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.

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.

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).

As a longstanding Broken Sword fan, I had been looking forward to this game for a long time. Visually, the backgrounds are a definite return to fantastic 2D form, even if the actual characters are somewhat incongruous. Still, I will give the game the credit it deserves and say it is aesthetically very pleasing.

I've always played Broken Sword, however, for the script as much as anything, and I found the humour which I'd so enoyed in earlier games sadly flat, as well as a storyline which failed to truly engage. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend the game to those with good memories of the early games (particularly if, like me, you actually enjoyed BS3 and 4). Keep your positive memories of the series and skip this game.

I loved the original games back in the day, and this game certainly gets points for recreating the feel of those games. But nostalgia alone can't make up for the fact that there are better adventure games coming out today (the Deponia series, for example). The story is poor, the humor is forced, and the characters come off as pompous and annoying (where as before they were charming). Worst of all, the puzzles are frustrating without being challenging.

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.

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.

"A robbery… a murder… and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure"

This sums it up well. It's another Broken Sword game that stays true to the older titles. You can't go wrong if you liked the other games in the series.

I've never been a fan of adventure games because you often have to be inside the head of the developer in order to solve obscure puzzles that make little logical sense. Aside from The Walking Dead, Broken Sword has always been an exception to that rule. The first two games featured great puzzles, snappy dialogue, and intriguing mysteries. But after an awful third and fourth entry into the series, I was afraid the adventure genre was dead to me.

Then along comes Broken Sword 5: The Serpents Curse. It does away with the horrendous transition to 3D and instead returns to gorgeous 2D backdrops. Back again is the clever dialogue and intriguing but not too obscure puzzles, and it's back one more time for another clever mystery. I really, really cannot reccoemend this game enough. You don't need to have played the others in the series, so it won't hurt to start here. If you love this game, go back and play the first two.

-I opened a skylight with a bottle of diet cola and mints, then used a grappling hook made out of a dust cover and a crowbar to escape a building. 10/10

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.

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.

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.

I really wanted to love this game. I've followed the series and played them all. Fond memories from my youth and all that. But this game was just... painful.
My biggest complaint is pacing. It is slow. Painfully slow. Every single sequence takes SO long to complete because of the ridiculously slow movement speed (seriously, guys, a jog won't kill you) and the stilted, meandering dialogue.
The puzzles lack any of the clever ingenuity of the early games. In this game they're reduced to lucky combinations of items, or downright nonsensical logic. It's no surprise they incorporated a hint system, because so many of the puzzles make zero sense.
There are many more issues, visibility of important puzzle components, janky mechanics, a frustrating inventory system, poor dialogue, but I think the biggest is just, the lack of a strong plot.
The whole thing is poorly written, and totally cliche, downright stealing elements from earlier games and just rehashing them.
Despite my love for the series, I can't recommend this game. It's janky, slow, poorly developed, and lacks the charm that really helps you put up with the bad. The plot isn't compelling, and there's really no incentive to see it through.
I'm disappointed.

I really enjoyed the first half of the game despite that detective, pain in the ♥♥♥♥ that he was to listen to. However the second half was quite a chore to get through, especially when I had to wait for a goat to walk up and down a hill, really slowly.

Outdated, but not in a charming way, hampered by the need to wait for animations to finish before you can talk to characters, it generally feels sluggish and at odds with the swashbuckling storyline. The art is clear but less expressive than bs1/2 and nor does it have the more expansive exploration of bs3. The best character arc in the game is that of a murderous quasi-butler who likes gardening. Playing feels a little like going through the motions at times.

I can say it's true what most people say about this game here. It's not as good as Part 1-3 BUT I still loved it.
It's pretty funny, partly a bit challenging and the story is nice as usual in the broken sword games.

I would recommend it for anybody who likes the broken sword games and to anybody who likes click-and-point adventures! Just don't have too high expectations then you won't be disappointed by this game!

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.
