Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars
Game Over Online
6 June 2002
Excerpt: Broken Sword as a franchise was an oft-heard name last decade when the PC version debuted in the very beginnings of the adventure genre slump. Known then as Circle of Blood, it garnered critical praise but failed to really capture a popular audience; an audience already disillusioned with the offerings of then adventure gaming stalwart, Sierra Online. Now rechristened more appropriately as The Shadow of Templars, Broken Sword is transformed into a handheld title.
Excerpt: Templar will take Stobbart through many locales in Europe in his attempt
to track down the holders of the manuscript, which dates back to the
medieval order of The Knights Templar. While Templar is a mystery
adventure game through and through, its story incorporates a great deal
of factual history on the Knights Templar making its conclusion all the
more tantalizing to uncover. For much of Templar, Stobbart will be
conversing with people.
