Still collecting lots of screenshots from Dreamfall. Concerns about the plot abound, but visually this thing is just relentlessly good.
I will say this: Dreamfall is big, scenery-wise. How big? I would liken it to Final Fantasy X. It’s hard to judge, though. I’m sure I’ll beat this game in under 20 hours, and even a “quick” run through FFX is going to cost you about 60. However, if you removed all of the combat from FFX and reduced the game to travel time and cutscenes, I think you would be left with something the size of Dreamfall.
I’m not saying one is better than the other. A game which offers 100+ hours of game time is pretty great, but there is also a lot to love about a game which strips everything out except the essential parts: Character, story, and exploration. It offers these juicy morsels without distractions or filler. It’s like a box of Lucky Charms with all marshmellows and none of the cereal.
