Broken Sword 4: The Angel of Death

Washed out

Washed out

So frustrating. The 3d graphics in this game are so badly lit and the character controls are so hard to manage that I can hardly play this game. In fact I quit about an hour in. Too bad since I like this series a lot but this is torture.

What worked

Well the same characters are back. Presumably the story will be as good although I didn’t get far enough to appreciate it.

What didn’t work

3d graphics. Such a letdown after the nice hand-drawn backgrounds and animated characters of the previous games. This is really a huge step backwards. And walking this idiot around takes forever and he bumps into little 3d bits and pieces all the time. Total distraction from the gameplay. I can hardly concentrate on the puzzles.
