  1. As I've stated in the past, I love point-and-click adventures, but Broken Sword, with its engagingly deep storyline, gorgeous art, fun writing, entertaining puzzles and terrific vocal cast, just raised the bar to a level that will be incredibly hard to meet for any game.

Knowing what to do is simple, their insitance at using the Wiimote for precise movements make continuation impossible.

I am about 80% through the game, and the next destination the map is grayed out, and the game is no longer able to continue -- even as the hint system tells that destination is where I need to go, right now. Alas, as mildly entertaining as the game was, I refuse to restart the game from scratch. The presentation of the original portion of the game is clearly dated, and the newly added portion of the game is very brief and inconsequential to the plot. There aren't too many point-and-click adventure games on the Wii, though, so this Wii port may be your cup-of-tea if you enjoy the genre. The hint system helps move it along if the you miss one of several easily overlooked items, even though walkthroughs can be found easily on the web for this old game. Lastly, this is one of the many games that annoyingly do not take up the entire 16x9 display area. Full Review »
