The gold standard in adventure gaming
If you're a fan of the adventure game genre, and you haven't played the original Broken Sword, Broken Sword: Director's Cut is your chance to catch up with a classic. This edition includes both a remastered version of the 1996 original and the original game itself. If you've played other adventure games, you'll be pretty familiar with how this works: you guide Stobbart through a series of scenes that require him to collect items, interact with characters and solve puzzles. The remastered version includes a new playable character, Nicole Collard, as well as new puzzles and new art by legendary comic artist Dave Gibbons. Broken Sword may look a little dated, even in its remastered version, but age hasn't dulled its intricate storyline, memorable characters or challenging puzzles.
