  17. 17. I was wondering if people that have played Broken Sword 4, and wanted the game to be in 2D, still wants the series in 2D. So if there would be a Broken Sword 5, would you want it to return to 2D? I say no, because, I thought that Broken Sword 3 had nice, but a little too edgy graphics, but the graphics in the fourth has been much more polished and it has evolved. So if there would be a 5th I would like to see it in 3D. 2D all the way ! Which unfortunately isn't going to happen I think it could happen. The handheld market, particularly the Nintendo DS, is really open to 2D point-and-click games. There have been four popular 2D point-and-click adventure games on the Nintendo DS that I can name, and maybe a few others as well.
  18. 18. They should return to the bright colors and cartoonish look of Broken Sword 3. Broken sword 3 Should be erased from all our memories … Well, that’s your opinion. Many people liked BS3 and one of them is me. Yeah man, Broken Sword 3 is an absolutely brilliant game and should not be forgotten. I have to say that I liked both games, can't say which one I liked most though, and I still haven't finished BS4...
