Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

This game was useless. The combination was too hard to solve. I knew which direction to turn it but manuevering the hand was hard. No matter how I turned the cylinder it would not open. I worked until my wrist hurt.

After playing the game very far in the church you are supposed to highlight Bible verses one of them being Psalms: XXXII XXI but there is only Psalms: XXI on the casket and it will not accept that so you are dead and cannot go any further

This game would be awesome... if it was 1988.

This game is just your old fashion "choose your adventure" book, but worse. It makes you think there are choices, but there really aren't. You move your remote around the screen until the pointer changes, and then you get an object, and then you wander around again until you "do something" with that object. You are pretty much trapped in that part of the game until you figure it out.

The characters are vacant and stereotypical. The conversations you have with other characters in the game are long and extremely boring.

Overall, I couldn't wait to get to the end. I LOVE games like the Myst/Riven series, and thought this might be similar. I was very wrong about that. I'm starting to think that these types of games are best for the computer, not the Wii.
