Surprisingly, the relative limitations and idiosyncrasies of Nintendo’s handheld have combined to deliver a Broken Sword experience that shines, in many ways, more so than its console counterpart. Sure, it’s a shame to lose George and Nico’s thoroughly charming vocals but, devoid of distracting technical inconsistencies and offering a game style that’s arguably better suited to the hardware, this DS version of the Director’s Cut is a more consistent, and ultimately, consistently enjoyable package. Compared to the entertaining but stunted GBA outing, it’s a far more faithful experience and Revolution’s expertly-implemented new content serves to accentuate what’s already a masterclass in videogame storytelling. Admittedly, the game’s slow pace and methodical progression won’t appeal to everyone. However, submit to its refreshingly un-condescending whims and it’s easy to get swept away by an experience that still retains its power to surprise and entertain today. It’s smart, cerebral and delightfully infectious – not bad for a 13-year-old game, eh?No, I would not recommend this to a friend

disappointing game.Posted .
I enjoy turn-based games that involved talking to other characters, finding clues and solving puzzles -- this game was short, very easy (and I'm not a skilled gamer), boring and uninspired. The female character was not dynamic and played very little importance -- I wondered why she was introduced at all; the male character was uninteresting and the promise of puzzles that further the game along was lost once he was introduced. Finally, the game was short -- not worth the money or time.No, I would not recommend this to a friend
