  • Summary: Although the art and music are up to par, this game is a significant downgrade from the previous game in the series as far as writing and gameplay are concerned. The characters are cardboard cutouts of their previous selves, and dialogue is forced at best and poorly scripted - at times accidentally...

  • Summary: This is one of the best games of all time, just as good as the first broken sword if not better, the story and characters are brilliant and Stobbart is compelling. I played the first two games in my mid teens and I can say its the only game to ever have a lasting influence on me.

  • Summary: What the hell is wrong with the critics!? This is one of the BEST adventures of ALL-TIME, and almost equally good as BS1! Really, MW3 has a better Metascore? Pfh....

  • Summary: I actually agree with BadByron's view but I will give it a slightly higher rating. All things considered this is still a decent game. It's also a let down from the first one. The major difference is that the first one was a work of art; it was crafted.

  • Summary: In a nutshell, it's Broken Sword minus the heart. The developers killed everything I loved about the strong characters in the original Broken Sword... okay, George is still a little funny, but nothing in comparison to the belly laughs I got playing the first game in the series.

  • Summary: An worthy sequel. It may be more linear than the first, but the luscious visuals and gameplay more than make up for that. In the latter half of the game you play as both Nico and George separately, at opposite sides of the world, which helps break up the environments.

  • Summary: The adventure game of my childhood! Since then, I play it and finish once a year and it's always great fun. Very good voices and excellent hand-made graphics. Pure enjoyment!

  • Summary: This game is probably one of the best puzzlers I have ever played. The story is deep but unfortunately had a weak ending which made the game suffer. IT has some good comedic sketches and introduces a wide selection of characters.

  • Summary: Tenemos ante nosotros un juego colorista que unifica intriga, tensión amorosa entre protagonistas y bastante humor en los comentarios de los personajes. Lo primero decir que se trata de una aventura gráfica con gráficos más de dibujos animados que de otra cosa pero que enganchan.
  • Pros: Es el comienzo de una saga
  • Cons: se acaba pronto
