this 4th installment of the broken sword series is extremely redundant. the plot is just a weak iteration of the most common stuff you find in the adventure genre. but more particularly, so many of the locations and puzzles are far too reminiscent of the 3rd broken sword game. it really needed more uniqueness just to warrant its existence. the convoluted plot and drab secondary characters are also the worst the series has put forth. the graphics and puzzles are quite ho-hum. also, without trying i uncovered TWO dead-end bugs throughout the game—one of which made it impossible to complete and i had to watch the ending on a youtube video! hopefully these have subsequently been patched but i was… not happy!! on the positive side, the actual dialogue and voice acting were as good as ever.
