Sanuku, if you want to fix this up, I don't know how to make an NZ thread like you. Although I might be able to get some of the screenshots.

Love these games!

It's a shame some of the others never came to ipad.

Definitely day 1 for me. Any ideas how long before the IAP with the concluding part?

Yeah. Planning to get this and Final Fantasy VI. Hopefully the $25 card I already have is enough for both.

IIRC, pocketgamer wasn't too thrilled with this.

Metacritic's score is above average:

But I think the hardcore Broken Sword fans were disappointed by it.

I've been waiting for this for a long time, but my, that file size is huge, and this is only part 1 of 2.

I need to clear space on my device before hitting that buy button

Best release tonight for me, apart from FFVI that is. Been a big fan of this series from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed this one when I played it on the PC.

If you're a fan of point & click games, I'd highly recommend this one.
