Broken Sword 1
on 9 April 2011
I haven't actually completed this game yet and I'm quite new to point and click games such as Broken Sword. It is quite good (and love the old fashioned dialogue!) but I doubt I would get through it without the help of a walkthrough.
Good bits of historical information in it as well.
Games such as this would be better if some kind of help was given to players when they get stuck and can't figure out who it is they have to talk to again or what it is they need to look at that they may have overlooked. It is understandable that the object of the game is to search and find but when intrigue turns to frustration, the game loses its appeal.
Still a good game though, a fun way to spend an hour or so.
