    In other words, it's prescribed, with reservations, for patient The Longest Journey zealots only. [Jun 2006, p.115]
  2. Fighting is a joke, the game seems to involve far too much stealth for its own good, and the single gameplay improvement they've made provides you exactly zero real benefit.

    Edited down to a tight package this could probably make a pretty good machinima feature (or Sci-Fi original motion picture for that matter). But as a game, it fails.

    The same in-depth story/clever dialog that you have come to expect from the original "Longest Journey" are in this sequel. However you, in no The same in-depth story/clever dialog that you have come to expect from the original "Longest Journey" are in this sequel. However you, in no way control any of the events that transpire, and have no control over where conversations go. The gameplay and fight system are extremely boring, and uninvolving. I would enjoy seeing this in a movie, rather than "playing" through it as a videogame. Full Review »
