Still looks nice.
Great puzzles.
Wonderful voice acting.
Brilliant cast of characters.
Engaging story.
Some of the ports weren’t fantastic.
Cut scenes aren’t the greatest.


The first Broken Sword game was what got me into point and click adventures. Terrific characters, great story and challenging puzzles all sucked me right into the genre. It may be over twenty years old now, but it’s still a terrific example of a great game in the genre and everyone should really play it, on any platform that they can.
