Summary: The first Broken Sword (the predecessor of The Sleeping Dragon) was considered one the best and most beautiful "point and click" adventure game (like the funny "Monkey Island" games) of all time, and The Sleeping Dragon, even if its not as hand drawned graphics like as the first game of the series,...
Summary: After me buying this game for the 360, never read properly, still managed to play it on friends Xbox. Why aren't there any more games like this? I'm don't like shoot me up games or driving games, a proper good mystery game is missing from the market.
Summary: I really like adventure games,but somehow missed this one,however I bought it last week and just finished it,I really wish more games were available for consoles like this,instead of the usual boring brain dead shooters you usually get,I am just glad I kept my old xbox to play it on and can highly...
Summary: If you're not into fast-paced action games but want a game which has a very good story, lets you take your time to explore areas, find items and discover how to use them in order to solve puzzles - this just might be for you.
Excerpt: If you're a fan of the Broken Sword series (having played the first two PC games), then you're sure to be itching to have a crack at this game. The Broken Sword series is synonymous with challenging puzzles, gripping storyline and witty humour.
Pros: Good graphics & sound
Cons: Slow loading, slow story development, slow game !
Excerpt: I got the game about a month ago and completed in about 6 weeks, and was very satisfied with the whole game. Broken Sword is a role playing game with a interesting storyline which is hard to find with all the mindless point and shoots out at the moment, but Broken Sword pulls it off again.
Pros: Good graphics and storyline
Cons: Can find yourself going around in circles, long loading time
Excerpt: This game overall is great especially if you love point and clicks if you do then step right up this is the only and best point and click game I have ever played on the Xbox (other then the game myst) but let’s not go there.
A "blockbusting movie" experience with you in control.

Summary: There are a few games out there on the market that truly captivates the gamer, pulling them into a virtual reality, creating a "blockbusting movie" experience with you in control. Broken Sword: Sleeping Dragon is one of them.
Summary: The Broken Sword series has long been famed for its strong narrative and sublimely simple game play and tradition has certainly not been forgotten here. To describe the Sleeping Dragon as just eccentric or perhaps abnormal would be unfair, unjustly stripping this game of its values that come...
Excerpt: Charles Cecil is one of the nicest men in the industry. At least that’s what many magazines seem to suggest. He, along with his people at UK based Revolution Software, has been a pioneer of adventure games for many years. Last year he announced the ‘adventure game was dead’.
Pros: Great to look at | Nice story | Superb dialogue
