Freddy Pharkas also has less dialogue in the talkie version IIRC. I'm not even sure that you can switch the CD version to text-only and see all of the dialogue, it might be cut entirely. I think that...

I can't remember for sure. I am fairly certain I played Broken Sword 1 and maybe 2 without hints, but generally I've looked up a hint at least once for most games.
