Being a fan of broken sword 2 on the playstation 1, I found this game for £9.99 from Gamestation. After being a bit sceptical due to the low price, I am now confident in saying that this is one of the best bargain buys game there is. It is point and click (or tap for DS) game where you investigate strange murders occurring over Europe. The game involve solving different puzzles to piece together the plot, however there is a hint system for those who struggle to work some puzzles, starting off with a small hint, with successive hints demonstrating exactly what to do to advance. The story delivers in that in keeps you interested in reading all ... Read the complete review

Many companies these days have foud a new and easy way of making money, porting. It's easy, take an old game and port it to a current console and you can sell it to old fans and new players alike. But is it shameless? Are we buying into this knowing full well we're buying the same game that we possibly already own twice? In this case, I'd say no. This DS port isn't shameless, it's great! While much of the game remins the same it has been updated enough to keep it fresh and interesting while keeping enough intact to do ustice and show respect to the original PC game. The Director's Cut adds new story, new puzzles and a new character to control. In ... Read the complete review

I've owned, played, completed and enjoyed all of Revolution Software's games, from their Amiga days, through to their PC releases. When they announced that their new game - Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars - Director's Cut was only available on the Nintendo Wii and DS, there was nothing for it... I had to go out and buy a DS (well, that was the excuse I gave Mrs SWSt anyway!) The main plot of the game involves you playing as two key characters - reporter Nicole Collard and American George Stobbart as they accidentally get caught up in a major conspiracy involving murder, mystery and the Knights Templar. In some regards, Broken Sword is not a ... Read the complete review

I have always been a fan of point and click games, so when I heard that one of my favorites was going to be made for the DS, I knew I had to have it. Broken Sword is a great murder mystery game that has been made for many platforms in the past with the most popular being on the PC. The general format of the game is to hunt through the scenes with your mouse and click on objects and people to solve the mystery of the story. So how was it going to work on the Nintendo DS? The controls of the game are very easy to master, using the stylus to point and also click. By scrolling your stylus around the screen you will be able to see icons appear to ...

I'm not really a huge gamer person, but I quite enjoy puzzle and adventure games on the DS (such as Hotel Dusk and Professor Layton etc). My partner bought this for myself and his mum to play (she likes that sort of game too). I was aware that Broken Sword is essentially a remake of an original, and from what my partner tells me, hasn't changed a great deal. The mother in law really enjoyed the game, and the way you go to and from places gathering clues, solving puzzles etc. Normally I would enjoy this sort of thing (maybe I expect too much from technology and games these days?) but I found the graphics and the game play to be frustratingly ...
