** The direction April's character arc took in ''Dreamfall'' has been controversial, to say the least. While some ''TLJ'' fans agreed with the writers that her attitude in ''Dreamfall'' is a [[SoWhatDoWeDoNow realistic outcome of her sacrifices and traumas]] in the first game, others argue that the April from ''TLJ'' had enough mental resilience to work through them. WordOfGod [[https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2008/08/20/ragnar-tornquist-on-dreamfall-faith/ back in 2008]] was that the events immediately after ''TLJ'' are crucial to understanding the massive change in her character... too bad that they've nevered detailed said events anywhere, and likely never will, now that ''TLJ Home'' has been effectively canceled.

** The direction that April's character arc took in ''Dreamfall'' has been controversial, to say the least. While some ''TLJ'' players agreed that her attitude in ''Dreamfall'' is a logical outcome of the traumas she suffered in the first game, others argue that the ''TLJ''!April had enough mental resilience to work through it. WordOfGod from [[https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2008/08/20/ragnar-tornquist-on-dreamfall-faith/ back in 2008]] is that the events in her life immediately after ''TLJ'' are crucial to understanding the massive change in her disposition... too bad that details of said events have never been revealed to anyone outside the dev team, and likely never will anymore, now that ''TLJ Home'' has been effectively canceled.

* FridgeHorror: When Zoë returns to Casablanca at the end of the game, she can stop by Olivia's store to find that it's closed, and Olivia is never spoken to again in the game. Dreamfall Chapters reveals [[spoiler: That Olivia was killed in an "accident" - meaning she could have already died before the events of the game is over.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyMechanic: The combat and stealth sections. Ignoring the question of whether someone playing an AdventureGame would want to do those sort of things, and whether they count as padding, the combat is slow and unresponsive but can forced through by mashing the heavy attack button, and the game is finicky about what makes a sound when you step on it in the stealth segments.

** April Ryan. [[TheLongestJourney The entire last game]] was [[spoiler: building up to the fact that she will be the next Guardian]], but things turned out to be the complete opposite. And now April is roaming Arcadia without any purpose, with a traumatic experience that makes her no good, unable to go back home, unable to find her peace and having lost many of her friends and dear ones. And just when [[spoiler: she may have found someone she may be able to trust, [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle comes the ending]]...]]
