  • Summary: Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - The Director's Cut starts with the player in control of charming Parisian photo-journalist Nicole Collard, who witnesses the brutal and horrifying murder of one of Paris's richest and most influential statesmen. During her investigations, which feature exclusive new locations, Nico meets amiable American George Stobbart, who has been unwittingly caught up in the sinister and bloody theft of an ancient manuscript. Together, they are drawn into a terrifying conspiracy rooted in a long-forgotten medieval legend. Expanding on the original classic storyline, The Director's Cut features tight scripting and an intense atmosphere from the explosive opening sequence to the gripping finale, where the full threat of the conspiracy is revealed.

  1. Pick it up and I think you will soon be drawn into its rich plot, fun characters and puzzles, and great art and soun
  2. Not quite perfect, this Broken Sword: Director’s Cut is still the best port of an adventure game on the DS to date.
  3. Still as delightfully charming and rewarding as it was when it was first released, the Director’s Cut of Broken Sword for the DS will not fail to amuse. If this is your first time playing the game then you will most definitely be surprised by its rich storytelling and fun puzzles. If it isn’t, you’ll be glad you played this one again.
  4. Despite being more than ten years old, Broken Sword is an excellent mystery adventure which will delight genre fans, both those who already knew the series and also newcomers.
  5. I would much rather play an interactive novel than read one, and Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars is a huge step in making that happen.
  6. Broken Sword series shows its beginnings with a remake full of new features and, at the same time, very loyal to the original videogame. Same story, new scenes, identical gameplay and never seen puzzles take a mix in a title suitable for casual and experienced gamers.
  7. Character interaction is the great highlight, weak and wandering pace is the low point.

    I recently played this on the iOS, and was a big fan of the PC versions, so I had to try out every version. While it's not the developer's fault, there is no voice acting. But it is still incredible! Expand
