A video game collection in blog form… a constant work in progress

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars

Broken Sword Shadow of the Templars Cover

System: PS1

Genre: Point-and-Click Adventure

Release: 1/31/98

Completed: No

Point-and-click (or in this case button-push) adventures have had a soft spot in my heart harkening back to the early PC days when it was the prime gaming genre. Though not uncommon, a few of these PC point-and-click games made the voyage over the sea of technology to the console market, and Broken Sword is chief among them. Revolving around a witness to a crime in Europe, Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars is probably better on the PC where the genre emerged, but the PS1 port seems to be a good game to boot regardless. There’s a sequel on the PS1 as well, and a few more releases in the series, but this one here has been ported to damn near every device imaginable, with the latest being the DS and Wii versions.

Buy this game from Amazon.
