Bellissima avventura punta-e-clicca.
Enigmi piuttosto semplici ma coerenti con la storia, c'è comunque l'aiuto per chi avesse problemi.
Unico problema incontrato è quello che capita quando il gioco è tradotto in italiano ma un enigma prevede di comporre una parola, in certi casi la parola da comporre è in inglese.
Anche la durata è superiore alla media delle avventure di questo tipo inoltre, a dispetto del nome, non ci sono i "schifosissimi" serpenti.

Indovinelli sempre banali e immediati, non al livello dei primi capitoli. Migliora verso il finale.

Finalmente si ritorna alle origini, un Broken Sword in 2D come i primi due capitoli con doppiaggio in Italiano. Anche se può apparire più semplice rispetto ai primi due indimenticabili episodi, i fan non ne rimaranno delusi, anzi saranno entusiasti da questa 5 (6 se contiano lo spin-off amatoriale) avventura. Fondali disegnati a mano curati e di ottima fattura, lo spirito della serie rimane invariato. Dopo le fasi buie e sperimentali del 3 e 4, questo BS è una vera e propria manna dal cielo.

Broken sword is back! Finally they dropped that ugly looking 3D graphics and annoying controls and got back to the roots.
The game looks amazing, beautifully drawn environments just makes you take screenshots.
From the very beginning you can feel that broken swordish atmosphere and hear the great music, nostalgia conquers you and finally you start your adventure with George and Nico.
The story is good as always and it's very broken swordish too. Religious symbols, some legend, people who want destroy the world, you know.
Game has been split into two parts. First part feels easier (at least for me), second part has some more action and good puzzles which could take some time to solve. Overall game is not very hard. Old school hardcore gamers probably wouldn't like it. But in my opinion the adventure game cannot be very hard when it has a logical solutions to the puzzles. I don't like when you need to do absolutely stupid and illogical things to solve something, so i'll better have an easier game but with logical puzzles.
Everyone who played the old Broken sword games should remember the damn goat. I remember it. It was a pain. Guess what? The goat is back! Of course people who didn't play the previous games probably will not be happy seeing all those characters from Georgie and Nico's past and will not understanding some dialogues and jokes, but don't worry, George has a new friend - Trevor. He's cute, he likes cookies and is very brave, he risk his live for George and he's a real hero.
Sorry i'm very biased towards this game series, it's my favorite. It's hard for me to say something negative about it, but i'll try. In the second part there're couple lines of subtitles missing. Ok that's enough bashing this game.
If you like adventure games i'd say this is a must have and if you liked it you should play previous games or at least 1 and 2. Yes they're old but still looking good, such games doesn't get old.
So get this game, go on adventure, save the world and eat a doner kebab.

The Broken Sword series is pretty much a classic. You can't say you love point & clicks and not have played them.

Ignoring the 4th game released in '06 - The Angel of Death (which was pretty much a mixed bag) and the 3rd game in '03 - The Sleeping Dragon (which was rejected by purists for its 3d graphics and keyboard controls); it was a truly long wait since the 1st game - The Shadow of the Templars and 2nd game - The Smoking Mirror, released respectively in 96 and 97.

This 5th game, returned back to its 2d roots and with current technology, boasts a really neat graphic system. We have the usual solid adventure to solve and lots of places to explore. George's nemesis - the goat made an appearance yet again and it is also part of an easter egg. Do check that out for lots of laughs. As this game was backed on kickstarter, there were some goodies for the kickstarters to find in game. Don't forget to listen to the Radio Yorkshire for the answers to some of the questions we have been dying to know - as asked by the backers.

I enjoyed Broken Sword 5. The game made me laugh. Thumbs up.

… Well, if you want a little more detail than that, fine, I guess I could try to expand upon why it won me over.

I first learned that the point & click game series “Broken Sword” existed because of my cell phone actually. I had a smart phone. I had no games on it that would hold my attention for more than 15 minutes or so. And, at the time, I had a three-hour flight. Dreading boredom, I browsed games until I found Broken Sword 1. Then a month later I bought Broken Sword 2. By that time I become a casual fan of the series so of course I bought Broken Sword 5.

It took me a bit to understand WHY this point and click game stood out to me. It wasn’t exactly ground breaking. Each game had a mystery plot that had the characters adventuring to new locations and trying to solve a murder that revolves around historical artifacts and each game had puzzles that made you think outside the box. The art was great and the voice acting was wonderful. The plot was humorous and filled with fun loving characters.

