Neal Chandran: "Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - Director's Cut for the DS is a worthwhile purchase for graphic adventure fans. It reaffirms why I held the game in such high esteem years ago and still consider it one of the finest examples of the genre. Dave Gibbons' freshened artwork and Nicole's story only enhance the Broken Sword mythos fans know and love. The Broken Sword fan in me would like to see Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror remade in this fashion as well since that installment is rare these days. Veterans can enjoy the new content, new players can experience one of the genre's best, and everyone's happy."
