‘Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror – Remastered’ is a stunning update to the multi million-selling original. While investigating a ruthless drug gang, journalist Nico Collard unexpectedly comes across an ancient artifact. Little can she know that the ornately carved obsidian stone will lead her, and her adventuring companion George Stobbart, into a mysterious escapade of intrigue and deceit, in which they must overcome powerful forces and antagonists who will stop at nothing to fulfil their evil ambitions.

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

I Have been a Broken Sword Fan Since 1996 but when they released Broken Sword 3 I didnt get on with it and pretty much walked away from the series. I still had Broken Sword 1 & 2 to replay which were both fantastic. When I heard Broken Sword was coming back with Broken Sword 5 I had realised I really did walk away from the series as I didnt even know there was a 4th lol. Now that all 5 games have been released on Steam as an oldschool fan I will be playing through 1 & 2 again and then I will go into 3 and 4 with an open mind and look forward to the return to a 2d adventure game in 5. I have the original CD copy of 1 & 2, but when I saw they were re released as a remastered directors cut's on Steam I decided to buy them again.

Broken Sword 2 - The Smoking Mirror:Remastered

Again with a remastered version I was a little aprehensive, more so with BS2R as BS2 is my favourite BS to date (I havent played 3,4 & 5 yet. As we all know when creators go back and mess with things that were already great they can make alterations that will annoy returning fans etc.

With BS2R, they basically left the core game as the original was back in 1997. With BS1DC they took out some chunks and you couldent actually die as you could in the original 96 version. In BS2R they left the ability to die firmly in place and didnt take out the blood. The additions were nice like the new dialogue boxes and some new easter eggs which were not in the original.

I would recommend this game to Vetran Broken Sword fans to replay through this great game again. I would also strongly recommend this game to any other 2D adventure game fans (Grim Fandango, Monkey Island etc.) who may have missed the Broken Sword series.

Very pleased with this as I was back in 97.

I have yet to play 5 but lets hope with its success more Broken Swords will follow.

Broken Sword 2 - the Smoking Mirror: Remastered * 7/10

A fresh Remastered edition for a great sequel of Broken Sword. Again we see Our protagonists George and Nico Kicked straight in action... Well, maybe just George because Nico's being kidnapped by a huge thug from the empty house of a disappeared archeologist she was supposed to interview. So George finds himself tied to a chair with a posonous spider slowly approaching him.
I enjoyed the story from this chapter, the exotic locations you have to visit and the silly atomsphere and situations happening through the game are kind of a constant of the whole series. You will also meet some old friend from the first Broken Sword.
The interface is the same classic used in the previous game: a classic point & click setup, with mouse controls, a classic inventory system and most importantly many choices of subjects for dialogues with other characters. As a Remastered edition you can easily notice the backgrounds and the landscapes are improved. Unfortunately the characters are still rendered in poor resolution which I don't actually understand the reason behind this lack.

+++Pros+++
  • STORY. I really enjoyed this chapter, You jump into action, your investigations will bring you again all around the world but the most imortant is the end. I also really liked some funny moments, and the way towards the end George and Nico get separate sequences, to join back again.
  • RIDDLES. As usual all along the game there are Some nice puzzles, especially towards the end.
  • REMASTERED. This chapter has been remastered so you can enjoy even more all the locations and landscapes you'll run through the game, though...
---Cons---
  • HALF-REMASTERED. ...The characters look quite poorly detailed as if they're still the old animations from the original game which doesn't quite make sense to me.
  • ODD RIDDLES AND MAZE. Some Puzzles are not as good as the rest of the game or as the previous Broken Sword, not to mention the swamp maze where it was quite hard to figure the hot zones to go in other directions. But I guess it's just me being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ because I bet that wasn't even meant to be that great maze I felt like.
  • RUSHED LAST SECTION. I had the feeling that the Story was a little rushed towards the end. It's not like it sucks, I alrady stated I enjoyed the plot. It's just that it looked rushed, somehow.

Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror - Remastered 4/5: Hra s nevděčným úkolem; dostát statusu a kvalitám svého předchůdce. Tedy titulu, který byl záhy po uvedení považován za okamžitou klasiku a dodnes nenajdete žebříček nejlepších (nejen) adventurních her, kde by nefiguroval na příčkách vůbec nejvyšších. Zaslouženě. Ovšem druhý díl tam nikdy nenajdete. Zaslouženě.

Proč? Jednak se vydal oproti "gabrielknightovskému" stylu jedničky "indianajonesovskou" cestou. Což by nemuselo vůbec vadit, kdyby to zároveň nemělo výrazně horší děj, nové postavy nebyly nemastné neslanné, mezi ústředním duem to aspoň tu a tam zajiskřilo a zároveň to nebylo výrazně kratší i jednodušší, méně výpravné a ani památných momentů (ať již dějových či adventurních), kterých je jednička plná, se tu příliš neurodilo. Ve výsledku však nejvíce bije do očí naprostý (a stěží pochopitelný) odklon od puzzlů. Ve dvojce je totiž jeden jediný (mimochodem výtečný) a to až na úplném konci v mayské pyramidě.

Ostatně i onomu proklamovanému "remasteru" není věnována taková péče jaká se dostala jedničce. Ta krom grafického vylepšení, nového nahrání hudby, comicsového prequelu, deníku apod. dostala i zbrusu nové pasáže. Paradoxní je to o to více, že dvojka by "ze scén navíc" profitovala mnohem více než jednička, kde byly přeci jen poněkud navíc.

Ovšem když je něco horší než jedna z vůbec nejlepších her svého žánru, tak to ještě neznamená, že je to špatné. A druhý Broken Sword je nade vší pochybnost výtečnou adventurou samou o sobě; jen není příliš dobrým Broken Swordem.
