Turns out, we do not allow drama on HG.

I've never actually played Longest Journey despite owning it forever -- which seems to be something I say a lot about a lot of games -- but I still enjoyed this review. I don't think I'll agree with it, but who knows? I did love Dreamfall and all TLJ fans seem to bag on that all the time.


For us. For them. For you.

Whoa... did all the messages get deleted? That... doesn't make sense, unless I missed something outrageous.

The last comment I made was made in jest, so I hope I didn't inadvertently spark a flame war...

Erm, yeah, what was wrong with this thread? Last I saw, it was just me and Zipp saying we disagreed with the review.

Well, I reread the review, and some things still don't sit right with me.

I repeat, blaming a game for not running on XP or Vista is like blaming the yummy bagel for being burnt in your toaster. The problem is XP, not the game.

Also, the voice acting complaint... you complain about ONE area where the game seems to suffer (though if I recall, the bird people speak with one voice for a reason), and then claim it as a huge issue.

Finally, you give the game an 8 despite writing a pretty negative review. There's just no continuity to this review, and I'm just not sure what you were trying to say.

I haven't played TLJ for years, but I don't remember the voice acting grating in the slightest, anywhere.

I actually think it's one of the best voice acted games in video game history. But then, that can be said of a lot of Adventure Games. The VA is such an important part of that genre.
