Just Adventure by Ray Ivey
"Cecil and his team have done a wonderful job of
bringing the feeling of a Broken Sword game into this new 3D environment. The
handy third dimension actually opens up many possibilities for puzzles that
would have been difficult or impossible in a 2D game. Many of the puzzles have
to do with using and manipulating objects to gain access. So theres rock
climbing, rail hanging, ledge crawling, etc. Let me emphasize that at no time
does this kind of puzzle make the game feel like an action/adventure or even a
platformer. The controls are very tight and specific its about
choosing the climb up or climb down action icon, not
about running and jumping a la Tomb Raider."
"Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon is a triumph. Its
at the same time a real 3D game and a crackerjack pure adventure. High levels
of craftsmanship and designer TLC are evident throughout the game. Playing it
is like falling into an exciting movie thriller. This game is recommended for
anyone, and for adventure lovers its absolutely not to be missed."
