RPGdot has given Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon an overall score of 88% and their RPGDot Gold Award:


"Overall, the game was fun, told a great story and may really be a milestone for coming adventures and a new breed of interactive movies. For the next installment, I wish for a little longer playing time (this one I finished in only 11 hours) and some more classical puzzles (maybe a bit more challenging ones lso). Other than that, Broken Sword 3 was perfect! Congrats, Revolution!"

Award winning composer Inon Zur has created the original music soundtrack for Microid's upcoming adventure Syberia II. The soundtrack will feature melodic inflections of Eastern Europe mingled with indigenous Eastern tribal music, and cradled in an orchestral foundation.

Zur has won awards and critical acclaim for his compositions for such games as Baldur's Gate II: Throne Of Bhaal, and Icewind Dale II. Syberia II is expected for release sometime in March.



Legend Entertainment, a credible industry source has stated, has just been shut down by Atari, its parent corporation. No further details are available at this moment, nor is there an official statement. Legend Entertainment was originally an adventure game developer, known for such titles as The Blackstone Chronicles and Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. Sensing the imminent but gradual wane of the adventure genre, they switched to the 3D engine and the newly unfolding action/adventure genre and churned out acclaimed titles such as Wheel of Time and Unreal II: The Awakening.

We'll keep you posted here at AG on further development of this story.

Jan has obtained a gorgeous piece of new concept art from the upcoming Sam & Max: Freelance Police. It is not an in-game shot per se, but gives us a good idea at how the office of the heroic duo will appear in the finished product. The brand new art celebrates the site's reopening after being down since the fabled server crash of last summer. Welcome back, guys!



Gaming Nexus has reviewed Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon, giving it a score of 8.0.


The voice acting is outstanding. Dialogue is typically forthright when friends are speaking, but our heroes’ interactions with strangers bring about loads of humorous banter. The dry mockery and laugh-out-loud satire had me looking forward to every new conversational topic. I grew disappointed if I was merely handed a significant clue or grandiose piece of the mystery. I was more rewarded in listening to George and Nico’s rapidfire wit throughout the entire script. Even if a character’s voice was annoying it was obvious the writers’ intentions were to grate on some nerves. George and Nico also talk their way through performing standard actions. The acting is so well done that it becomes nice just hearing their voice.
