It's the best adventure game I have played. The solutions to the puzzles are never completely bizarre or ridiculously simple. Just right for a casual gaming experience.
be warned the graphics are pretty bad

story is very good if you like sci.fi and although the characters are graphically challenged :-P the backgrounds are stunning works of art on their own. The music is worth mentioning too.

IMO this journey is much better then that second dreamfall crap

Definitely one of the best - if not the best adventure game I've ever played. It is thoughtful and beautiful and clever. The characters are perfect, the world has a sense of scale, and the puzzles are interesting.

I'd say the top spot is a toss-up between The Longest Journey and Grim Fandango, for me. Both are wonderful because they do some wonderful things stylistically, but I think I'd go for Longest Journey. I think GF had a higher production value but something about TLJ tugs at the heart strings in a way that years later I still feel very sentimental about the title.

I should replay it, it's been a long while.
