Smart, occasionally funny, and immediately charming, Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse is easy to recommend based on its strong narrative, memorable characters, and artistic merit. The game is a vibrant return to form for the series, and should easily please the series' and point-and-click adventure game fans alike. The answers to the most pivotal questions remain on the horizon, but it's still good to see George and Nico back in action--they have been missed.

Despite a rough edge here and there, Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse – Episode 1 sets up an enjoyable reunion between George and Nico. Feel free to jump in even if you’re not familiar with the duo. The more brains we have fixated on this mystery, the better.

Broken Sword's interface was always one of the better examples of ways to interact with an adventure game, so little has changed here; it's simple and intuitive. A solid return to form for a long-running series with a proud heritage -- though right now it's left frustratingly hanging and thus may provide a better experience once it's all wrapped up.
