[Review Revisited] Broken Age
Two People in two completely different worlds, yet their paths are remarkably similar. Join them on this journey of discovery of their worlds and discover the Broken Age. Are you ready to read our Broken Age Review?
I love point and click adventures… a lot. I have been a fan for years ever since getting too experienced in Full Throttle on the PC back in the day. Over the years I’ve had the luck of to watch the evolution of the point and click adventure game, from Maniac Mansion to The Secret of Monkey Island, to Grim Fandango, The Longest Journey, to all releases from TellTale Games.
We seem to have a resurgence in the old school point and click games with remasters for Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle already here, and with Full Throttle on the way… but we’ve also had some stellar new entries such as Broken Age!
Broken Age tells a wicked story over the course of its two parts with Shay and Vella, both living in worlds they aren’t quite understanding of or at a minimum unwilling to conform with.
You can switch between the two learning more about the parallels in them. The story is great, although the first half is definitely better than the second half. There is also a cliffhanger in the middle that I did not see coming, which is surprising even for me, especially as I knew there was a great twist and was trying to figure it leading up to the reveal.
Broken Age will be a classic adventure game down the line as a bit more time passes. This is your opportunity to play it now and as it’s cross buy you can play it on both Vita and PS4. What are you waiting for?
