end, it does manage to live up to the hype that surrounded it so many years ago. A very impressive and rewarding journey that should be taken by anyone with a love for classic P&C adventures.
+Incredibly massive, well told story - This thing is huge, running the gamut from fantasy to sci-fi.
+Really likable characters - April Ryan might be one of my favorite female protagonists in gaming.
+SOLID voice acting
+An endless amount of beautiful scenery. Even by today's standards, most of the backgrounds look great.
-Really dated characters appearance and animation - Welcome back to the days of low poly
-Some pretty wonky sound mixing
-THE SLOWEST, NON-SKIPPABLE animations ever witnessed. You will feel like 20% of your playtime is spent watching April run across the screen then back again. Watching a character leave the scene after a conversation. Watching a character enter the scene. Watching someone pick somthing up...put something down....ANOTHER CROW FLYING ANIMATION.... these will all be unskippable and PAINFULLY slow animations that you will just have to sit and bear. We had more patience in the 90's.
