When I heard that Revolution were developing a new Broken Sword on the smartphone platforms I was excited to see what they would do. As a player in the BS universe for a number of years I was curious and so downloaded the game to my iPhone 5...due to the memory size though I have waited to play this properly on the iPhone 6.
Firstly the game takes a good 2 hours to download because of it's near 2GB size. While the graphics are excellent I was disappointed to find out that the game is in two halves and that a number of people have had issues with episode 2.
I have now finished episode 1 in a total of 2.5 hours game play...which is frustrating when the game took nearly that to download!!
I can see what Revolution are trying to do here but I think the money would have been better spent on a full game development for the Playstation or Xbox as the Sleeping Dragon is one of my all time faves!
Of course being someone who likes to finish what they have started I will be downloading episode 2.....
If your wondering whether or not to buy this game, don't wonder anymore just get it, in fact get Broken Sword 1 - The Shadow Of The Templar, and Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror as well. They are brilliant absorbing fun last a lifetime sort of games that you'll go back to again and again. The in depth stories and characters and locations make it a beautiful creation for anyone who loves adventure games. Broken Sword 3 - The Sleeping Dragon and Broken Sword 4 - The Angel Of Death can be purchased on a computer these games went 3D and in my opinion lose something that the originals had but having said that are still definitely worth playing to complete the series. I just hope a Broken Sword 6 will be in the pipeline somewhere along the line... :D oh if you haven't already bought it why are you still reading this get it now, now I tell you now!!! You will not be disappointed. :D
Nice one, Revolution!
I have always loved the Broken Sword games and point and click adventures and, after waiting for some reported download issues to be resolved, I decided to give this a try.
The price is great for a game of this polish and the interface is great too. A good story and interesting plot combine to make this game great. The only small drawbacks would be that some characters are recycled from earlier games and it feels a little like in jokes and a couple of the puzzles feel very abstract. Oh, and the save points sometimes seem to have you redoing small parts. Otherwise excellent value and well done, Revolution!
