4Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse
If you haven’t heard of the Broken Sword series, where have you been for the last 20 years? Starting with Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars way back in 1996, the series has evolved over time, culminating in a return to classic 2D form with The Serpent’s Curse.
The unforgettable duo George Stobbart and Nico Collard are back with another deep and intriguing mystery to get themselves involved with. It’s as captivating as ever. And like every other Broken Sword game before it, it’s George and Nico that make this game. George’s innate Americanisms contrast beautifully against Nico’s sarcastic French demeanour. It’s impossible not to get completely engulfed into their relationship and the story that plays out on screen.
So The Serpent’s Curse might not be quite as memorable as the classics from the 90s, but for any Broken Sword fan, it’s one of the best point and click games on Nintendo Switch.
