Review: Broken Sword V: Episode One - Expansive DLC

Graphically, The Serpent’s Curse is absolutely perfect for the genre in 2014. It feels current, fresh and still does a magnificent job of staying anchored to its roots. The characters are very active and alive. Nico will regularly check her phone for messages when she’s standing around, while George’s eyes are everywhere. The rest of the cast are equally observant and alert, mindful of others in their immediate area and the environment at large.

Unfortunately, you’ll find yourself finishing up in an area quicker than you might expect. It’s almost always too obvious what you need to do. Puzzles are almost always solved with an item you’ve just picked up, rather than something you picked up a while back. And despite George’s sizeable inventory, quite a few objects aren’t used for anything in particular. Though I would imagine some of these items will play more of a role in Episode Two. (Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse, PC, PS Vita) 4/5
