Be prepared to resolve your adventuring dilemmas with "creative" solutions.

For a brief period of time, PC developers started porting their adventure games to the consoles. Besides Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon, it was amazing to see games like Syberia and Indigo Prophecy making it to the X-Box. This particular Broken Sword was a highly anticipated sequel to a high profile PC adventure game and it was the 3rd is the series. Despite the transition to 3D, the game is your typical "point and click" adventure. Those unfamiliar with these kind of games would find Broken Sword laborious because of the stilted action and the heavy focus on storytelling. PC adventure games stopped coming to the consoles though after their very brief showings but with the recently implemented ability to install the full game into the hard drive for the X-Box 360, it's a good time to start that trend again.
