    Review Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - The Director’s Cut

    Murder, mystery and… Clowns?

    It is a terrible mistake to call Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars a simple port seeing as it’s a game that has more added material than Nintendo have fanboys. Yet there is some basis to the claim; this game has been released on a handheld before. Originally brought to Nintendo through the GBA, Broken Sword was undeniably a classic in its time. But why would you..

About The Game

Broken Sword®: The Shadow of the Templars – Director’s Cut for the Nintendo DS system builds on the original, boasting a new and explosive narrative interwoven with the first story.

After witnessing the brutal and horrifying murder of one of Paris’s richest and most influential statesman, the player will be pulled into a sinister conspiracy rooted in a long forgotten medieval legend.

New puzzles have been added that specifically utilise Nintendo's unique stylus control. The game also features stunning animated facial expressions drawn by Dave Gibbons, artistic genius behind the comic book and upcoming movie Watchmen.
