I have played about 13 hours of the game now, with those 13 hours being the absolute limit where I've pushed myself until I finally hit my wall and said enough is enough. You see Dreamfall Chapters just wasn't for me, and there was a number of reasons why this was the case, with the most important one simply being I found the story after the promising start just totally dull and lifeless. That promising start gave me hope, but I soon found myself playing characters I could not care less about, with gameplay that just started to become annoying and tedious the more time went on. Most of the time I felt like I was just watching the worst movie ever, with my only interaction being that of a choice I made that felt like a pointless choice at that on a number of occasions. I just stopped caring for both Zoe and the other character Kian, getting to the point of pressing skip on the long-winded moments of what felt like pointless speeches when it came to progressing the story.
Then finally just how the game looks, where in a day and age gamers are paying big money to play games on looks alone, here we have something that runs like I'm playing BC title on my Xbox One. I'm all for bigging up a poor looking game if it shines in other areas, but Dreamfall Chapters for me just doesn't do that, and I've really racked my brain to have a positive part of this review for it, and I just can't find one.
Overall: I could go on and on about what Dreamfall Chapters does wrong, but why kick something when it is clearly tapping out. Dreamfall Chapters is currently selling on disc form on the Internet for around £19.99. In return for your cash Dreamfall Chapters offers a lifeless world filled with characters that offer no connection to them, while at the same time telling you a dull story that you will not care about the more it goes on. All the time this is going on though you are forced to use a run button that makes you feel like you are playing as old age pensioner. One word. Avoid
Opening section and Baby level
