And yes - I can be quite demanding at times... the truth is, that this is by far the best freeware game that I have ever played - (Until I'm Gone is still yet to come...) But seriously - I did't mean to offend the makers of this game, far from it - in fact, I truly think, that this does a great honour to Broken Sword 1 & 2 - and that's lot said, because they are amongst the very best computer games in the world.

Fugly cut-scene animations...

Otherwise it's a quite nice game actually. They've really captured the style and mood from the original games IMO. Looking forward to English voices...

I'm pleasently surprised Revolution allowed this game to be completed and released. Any ETA on the English voice work?

I've just finished the game on vista and i can say i loved it. I've een waiting for 7 years now from when i first heard aout it and i can't believe how well it has been made it is so close to that of the first 2 games. The music was fitting for the mood and the character design was impressive for a underground game. Revolution shouldmaybe employ these guys and girls to work on a decent sequal to number 4.

To get the game to work on vista just bring the resolution right down to minimum that seems to work. im useing a dell inspiron 1525 with integrated graphics and it works just fine.

Looks great I keep trying to download it but after a quarter of the download it slows to a halt I don't know why has anyone got a decent download link I've tried so many from the site.

Also does it start in english subtitles as I can't read a word of german and would find it hard to set the to english on a menu etc lol

I totally love this game, I play the german version with subtitles. I don't understand german but it definitely wasn't an impediment to play it and have a great time.

Definitely the creators have put a great deal of effort in the game. I played it a few months back when it was released, and i've been a constant visitor to their site for years before even the demo came out.

The game just takes you back in the good old days when adventures ruled the PC. I was 15 when i got BS1 and i loved it. This game just brought the feeling back after years and years.

Brilliant graphics, great puzzles - A+ game.

really not feelin the storyline to this seems ridiculous lol, it's nice to play but the cutscenes end randomly and don't seem to make sense. considering they spent years on this game it could have been thought out a bit better, I mean
Spoiler:
khans alive and he was apparently a hitman with blanks in his gun :S
seems kinda silly to me...

No offence to the makers but I really don't understand why they would make such a great looking game with such a terrible storyline it's a shame imho.

Default crashes at the menu

Hi I've just dowloaded this game onto my laptop which is windows vista and everytime I try to load it it stops at the menu and goes back to the desktop saying 'bsengine.exe has stopped working'. Anyone know how to fix this?

Default broken sword 2.5

I have started playing this game and so far I am impressed.

I wish there was more games like this out there. Many new adventure games loose the plot with too much 3d but this one is a classic!

Will play on slowly and hope that english voices will still be released really soon. I would have paid for this game...gladly.

Graphics look awesome and music is fantastic.

I assume you're having an onboard graphic card on laptop?
While using an onboard graphics card on laptop or on desktop isn't recommened! Most onboard AGP graphics card have no more 2 or 4 meg (vram)

I am using the following and is everything is working:

Window Vista
Pentium 4
Nvidia Geforce 95GT 1 gig

In closing, I recommend purchasing a separate AGP or AGP express graphic card (512 meg) including downloading the following updates:

- Windows XP or Vista
- DirectX 10
- Graphic card latest firmware update

Be sure to run DirectX troubleshooting

olomaster, thanks for the news! I've played the german-voiced version already, however, I just prefer english-voiced games (no offence), despite the fact that I speak german rather good. I must say that the game itself left me pretty dissapointed, but like always, I'm willing to give it a second chance. In any case, I certainly appreciate the effort of the people behind this project.

Ha! It finaly here!

downloaded and playing the game! Great works after all those years!

Warning:
Those who extract patch file, some windows version might not allow to extract file into game's directory due to security problems.

However, there's a way to do so:

Simply extract eveything into a seperate directory and copy/paste into game's directory!
Be sure to overright everything when asked. It works on my system.

Again thank you for all your work in getting english version in!
