  • Excerpt: Circle of Blood It’s a beautiful day in Paris and a young American, George Stobbart, is relaxing at the table of a sidewalk café. From out of nowhere a clown appears. Party, anyone? Within seconds a man is dead and George is flailing around in the patio umbrella while debris scatters around him.

  • Excerpt: This game is a real winner!  It combines the very best aspects of traditional adventure games and mystery thrillers, with even a little romance thrown in for good measure, and a suspenseful and slowly evolving story that will keep you glued to your seat.

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Portable Review
23 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Adventure games are a dying breed. Ten to fifteen years ago, the video game market was filled with quality titles like Sam and Max Hit the Road, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, Full Throttle, Leisure Suit Larry...the list goes on and on. These games were light on action, but they told incredible stories, often with plenty of humor, and gorgeous graphics and environments.

  • Excerpt: In 1995, Revolution released Broken Sword: Circle of Blood on the PC to critical and commercial success in Europe. Revolution followed the PC release with a European Playstation port in 1996 and a domestic Playstation port in 1998 (renamed, you guessed it, Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars), to critical success but marginal commercial sales.

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Nintendo World Report
7 July 2002
  • Summary: PC-style adventure comes to GBA. Whether you’re a fan of the original game or new to the series, see how Broken Sword stacks up.
  • Pros: A control scheme that feels natural and well thought out., Although much is lost in the transition, the hand-drawn graphics still shine., A very deep and extensive story with interesting historical references.
  • Cons: A few puzzles that will stump you even after you know the answer., Loss of voice acting bogs down much of the original game’s style and humor.
