“Act 1 of Broken Age is a gorgeous, impeccably written adventure that simultaneously tugs at my nostalgic core, while ushering in a new era for the point-and-click genre.”
9.5 – IGN

9 – Polygon

“I haven’t felt this surge of nostalgia and excitement about a game in a long time, and I truly think Broken Age will be looked back fondly as one of the greats.”
9.5 – Destructoid

Features witty writing and charming animation which lead to a disappointing conclusion. Puzzles are simple at first, but spike in difficulty in Act 2. Worth noting that I backed the Double Fine Adventure kickstarter and consequently played the game in two separate releases one year apart - it may be improved if you play it all at once.

Had flaws, but is generally well-made. Worth getting on sale.

For a game that had a kikstarter backing of 3.5 million dollars you would expect for it to be amazing, but no somehow it is worse than Daikatana. Don't buy it is a complete waste of your money, I would rather play a mediocre game like Mighty No. 9 than this garbage.

The game has a very high production value, with great art and aesthetic. The voice acting is very good most of the time, but isn't always consistent. The puzzles were clever and sensible for the most part, however some of them felt a little contrived.

Act 1 was great. The ending of act 1 was absolutely amazing. From that point forwards the quality of the game and story drops steadily, right up until the conclusion. The conclusion itself was completely unsatisfying, as it provided next to no closure and left me unsatisfied.

Despite the disappointing ending, this game is still very good. The ending isn't necessarily bad, rather it just feels incomplete. I would still absolutely recommend this game as it tells a wonderful story in an interesting way that keep me engaged throughout my entire playthrough.

So beautiful and smooth arts. And how innovating the imagination is. (eg, weaving some fabric patterns to warp space!) I really liked it. Two-track story was interesting too.

Pros: beautiful art, high production values, good storytelling. At its best, it feels like a playable Pixar movie.

Cons: I have never rage-quit a point and click game before.
(That is to say, the puzzles are particularly non-intuitive, and sometimes interrelated in ways that aren't suggested anywhere at any time to the player.)

Well designed and fun, but a long grind of puzzles. I remember enjoying Monkey Island tremendously as a kid. Was it as pondorous as Broken Age? Nostalgia could be clouding my judgement, but I don't think so. Broken Age is a slog! Maybe a fun introduction to adventure games?

Broken Age is an example of what gameplay and story should look like when blended together. I found myself captivated with the narrative, and at the same time fully occupied with the puzzles that you need to solve to progress through the game. It's earned its place in my list of favorite decision-based, story-driven games to play on Steam.

Great game though the puzzles are a bit frustraring in places but usually are in great games like this and if bit was too easy that would take away from the game. My biggest complaint is the ending if there is more then one ending good if not again disapointment as there wasn't much to that ending. I would love to see a sequel come out

I generally enjoy point and click games and while I mostly enjoyed my time with this game, there's a few major issues that prevent me from recommending it.

Before I get into the issues, I'll highlight the good aspects of the game. It has very high production values (take a look at that voice cast) and an interesting story for the most part. The art style is well done and consistent, and I didn't run into any bugs or issues while playing. The puzzles for the most part are about right in terms of difficulty.

Unfortunately, this game does have a few major issues.

Most point and click games have a button that highlights interactive elements on the screen. Not so with this game. Generally it's not an issue, but it is possible to get stuck simply because you didn't see you could interact with something.

On the topic of getting stuck, there's a string of randomized memory puzzles at the end of the game that are essentially a vertical wall in terms of difficulty. They require you to notice very subtle hints from the other story track to proceed, but the game provides no indication of this and you can get stuck for a long period of time. To top it off, some of these puzzles are timed and have a long cooldown before you can check the hints again (if you even know what to look for). This greatly reduced my enjoyment at a critical point in the game.

The story, while interesting overall, leaves a lot hanging at the end. Technically there's a few illustrations in the credits, but they provide very little info on the result of the finale and not much closure for the story. Given the insane puzzles in the finale, I was disappointed to have it just end after all that work without a satisfying conclusion.

