  • 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 basic, and not fun at all.

  • Excerpt: "...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. It's usually something I've tried too but have been standing on a funny angle or something similarly daft. I was an avid player of The Smoking Mirror back in the late 90's and this game will appeal to anybody who loved playing and loves point and click games alike. I will speak about my experience and opinion ...
  • Pros: Good storyline, use of shadow, characters .
  • Cons: Camera angles .  Should offer the option to 'pan' .

  • 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...

Brilliant!

  • Summary: I expected this to be yet another point and click game which is harder to use on a regular console rather than a PC, but I'm very glad that it isn't that way at all. The game just seems to go on and on and on and that's fantastic if the game isn't boring you and you want it to finish. I'm happy to say that this game didn't bore me at all. I was sad when I finally completed it.

In hindsight pretty good.

  • Summary: I have all the BS games,the first two and the last on PC and this on PS2 and PC,many people were sceptical when it went to 3D as opposed to the 2D cartoon look of the first two,so was I but my fears were soon gone,this remains faithful to the first two games in nearly every way,sure the controls are a little different and the 'stealth' and action bits are somewhat distracting but contrary to some people I actually liked the 'boxes',they were a little overdone and...