It was good on all these levels, but there was an additional something that just makes it more noticeable to me. I still have trouble putting my finger on it, but I can only described the feel as a serene level of calm pleasantness. Playing Broken Sword 5 (as well as the other broken sword games) was like picking up a favorite book again or going fishing with some buddies.

There was no feeling of urgency to complete the game, no over exotic melodrama, no underlying political messages, jarring scenes of violence, or crazy car chases. I didn’t play this game because everyone else was talking about it or because it was on the latest and greatest tech.

It was a casual player’s dream. To play a game just so it can bring out a chuckle and a stress dissipating smile, during those times when a person only seems to have a half an hour a day or so to themselves.

As a Broken Sword fan who loved the first two games, but found the third and fourth game forgettable, I find this installment to be nothing short of fantastic.

What's to love?
- Original voice actors,
- Beautifully designed 2D backgrounds,
- Combination mechanics that make sense, you can actually figure these puzzles out!
- Original design team who clearly have a love for this series.

If Broken Sword 1 and 2 were personal favourites of yours, you have no reason not to give this a try. The game is quite long! Just over 14 hours or so to complete, and there's depth to it all. It's heartwarmingly back to its roots, so much so to have a wondrous Paris landscape with beautifully soothing music.
If I'm not talking about the bad points, it's because I don't think there are any. Fans of the series know what a Broken Sword game is like, and apart from a mildly underwhelming ending, it's solid enough to be fun, engaging and very, very clever. Purchase, sit back, enjoy and smile.

I would recommend this game to fans of the first 2 Broken Sword games. Revolution has returned to using mostly 2D graphics, and the results are beautiful. If you like traditional point-and-click games, like the ones from the 90s Lucasarts and Sierra eras, you'll feel right at home with this game. The story isn't the most engaging, but most of the puzzles are pretty logical.

If you want a more modern point-and-click puzzle adventure game, TellTale has done a better job with Tales of Monkey Island and Sam n Max.

Had to wait a little while before the whole game was ready, but in the end I wasn't disappointed at all. The story was kind of so-so but the puzzles were good (made sense and not too difficult) and the graphics are lovely. It's a very pleasant game to play.
My only complaint was, too much George and not enough Nico. But then again her accent does begin to grate so perhaps it's for the best.

I hope we continue to see these sort of adventure games in the future.

1st episode is brilliant, 2nd is a little bit too hard and some of the puzzles dont really make much sense. Also the ending seems a bit rushed.
If you do get this game make sure you tune into the radio in the wrecked car using the ID card, it's really funny.

All in all a good adventure game, which is true to the previous installments in the series. But I don't feel, that you need to play the previous games in order to enjoy this though. Of course some detail stuff opens to you only, if you have played those.

I personally liked the first episode more: it was a bit more coherent with the puzzles. I felt that the second episode had few difficulty spikes with the puzzles and also few puzzles, that needed a plain "let's try everything from the inventory" approach. But don't get me wrong, it was still rather good. I also have to mention the gorgeous background art.

A full recommendation to all the adventure fans out there.

great voicetalent and acting. lot's of cool moments.
some puzzles are difficult as hell but there is a hintbutton with a gradual hintfeature to avoid stagnating the gameflow completely..

Another great hit with this franchise! I love Broken Sword from A to Z.
I am very glad that they brought back the point and click concept and removed the keyboard controls (found in the third game).

I like this story very much. It was unexpected and refreshing.

Broken Sword 5 is an awesome adventure game and hails the return of one of the best game franchises in adventure game history. The graphics are awesome, even if some of the animations are a little stiff and awkward. The voice acting for the most part is superb with standout performances from george and nico. The story is amazing and is right up there with broken sword 1 and 2. Now for some basic pros and cons.

PROS
1. voice acting
2. overall story is very well done that kept me engaged the whole way. I always loved the Indiana Jones aspects of the broken sword series and this game is no exception. its full of intrigue and suspense.
3. puzzles for the most part are well thought out and not too hard, but as in any adventure game there are some hard ones and some solutions that are basically just trial and error. there is a built in hint system that can help you, im pretty proud I ony had to use it on two puzzles. overall I give the puzzle difficulty of it a 6/10 in the fact that for the most part they will challenge you but not frustrate you.
4. The hand drawn backgrounds all look fantastic, and I mean FANTASTIC.
5. The length of the game is also really good, I beat the the game in about 12.5 hrs, which I think is the perfect length for a game.

