    I'm getting this tomorrow and it deserves it's own threads for opinoins, hints, tips and the like. After Krudster's review it seems like they've adressed most people's concerns so maybe even Lou and Pike might be tempted?

    I'm buying it blind as I haven't played the demo. Has anyone who's played the demo got anything positive or negative to say about it?

    I'll post again when I've got a few hours under my belt.

    Nah, still uninterested. If I wanted a point and click mystery I'd opt for Secret Files: Tunguska instead.

    This you mean? Yes, sounds good. There's a delay in the UK though.

    Played the demo, found the camera to be a bit... "stiff" Especially when using PnC. It felt like they couldn't work out if they wanted to go fully down either the PnC or keypad/gamepad route. Apart from that the voice acting was great (as usual) and the puzzles were great. Looks swish with the settings up too. If only the camera wasn't so unwieldy.

    I feel I should really give this a try as it was developed in my home town.

    On the other hand ... it's an adventure game. :/

    That's the one. Me and UncleLou made some comments about it here. Neither of us where all that enthusiastic, but it is a slick product. The interface was really great. If you like the BS games it should be right up your alley.

    A miniscule bumpage for the weekday crowd. :)

    I'll be getting bogged down later tonight. Anyone else played/playing this?

    I downloaded the demo last night, so I'll give that a whirl.

    I was enjoying it up until I got completely stuck on one of the damn hacking puzzles. This years crates.

    Just got Broken Sword. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with an ATI Radeon X600 Graphics card. I have installed the game and Direct X 9.0 but when I try to start the game an error message comes up saying ‘There was an error starting Direct X’ hopefully you can help.

    Broken Sword, the original one?
    hmm, should work no bother, try Start -> Run -> dxdiag and see if your dx install is good. Try installing dx9c too.
