Title
A bit mixed experience. Point-and-click adventure games are generally a good thing, and I enjoyed the writing in here, the humorous dialogue and all that...but the actual gameplay occasionally made this a chore with too much "try everything with everything, and when something happens try everything with everything again": this might have been all the rage in 90s but can't say I'm fond of it.
And I would have liked a bit more puzzles that were of not that variety, there were some nice ones in the beginning but they became more scarce (or obvious) as the game progressed.
Still, it was mostly fun and I'll get around to checking more Broken Sword games at some point.
