It's not a bad game. I stopped half way because I had to reinstall but saved the save somewhere. I will prolly install it soon. The graphics are pretty good. The ground lighting at daylight is pretty good. Only thing I don't like is the character switching, but if you're looking for a great story, it's for you.
Oh and btw, on like 12x10 resolution its at constant 100 fps maxed out.

And again.... i'm still the only one who is placing pics info etc.... could be handy for some who are looking into this thread

Dreamfall


Story:

Casablanca, 2219Zoë Castillo is about to get involved in a conspiracy that spans parallel worlds and hundreds of years.Something is affecting our world: static interference disrupts technology, and it seems to be linked to a ghostly presence seen only by a few – a presence inhabiting a black house in a wintry landscape.As Zoë begins her search for a lost friend, she discovers that there is a magical world behind our own – and the search is now on for the one person who may help Zoë unravel the dangerous web she has become entangled in:April Ryan.

Setting:

Stark, post-CollapseTen years ago, something happened…No one can remember exactly what happened, or why, but it changed the world. Completely.After almost two centuries of complete freedom, we were trapped, earthbound, the skies above us closed, cities on the other side of our planet inaccessible. For a time, we were powerless, frozen, shocked into silence by events that we couldn't explain or understand......and then, slowly but surely, we picked up the pieces and moved on. A week, maybe two, and civilisation brushed off the dust of the past and set its sight on the future. So we couldn't fly without wings anymore. So we couldn't communicate with those who had moved beyond our space. After all, we had lived like this before, and we could do so again.In a post-Collapse Stark, alternative methods of transportation soon appeared. Together with the Vactrax, one of the earliest, and most popular, was the hydrofoil.Moving at impossible speeds close to the ocean surface, the hydrofoil connected us again with our relatives on the other side of the Earth. Before Vactrax tunnels snaked their way to every major city, the hydrofoils were indispensable. And they are still in use, particularly across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans - connecting major cities like, for example, Newport and Wati City.Ten years on, humanity has learned to live in a changed world, and while the memory of the Collapse lingers, it's not something we dwell on. So we don't quite know what happened, and we can't really recall the details of those dark days, but life goes on, we have regained our freedom, our wings, and the future is as bright as it ever was.WATIcorp: Building Your FutureWATIcorp is one of the world's most powerful corporations.Even before the release of the first - and wildly popular - Watilla, WATI was a leading manufacturer of robotic and animatronic toys and household utilities. But it was the aforementioned toy that made the corporation into the financial and political powerhouse that it is today. Based in the corporate town of Wati City in Northern Japan, WATIcorp currently employs tens of thousands of people - and robots - across the world, and their museum is a shrine for fans.But while the Watilla is still popular, like all good things, it can't last forever. And now, finally, after years of wild rumours and few firm facts, WATI is only months away from the launch of their most important product in decades - perhaps forever:AlcheraShrouded in utmost secrecy, WATIcorp has released absolutely no information regarding their upcoming product, sans its codename and an enticing tagline:"Your wildest dreams will come true."The world is holding its breath. WATI has never disappointed before.

A small review. I would have made a different thread but I don't know how to post pictures of the game.

Finally managed to get around to starting it and finished it within a few days. I really enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would have. A lot of people seem to have had a problem with the ending. To me the ending was perfect for such a storyline.

I wouldn't call this game an action-adventure. It is one hell of an adventure. Just not very much action is to be found in this game. The storyline more than makes up for that. I enjoyed the plot so much that I honestly didn't miss the action at all. I actually couldn't wait to get past some of the action points so I could get back to the games awesome plot.

The biggest delta of this game is the combat system. I hated it. However, you don't fight very much at all, so the combat system wasn't really an issue. A couple of times I was able to actually talk my way out of a fight by making good conversation. A few of the puzzles required some thinking. But most were super easy. So it's not a very challenging game at all.

What the game really has going on for is the storyline. I love the characters of this game. I felt like I could really relate to them and the problems they had to face. Each with their own different personality that really showed well throughout the game. Despite the easiness of the game. The plot gets really deep and dark which could be why it's rated M.

When I brought this game I was looking forward to some action. I didn't find that. What I found however might have been one of the best stories I've ever heard. I highly recommend it to anyone who cares about plots. There's a lot to be missed by skipping out on this one. I say a hours playing time and you will not be able to put it down till it's over. It's that good.

Recommend System Requirements. P4 2.5 or Amd 3500/1 gig of ram/256 mb video card/ sound blaster x-fi card( had to play it without the sound card).
