This is easily one of my favourite Broken Sword games.
The graphics are very crisp and clean, old-style point and click like their first game.
Wonderful storyline, puzzles, and voice acting.

Really gets you thinking like MacGyver!

Many people are jaded by Kickstarters that either fail or deliver a poor product. Broken Sword 5 is proof that in the right hands, your pledge can be put to good use. This was the best Broken Sword since the original and even for an experienced adventure gamer like me, the full game took 12 hours to beat, which is long for an adventure game. They went back to the original style and while they took no risks with the storyline, sticking to fairly predictable themes, created an absolute diamond of a game. Highly recommended!

Short and easy, but very pretty. The gameplay is virtually unchanged from the first two, so no decline in that sense. The plot is standard bad guys trying to take control of some super powerful religious artifact from middle ages. The writing is on par with the originals. Overall pretty decent p&c.

Pros:
- Beautiful handmade graphics
- Nice character models
- Rolf Saxon

Cons:
- Some jokes and cameos from previous games are really awkward (Moue, Piermont)
- Many puzzles are kind of ridiculous
- The story is too straightforward, no way to choose a little alternative path or do things in another order
- Seriously, guys, couldn't you hire people that would be capable of writing a less naive scenario?

As an avid adventure games player, I am really glad that Revolution had decided to make a new Broken Sword and I was more than happy to support the Kickstarter campaign. However, after 2 years of development, I definitely expected more than this.

Back when the first Broken Sword game came out, I was just a kid. I remember being taken away by the cartoon-style graphics, and the mystery revolving the killer-clown and the templars. I loved that game, and I loved Broken Sword 2 as well. Then the 3D titles came, and I played them, but they never really hit the spot for me, not like the first two games did.

With Broken Sword 5 - the Serpent's Curse, I feel it's safe to say that Broken Sword is back. If you loved the first two games, you will love this one as well. The humor, the gameplay and the all-around feel of the game is very similar to the way this series started.

I never write reviews for a game, but this one had me experiencing nostalgia as well as gripping story, so I felt that I had to recommend this to other people. I miss the cartoon graphics of the old games, but this in no way effects my overall experience. 10/10 for fans of Broken Sword, and a most enjoyable game for all fans of point-and-click adventure games.

If you like adventure games you owe it to yourself to play .... THIS! Broken Sword 5! You do not -have- to have played the first 4 games, but you still should at least play the first 2 or 3. I know, after this 5th one - if you play it, you'll WANT to play the earlier ones, too.

Such amazing, lovingly crafted adventures! :]
