Broken Sword is a Point & Click/Search for Clues type of game genre unlike any I'd ever played before! Although searching for clues by the way of finding certain obsure objetcs certainly isn't anything new. However, it is HOW these objects are found that sets this game apart from the rest.

I felt the game was not too short & didn't drag on either. Some will not like the exessive dialog. I for one, enjoy it as long as they are short, 1 or 2 liners. Broken Sword was not so easy that I was able to complete it within a few hours yet, it wasn't so difficult where I felt I needed a Walkthru nor did I ever want to quit at any point.

The only negative i found was on the HD Kindle Fire...the text used for the deirections & any other information, were extremelt tiny considering I had such a large screen. it would be nice to see ALL of a tablet's s reen utilized in an update.

5.0 out of 5 stars great game October 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
This was a great game. A little different from other point and clicks on Kindle Fire. Reminded me more of "Beneath a Steel Sky" and "Flight of the Amazon Queen". A few crashes here and there, but nothing game breaking. Goes on forever. A good 7 - 8 hours of gameplay. Highly recommended if you've ever played and enjoyed the original point and click adventures (like the ones mentioned above).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic remastered classic for kindle fire February 13, 2013
By raboo
Verified Purchase
I first encountered this game when it came out for PCs years ago, and loved it then for its uniqueness. The Nintendo DS version a couple of years ago made me think the game didn't pass the test of time. But this remastered version for the kindle fire hd has some additional graphics redesign, dialog updates, and changes to overall feel that are better than I remember the original. To put it simply, much much better than the other myst/hidden object/puzzle games I've come across so far for the kindle fire. By the way, I got it for under a dollar, so it's a must buy at that price.

The game is a combination of searching for clues/objects, and interacting with characters in the game. Each character may not have a point towards your end goal, and you can attempt to combine seemingly incongruous objects together, but the always colorful commentary adds depth to the main story. Going through all the quirky dialog may take a couple of days of playing, and may exhaust some players, but will provide a more movie-like feel to the game. If you expect easy answers always (they play upon you thinking you are smarter than the game which makes you try the same approach in different ways several times), or using the hints too much, you will likely miss the depth of the game.

However, I recommend taking your time and savoring the game, as I haven't found anything close to it yet for the kindle fire. Feel free to comment if you think there are other games in this space that are better/comparable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting a (improved) classic September 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
Loved playing this game back in the nineties on the Playstation, and now it's back bigger, (more scenes) and in all it's point and click glory. An American in Paris, a beautiful girl, murder, adventure and the Knights Templar, it's all served up with wonderful humour, and dizzying adventure.
If you remember it from the PS One days, it hasn't aged and you'll love it all over again, if you never knew, do so now, you'll have a kick.

4.0 out of 5 stars i really should be a 5 star buuut.... September 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game really does deserve 5 stars but I just can't!! Too many freezes too many crashes too many glitches .. This game is incredibly long. I am the type of person who will play all day until I beat it. this game took me days! cartoon like graphics is an interesting and refreshing change from the typical CGI you see on everything any more. if I didn't have to shut it off sooooooooo many times I would have given it a 10 star rating.... but.. as it is it was fun and interesting, kept you involved and is like the cooler older brother to all the rest of the hidden object games.

This is the type of point and click adventure I grew up on. The best part....No hidden object which in alot of games the objects have nothing to do with the story line. More Please!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different & Decent December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
This took me 3 days to finish, there's a full story line so you have to listen to the characters. You don't want to skip the dialog because you can't get back to it, so it will take longer for anyone.

I like the graphics, they're different than most games. There is actual character development - not much, but more than most games.

I love the hint system. 3-4 hints available per issue, the first is vague and it gets more pointed as you request more hints. Well done, worth the $4
