4.0 out of 5 stars Paris in the fall... 24 Nov 2006
By JC VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Broken Sword saga kicks off with the best you can get in point 'n' click adventure. You play George Stobbart, an American tourist who's visiting Europe. After a stop off for a coffee at a French cafe, George finds himself chasing after an international assassin dressed as a clown, gets dragged into a global conspiracy with roots going back to the 11th century, travels the world in trying to find pieces of a puzzle to a mysterious document and to top it all off he gets continuously heckled by a French journalist.

Although this sounds like something Dave Gorman would end up doing by accident after getting drunk, the game itself is a supurb piece of entertainment. The puzzles take you in gradually - there's nothing here that is so quirky and so abstract you'll hurt yourself thinking about it -and the first half an hour is probably the most fun I've had on a computer game. Revolution had a go at the adventure genre with Lure of the Temptress, improved upon it with Beneath the Steel Sky and ended up with creating one of the most likeable characters to grace a computer screen, with no small thanks to Rolf Saxon who plays him.

BS 2 goes off on a tangent with more quirky humour and slightly harder puzzles. Indeed, at one point George himself states that "I scare myself sometimes" when trying to work out one in a particular. This makes out that the creators are self-aware and know how other games can very nearly be impossible to work out unless you use the old "try everything with everything else" technique which gives no sense of enjoyment - just relief that you can get on with your life. The second - and the rest of them - are enjoyable, but the first will never be beaten.

American hero, French heroine, British humour. Supurb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth ten times more than it costs. 9 Aug 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Broken Sword The sleeping Dragon first and enjoyed it so much I looked for more of the same and discovered Broken Sword 1 and 2 on Amazon.Other reviewers have given these games a glowing report so all I shall do is endorse every good thing they,ve said. At this giveaway price you will be getting a real bargain. Go ahead and buy in case supplies dry up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius 8 Jan 2006
By A Customer
This is perhaps the greatest point and click saga ever made and in my opinion the greatest games period. The humour, action,puzzles and voice work is superb. Believe me when I say YOU MUST OWN THIS GAME!!!! You wont regret it.
p.s I'd advise buying this with the third game Sleeping Dragon, the best of the series.
p.p.s A new game will be arriving soon called the Angel of Death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series 30 Oct 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The whole Broken Sword series is excellent. Lot of puzzles to keep your brain going. The earlier ones are slightly easier than the newer series so you may wish to try these first before progressing but I would certainly recommend them

paris: a brilliant setting for a game its colourful backgrounds and fantastic theme tunes really do make this game. The story line has so much depth and is really long. There are so many different places to go and lots of individual characters with their own voices and attitudes.after you finish the first game you are desperate to play the second, buy this game !!!!! a bargain at only 5 pounds alot of credit to amazon on the price and delivery too

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a great series 11 Nov 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I happened to play Broken Sword 3 before I got hold of these, but I got stuck and did not complete it. Playing these two inspired me to dash back to finish it, (and run out to buy Angel of Death), they were so entertaining. Harking back to the days where everything was 2D and game designers apparently had a sense of humour, both games are brilliant, although I feel the original is slightly better. George, the American goofball hero, is an endearing character prompted by circumstances, pretty journalists and blatant curiosity, to get involved in a whirlwind plot of murder, secret societies and exploding accordions. Hilarious.
Broken Sword 2 I found to be a slightly less thrilling fill in between 1 and 3. The major flaw was the lack of excitement at the end. In the other Broken Sword installments you have to think and act quickly to prevent the villains bumping you off sharpish. Here all you had to do was solve Nico and George's separate puzzles, walk a few steps and settle back to watch the final cutscene.
Nonetheless, I loved these two games and they have successfully hooked me on all present and future volumes of the Broken Sword series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Brings back memories. 17 Mar 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I was younger, my brother used to own the first game of the Broken Sword franchise and I would have a go on it, completing a few levels. But then I got stuck on a certain level and I never got to finish the game. Years later, when I discovered that they were still selling these games on Amazon, I just had to get my hands on them again.

The Shadow of the Templars and the Smoking Mirror are great point and click adventure games that involve solving puzzles and interacting with other characters. Set in several locations around the world, George Stobbart, an American tourist and his love interest, a French journalist named Nico Collard, solve mysteries connected with parts of history including the Knights Templars.

These two Broken Sword games are really fun to play; the highlights for me are that the stories are well written and the chemistry between the two characters, George and Nico, is fantastic. I recommend these games to anyone whose interested in buying a good old game that involves adventure. But I must also say that the game is very addictive. Once you start, you can't stop until it ends.

Classic 2D adventuring at its best. The story line sustaines your interest, and is sufficiently varied not to pall. Very good value.
