I only played this game for the first time this year, after buying it as part of a '3 for £12' deal on the Sold-Out range of games. I don't know how I missed it until then! I love all point and click, and adventure style games in general, and this was ideal for me since I was using a particularly old and slow PC at the time. The game is available for PC or Playstation; but although I played this on PC, just about everything I’m going to say applies to both games. You play the part of George Stobbart, a Californian tourist on holiday in gay Paris, and the game begins with an explosion in a café. When George witnesses the killer (disguised as a ...

Broken Sword is now so cheap they're practically giving it away! this is my review for any Playstation owners who haven't yet experienced the delights of this classic game.. You are George Stobbart, intrepid American on vacation in Paris who has to piece together events leading up to the bombing of a Parisian cafe of which you were just in the vicinty at the time whilst unravelling the more sinister mystery of Broken Sword and saving the world. This is a point and click game whereby to progress you have to wander round picking up handy objects, solving puzzles by the aid of chatting to the local folk.. a lot and combine one unlikely object ...

With Revolutions success with Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword was an eagerly awaited point and click adventure game. Coming out at the same time as another revolutionary series began, Quake, Broken Sword managed to get rave reviews and very healthy sales. Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars is a magnificent game. I have played it through a few times since buying it and it still has entertainment value. You play the role of American tourist George Stobbart who, while on his 'vacation' to Paris, gets a big surprise, in the name of clown, an accordion and a big bomb. Nice. Following that wake up call George finds himself tangled up in a ... Read the complete review

Broken Sword is a cocktail of gaming genius, classic puzzle/riddle solving and artwork that packs one hell of a punch. Vibrant watercolour visuals make Broken Sword immediately striking, and turn the whole adventure into a delightful exhibition of eye candy. You have to see the game itself to really appreciate the effect this has, but I can assure you that the refined texture is a welcome relief from the monotony of what we have come to expect from gaming. The soundtrack is pure genius and will loop around in your head for days, instantly evoking just that particular scene. The storyline collaborates perfectly with the visuals and soundtrack. As ...

The story begins in Paris with George Stobbart, an American tourist sitting outside a French cafe. Suddenly a clown approaches with an accordion and runs into the cafe. He runs up to a man in a grey coat, snatches his briefcase and runs like hell! Suddenly a bomb in the accordion goes off. The cafe is in pieces and George is lucky too survive. The man is killed. Who was the killer clown? Who was the man with the briefcase? These are just some of the questions you'll have to answer on your long (believe me, it's long!) journey. This 2 CD puzzle game is by far my favourite PC game for a number of reasons. 1. It never takes itself too ... Read the complete review
