    Boring puzzles and at times jarring low-budget visuals stir a lot of negative emotions, but all this anger and frustration will be wiped away by the narrative tide of sincere emotions and soothing nostalgia. Ragnar Tornquist creates colorful character, and writes witty dialogue; he knows how to carry on the intrigue, make you laugh and, when the gods of drama demand it, sucker-punch you with full force.

    You have to run a lot in Dreamfall Chapters, but it is still an enjoyable story and an ending to a long journey. The story elements are in focus as the puzzles are usually rather simple and straightforward.

    Last chapter of a game shouldn’t be “just another adventure”, but a final that nicely ties up all loose threads. Unfortunately, Dreamfall Chapters’ ending leaves enough of those to knit a whole sweater for Christmas. [Issue#211, p.65]

    Dreamfall Chapters is a mess of a game, with both story and gameplay segments varying wildly in quality. That said, it is still a must-play for all fans of the series. There are very few games that attempt to weave such an ambitious narrative. [Aug 2016]

    Dreamfall Chapters is a satisfactory successor to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, but not a good enough game in its own right. [09/2016, p.46]

    Successful adventure offers a satisfactory ending of a saga. Its advantages include excellent atmosphere and screenwriting, fantastic dubbing and an interesting story. Pity there is also wrong pace of the game in its first half, a lot of unnecessary running, and some not-so-imaginative puzzles. Even though the positives far outweigh the negatives and game can be recommended to adventure fans.

    An ambitious sequel to 2006’s Dreamfall, Chapters is worth playing to see how the saga ends but doesn’t hold up as a standalone adventure.

    For those who have endured the long journey (I just did that...) from Dreamfall to what would become Dreamfall Chapters, I can only tell youFor those who have endured the long journey (I just did that...) from Dreamfall to what would become Dreamfall Chapters, I can only tell you that the wait was well worth it. As someone who loved The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, I was hoping that the series would one day continue, and here we are. Not only is this exactly what a fan of the series would want, it improves on Dreamfall. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful series. Expand

    Not much of a review, because i am too biased.

    Not much of a review, because i am too biased.

    The longest journey is the best adventure i played, Dreamfall is my favourite storybased game, and chapters just continues.

    To be more objective - it is less a "game" and more a "story" - or lets say - game elements won t get in the way of the story too much. TLJ was a better "game" than Dreamfall for sure. - Chapters tries to mix it up a little bit - offering more gameplay than "go from A to B and watch the next cutscene".

    chapters looks great, has a great soundtrack and feels very good. If you loved Dreamfall, i am sure you love chapters, too.

    I liked The Longest Journey. I loved Dreamfall. But I can't start liking this game. The story is OK, and it actually is one of the things thatI liked The Longest Journey. I loved Dreamfall. But I can't start liking this game. The story is OK, and it actually is one of the things that make me want to play. Some characters and their interactions are also well-written and keep be coming back here. However, the game itself is poor. There's a lot of running involved, and although the maps aren't that big, you will find yourself running in circles looking for a specific person with very vague instructions how to find them. At times certain tasks just seem like padding out the playtime of the game. The same goes for the child intermissions - a set of frustrating tasks that seem totally pointless. Furthermore, thy rely on you having played the previous games recently, and, for example, remembering the plot outline. I played TLJ over 10 years ago - how the heck am I supposed to remember which of to characters did I meet first?
    All these side tasks are frustrating, repetitive and do not bring the story forward. I have nothing against interactive movies (I love Heavy Rain), but this one plays like a chore, to the point that even the story does not seem rewarding enough.
