Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon Review
9 February 2008
Conclusion: Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon is about as close as you’re going to come to an interactive movie. The game boasts a ton of blockbuster movie-like production values and a story that is one of Chuck Cecil’s best. The primary downside to The Sleeping Dragon is its linear gameplay and simplified control scheme that will turn off some gamers.
Excerpt: The adventure genre has recently been the victim of a cataclysmic earthquake. Having given up all hope for survivors, it’s equally heartening and surprising that Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon has managed to crawl out of the rubble. With gaming’s landscape so irrevocably altered in the meantime, what are the chances of survival for Revolution’s latest romp’ One of the key qualities of successful species in the animal kingdom is adaptability.
Excerpt: Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon is the third game in the Broken Sword series but only Broken Sword fans will probably realize as the game doesn't have the strongest of followings but the games are a cult classic for anyone looking for a great point-and-click adventure game. The previous two were released on other systems and PC and they were 2D hand drawn point-and-click games and they always followed the adventures of a man named George and his friend Nico.
Pros: Great cast, Good voice and sound, Very funny plot
Excerpt: Floating through the clear skies with an Australian pilot could usually be considered a safe trip. However, when the passenger is George Stobbart, you know that trouble will break out. Surely enough, a storm immediately and unexpectedly appears. Both of your planeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s engines die after being struck by lightning; you were going down, crash to the ground, and nearly fall off of the ledge of a mountain, but you luckily end up near where you need to be.
Summary: "Graphically Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon is pretty good, it doesn't have all of the fancy effects that other Xbox games have had, but this is more to do with the fact that is has been released across all consoles as well. The animation is excellent, and the scenery is pretty good too.
Pros: Great Story, Excellent Dialogue, Good puzzles, Great Interface
Cons: Not as good graphically as other Xbox Titles, Extremely slow loading titles
Excerpt: Nostalgi. Min første PC var en allerede dengang i 1992 lidt forældet 286´er med 20 mb harddisk og 1kb RAM… eller noget i den stil. Der var dog én type spil, den kunne køre, og det var alle Lucas Arts’ point’n'click eventyrspil. Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis osv. Jeg var vild med den genre, der dog til dels er forsvundet siden. Men Broken Sword fører faktisk de stolte traditioner videre. Men er det stadig fedt?
Excerpt: Der er sikkert mange, der kan huske de første to farverrige og meget stemningsfulde Broken Sword adventurespil. De har godt nok nogle år på bagen, men ikke desto mindre må man sige, at Broken Sword spillene var nogle af de bedste i deres genre. Heldigvis er serien ikke død og det nye spil skulle efter sigende “revolutionere hele adventuregenren”.
