  • Summary: Brilliant game it kept me intrigued throughout the whole story. It's long with various locations, and very enjoyable! (Though the Syria parts were somewhat racist...

  • Summary: Played this game years ago when it first came out for PC. Now I believe the Director's Cut is a huge improvement, and gives an old fan excuse to play the game again. Only recommend if you like point and click style adventure games. Only downside for some might be the 2D cartoon style graphics, but if you can look past that, you will find a masterpiece of game here.

  • Summary: Astonishing game!!!! The puzzles, the story, the dialogs, the scenarios, everything in the game is awesome. It makes you wanna play at once. Amazing! But the original version is better...

  • Summary: Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars is not a bad point and click game but it isn't very good either. The story is there, the characters can be interesting despite the odd voice acting and there's quite a bit of humour to be found but it is just so terribly slow-paced. Only recommended for die-hard point-and-click adventure fans.

  • Summary: For fans of Longest Journey, Still Life, Secret Files et al, Broken Sword (all three game episodes), is up there with the best of them, Fine, so the graphics are old, but the story is great, great voice acting (first game especially with the French female accent), some very funny scripting, and getting the balance just right on puzzle solving and how much to-and-fro there is to do. Loved playing all three. Happy to recommend all them to point-and-click fans.

  • Summary: Better game than The Longest Journey. There, I said it. Treason! The story to this game is filled with laughs, sly wit, and over the top spoofs and in its own way is every bit as good of a narrative as TLJ. Once you move away from the story elements Broken Sword shows itself in every way to be the superior game.

  • Summary: This is a decent point and click adventure--made me feel like I was part of a Johnny Quest cartoon. The story is an engaging history lesson in 14th century Templar Knights and the voice acting is well done. It is a very casual adventure; the puzzles are extremely easy, plus the blue markers remove any difficulty in finding whatever you need, plus there is a hint system in the unlikely event you get stuck.

  • Summary: 9.5 score in reality. This game is a masterclass of how to make an adventure game and one of the very few adventure games that can live with the classic Lucasarts titles. New content adds a bit to the game but it's the 14 year old content that still steals the show for me. The main feature being a story that is so good that if it were to be made into a film, I would be in the cinema watching it now.

  • Summary: You really feel like you are in crime scene investigation. A guy died and now you have to find out why. Besides you have a personal interest in this case: he knew your father. You have to look for evidence, find clues, understand why something is happening. It really looks like the Da vincci Code and rofessor Layton's series.
