  1. A stunning achievement in interactive entertainment. With a solid story, engaging characters, stunning visuals, and delightful dialogue, this is one adventure you simply won’t be able to tear yourself away from.
  2. Its humorous, has a good plot, a good mix of different characters and is just a fun game. So sit down, relax and enjoy the game just try not to pull your hair out from the puzzles.
  3. A fairytale comeback. Extravagance was one of the signatures of the graphic adventure: extravagance to bring them in, and a cracking story well told to keep them. Both tenets of the Broken Sword series remain intact here, and that's all the devoted fans could have wanted. [Christmas 2003, p.94]
  4. A new classic of the adventure genre. It looks unique, sounds excellent and has a plot with more twists and turns than a break-dancer in a tornado.

    What this game needs is more doors. Locked ones. That can never be opened. Yeah, it needs more doors. And puzzles involving finding new ways to open said doors. I won't be happy until there are more doors in the game than homebase. ... Shame on you Edge ... Full Review »

    Another flawed XBOX conversion, avoid or buy on the PC, the game is very glitchy and bugged, this was confirmed by 3 memebers of my local game store. Whoever is doing these XBOX conversions needs to be sacked! Full Review »

    Wasnt sure of the 3-D engine before purchase, but the transition from 2-D to 3-D really works!
