I own the entire Broken Sword Series, the earlier series 1-3 on my phone and 5 on my computer. The Smoking Mirror is an excellent Point-Click Adventure game. I can't say enough good things about the entire Broken Sword series but if you're interested in intriguing and fun adventures, something that has some historical relevance and some taste of reality and fiction, then these games are well worth a try. Without spoiling too much, the destinations were very interesting, I love the two main characters in the story, the protagonists are believable and the intermittent characters and plots are allot of fun. I literally felt like I was watching a movie or reading a really good book. Lastly the game implements a quarry guide which helps you out in the stickiest of puzzles.

Highly recommended if you love Point-Click adventure games.

More of the same from Broken Sword. With no need to change an already strong formula, this sequel delivers exactly what you're wanting if you've played the first game: more of the first game. More wit, more charm, more places to explore, more headache enducing confusing puzzles and more mysteries to solve.

It is strange to say that opting for no-change over change is a brave move, but these days it is in gaming. So many sequels get it wrong and take away something many love for something or another many hate. So here we are. Broken Sword 2 is a braveish clone/sequel to an excellent game and is an excellent game by proxy.

This was my first contact with BS series. I've played it in the 90's - with a lot of Floopy disks to UnARJ lol.
Never forgot this game and from time to time I play it again.

The remastered version had some issue thought - mainly with the speech sounds that sometimes played in a glitchy volume.

AWSOME game!

The second installment to the Broken Sword series... What can I say, as a kid I spent the longest time trying to figure out what to do during the demo, instead I kept on making the guy at the wharf, fart while eating beans. No regrets, definitely a key point to the plot. Loved it then, still love it now.

I cannot find any flaws with the game itself, beyond the part where they started to make things just a little more challenging, but that in itself is a reward.

As this is a Remaster version, the animation was much better than the first one.

However, some parts of the storyline still quite odd.

Anyway, this one still with quite high quality and worth playing.

My favourite game in the series. Some puzzles are not very obvious to figure out, but it's still easier to follow the game's logic that it is with most point-and-click adventure games of its time.

Inte lika bra som första spelet i "Broken Swoed"-serien. Den härliga humorn finns där och det är kul att få återse vissa av karaktärerna man lärde känna i det förra ävntyret. Dock finns det ett par underliga hopp i spelets story som för mig känns ganska ologiska. Slutet känns också lite snopet men jag tänker ändå ge George och Nicole en ny chans snart, och försöka ta mig genom tredje äventyret i Broken Sword.

Broken Sword 2 Remastered Review
The game takes place after 6 months of the first game following the story of Nico and George. Instead of templars they will be following a lead regarding a Mayan Artifact </Synopsis>. Some critics/fans held Shadow of templars better than Smoking mirror but for my personally tastes i find this game lot better. Not only from dialogue aspects and better graphics, but also from story/length. Its somewhat shorter than previous game, but thats how i prefer my Adventure games (Not too long)

Great Points
  • Better story than in first game, less siderailing & filler hubs
  • Cool characters making return from first game
  • Mayan's are pretty cool subject
  • Great & Funny dialogue
Bad Points
  • Some very minor bugs do occur by clicking sometimes the objectives (Nothing too drastic)
  • Was wishing for more puzzles, first game had more

A great sequel which maintains the charm of the first game (same colourful characters, same witty dialogues) . A must have for any fan of the series.

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 1, 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.

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.

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.
