Después de dos entregas bochornosas BS vuelve a recuperar el carisma y el saborcillo de los anteriores, y aunque no llega ni de lejos al genial "Shadows of the Templars" lo cierto es que consigue una secuela bastante aceptable. El juego es entretenido pero se hace extremadamente corto (con un final absurdamente abrupto), no obstante si deciden seguir la saga al menos lo estarán haciendo en la buena dirección.

Ha sido genial volver a jugar una aventura gráfica de las de antes y casi a la altura de sus dos grandes predecesores. Aunque al principio es un poco aburrido, por la repetición de escenarios y también por el ligero abuso de la nostalgia de las dos primeras entregas, hacia la mitad de la historia crece el interés y gana muchísimo a nivel argumental.
Además, la mayor parte de los escenarios de todo el juego están hechos con un mimo y un nivel de detalle que hace que el juego sea una delicia visualmente. Quizá el sonido del juego sea lo que menos llama la atención, en comparación con las bandas sonoras de los primeros, simplemente quedando en éste a un nivel correcto.

Por otra parte, no puedo más que sentir indignación hacia el trabajo de doblaje al castellano del juego. Es una obviedad que lo catalán tiene un peso clave en la aventura, y es totalmente incomprensible que los dobladores pronuncien el nombre del cuadro protagonista, "La maledicció" ("La maldición" en castellano, en catalán se pronuncia "la maledicsió) como si fuera una palabra italiana.
De verdad, es algo muy hiriente para los catalanoparlantes que tus propios compatriotas no sepan pronunciar una simple palabra en catalán o, como mínimo, que no hagan una pequeña investigación para averiguar cómo se pronuncia tal palabra correctamente y no quedar como ignorantes. Esto en el caso de que aceptemos que ha sido un error por parte del estudio de doblaje, y que no hay segundas intenciones. De todas formas, en el doblaje inglés, aunque no acentuaban la palabra correctamente, sí que la pronunciaban bien, lo cual hace mucho más difícil pensar de dónde han sacado la idea de pronunciarla en italiano.

En fin, que lo he jugado todo con el doblaje inglés, porque se me hacía insoportable escuchar tamaña falta de respeto por la cultura de tu propio país.

Genial juego para volver a ese tiempo de aventuras gráficas, y de la mano de una de las clásicas, Broken Sword. Se nota que han pasado los años, tanto para bien como para mal. De lo mejor del juego, me quedo con su excelente apartado gráfico, no por potente, sino proque es una delicia ver los decorados y paisajes con ese estilo de dibujo que te deja la boca abierta, la verdad. Las cinemática, en cambio, no están muy logradas (en cuanto a calidad, parecen de hace varios años).

Sin embargo, lo que otrora fue su fuerte, el argumento, en este ha decaído un poco; pero bueno, es que yo creo que los templarios ya no daban para más, y claro, eso tiene algo que ver; que los gnósticos deslucen un poco en comparación.

Algunos se quejan del final, pero la verdad, para ser sinceros, es que los finales de los BS nunca han sido su fuerte (excepto en los dos primeros, pero es que esos dos primeros fueron unas entregas soberbias). Los puzzles, en general fáciles, pero sin exagerar, hace que la aventura sea fluida, sin llegar a exaperar y en alguno tienes que devanarte un poco los sesos. Me ha gustado que sea así.

En general, me ha satisfecho, sobre todo porque creo que han ido por el buen camino, haciendo un juego que recuerda mucho y bien a las primeras excelentes entregas (y no a las posteriores, que eran claramente inferiores). Siempre es agradable echarle el guante a un BS, y como backer que ayudó al proyecto en Kickstarter, no me siento decepcionado.

No será un antes y un después, pero pasaréis un rato más que agradable, con las bromas, guiños a anteriores entregas y demás. Lo recomiendo!!

P.D.: Una pena, para los españoles, no poder contar con la voz de siempre de George...

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.

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.

If you're expecting some of that Broken Sword magic that the first two games had, I'd suggest you rather go replay those two. My main problems are that it becomes tediously boring after the first half and that the attempts at humor are embarrassing. Seriously, I felt embarrassed for whoever wrote some of those 'jokes'. Such a disappointment.

After the not-so-good 3D installments, Revolution goes back to its trademark 2D point-and-click adventure style. Broken Sword 5 is a lot like the first 2 games but a little worse in almost every aspect. Pretty short, too. Still a good game that should be picked up by fans of the series.

One of the better games to come out of Kickstarter so far.

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.

a joy to watch the story unfold. puzzles and mystery.
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..

a very good part in the broken sword series.
loved it.

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 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.

Finally, George and Nico are back. There’s always something special about my favourite American tourist and French journalist stumbling into conspiracies, mysteries and dangers that threaten the world if not stopped in a timely manner and “The Serpent’s Curse” is no exception. The adventure unfolds once again in Paris, City of Lights, Love, Art and Death. George, currently employed by an insurance company, and Nico, still freelancing for La Liberté, meet at the opening of an exposition at a rather small gallery which is suddenly interrupted by a gun-wielding pizza delivery boy, stealing one of the many paintings and fatally shooting the gallery owner. The hunt for the thief/murderer and the stolen painting eventually uncovers a a threat for humanity itself and leads the dynamic duo to a place of biblical mythology.

There are many nods to the serie’s origins and beloved characters from other parts do – as is traditional – make rather surprising re-appearances during the course of the game and prove to be as helpful now as they were when you first encountered them. The game play is that of a classic point-and-click adventure and easy to handle, though on occasion not very exact. In the German version, which I’ve played, I noticed several translation errors, most notably the flower shop owner’s mouse over which identified her as the “intercom”. However this doesn’t affect the game play negatively at all, so I suppose there’s really no reason to complain. The game’s riddles aren’t that difficult and the new Hint System actually gives the kind of hints which enable you to solve the problems on your own rather than clicking your way through to the solution or googling a walkthrough.

I love the game’s style which is as close to the original comic style as possible while giving it a modern 3D look. The music is amazing, too, and a certain flowery tune has been stuck in my head for a while now. The game has many humerous scenes and examining items or hotspots can be quite entertaining, as always when George’s (or Nico’s) opinion is requested. Of course as always, the game is well-researched and rather engaging.

Unfortunately there are also a few downsides. The game is indeed rather short and I feel somehow that the – for lack of better term – ‘philosophical’ part of the storyline could have been expanded on. On precisely two instances, I had problems with the game not working properly: both times the game could either not play or exit a cut scene. This appears to be a bug that has been around for a while. It is quite annoying and I therefore advise you to save your game, and save often, as the auto-saved file is likely to give your grief in these instances.

Nevertheless, if you love this genre, George & Nico and brain teasers, this game is for you. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Even if you haven’t played Broken Sword before, you will find this entertaining.
