Broken Sword games It was supposed to have been a relaxing vacation. A trip to Europe to see the beautiful sights and to put things into perspective. That all came to an end when the Parisian cafe George Stobbard was visiting exploded with a thundering roar, nearly killing him in the process.
Now you (as George) are caught in the middle of a mystery that will have you traveling all over Europe to gather clues. Who set the bomb? Why? Are the authorities hiding something? The deeper you probe, the more complicated the story becomes. Broken Sword is an animated adventure that uses a point-and-click interface to perform all actions.
A cursor will change into various icons allowing you to do the following: talk with characters (the arrow switches to a mouth when positioned over an individual); examine objects (the arrow switches to a magnifying glass); use items (switches to gears); pick up objects to add to your inventory (grabbing hand); and exit the scene (a hand pointing to the left or right).
All of the characters you'll meet speak with recorded voices (and optional subtitles) while British composer Barrington Pheloung's musical score plays in the background. Players can also save their game at any time using one block of memory card space, or plug in the PlayStation mouse for easier navigation. Does the game sound familiar? Broken Sword was released on the PC as Circle of Blood.
