100 Word Review - Broken Sword 4

Since it manages to pack in all the worst and best elements of the point & click genre, it's hard to summise my feelings for BS4. The plot is engaging Templarballs, George and Nico make a lovable pair of hapless protagonists (particularly George, who always reacts to danger with good-natured joshing), the controls are intuitive and many of the puzzles are tough-but-satisfying. But progression is frequently blocked by a poorly thought out events tree that has you scouring walkthroughs to find out, for example, how to correctly sign a photograph. Also, too many minor characters are idiots.
