Summary

More of the same as the first game, but better

The Good

The control method from Broken Sword 1 has been kept, so it is still easy to play, and the addition to play as Nico provides a nice aternative to playing as George now and then. Revolution know how to create adventure games, and this is no exception, in fact it even rivals the adventure games by Lucasarts!

The Bad

The only thing bad about the game was it's ending, unlike in Broken Sword 1 you could not do anything once you reached the final part of the game, which is a bit of a let down.

The Bottom Line

A good alternative to the Lucasarts adventure games and more proof that a sequel can be as good as the original
