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! :]

Immediately grabbed me.

The quality of the voice acting is thankfully superb, but it is the animation that has blown me away. There are lots of little details with characters body language that are truly impressive.

Based on my short time with the game so far, anyone who has played Broken Sword 1 or 2, or any other classic point and click adventure game, will feel right at home. Hearing the Revolution fanfare at the beginning was like sinking into a warm comfy bath :)

Dear Adventurecommunity,

After My first impressions of this Game I can say the Broken Sword Series is back. The lovely Graphics, the Voice Acting and the Story make this hole Game to a great Revolution of the Series. From the Design it is like the first two Parts of the Broken Sword Series, but with new features like an Autosave and Game Hind function.

All in all I would thank Mr. Charles Cecil and the Kickstarter Backers who make this all possible. So i hope You all will enjoy this Game and happy Investigating.

Your DickEvil

An Euch Adventurefreunde,

nach meinen ersten Eindrücken ist es wirklich fantastisch geworden. Es sieht wunderschön aus und macht einen lebendigen Eindruck, sehr schöne deutsche Synchronisation. George wird wieder von dem gleichen Sprecher synchronisiert und auch die anderen Sprecher sind sehr gut gesprochen. Es spielt sich wie damals beim ersten und zweiten Teil. Also wieder back to the roots. Die Geschichte geht spannend voran und die Rästel sind logisch.

Es ist wieder wie damals, Nico und George in Paris, danke Charles Cecil und alle Kickstarter Backer das ihr dieses Spiel für uns Fans möglich gemacht habt.

So dann werde ich mal weiter ermitteln und die Verschwörung versuchen aufzudecken.

Viel Spaß beim spielen liebe Adventure und Rätselfreunde

Euer DickEvil

I probably won't ever get around to writing a full-on review for the game, but I highly recommend it if you're a fan of the 2D Broken Sword games. The game is slightly more hint-through-speech-oriented than I would like in a point-and-clicker, but if you can look past that minor off-put and appreciate the game and its innards for what it is, you'll love it, for sure.

The game is various levels of awesome.

There are some moments when the lips don't move. Yet, that's the only complaint I have with the game!

A tutorial for newcomers and an autosave. That and various great options. Man, I'm loving this version <3
