Really Bad

Terrible UI for Wii

This game may be a good one, but who can tell? I gave up after about half an hour because the user interface with the Wii is confusing. Most of the gameplay seems to be about finding items to interact with in the scenes, and I couldn't even see most of the things I had to find -- when I could see them, I couldn't tell if the icons were for them or other things in the scene.

Bad

Not Worthy of the Wii

What can you say about a game that you had to quit because the controls made completing a puzzle impossible.

Even before the game infuriated me due to a clumsy puzzle mechanism, I had grown slightly bored. Its obvious this game was created for a system other than the Wii.

The story may have been great but a game must be playable for it to shine.

If you like point and click adventures maybe this game is for you. I just wanted to make sure you receive the warning that the problems with Broken Sword show up quickly and may ruin your experience.

I just believe the Wii has much more to offer than this revamp of a game from the last generation of technology.

You have been warned.

At first I thought this game would be interesting but after only 5 minutes of playing this game I put it back in the mail... I was falling asleep.
