I hated this game the first time I played it. I was used to the point and click classical layout, and then all of sudden... I found a 3D game, I wasn't expecting that. But then you realize that you're still in the Broken Sword universe, and the story, characters, everything you loved from the previous ones are there. There's another 3D one, which I like more than this one, but if you like Broken Sword you have to play this. It's worth it, absolutely.
Definitely worth a go.scottnat | Feb. 1, 2015 | See all scottnat's reviews »
A very pretty game. On that level i still find the lighting and design holds up today. It's also a decent story which moves along quite briskly and is always quite involving (top notch voice acting etc to). The only qualm i do have with the game is in making it 3d and i guess seeking '3d puzzles' they've saturated it somewhat with puzzles involving moving boxes around strategically. It sounds kind of an odd complaint, but if you play the game for any length of time you'll see what i mean. I'd still recommend it solidly, though, in spite of this quirk. By the standards of adventure games it's a very good one.
