"My all time favourite"
5 stars"

This is a fantastic game. The worldwide reviews were excellent and at first I thought it was media hype. But after playing the game, I have to agree.

The story line is one that kept my interest up. The graphics are very clear. I spent long nights playing the game, only because I wanted to see what was going to happen next in the storyline. I would describe it as a movie or soap opera that you can pause and come back too.

It is by far the best adventure game I have played. Full marks. I have the sequel in my collection and can't wait to play that.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

but this version being sold is the older four CD version (which I believe is not the one pictured) and there can be issues with running it on Windows XP. So while the game is great unless you don't mind spending some time trying to figure how to get it to run well you might be better off looking for the two CD or DVD versions which are compatible with XP.


The Longest Journey takes place 200 years into the future in a world based on science and technology. You play the 18 year-old art student April Ryan. She's an ordinary girl who all of a sudden gets her life turned upside down as she discovers the existence of a parallel world full of magic and strange creatures. April Ryan has the power to shift between these two worlds, and she soon discovers that she has a very important mission in life. The game is packed with amazing graphics, motion captured characters appearing in full 3D, challenging puzzles, and features 50 speaking characters, 160 detailed locations and about 30 minutes of movie sequences.
