This is a masterclass of its genre. If you are at all into point and click adventures, you'd be crazy to miss out on experiencing this game. It excels in 3 major areas that games like this so often lack:
Graphics - the engine is solid, no clipping or clicking issues, and the style is both cute and consistent. Visually stunning to behold as you play.
Story - the story is gripping and longer than you'd expect for a game of this quality. It will keep you guessing and still surprise you with the twists in store.
Dialogue - for a game which is based on characters speaking to drive the story forwards, you'll still be amazed at the sheer volume of dialogue, and at how continually engaging it is. Each of the characters is unique and entertaining, and they speak with a delightful quirkiness that keeps you interested in talking to everyone - even if they can't help you, you know it will be a fun conversation. Even better than this: there is an incredible voice cast including some leading actors! The vocal delivery of the dialogue is of unparalleled quality for a video game, truly fantastic. It's also worth mentioning the musical score is wonderful, charming and dramatic by turns, even while it remains in the background.
It's a solid amount of game for you money and of a quality seldom encountered. Do yourself a favour and add it to your list.
Thoroughly enjoyed by the family
We had quite a few wet days on holiday. My wife, teenage daughter and I spent of the mornings playing Broken Age and got completely hooked- 17 hours of game play in to the night! Still way more family sharing moments than staring at a movie or getting lost in social media.
The puzzles are just challenging enough to keep you going but not so hard you get completely frustrated, especially with a few of you playing together. The graphics were excellent and the story telling was strong, a few questionable elements. On the whole a highly quality and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
We're now searching for something similar with little success. We'd buy another of these types of games tomorrow if Double Fine produced one.
