Broken Sword deemed too slow

Better late than never at all, some would say. Never at all, in this case.

Gaming Horizon took their head out of their big pile of action frenzied games to play and review Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. Apparently, the reviewer is either not a big fan of adventures or has never played one.

Do I have to tell you what the verdict of playing this game is? Stay away, for the love of God, stay away. If you actually like adventure games like this – why? I think this genre should be put to sleep like the dying dog it is. Where’s the fast paced action that we crave these days?

It's right there in that pile of action game released the last few days. I'm surprised he even noticed Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon.

There is no real challenge. All you have to do to beat the game is walk around and look for things on the screen to have a twinkle appear on them. Where’s the challenge in that? Would you like to know the only time I felt challenged? Well, it had entirely to do with the brightness of the game being turned down and the fact that I couldn’t see where I needed to walk to get out of a cave. That was my only challenge.

The game receives a score of 4.8 out of 10, where graphics and humor are deemed the only good things about it, whereas the gameplay is "Slow, Slow, Slow, but amusing."

Read the full review here, for more thoughts of an action gamer lost in a world completely unknown to him.
