    The puzzles may be simple and sometimes repetitive, but if you enjoy solving puzzles, can appreciate the colorful canvas-like design, and have an open mind for classic point and click gaming with a bit of retro and modern elements, I would say check out Broken Sword 5.

    Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse is a solid little point-and-click adventure that's let down by its clunky controls and its sometimes nonsensical puzzles.

    It's comfy like a pair of old slippers; before you combine them with bagels to make roller-skates, of course. [Nov 2015, p.87]

    Older fans may dislike the way things look but find an overall experience that's more tailored to their likes, whereas newcomers to the genre may love the looks and find themselves lost by the more obtuse puzzles.

    Apparemment, le genre, ce mauvais genre qu'on appelle "jeu d'aventure" s'est tari et ce Baphomet 5 en est le dernier survivant ou presque. EtApparemment, le genre, ce mauvais genre qu'on appelle "jeu d'aventure" s'est tari et ce Baphomet 5 en est le dernier survivant ou presque. Et là, on saute de joie sur son cadavre, on trépigne d'allégresse renouvelée et on hurle à tue-tête "crève, crève, crèèève !!". Oui, j'irai danser sur ta tombe et sur toutes celles de tes pathétiques ancêtres qui remontent aux années 90 !

    Dire que ce truc a même atterri sur console est une hérésie en soi et ses graphismes en 256 couleurs peuvent en témoigner... non mais allo, on est au 21ème siècle quoi... Et le doublage français qui porte toujours autant sur les nerfs, notamment le grand benêt et son accent amerloque ridicule... je dis : stop !

    Stop à ce genre suranné du jeu scripté et linéaire, à ses énigmes idiotes, à son histoire de roman de gare générique et surtout à tous ses personnages imbéciles, ses dialogues pompeux et son humour de fond de poubelle. Il est temps de mettre un terme à la malédiction, celle de tous ces "jeux" d'aventure de merde (pléonasme).
