The latest game, a gem for the veterans!PlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
The developers of Broken Sword 5 took seriously the players' demands about a new point and click Broken Sword game, and they did an awesome job. This is the latest game from the franchise, but I hope it's not the last one. If they keep it up like this, I'll keep buying these games. Unlike the previous 3D games in the franchise, Broken Sword 5 is 2D (merged with cartoon-like 3D models) and it's very eye-catchy. The music evokes nostalgia for us veteran Broken Sword players, and there are tons of puzzles, sarcasm (oh, Mr. Stobbart...) and memorable moments and characters (meet Trevor!) If you haven't play any game from the franchise, I highly recommend you to buy the pack, it's a must have for all point and click lovers, and my favorite one. Keep up the awesome work!
A weak entry for the franchiseCavalieroscuro | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Broken Sword 5 represents the great return from Revolution Software on the classic point and click saga. George and Nico are back, but the adventure is not the best entry for the series. Sadly the plot is very weak, with an epilogue that reach the player too soon, just like if the developers want put an end to the game. On the first part of the game there's a lot of backtracking with some easy puzzles, while during the second episode you won't see the same screen twice, but on the other end is very very short, around a hour. Characters seem having no background at all, even the whole story between Nico and George feel abandoned. It's not a bad game, only decent, but for sure is not the best Broken World you can find.
