I've only played the first two games in the series back in the late 90s and now I'm playing through the Director's Cut of the first game, Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars.

Puzzle games and point and click adventures were never my favourite games but there is something about this series that make it really special.

Anyway I'm enjoying the new beginning, the humour and the music. It feels great to play such an outstanding title once again. Smile

I never played the series. Is this a remake of the game or just an old game you are re-playing?

It's the old game with a few more scenes and some extra pictures and details. It looks a lot like an interactive cartoon and the puzzles are simply awesome and the humour is great.

Besides the game dates back to 96 so it was before the Da Vinci Code fad.

All in all I'm surprised to see that the game doesn't look bad on a current computer with a much higher screen resolution.

I first played the game in French and I can still remember some of the lines. The English version isn't bad but the French voice over was really cool (something that is rather uncommon and worth mentioning).

As far as I can see the only problem is that it may be difficult to spot the details in the game if you have a poor eyesight. Other than that I can but recommend this game to anyone who wants a clever distraction with a very compelling story.

My new glasses are helping a lot but there is nothing that can be done to improve the contrast which does cause me problems. Can you put up some screenshots or a video? Maybe a link to where the game forum is? Lazy me I could run a search myself.

Here you go, a video of the beginning of the game:

Spoiler:
 

If you can see the details in the environment then it should be fine. The game is really fun, it will keep a player busy for many hours (provided there is no walkthrough at hand) and it is cheap.
