The Smoking Mirror continues the exciting adventures of George and Nico this time pitting them against the Aztec Death-God Tezcatlipoca. Broken Sword has almost a movie-quality to it, being notably more linear than its predecessor, but the story is still quite interesting none the less.
The game unfortunately is not very challenging and the puzzles are incredibly simple for an adventure game. The game over-all seems to suffer from a lack of polish (which is an unfortunate trait seen throughout the series). Though the opening still manages to capture the dark essence of the first game, the latter half is a miss mash of elements that don't deliver quite evenly.
Broken Sword 2 also has a very unbalanced graphic output, but over-all a better soundtrack than its predecessor as well as classically lovable characters. Not the best, but neither the worst game in the series.
