Check out the review of the game here: The Longest Journey Review
There are a lot of really good games out there, but The Longest Journey is in a class of its own, halfway between “timeless old game” and “legitimately awesome adventure.” Basically, you’re doing yourself a major disservice by missing out on the game, especially since April Ryan is a great character who also happens to be surprisingly believable. She’s not a superhero by any means and has trouble dealing with everything happening around her, yet she’s also surprisingly strong at points. There’s also a hilarious amount of sarcasm and great music. It’s just an all-around great game, and one that absolutely blew me away.
It’s worth mentioning that you’re apparently able to change the font with a patch or something. I kind of like it the way it is, though.
