George Stobbart returns in Broken Sword 2, after beating all the bad guys in Broken Sword 1. George`s girlfriend Nico receives an old stone by mail, and the couple travel to professor Ovier`s house. However, George is knocked unconscious and Nico is hit by an arrow containing poison. When George wakes up, he is trapped in the burning house, a poisonous spider is heading his way, and Nico is gone.(!) After escaping the house, George sets out to find his girlfriend, but as in BS1, he accidently enters a dangerous world of mystery and death. BS1 had a proud and excellent story about the Knight Templars, now it is about drug traffic and 3 secret stones. The story in BS2 is not as got or gripping as in the first game, but is nevertheless interesting. The graphics are sharper and clearer than in BS1, so it is now easier to spot where you are going to execute the famous puzzles of the series. The locations are beautifully drawn and very detailed, and the music follows in the steps of the game`s older brother. Check out BS1 first, then if you like that, come back to BS2 for more. Good game! 9/10