CONS
1. Animations are a little wonkie and im not a huge fan of the 3d models they used for the characters, I wish they were hand drawn like the backgrounds
2. Humor and jokes while at times are truly funny, I believe this game misses on the jokes more than they hit. not a huge deal but I wanted to point it out.
3. While the cutscenes still look good, they are no where the level they were in broken sword 1 and 2.
4. the game for the most part ran smoothly but did crash on me twice, the good part though is it does auto save frequently, so was not a huge issue.
5. While I love the fan service and cameos I thought they had too many cameos and returning characters, and one to many goat puzzles lol.

CLOSING COMMENTS
This game is great I got it on sale and I cant reccomend it enough to anybody, especially if you played the other games in the series and enjoyed them, or if your an adventjure game fan in general. Although you should first play broken sword 1 and 2 bc even though this is the 5th game in the series, im pretty sure it follows the events of broken sword 2. they are also on sale right now. Broken Sword 5 is a great entry into the series, if I had to rank my fav broken sword games in order it would go

1. broken sword 1
2. broken sword 5
3. broken sword 2
4. broken sword 3
5. broken sword 4

I'm a huge fan of the Broken Sword series. George and Nico are second only to Guybrush and Elaine. I tried not to mind too much when the series shifted to 3D and some action for the third and fourth installments because Revolution were clearly handling the games with care and love for the genre. Still, I was thrilled when it became clear on Kickstarter that the fifth game would be 2D and action-free.

The artwork in the game is about the best of this style that I have ever seen in a game. Scenes are beautiful and detailed (and that really helps when you have to notice a slightly pink spot on a sort of orange spot). I had to resist taking screenshots because they would all be spoilers.

The game presents you with pretty standard environment, inventory, and dialog puzzles, but they all work pretty sensibly, even the decrypting puzzles late in the game. I never got stuck due to some ridiculously obtuse puzzle structure.

The worst I can say about the game is that there are so many spots to interact with, so many comments to hear (although still less than in a typical Daedalic game, by comparison) that you can progress pretty slowly and it's possible to get bored. Still, the story is well written with a typical Indiana Jones plus reluctant hero approach as in the other Broken Sword games. I did find it to be slightly less boring than the fourth game (which is finally on Steam, by the way). The religious aspect of the story focuses on a conspiracy-flavored long line of Gnostics protecting an artifact that could upset the balance of Jehovah and Lucifer, so you kind of know the story will take you around Europe and eventually to the Middle East.

So if you like the very best that standard point-and-click gameplay can offer, reasonable puzzles, and the best 2D artwork anywhere, this game is a must-play. Depending on your ability and your choice of pace, it's about a 12 hour game at least, possibly as much as 14 hours, longer than that other crowd-funded classic adventure game two-part installment that still isn't finished (ahem-cough-Broken-Age-cough).

I must say, this is probably one of the best Point and Click games i've played. I was introducted into the Broken Sword universe with this game, and from what i've been told, this is not even the best in the series. The puzzles were pretty fun barring one. The voice acting is top-notch and the gameplay is as smooth as you expect from a point and click game. The storyline itself was very interesting, delving into somewhat obscure aspects of Religion ( at least for me).

10/10.

Another awesome adventure game from Revolution. If you enjoyed the Broken Sword series so far or at least the first two games, this one comes highly recommended.
Those who aren't point and click adventure or Broken Sword fans may be turned off as this game requires patience.

Broken sword 5 now in 2D.5?

pros:
Voice acting, crystal clear and well done.
Graphics/Art, Looks great *_*
Good story, funny and clever dialogue
Lots of action!!!! (lots of peeps gettig iced XD )
Runs smootly
option to skip intros/cutscenes and dialogue
Steam achievements!


Cons:

Only issue I had, is the characters body language it is a lot better compared to the 3rd and 4th games but it is still lacking. Feels like their arms are clued to their sides but aye its only minor and this is just me being petty.


Overall it is a great game and worthy of the broken sword title (unlike the 4th ;=; "why u so bad") and what a way to revitalise the series!!!

7/10

Broken sword fans assemble!!!!!! ---and get this game :D

Just ended it and was a good trip back in memories, thanks to the huge amount of quotations.
The new plot is good too, as an old-school adventure through mysterious artifacts and ancient cults: not very original, but interesting.

I believe that finding new subjects for this kind of games it's become harder since the "conspiracies type" has been exploited to the bone... So, the efforts to make an original game fitting with characters and storylines created nineteen years ago it's more than appreciable.

PS= I'd like to deal with a spin-off adventure with young versions of Duane & Pearl Henderson. Just in case.
