Simply said, this is one of the most engaging, exciting and just downright fun point and click adventure games that I have ever played. You play as both George Stobbart and Nico Collard, a tourist and journalist that end up interwined in a thick plot of conspiracy and adventure dealing with the rebirth of the Knights' Templar. The quest for the Broken Sword of Baphomet takes you from the calm and romantic Parisian streets to the most perilous of Syrian deserts as you trek the globe in search of clues and answers to the game's many innovative and ingenius puzzles. Each and every one of these locations are brilliantly animated, resulting in what's simply one of the most beautiful adventure games of recent memory. Broken Sword: Shadow Of the Templars is not to be missed by anyone, whether you are a veteran point and click gamer, or just looking for a thrilling experience with a great plot, fantastic graphics and a somewhat 'Indiana Jones' feel that you won't soon forget!

The first Broken Sword game will always have a special place in my gamer heart, seeing how it was one of the first adventure games I played.
The game has everything; a good story that gives you the feeling that the creators did quite some research as they wrote the script. It has reasonably challangeing puzzles, humor and wit, as well as loveable characters and beautiful sceneries. And now, with the additions made in the Director's Cut, the game gets even better!

If you haven't already, you should really add this classic to your list of games played.

Broken Sword is an adventure game on the must play list. The story is one of the most intriguing I've ever played. It combines with good puzzles to keep you thinking. If you get the game, be aware that the director's cut has this annoying circle that appears on objects that you can interact with and they have changed some of the scenes. This might not be so bad for people getting into adventure games or someone that has never played this game, but returning gamers beware.

Quite possibly my favorite adventure game of all time, it is right there with Grim Fandango. This remaster is not bad, there is even a cute little intro, where you play as Nico.
Yes, I do recommend this game.

Much better to pick up the original. The blue dots are stupid, the pacing of the story suffers for the added content, the beginning of the story with Nico is nowhere near as interesting as George and the additional mini-games are awful. Avoid and find a copy of the original and best

This game is great. It truly feels like an adventure, and makes excellent use of enviornment, music, and game feel to immerse you.

I quite like the additions they put in with the directors cut version, most of them fit very well, and it really helps develop Nico's character, but I feel some of the puzzles in that section were unfair (The hint system malfunctioned) and some just didn't fit in, and puzzles like it were never seen again (Thankfully)

The characters are lovable, the comedy is quirky- and serious when it needs to be. The story is captivating, and you really feel like a character, discovering things as they do, and that adds to it feeling like an adventure. The dark-cartoon world it takes place in is done very well. It's not affraid to play up its wacky cartoon side, but still feel like a serious story.

I first got this game upon its original release for the playstation 1. I was twelve, I think, and George Stobbart's adventure was an amazing experience to me then. 2014 and things haven't changed. The director's cut has a new story weaved in to the original plot concerning Nico's father ( I think we were all wondering why she sat about doing nothing while George was risking his life). That, and some added mini-games make the experience a little fresher for old fans returning to the series. This isn't one for the gameplay, though; it's all about the story, humourous dialogue and the many whacky characters you meet along the way. You'll travel from Paris, to Syria, Ireland (my personal favourite) and a few other countries in Europe, asking people to shake your hand, or for their opinion on your grease stained tissue that you found in a sewer in Paris. Wonderful!

Dieses Spiel hat mir schon damals viel Freude bereitet und auch nach vielen Jahren tut es dies immer noch! Sehr sympathische Charaktere, liebevolle Gestaltung der verschiedenen Umgebungen und gute Rätsel. Ein Point and Click Adventure, welches man immer wieder gerne mal durchspielt. Kann ich nur empfehlen ;)

This is an amazing game. Brilliant plot that draws you in, likeable protagonists.

The puzzles are a nice level of difficulty and with a bit of thought can be cracked.

I love "point and click" style games and I would thoroughly recommend trying this if for some reason like with me this has passed you by.