Add to that the relative shortness of the game (there's an achievement for finishing the game in under an hour) and the high price for this type of game, I unfortunately cannot recommend this game at the asking price. If it's on sale it's worth playing if you enjoy point and click games (with the use of a guide to get past those poorly designed puzzles at the end), but otherwise there are more enjoyable point and click adventures for your money.

Broken Age has made somewhat of a name for itself over the past couple years. Starting its life as a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign that has since inspired multiple other dream projects. Crafted by the same team that made the original Grim Fandango, Broken Age was developed as a throwback to adventure games of the past. The game is drawn up in a pastel-heavy style that is both beautiful and appropriate for the wacky antics Double Fine is known for — don’t let it deter you either. Broken Age is a fantastic journey that has a little something for everyone.

The story is split between dual protagonists, Vella and Shay, who share more in common than first meets the eye in a universe filled with twists, turns and well-placed illusions. Vella is a girl who has been selected by her village peers to be a living sacrifice to a monster known as the Mog Chothra — and wishing to shed her fate, sets off to escape. Shay is a young boy who lives in the confines of his very own spaceship, under the watchful eye of a motherly computer who works to protect him at all costs. Shay too grows tired of his “traditions” and sneaks off to seek the thrill of real adventure.

Everything comes to a head at the end of Act 1 when the story concludes several shocking developments before transitioning into the second Act where things become even more interesting for the dual protagonists as they swap places and explore their new worlds. The only downside to this development is the amount of recycled content — you’ll be revisiting a lot of the same NPCs and as a result it takes away from a lot of the discovery the first Act introduced for players. Those qualms aside though, I did enjoy going back and seeing how the circumstantial differences had changed things I already knew. The dialogue alone does not disappoint.

When you start the game you’ll have the option straight away of choosing between Vella or Shay’s tale — both of which can be swapped interchangeably any time you feel like a change of pace. Shay’s story is a bit more exploration and puzzle-heavy, where as Vella’s is more dialogue-heavy with many cutscenes in between traditional fetch-quest segments often found in typical adventure games. You’ll find yourself playing through both characters to get the whole picture here but that’s where Broken Age really shines. Its writing is clever and its characters are done through with a good amount of depth and occasional silliness. Double Fine’s work here is top notch and the various twists and reveals throughout the story kept me reaching for more.

From a gameplay perspective, Broken Age is your standard adventure game romp through the use of point-and-click gestures, inventory management and dialogue options players have come to expect over the years. Broken Age really encourages exploration — and element forced on you to advance the story, which often involves the use of clever puzzles which have equally easy to understand and use controls.

Broken Age is a wonderful experience that I can’t recommend enough. As someone who grew up on the LucasArts-style adventure games of old Double Fine has pulled through with just enough nostalgia and modern aesthetic, offering up a fresh and funny classic in an age where blockbuster games rule the roost.

Gameplay wise, this is pretty much your standard point and click adventure with a solid, easy to use interface.
Story wise, this game is bloody amazing.
It starts out as two seemingly different stories that are both very interesting.
I also really love the art style of this game.
I'd seriously recommend them to turn this into a mini series. I think it would do well.

I thought other reviews were exagerating the "Act 1 is amazing/Act 2 is terrible" thing. No. They weren't. The first half of Broken Age is beautiful, with a great duel storyline of young teens rebelling and clever intuitive puzzles. Using items on inappropriate things produces loads of clever dialog.

Then Act 2 comes along. Just go ahead and pull up a guide because the puzzles are annoying and unintuitive now. Several depend on getting timing perfect or referring to things from the other character's side of the story. Item interactions go down significantly as well. The story doesn't really hold up either.

I got Broken Age cheap, from a Humble Bundle, and I'm glad I played Act 1. But Act 2 makes me glad I didn't pay more. Consider this a "barely positive" review, for Act 1 and excellent voice acting and art.

