An enticing story...
30 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Broken Sword is one of the true classics of the adventure game genre. It combines a dark story with a light-hearted cartoon look to provide an extremely satisfying combination. Broken Sword can be summed up as cross between Monkey Island and Gabriel Knight, using historical events as a back-setting for a mystery driven adventure but colouring it with lighthearted humour.

The first adventure in the series is undoubtedly the best. The mysterious plot keeps you in its grip and the many goofy characters you encounter make the game an unforgettable experience. The puzzles are very simple in a way that they can be figured out without incredible leaps of logic.

Although there is some inconsistency in the quality of certain cut-scenes and thought the soundtrack is not as high quality as those of the later instalments, The Shadow of the Templars has a timeless quality that makes it enjoyable every time you play it.
