Excellent work of Art
19 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit, the first time I laid eyes on Broken Saints on Newgrounds.com, I was struck by the visual beauty and artistic tone of Broken Saints. However, my first impression was that the writers sacrificed an interesting and solid storyline for the artistic writing. Thus, I only viewed about the first 5 chapters.

About 6 months later, I viewed Broken Saints again, this time in its entirety, and found that this was not the case. Broken Saints contains one of the most profound, well-written, well-planned, and masterfully executed story lines that I've ever seen. It also contains well-written characters that are developed, identifiable, and three-dimensional.

Although the first 5 chapters are slow (because these are the chapters that establish and introduce the 4 main characters), the story quickly becomes interesting and by midway through the story (Chapter 12), I was hooked and absolutely needed to see the next chapter.

I must emphasize that this series is incredibly well thought out. Events are foreshadowed from the very beginning, characters change, and mysteries become untangled as the chapters move on.

Fans of The X-Files, Alias, and Lost would probably enjoy this series about faith, fate, and global conspiracies. I've certainly enjoyed the series enough to have bought the DVD (which includes wonderful voice acting). This is a must see and believe me, after Chapter 24 ends, you'll end up in awe and amazement.
