    Next at number 24 we have Funcom’s 2006 adventure game for the PC, Xbox, and Xbox 360, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Take a look at the cinematic trailer!

    Dreamfall: The Longest journey is set ten years after its predecessor The Longest journey (released in 1999.) It follows characters Zoe Castillo, Kian Alvane and April Ryan – the main protagonist of the first game, in a story that deals with parallel worlds! Dreamfall is an effortless blend of futuristic sci-fi and nomadic fantasy. It really explores the adventure genre!

    Unfortunately, it hasn’t aged well in some areas. Compared to modern titles Dreamfall feels somewhat restricted in both the animation and level design. However, the Gameplay was sound with new combat and stealth elements integrated, resulting in general success.

    What makes this game is a well-woven story.

    It looks at a variety of themes such as religion, politics and power in these twin-worlds, whilst adding elements of the supernatural, technology and fantasy! The visuals reflect this unique title well by using rich imagery full of life and vibrancy. Combine this with wonderful voice-acting, quirky dialogue, and characters that are not only believable but likable and you have the makings of a true gem.

    Winner of a ‘Game of The Year Award’ the epic Dreamfall-adventure should not be missed hence its listing in our Top 25 Must Play Videogames! Now available for download on the Xbox 360, you too can experience the adventure!

    Did you know: Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is full of subtle cultural references; for example Wonkers the mechanical Gorilla is voiced by Jack Angel a.k.a. the voice of Teddy in Stephen Spielberg’s A.I.

    Interested in this game? Try Amazon.com or download now from Steam for the PC version!

    Happy Gaming!

      I’ve watched this being played and I agree it hasn’t aged that well. But, despite slightly clunky graphics and above mentioned game play, it has an excellent story line and likeable characters.

      @b4d08b01eaae0429f3640ba6e3917b62:disqus It definitely has that ‘can’t put it down’ quality, a story that good can be enjoyed repeatedly! :)

      @Michaeleuk:disqus The technical achievements in recent years doesn’t help haha! Agreed! The characters are unusual too but in the best way. I loved the voice acting. I’m probably a little biased though considering that they are practically all British lol

      Alright, so I have heard about Dreamfall before as the sequel to The Longest Journey (have not played The Longest Journey either) but I did not realize until today that one of fellow forum users on a board I frequent uses the avatar of the main character from Dreamfall. I did not realize until I saw this article and saw the picture above.

      Probably one of the best video games out there….if you are into games with deep plots. To think that it was released in 2006…the developers were way ahead of their time.

      What can I say. I fell in love with this game. It’s has amazing storyline.

      Yes! Dreamfall is one of my favorite games ever! Though The Longest Journey was better, despite the dated graphics. The characters, story, and backdrops are very engaging. Unfortunately, no one I know has heard of it. Can’t wait for Dreamfall Chapters!
