By far the richest adventure game I've ever played, and not as annoying in fighting and sneaking as some have said.

With that being said, I do feel they skimped a tiny bit on the intellectual puzzles, as compared to the original Journey. I replayed the original in preparation, and found the traditional Adventuring to be much more complex and involved than in Dreamfall. These chapters I feel move a bit too fast, containing usually only one chain of puzzles plus an Action sequence and, of course, the requisite character and plot development. I would have preferred that they ADDED Action sequence, rather than REPLACING an Adventure sequence with an Action sequence.
Aside from technical gameplay (Action/Adventure), there's the issue of presentation and narrative, which, if given the opportunity, I would rate a solid 11. The sets are mindblowingly beautiful, to say the least. And yet they still somehow pale in comparison to the story and dialogue writing. Couple this with voice acting far and away better than most movies I've seen, beautifully rendered and animated characters (including a heroine that is clearly attractive without being generically "boobed up"), and characters so deep and multifaceted that you can literally get lost in conversation with them (example: Benrime at the Journeyman Inn), and you've got a game that will repeatedly make your jaw drop.
