Best Adventure on the GBA

Snowy3, amazon.co.uk
10 July 2008
  • Summary: I was dubious about an adventure game on the gameboy. Don't they belong on PC's where you have keyboards and mice and things? obviously not!. This was the start (for me) of a long love affair with the Broken Sword games - until the one on the xbox that made me motion sick (but thats another story!). It works really well on the small screen and kept me absorbed for hours...yes hours not days as sadly it was over much too soon. But it was worth every second.

  • Summary: I wish i could go back through time to when games like this where still made..the 90's was the golden age for playstation 1 and games in general...timeless games like this and discworld fill me with such a happy feeling i can not describe which i havent felt since super nintendo days..i can still play these timeless games as it being cartoon 2D and it will not ever age...EVER...and still be lost in a timeless world.

Game review: Broken Sword

Paradis, Ciao
29 June 2004
  • Excerpt: "...it's 2D graphics... The story in Broken Sword is very good, in fact it has you eager to get to the next part, and the next. When people go to Paris as tourists, they go to see the beauty of the Parisienne skyline. They do not expect to be running around solving a mystery as George Stobbart, an American, and his girlfriend Nicole, do. But once they get drawn into it all, there is no stopping them, and they become entangled in a plot of intrigue and ...
  • Pros: Classic old game, still very playable
  • Cons: Non I could see

  • Excerpt: "...GBA and several games, including Broken Sword. I have Broken sword on the PC and love it to pieces, so I decided to buy it on GBA so I could take it with me on journeys. The story is the same as the PC version (which I will explain later), although some sections have been removed to reduce the size of the game .. obviously, I mean how much can you fit into a cartridge half the size of the palm of my hand!?! :o) It still doesn't take away any gaming ...
  • Pros: Great take any where game
  • Cons: has some of the original gameplay removed

Surprisingly Accomplished Conversion

M. D. Smart, amazon.co.uk
22 August 2002
  • Summary: 'Broken Sword' is one of the most famous and well-loved of point-and-click adventures, notable not only for its intriguing plot and well-designed puzzles, but also its very dry, very 'British' sense of humour. Happily, and incredibly, this conversion to the Gameboy Advance loses almost nothing from the PC/Playstation versions.

  • Summary: Broken sword is a great game with a gripping story line, its is 2 b enjoyed on a more inelectual basis but there is a lot of dry sarchasm to keep the player humoured throughout the game the only flaw of the game i can think of is the fact that it not long enough you are always worryed that it may end 2 fast, the graphics could be better but there detailed enough to show exactly wot is goin on and if the graphics were more detailed then the game wont be as long which wuld...

awesome game!

  • Summary: There is only one thing you need to know about this game; it's absolutely awesome. It's become a rarity these days but this game actually has a good story line that will keep you hooked right till the end. The graphics (although in still form) are perfect for the game and you are never confused with what's happening (which is vital). The gameplay is excellent; it's really rewarding when you start to unravel the plot.

Good port for a difficult genre.

Mr R Longworth, amazon.co.uk
26 March 2002
  • Summary: Let me start of by saying that this is not an action game but a graphic adventure. The orginal was a brilliant 2d graphic adventure for the PC. however most 2d graphic adventures make heavy use of the mouse. so I was rather suppriesed when I saw that It was being Ported to the GBA. I had played the demo version on the PC. I was curious to see what the differences would be between the PC and the GB version.
