What Gamespot Users have to say about The Longest Journey

  • User Rating 9.3

    The longest journey is one of the best adventure games out there

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by winters2

    The longest journey is one of the best adventure games out there. I picked this game up after playing dreamfall (the sequel), and I was not disappointed. The graphics may be a bit out dated, but it's ...

    This game almost smell Norwegian! No, not salmon.

    I got this game as part of a box set with Dreamfall so I decided to play this game first to set the context. I enjoyed many hours trying to figure out the puzzles and also the story as I progressed...

    The Longest Journey is without a doubt one of the most immersive experiences I have ever encountered in a game. The storyline is so good that it would make a great book. This is a game that goes beyon...

    When everyone thought the adventure genre was dead, a sleeping giant awoke, and set the standard for story telling.

    Rated on August 05, 2004 by Alec-Eiffel

    Let me be blunt here, The Longest Journey not only contains the best story in any video game, it tells the greatest fictional story ever told. Our star is Gen Y'er, April Ryan. A confused art student ...

    Though it shows its age, it's a great story with many great elements

    Rated on September 23, 2009 by TheBatFreak777

    Some things should be said up front about this game. First, it definitely shows its age graphically. The graphics are certainly limited but it doesn't deteriorate from the overall game. Second, the...

    What a world to explore

    Maybe the best "science fiction-fairy tale-movie-pc game experience combination. A classic golden oldie!

    Rated on May 06, 2008 by Panos83

    Although "The Longest Journey" is old, still it's one of the best PC games ever. Simply classic. It's not only a point and click, search items, talk and solve puzzles type of adventure game. It's more...

    A Point and Click Adventure of a lifetime

    Rated on May 30, 2007 by Rockmanneo12

    You would think something like a point and click game would not gain a good rating or review from a hardcore gamer that plays a lot of First Person shooters. Well, here it is; I love a good story rega...
