Generally speaking, it seems like a lot of the complaints seem to center around the gameplay being non-existent, puzzles too easy, the combat not being very interesting, etc. Honestly, none of this matters a whole lot to me. As far as The Longest Journey goes, I primarily remember the "game" aspects of it for being kind of nonsensical (I definitely had to look up solutions to a few of the puzzles, because they seemed to be completely random). I loved the Longest Journey though for the characters, the dialogue, the music and the general atmosphere and worlds it created. And while I may not remember the specific details of solving a particular puzzle, etc. the Longest Journey is still a game I remember fondly for the things like story, characters and music..... it sounds like whatever complaints there are about Dreamfall, it is top-notch in regards to these areas (although there have been references to the ending leaving a lot of loose-ends..... but I've also heard of people refer to this whole thing being a trilogy, so is it safe to assume that this was done with the assumption there would be a third game in the series as well), so I will gladly buy it and enjoy it.
