Stunning

Easily one of the best adventure games ever made, and is up there with LucasArts/Sierra's output. It's VERY long (hence the title) so you get your money's worth. The plot is epic and can get a little confusing at times, but the storytelling is wonderful and keeps a focus on character. Conversations can be a little long-winded in the beginning, but for adventure fans that shouldn'tread more be off-putting.
Quite an adult game too, the dialogue is mature and intelligent, there's quite a bit of swearing and some nudity throughout. The puzzles range from clever to illogical to obvious and it's likely you will get stuck a few times.
Overall, a beautiful game. It has a sequel (Dreamfall) and will hopefully be continued eventually with the episodic Dreamfall Chapters.

This game probably has the best story of any game EVER! Beyond that it is also a very good point-and-click adventure game.
I have the steam version and the game looks great if you force Edge-Detect Anti-Aliasing in the Catalyst Control Center, unfortunatly the mouse pointer gets buggy and ruins it, hopefully in this version this is fixed, even if it's not Nvidia user might haveread more better luck.
I think the background images are pre-rendered so a lot of them look pretty great for a 8-9 year old game(even without AA), even if you can't use AA and have to play with a blocky April(like me) the game is well worth it definetly one of the BEST $10 I EVER SPENT!!!