The art is gorgeous, the voice talent is sublime and together they give the game true character. The soundtrack has been so carefully considered and composed. This game is much greater than the sum of its parts and it is really knocking my socks off.

This is a game in two parts, and unfortunately, I have to review it is such.

I can sum up part one in one word: Brilliant!

Here we have two characters in two seemingly unrelated situations. One has been chosen as a human sacrifice to a monster that has been terrorising the local villages for generations, the other is alone on a deep-space exploration vessel. You, as the player, have to guide these two through their own stories of "escape".

I found the story interesting, and then when the two characters briefly meet, then abruptly change places...

On to part two, and in a word: Disapointing.

After months of waiting, we get this lacklustre, almost generic point-and-click game that relies more on player knowlege than imersion in the story. I got stuck on several puzzles, only to discover that the solution requires finding something AS THE OTHER CHARACTER, totally destroying any immersion that I may have still had, and dumping me into the mode of "player behind the keyboard" instead.

And then, when the final solution required co-ordinating the actions of both characters at the same time, without either character even knowing what the other is doing, well, I guess that's the "Broken" part of Broken Age.

While I would like to recomend this game based on the first part, I just can't. Sorry.

After an overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter campaign, Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine have decided to return to their roots with their first point-and-click adventure game in over 15 years. Similar to their past projects like Grim Fandango and The Secret of Monkey Island, Broken Age features unforgettable characters, puzzles, unique themes, and plenty of humor.

The game centers around two characters each from a drastically different walk of life. One half of the narrative follows Vella, a girl who is to be offered as a sacrifice to an enormous monster known as Mog Chothra. While the other half of the story focuses on a boy named Shay who finds himself trapped on a spaceship under the watchful eye of an overly protective computer that holds him prisoner under the pretense of safety. Both of the characters yearn for change and freedom in their own way. While Vella is surrounded by overly zealous villagers that cling to tradition, Shay is completely isolated and patronized by an overbearing computer as he’s forced to endure the same routine day after day.

The puzzles are quite satisfying, they’re not overly complex but they still require some thinking which is a refreshing change from most recent games in the genre. They consist of scouring the environment for various items which can be combined with one another or given to certain characters. The amount of overall polish added to the dialogue is impressive, as you’ll most likely try to use the items in your inventory in clever ways to prompt humorous reactions and responses.

The art style is unique and really sets the game apart. While not being overly impressive on a technical level, Broken Age is brimming with personality and has an undeniable charm. The game feels like a children’s book come to life but the underlying themes and subtle humor make it appealing to players of all ages. The environments are varied and interesting to look at while the characters are all quite memorable.

Sporting an all-star cast, the voice acting is top notch which brings each of the characters to life with standout performances from Elijah Wood as Shay and Jennifer Hale best known for her work on Mass Effect (Femshep) as the megalomaniacal computer. The soundtrack is also well done, fitting the mood and atmosphere of the game perfectly.

Unfortunately, the game is quite linear and doesn’t really offer much in terms of re-playability. The different dialogue options add a bit of humor but have little to no impact on the story. For example: choosing to lie to certain characters won’t change the way they perceive you and will have the same effect as telling the truth.

Act one is also fairly short, lasting around 4 hours and it ends with a bit of a cliffhanger which will leave you anxiously waiting for Act two. Broken Age probably would have benefited from being released all at once but Act two is promised at no additional cost at a later date.

Overall, Broken Age is a charming game with a strong narrative, great humor and memorable characters. It’s proof that there is still room for creativity and innovation amidst the slew of modern action titles. Broken Age not only revives the point and click genre, it helps redefine it.

TLDR? This review is also available in video format:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kNp4HjhyQY


Pros:

+ Strong Narrative
+ Solid Voice Acting
+ Great Sense of Humor
+ Reasonable Puzzles
+ Fantastic Art Direction
+ Charming and Unique


Cons:

- Cliffhanger Ending
- Short Length (3 - 4 hours long)
- Linear
- Dialogue Options have little influence on the story.
