Summary: Reasonable story. Poor control system. Iffy graphics (some ok at best, some rather poor). Got this when it came out but I never finished it. I recently started it again but found the controls so horrible, and the puzzles annoying, that I ended up watching a series of walkthroughs on YouTube (from half-way though Prague) BS1 & 2 were almost perfect (even the directors cut) but this is Reasonable story. Poor control system.
Summary: It's an memorable game, with beautiful graphic's, well-written dialouges and a grabbing story. The story-telling is pretty good, it's never boring! Just cool. I also love the kind of humor George and Nicole has!
Summary: The story, voice acting, dialogue, and lovable characters make you forgive the "eeh" controls. While the box puzzles are repetitive, the others are very clever. One of the best adventures ever.
Summary: The controls on the game are so broken as to make it impossible to play expect for the most dedicated of fans. The Sleeping Dragon is the only installment that is not point-and-click. In fact, it's impossible to use the mouse for anything. Instead all major actions in the game are done by the keyboard. The game manual brags about this "hybrid" system but it's horrible.
Summary: Low rating because of the EXTREMELY POOR controls. The difficulty of the game is figuring out the default controls. There are few options to customize the controls. You will spend the first hour trying to figure out the controls to make your charter do the obvious. I quite playing and uninstalled this game because of the extreme frustration factor in the key controls. The game play is VERY Low rating because of the EXTREMELY POOR controls.
Excerpt: Broken Sword 3: The Sleeping Dragon Platform: Playstion Two Genre: Action/Adventure Publisher: THQ Price: Varied The Sleeping Dragon: AN ANCIENT CONSPIRACY...A BROKEN CODE...AN UNSOLVED MURDER...THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE! I believe this is the third Broken Sword game in the series that has lived up to it's expectations of adventure, puzzles, unravelling the story and finding the clues to the secrets of The Sleeping Dragon.
Excerpt: I purchased The Sleeping Dragon when it was first released, so paid £34.99 for it in HMV, UK. I was younger then so barely computer savvy and didn't consider a walkthrough to help with the more complex levels and parts of the game. Though I play the game using my brain, and thinking outside the box, (which you have to do a lot playing Broken Sword!), sometimes my frustrations bring me back to a quick glance over the walkthrough to help me on my merry way.
Pros: Good storyline, use of shadow, characters .
Cons: Camera angles . Should offer the option to 'pan' .
Excerpt: Broken sword 3 was the first version of the series to incorporate a non point and click style to the game, it used a normal movement using the analogue buttons, this took away from the game I think, plus numerous bad camera angles didn't help, the point and click style was always best and glad they bought it back for the 4th instalment.
Summary: I HAVE NEVER PLAYED THIS GAME ON PC, i am not sure why but i was a monkey island fan and played this game a lot. my son played it however and it was him who drew my attention to the fact that it was available on PS2, I DIDNT RUSH OUT TO GET IT HOWEVER! it was some time later that the game crossed my path so i thought i would give it a go, it is brilliant, my son was right, i was absolutely addicted and could not put it down, even threw a sicky at work so i could play it...
