    Potential to be a great gae, but shocking gameplay mechanics have left me stuck after the first section. Knowing what to do is simple, their insitance at using the Wiimote for precise movements make continuation impossible. Such a shame and warning to developers not to force pointless wii mechanics into all games, they n break them.

    Ultimately, there’s a sense that Broken Sword: The Director’s Cut can’t quite reconcile its attempts to incorporate updated gaming sensibilities with its need to maintain the sort of respectful reverence demanded by fans. The result is a game that flounders unevenly between both extremes and never quite gels as an overall experience. However, for all its inconsistencies, Broken Sword is still an undoubted masterclass in videogame storytelling.
  2. Broken Sword turned out to be a pretty decent adventure game that shouldn't be missed by the old and the new fans. The game has everything a good adventure should have and even offers a little bit more. The only thing we can nag about is the lack of extras after waiting almost thirteen years.
  3. This Director's Cut deserved to be spared from patchy audio and shonky cutscenes, but it wasn't. Regardless of this fact, the brilliance of the Templars remains largely undiminished.
