Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

April 14th, 2009 by Wii Game Reviews

After witnessing the brutal and horrifying murder of one of Paris’s richest and most influential statesman, the player will be pulled into a sinister conspiracy rooted in a long forgotten medieval legend. New puzzles have been added that specifically utilize Nintendo’s unique stylus control. The game also features stunning animated facial expressions drawn by Dave Gibbons, artistic genius behind the comic book and upcoming movie Watchmen.

Broken Sword, the renowned series by Charles Cecil, makes its way to the Nintendo Wii, and old fans and new players alike won’t be disappointed in this “Director’s Cut” version. The classic adventure game series is brought up to date with a new narrative loosely based on the original and with game play mechanics that take advantage of the unique aspects of the Nintendo Wii.

The original Broken Sword was praised for its engaging story line that kept players guessing what would happen next. This version closely follows the original story but adds an interwoven narrative that serves as a prequel to future games.

Specifically, the game explores the history of the female protagonist Nico, and how her mysterious past connects with the events that are unfolding in the story. All this new material is seamlessly added to the original.

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Features

  • Update to the original adventure game with a new narrative
  • Puzzle-based gameplay takes full advantage of the Wii controls
  • Long, engrossing storyline
  • Graphics and animation done by Dave Gibbon of Watchmen fame
  • Provides foreshadowing and context for later games in the series

Instead of going at it alone, you can also add a second player to the fray in the Wii version. Two cursors show up on the screen, and one player becomes the main player while the second highlights areas of interest on the screen. Working co-operatively adds another dimension to the game and allows the game to be enjoyed simultaneously by two players.
