Excellent adventure with clunky controls.

  • Summary: The game has a great story, interesting characters, and sometimes challenging puzzles--although, the game allows you to request extra hints. Some of the reviews I read about the game raved about the use of the creative use of the dual screen for cut-scene animations; however, this is not a reason to...

  • Summary: I picked up this game after reading all of its positive reviews and about how it is considered a classic in the genre. Apparently it's a port of a PC game of the same name, but I only got into adventure gaming on the DS so I haven't played the original.

Fun, but a bit slow and too easy

  • Summary: A classic point-and-click adventure game. Not in league with Monkey Island 2, but then again, no games are. The storyline is well written but based around too much talking to other people, which makes the game a bit slow.

  • Summary: This is a great point and click adventure. I never played the original title back in 96 and I am glad they decided to port it on to the ds. Great story with deadly clowns and other interesting characters. Some of the puzzles are a bit dumb but overall they fit well into the game.

A good mystery.

  • Summary: I remember playing this and all in the series many years ago on the PC so I am pleasantly surprised how good the graphics are. After all this is Nintendo. My only gripe is that the characters do not speak. All conversations are done via balloon encased text.

  • Summary: It was no Longest Journey but it was close... was a bit frustrating sometimes when you wanted a hint so you would click for one and they gave you a hint on an action you had already done so I ended up with far more hints used then what was needed.

  • Excerpt: I have always been a fan of point and click games, so when I heard that one of my favorites was going to be made for the DS, I knew I had to have it. Broken Sword is a great murder mystery game that has been made for many platforms in the past with the most popular being on the PC.
  • Pros: addictive

The best ds game ever... says Melissa aged 12.

  • Summary: Broken sword is a great game both pc and ds version. The game is made up of little puzzles and the storyline is a very complex and compeling. I'd say this game can be played by children 10 over and a good game throughout.
