Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse
game brief: Playing as intrepid American George Stobbart and sassy French journalist Nico Collard, you find yourself on the trail of a stolen painting – and a murderous conspiracy. A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word. Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humour - can George and Nico save mankind from disaster? (official site)

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers®

summary: The series makes a welcome return to its traditional roots with a rousing opening installment, but slices the fifth adventure into two distinct parts.

note: This article is based on the complete first episode. A final graded review will be published when the second half of the game is released.
