An excellent Adventure game, I would say its one of the many that could compete with the old classic adventure games like king's quest. The voice acting is always good, and it has a really easy learning curve, except fo the puzzles of course. Another great thing about these games is that they are usually low spec, and can virtually run on any machine, so everyone gets to enjoy the adventure in its full glory. There might be some cheezy bits in the game but its still enjoyable. If you are a fan of the broken sword series, this game is a must to add to your collection.

This game is frikken awesome!!!! If you are a Broken Sword fan this is even better than the last – the graphics have been majorly upgraded, although it was a bit disappointing that the characters from the last two games now look different; but still the same great dry humour. The storyline was waaay over the top – I loved it!!! And the game overall is much more engaging. It's nice and long, and pure entertainment the whole way.
Quite honestly this is the best game I've ever played. It's voice acting and script is superb and it's puzzles are doable without being too easy. The graphics aren't as good as Syberia (whose is?) with a slight suggestion of blockiness, but the character movement is smooth as silk and it runs without a suggestion of a hitch. It's funny, with the characters believable as actual humans. There are a few time-oriented action puzzles included which I don't normally enjoy (I have the reflexes of a sloth) but they fit into the story and add some adrenaline to the game. Length is excellent – you won't be able to finish this one over the weekend like some games. It's keyboard operated which I don't normally like, but its simplicity and use of twinkly stars to indicate something usable are excellent – no more point-and-click pixel-hunting which is a joy! Can't wait until the next one out in September. I've already pre-ordered my copy!
