‘Broken Sword 2 – the Smoking Mirror: Remastered’ sees the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard in the sequel to the App Store #1 smash hit ‘Broken Sword 1 – Shadow of the Templars: Director's Cut’, widely praised as the best adventure available for iPhone / iPad.

While investigating a ruthless drug gang, journalist Nico Collard unexpectedly comes across an ancient artifact. Little can she know that the ornately carved obsidian stone will lead her, and her adventuring companion George Stobbart, into a mysterious escapade of intrigue and deceit, in which they must overcome powerful forces and antagonists who will stop at nothing to fulfill their evil ambitions.

‘Broken Sword 2 - the Smoking Mirror: Remastered’ is a stunning update to the million-selling original. Along with an exclusive new interactive digital comic, from ‘Watchmen’ co-creator Dave Gibbons, the game boasts fully animated facial expressions, enhanced graphics throughout, high quality music as well as a context-sensitive hint system, and diary. The game also features Dropbox integration which facilitates a unique cross-platform save-game feature, enabling players to enjoy the same adventure simultaneously on multiple devices, full Game Center integration – including in-game achievements – and many other enhancements.

Not nearly as good as the first one.

I really enjoyed the first Broken Sword, but this fell far from the mark for me. There is far less Nico and far too much George; it's entirely linear; and many of the puzzles are so random that I felt like I was just clicking on each thing in turn until the next bizarre thing happened. There are also some puzzles where it's clear what you're trying to achieve overall but you have to pull it off in exactly the correct order and way before the game will allow you to move on. There are so many good reviews on here that maybe it's just me, but it basically wasn't that fun, and the storyline went from incredibly slow (while you trying get through the next door or whatever) to suddenly saying something like "so I got on a plane and went halfway round the world". Just not for me...

First played this game when it was put on a PlayStation demo in the 90s which was just the dock part. I played it over and over until the game was released and have not stopped playing since, I’ve played on PlayStation, PC and iPhone. I will always come back to the Broken Sword series, it’s getting me through this lockdown and hope there are more Broken Swords to come.
