A worthy sequel to the first Broken Sword, Broken Sword and the Smoking Mirror mantains all the positive aspects from the previous installment on the series and on some cases even improves them. The only con in relation to the first game is the playtime, which I found it shorter by some 3 hours. Anyhow, Broken Sword 2 deals, yet again, with an interesting theme, this time, the Mayans and their myth of the god Tezcatlipoca. It's different from the Templars and in a good way. The graphics and animations are pretty much the same and Broken Sword still can achieve to be a comical game at some stages. The ending was the only aspect I found a bit disappointing, as it looked to be kind of rushed out and after the main enemy had been dealt with... It simply ended. Concluding, if you enjoyed the first Broken Sword - you will most surely enjoy the second one.
PS: Broken Sword 5 is the next game I am gonna play from the series. Through reading some reviews on Broken Sword 3 and 4 I came to the conclusion that they are not worth playing or buying because they diverge from their point&click ancestors. Please let me know if you think they are worth playing, and thanks in advance.
