断剑系列的第二部,依旧是George 和Nico 的故事。Steam上的依然是重置版,可以调整窗口大小的设计拯救了玩家们的眼睛(虽然字幕还是一如既往的小)。这系列的性价比一直很不错,本作也不例外。

游戏总体而言算是7分的水平,不过在它的衬托下,一代的总评在我心目中顺利的升到了8。和前作相比,本作在价格上涨1刀的同时,流程也缩水到 6-8小时,剧情质量也略有下降。解谜部分增加了时间系统和神作可能性,但是去掉了前作中深受好评的小游戏。其它部分和第一部差不多:过场依旧没字幕,Nico换了身衣服,画面也是一如既往的2D美漫风。

本作的剧情在一代故事发生之后:George回美国看病重的父亲,并且在父亲去世之后决定住在法国;而 Nico 去调查一个造假集团,并且从集团里偷出来一块黑石头。于是乎二代游戏一开场就又是开门杀:两人被神秘组织袭击,Nico被绑架,而George被关在屋子里等着变烤猪。不过相比这个开场,本作的故事稍显虎头蛇尾:前面40-50%的进度是在救Nico,而且推进的速度相当快;而后面找石头的三条线却是异常的短,而且由于谜题设计的原因让人感觉有点拖戏;最后的结尾又过于仓促,导致个人对本作剧情的评价不高。还有一点比较怨念的是Nico 妹子的戏份进一步缩水,由四六开缩到了三七开乃至二八开……不过前作的老角色依然有出场,而且一些地方的幽默感也保留了下来,算是小加分。

本作的解谜部分……退化的好厉害啊!先不说人物走路和行动速度依旧是慢的想杀人的节奏,也不说那个坑爹的操作把我坑死了两次,就谜题本身是个毛线啊!首先是废道具,Nico的口红从头到尾没用过,而且也没什么剧情意义;其次是相当一部分的谜题就是各种对话对话对话跑路跑路跑路,不仅没什么线索,而且烦人的要死——刚才好像说过这系列行动速度慢来着?游戏中只有最后两个谜题算是稍微有点技术含量,但是Nico 线那个……从头到尾就是先转俩轮子组成一个小方块的图案再用俩小方块的图案组成一个大方块,大方块还居然有4个?!还不如一代那个翻译密码= = 新增的限时操作可以看出制作组的努力,但是操作本身的问题导致这个部分最后的鸡肋化……这部分本质就是告诉玩家点点点也会神作的。

其实本作除了剧情和解谜这两部分略渣之外剩下的都还行,制作也大抵保持了前作的水准,也不乏小亮点。但是作为一个文字冒险AVG,剧情解谜都不给力……总之是7分的水平吧,心理落差再额外扣个0.5分,就酱。

Personal rating: 7/10

PROS:
+ great story telling
+ atmosphere of an adventure
+ (mostly) fun puzzles
+ no clumsy & ugly 3D graphics (like in BS3 & BS4)
+ good voice acting
+ most compatibility issues fixed in Remastered version

CONS:
- some puzzles make less sense
- hints added by the Remastered version take from the challenge
- "quick time events" which feel a bit out of place compared to the point&click style

Comment:
I first played this game over a decade ago. I picked it up before playing BS1. Along with my dad we would sit down and try to solve the puzzles and find the correct item combinations to move us forward in the storyline. The game felt relaxing and I really enjoyed that time. I finished it a couple of times since then and I got this Remastered version to see if it can replace my decaying CDs and to see a fix for the compatibility issues the game had. And yes, this Remastered edition is worth it. BS2 is not the best game in the world but it's fun and enjoyable. Very relaxing too, apart from the QTEs where you had to time something otherwise you were screwed. While I get the concept it felt out of place for this adventure game style. I also do not like the hints but simply just because I played the original version and I see how it takes the challenge out. But that is just my opinion on them. Overall a good game worth your time so I recommend it to all fans of the point&click genre.

Enjoyable romp that's not quite as epic as the first game, but the graphics are slightly improved and it's still an enjoyable adventure.

If you haven't played the first Broken Sword, go do that first. Although it isn't really necessary to understand the plot, there are a few references that you'll miss which might diminish the experience. Anyway, the Smoking Mirror was a very good sequel. It didn't really change anything from the original, but that's a good thing. The new plot is pretty interesting and takes you to new and exotic locations. If you liked Broken Sword 1, I don't see why you wouldn't like this one. It was a bit short, but still very enjoyable throughout the entire game. Lots of funny and memorable moments, definitely worth the occasional frustration caused by some of the puzzles. Besides, you can always just use a walkthrough if you get really stuck.

A Review Mostly for me so I know I’ve completed the story, as well as feedback on the game.

My Thoughts:- The 2nd Broken Sword game where a few improvements have been made to the art and the game itself, George and Nicole are back on another adventure this time to save the world.
Just like the 1st game it’s a point n click adventure game with more puzzles.
Has a Help system to give you hints on how to progress in the game although will spoil the achievement of you doing it for yourself.

