For some reason, i liked the first game better. Maybe because the characters were still new, or because i like the Europian setting better then the south american. I don't really know, but regardless, Broken Sword two is just as great a game as the first one was, in fact, there are some who even liked it better then then the first, and i can understand that. Like the first, you have some interesting locations, funny dialogue, and great characters, that return here...well, almost all of them. If you liked the first, and Adventure games in general, you should get this game too. If i recall right, this is the first entry in the series, that features actual magic(the first had some kinda, but you foil it before something actually happens) and thankfully this entry end the last minute relationship between Nico and George, which was my only problem with the story in the first game. Here, you only have to concentrate on the main story, which is as always great!
This was my first game, I can repeat any quote because I only had this game at the beginning and I played it again and again and again. I didn't play the first one, I played The Smoking Mirror first, and despite the HUGE nostalgia, I like the first one more than this one. As I said in the Broken Sword 1 review, this is the closest thing to a well balance mixture between videogame and book I've ever experienced.
Like in the first remastered Broken Sword, this one is also hurt because of that. Hints destroy any challenge in this game. Also, I think that remastered portraits looks terrible. If you can ignore these things and for some reason you aren't able to play original one, get it. It's still great Broken Sword game. In my opinion, The Smoking Mirror it the best in Broken Sword series. Story is great, amazing music by great composer and great looking graphics. Well, at least I think that 2d fits greatly adventure games. For fans of Broken Sword and adventure games it's a must have.
It's an older game so you'll have to put up with lesser graphics by today's standards - although the design is stellar and stacks up - but if you're into point and click adventures it's a quality one. I'd put it very slightly behind the first in the series, but only just. It's much better than most sequels - the story is just a touch more engaging in the first.
George is back! While visiting his friend Nico Collard, the unfortunate american tourist got himself in the wrong place at the wrong time once again! Nico has been kidnapped and George must save her! Broken Sword 2 : The Smoking Mirror is an adventure game taking place in many locations from Paris to the remote jungle of South America. the puzzles are clever and the dialogs are as funny as in the previous game. Broken Sword 2 is my favourite entry in the series and a classic.
