Even after you’ve finished the game, you’ll be imagining and wondering the answers to characters’ motivations, backgrounds, and futures.100Evil Avatar
An adventure masterpiece…the best adventure game I’ve ever played.100Yahoo!
It’s got great graphics, superb dialogue, and unforgettable characters, but the genre-bending story will keep graphic adventure fans glued to the screen.100GamePro
A magnum opus. Even though it does have some small flaws and a couple of things I would change, it is absolutely breathtaking in all respects. They just don’t get any better than this.100Four Fat Chicks
The best adventure game in years. That’s one of the easier ways to describe The Longest Journey. It’s also the longest, the most rewarding and the most mature.100Daily Radar

Be warned, this is a game with unprecedented story depth but at the price of pacing. Some key soliloquies can drag on for 15 minutes.75GamePower
This Journey won’t be to everyone’s taste, but for those who salivate at the idea of one of the best-written graphical adventures ever seen, it’s one well worth taking.75Gaming Age
Definitely not the kind of game everyone will appreciate and, in fact, may be unplayable after five minutes for some gamers.70All Game Guide
I completed this game and never got the appeal and hype. There are plenty of better adventure games from around the same year or even years before it.60mugsy
