Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. I knew what I was getting before I baught the game as I had played it a good few years before on the playstation when it was first released. When I saw that it had been released for the wii i jumped at the chance to buy it and hoped it was still as good as the playstation version.... and it was much better. The storyline is the same, but the grapics are so much better for the wii.
Summary: My first point and click game on Wii and I enjoyed it as much as I do on my computer. Interesting puzzles and humourous interaction amongst the characters. Puzzles not overly difficult or easy, medium range I think. Good purchase.
Summary: I am a fan of Point & Click games, though I had never played this one before. I do remember reading about it in a magazine a long time ago however. The game does feel rather old school, but that's why it exudes such charm and warmth. The artwork is truly wonderful and so are the characters and voice acting. Though I will say that the animated facial expressions, which appear in pop-ups when characters are talking, don't quite add as much as they could.
Summary: This is a delightful little game. I must admit i've never played any point and click games before, but what a refreshing change from the countless beat em ups, shoot em ups etc. I only wish there were more games of this genre out for all consoles. I found it a bit tricky at first, luckily all the way through the game u can access a hints page to the current puzzle. Ok i must admit ive been using this feature quite a lot to get through the game.
Summary: Having played the original Broken Sword games over a decade ago I was delighted to revisit them on the Wii. Although the story line follows the original there are some new scenes and puzzles and lets face it if you play a lot of games you are not necessarily going to remember every move and nuance form 10 years ago! Game play on the Wii is a joy compared to my earlier encounters with an original PS with mouse!
Excerpt: In the late 80s and early 90s one genre of game dominated my play time. An era before the likes of Doom made FPS all powerful. Way back from GTA3 and its sandbox gaming. The genre was the humble Point 'n' Click (PnC). On consoles the genre was all but forgotten left to PC gamers to pick up the odd title that was until the Wii came. With its pointer system it was ready made for the genre and with everyone else cashing in why couldn't Point 'n' Click makers?
Excerpt: Having been a huge fan of the original I was most excited when I heard Broken Swords was being re-made for the wii and DS platform. The type of gameplay and script are ideally suited to the interactive features of the nintendo consoles. The storyline is the same winning formula as before. You start the game playing an unwitting George, who goes to meet someone in a cafe in Paris when a bomb goes off.
Excerpt: As a fan of the broken sword series from plastation1 through to playstation 2 I was soooo excited to hear that they were releasing Shadow of the Templars for the wii and pre-ordered it straight away. When I first put it on I was a bit dismayed at the quality of the graphics but think this may have had something to do with the fact that I had only recently completed Secret files of Tunguska and the graphics are completely different with Broken sword being more animated...
