Not nearly as good as the first one.
I really enjoyed the first Broken Sword, but this fell far from the mark for me. There is far less Nico and far too much George; it's entirely linear; and many of the puzzles are so random that I felt like I was just clicking on each thing in turn until the next bizarre thing happened. There are also some puzzles where it's clear what you're trying to achieve overall but you have to pull it off in exactly the correct order and way before the game will allow you to move on. There are so many good reviews on here that maybe it's just me, but it basically wasn't that fun, and the storyline went from incredibly slow (while you trying get through the next door or whatever) to suddenly saying something like "so I got on a plane and went halfway round the world". Just not for me...
Brilliant and Nostalgic!
I remember spending about £3.50 or something to rent this game from blockbuster and then spending about £30 (of my parents money) on an 0906 number which told me what to do when I got stuck!
So happy to see this on the AppStore 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Mostly sound but dated
An old classic that's good to see again, but time hasn't been kind to. The first had a directors cut, making it longer & more in depth. There is too much chat here and the touch screen doesn't work well on a smartphone, often fading as I'm trying to select a direction/action. For nostalgia freaks only.
