    Broken Sword for the iPad plays like a full screen PC adventure game. The added screen estate enhances the immersion into the game, and at times the lines between game and book feel blurred.

    It's a lengthy adventure that rewards intellect over firepower, and that's reason enough for me.

    Although the game's still good enough to warrant a purchase if you've never played it before, those of you who've already got the iPhone version have every right to feel a little miffed about the conversion.
