Worst review ever!!! Broken Sword 2 wasn’t so good as the first one but if we compare Broken Sword 2 with Broken Sword 4 which was the worst of the series, you’ll notice that this review is so childish….

Episodes gets shorter and more simplified each time. IMO, despite being a good story as it is, the way too long wait and way too short unrolling of am interacive film needs a good criticism.

I just played the demo and loved it. I adore all the Blackwell games, think they are really interesting, a great storyline. They are highly addictive, intelligent and the game play is not ridiculously hard but not stupidly easy either.

For the record, Rosa isn’t my favorite character, and I actually preferred Lauren Blackwell, from Blackwell Unbound. I thought she was a lot more intriguing than Rosa even though she’s only been in one game. Darker, with a better voice, and a great chemistry with Joey. Rosa has always seemed a bit whiny to me. But ... well, I like the story itself anyway.

So sad to see such a great series end.

Good review. I had the same problems with this game. Story wise it’s the least good of the series.
To answer Guran 75: the ones I liked best were Time Stand Still, Amber’s Blood and Cold Case Summer.

I enjoyed ME 3 ending thoroughly. Those who criticized were just entitled whiners who forgot a destined set ending (or in ME 3’s case, 3 endings) was still required for the completion of a coherent narrative.

Can’t wait to go through the stories with Zoe again. I couldn’t really relate to April, though TLJ: Home is an awesome idea. Will definitely back that too.

Oscar & other CR fans: Which game in the series would you recommend for a newcomer?

The plot is paper thin and I never really understood why Carol would be so interested in solving this “case” to begin with. I’ve played every Carol Reed game so far and have always found them strangely appealing, if not always “good” in the more strict sense. This game is not among the better ones in the series. Two stars from me.

Interesting to hear a newcomer’s views on the series - thank you! Like you I enjoyed it (as always) but found it a weaker CR game, comparatively.

I think the series faces a dilemma - the formula needs a shake-up but in doing so risks alienating its loyal fanbase. Maybe get away from Norrköping for a while? We’ve seen the whole town now multiple times and it’s a bit disconcerting to see new locations described as “it’s near the national park” popping up in the middle of the city.

It all depends on whether CR wants to move from a reliable “above-average” yearly production to a higher level, which might not be possible on a yearly schedule and low budget. I don’t think it does, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. At least it’s better than Nancy Drew.

I’m a big fan of telltale games, and this looks promising. However, I haven’t played the borderland games and I have no interest in doing so. I wonder how much of a story introduction there will be for players of this title as a stand-alone. Or maybe I should skip this one, I don’t know.

Just finished GK2 and starting GK1 now that I have some time. I think my favorite would still have to be GK3, sometimes when I’m bored I can spend hours just touring around the south of France, even if I’m not accomplishing anything. On a sidenote, If they ever remade GK2, I only hope they tone down the shrewishness of Grace, that’s like the #1 reason I don’t like playing it. Oh, and I hope to god in this one they have made the zombie maze easier, that thing took me like 2 hours to get thru.

“The end of the journey’s the same, but the way you get there, the characters who will be with you, the relationships you’ll have, what happens to you getting there—those will change. We want players to be able to shape the journey, but everything is destined. It is a game about destiny, after all.”

Oh wow, this raises my alarm bells, remembering how bad that an idea turned out in Mass Effect 3 and the backlash it caused.

Just FYI, Jane has already explicitly stated (in a recent interview) that remakes of GK2 and 3 won’t happen, as she feels the games would need to be too thoroughly redesigned from the ground up to make them work in the format of the GK1 remake.

Which is too bad, because they both have particularly obnoxious presentation/interface issues, but totally understandable from a development standpoint.

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a meet & greet that Phoenix Online did during the GDC and I got to play a little bit of this. As it’s my all-time favorite adventure game, the prospect of an expanded version is especially exciting and I’m really looking forward to discovering the new surprises and additions that are going into the game. The prospect of a new Gabriel Knight game has never seemed so possible before, and now that it is, I want to do anything I can to spread the word and help make this anniversary edition of GK1 as big a success as it deserves to be.
