+ Better characters, dialog and story compared to first 2 games.
+ Character animations aint too bad for the time.
- Bad controls and bad fixed camera angles
- Stupid action bits.
- Tedious box pushing puzzles that are more of a chore than anything else
Broken Sword 3 isn't too bad. It's quite tedious to play at times though. Fixed camera angles coupled with the way controls work will trip you up at times. Say you are moving up with the up arrow key and the camera angle switches 180 degrees. If you had never let go of the up button you will continue moving up but if you let go and press down you will move down instead. Thinking more on it this is actually good system to have in place since if it wasn't there your character would never be able to walk a straight line with all the camera angle changes but it's still not a good enough control system to make the fixed camera angles excusable. Fixed camera angles and 3D games don't go togather well.
And the tedious box pushing puzzles that aren't puzzles really they are just there to pad this game. Seriously, if there was no box pushing puzzles involved I would say it would take 2/3 less time to finish the game.
That said I find the characters and dialog for this game to be much better compared to the first 2. It's the little things that are good. Like the characters having facial mimics while talking, it makes them feel more alive. Makes the delivery of the dialog better.
It's up to you if you want to play it. If you cannot handle the oldschool awful controls, camera angles and tedious puzzle design I suggest you pass it. If you are slightly nostalgic about all this crap though, you'll sort of enjoy this for some reason.
