  1. There are just enough puzzles to keep me interested and sucked into this beautiful world of AnaCapri.
  2. The makers should be commended on another fine effort.
  3. It was more like a nightmare than a dream for me. I didn’t enjoy any part of the game, and I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody.
  4. It is, to the best of my knowledge, the biggest point-and-click, real-world-image game ever created. Sadly, in all other respects, it gives even the least of its peers nothing to aspire to. It doesn't take long to realize that the full screen images of Anacapri (the place) are the only good thing about the game.
  5. So, this is a pretty ordinary game that has potential in some areas.
  6. Anacapri has more in common with the ancient gameplay of early '90s adventures than anything modern, but even as a pseudo-nostalgia piece, it's no fun at all.
  7. Apart from its bonus Exploration option(a travelogue mode where you can hop to the island's prettier locales), Anacapri: The Dream is as compelling as cold espresso. [Dec 2007, p.76]

    I have the clear impression that the low score comes from people who played the game only for 15 minutes then used a walkthrough.

If you really play the game carefully as you should do as an adventure gamer, there is only one word to judge this game: "beautiful". GS Expand

    I really enjoyed this game. I got it for Chrstimas and spent many chilly nights feeling like I was visiting a restful warm and beautiful I really enjoyed this game. I got it for Chrstimas and spent many chilly nights feeling like I was visiting a restful warm and beautiful place. The puzzles were great fun, not too easy. Some of the actor's voices were really good and some were rough, but it just added to the charm of this great game. Do another one, let us that can't afford to travel experience arm chair adventures! . Expand

    A nice travelogue, but a confusing, strange and muddled game. Also, much too long and problems running properly in Vista.
