Broken Sword

I'm playing through 'Broken Sword' right now for the Nintendo DS. I haven't played it ages and even without the voice acting it's retained all of it's charm and depth. This is old school adventure gaming at it's best.

Point and click might not sound like so much fun to the newer generations of game players but it's so not how you might think. Anyone out there who hasn't experienced 'Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis' or 'Day of the Tentacle' needs to go do so right now! This is one of the very best ways to tell a super-detailed story in the game medium. In my opinion it freakin' pwns RPG's.

If you have a DS (it's also out for the Wii), you owe it to yourself to play 'Broken Sword' and experience an art form that has all but disappeared from the landscape.
