This is adventure gaming at its very best.

this is a must-play game: a latter day blockbuster in a directors cut form. The Independent online (5/5)

An extraordinary example of how to properly remake a classic. Pocket Gamer (9/10)

Broken Sword's creative touch interface works like a charm on the iPhone screen. Touch Arcade

Broken Sword: Shadow Of The Templars has always been a stellar example of video games' potential as a storytelling medium; now it also serves as a masterclass in porting to a handheld platform. With its glistening presentation, adroit controls and additional content, this is arguably one of the finest titles to appear on the App Store to date. Reforging the Sword on the iPhone was a stroke of genius.

Heard some good impressions on the ds version, exactly how obtuse are the puzzles because I can't deal with a ridiculously hard adventure game.

I've never played this before (on the DS or whatever), but I'll try it out tomorrow when it releases worldwide.

Yeah, I don't like hard puzzles too. Monkey Island is perfect, Myst is too hard (let alone Riven!)

Well, if Beneath a Steel Sky is any guide, then the puzzles shouldn't be too obtuse. They were all very logical, even though I ended up using hints a couple of times, out of sheer impatience.

BTW, unlike the DS version, this one has full voice-over, right?

Are the hints built in? at that point I am cool with it. I just don't want to spend half my time on gamefaqs.