Achievements:- N/A

What Could Be Added:- Achievements

Rating:- 7 / 10

A worthy sequel to the first Broken Sword, Broken Sword and the Smoking Mirror mantains all the positive aspects from the previous installment on the series and on some cases even improves them. The only con in relation to the first game is the playtime, which I found it shorter by some 3 hours. Anyhow, Broken Sword 2 deals, yet again, with an interesting theme, this time, the Mayans and their myth of the god Tezcatlipoca. It's different from the Templars and in a good way. The graphics and animations are pretty much the same and Broken Sword still can achieve to be a comical game at some stages. The ending was the only aspect I found a bit disappointing, as it looked to be kind of rushed out and after the main enemy had been dealt with... It simply ended. Concluding, if you enjoyed the first Broken Sword - you will most surely enjoy the second one.

PS: Broken Sword 5 is the next game I am gonna play from the series. Through reading some reviews on Broken Sword 3 and 4 I came to the conclusion that they are not worth playing or buying because they diverge from their point&click ancestors. Please let me know if you think they are worth playing, and thanks in advance.

Broken Sword 2 offers pretty much identical gameplay to the first one. The story on this one felt less than believable and was often times plain comical. Like the first one, this is a very casual adventure; the puzzles are extremely easy, plus the blue markers remove any difficulty in finding whatever you need. There is also a hint system in the unlikely event you ever get stuck. The movement is still slow paced. Often times you have to wait for an animation sequence to complete and you can't double-click to run or quickly move from one location to the next. Overall, it was is a reasonably well done adventure game that feels a little dated.

Very interesting sequel to the first amazing Broken Sword game. Whilst not as good as the original, I feel this game still belongs in the hall of fame for point and click adventures.

It continues all the great elements that the first game had, and has it's own interesting continuation of the characters. The only downside to this game I feel is the character artwork for Nicole, the artwork portraying her character animation looks horrible compared to the facial conversation artwork, I can't believe they didn't improve it.

Still, it's a great game to play.

Broken Sword 2 is a decent sequel to Broken Sword 2, but definitely weaker than the original. The story is not as good, with a far more black and white us vs them (while the original had three factions which made the story more interesting). For the longest time I was afraid they had remade Nico into nothing but a side-character who does nothing but get rescued, but luckily she does get to do more stuff later in the game.

The biggest let down was the number of time-wasting puzzles though. I.e. puzzles that are not hard to figure out, but takes a long time to do... or in the case of the jungle section, not even to do, just walking around (in the directors cut of the first game it was possible to fasttravel by dubbelclicking... the remastered version of the second does not seem to have that). Or when you want to tie two things together with a rope and you click on one of them and George instead says it would be better to tie it to the other first... instead of just doing that.
Together with some puzzles that have frankly stupid or contrived solutions (or the puzzles themselves are contrived) it certainly makes it weaker than the first game and far shorter. Sure it took me 7h vs the 10h of the original, but I'd still say it was half as short... the additional two hours felt artificially prolonged by the time-wasting aspect of some of the puzzles.

However, while it is IMO weaker than the first game, it is still a good adventure game. If you enjoyed the first you will probably enjoy this one for the most part. If you haven't played the first, start with that instead.

Point and click adventure classic. Just like the predecessor it is a must play for fan of the genre. Solid story, beautiful graphics and memorable characters. 8/10


NOTE: It goes very often on sale with the first game in the series.

Those who are fans of point-and-click adventures will love this as the logic train derailed sometime between the first and second game and you Will be needing that help system or a heap of patience; to be honest, probably both. Definitely a great series for the genre with a mostly solid plot and an actual possibility of dying this time around. The only downside I can see is a comparitively short play time compared to the first game even with the two unnecessarily long puzzles towards the end.

An excellent sequel to the classic Broken Sword. It has all the compelling adventuring and puzzle solving of the first game, this time much of it in South America. The main remastering is the addition of portraits of the characters during dialogue to make conversations less boring. A highly recommended and under-rated adventure game, especially if you like the first Broken Sword.

Let me just start off with saying i'm not a huge fan of the Point and Click genre, but when I saw Broken Sword 2 it looked like a pretty cool game. When I first booted up the game the menu was lacking in detail, but that was not what I was here for. When I got into the game I was greeted with a honestly cool cartoon for the first part of the game. So then there I was in the game that I would love. The story is great, characters are great, point and click mechanics are great, great puzzles, ETC.
Overall 10/10

As much fun as the first, I thought Broken Sword 2 was even more enjoyable. The art style and the voice acting and writing are excellent, and I felt very engaged with the story and the puzzles. That said many puzzles, even the early ones were too difficult for me without a bunch of hints, but at least the game acknowledges that with the in-game hints, and it's quite possible that has more to do with me being terrible at puzzles than with the game! Really enjoyed, a must-buy for anyone who likes point and click adventure games, and I'm looking forward to playing the next installment.

I haven't competed the game yet but is great. This is my first point and click adventure I've ever actually played and I'm thinking about getting some more because of this one. If you like mysteries and adventure then this game is for you. I really recommend this game to anyone who wants to get into point and click adventure games.
