IGN: Broken Sword: The Director's Cut DS Review

Playing Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars -- The Director's Cut, it's easy to see how it garnered a cult following 13 years ago. The story and characters are engaging, and the animation system makes for a unique, cartoon-like experience. New story chapters provide a reason for Broken Sword vets to give the game another go, but the touch interface isn't perfect. It doesn't provide anything new in terms of point-and-click gameplay, and the slow pace of these games doesn't appeal to everyone. It definitely feels like a relic from another time -- it's not an exercise in violence, a mini-game collection, or a licensed music effort. But Broken Sword is a solid point-and-click mystery that is a welcome addition to the DS library.
