North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtDespite the ominous-sounding title, Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars is actually a colourfully animated adventure game that casts you as an American tourist vacationing in Paris. But don't let cartoonish graphics fool you into thinking this is kiddie fare, as the game opens with a malevolent-looking clown bombing a café where you're sitting, leaving a man dead and many questions unanswered. Fancying himself to be a better detective than the local authorities, your nosy tourist dives headfirst into mystery and intrigue, hot on the trail of the killer clown. Broken Sword uses a basic point-and-click interface, where moving a pointer around various onscreen hot spots allows different actions to be performed. Broken Swordis a great adventure game. Crisp graphics, smooth animation, and brilliant voice acting help further the game's quirky plot and although it doesn't have the laugh-out-loud moments of Monkey Island , this is a classic among adventure games and well worth at trying out on budget.--Lucie Field
