Is it really THAT good? Ive been hearing so much positive comments about it and I (frankly) cant wait untill I get it. (ordered it off of aamazon) Is it a serious adventure or a goofy one like MI or Grim Fandango (I know Grim Fandango wasnt really goofy, but it lacked much emotion) so whats the deal with it? Is it really THAT good?

Its a real serious adventure including DEATH. (Meaning you can die.) If you don't do certain things fast enough.

I think so, but it also runs in windows.

I have the original copy in 1998 when it was called Circle of Blood (before they renamed it Broken Sword). I got it in an American computer shop in Las Vegas for 1.60 dollars (1.11).

No, I don't think it does. Apart from Circle of Blood Logo in the game instead of the Broken Sword Logo.

Plus I think its the cheapest game i have ever bought.

You can not Miss out on Broken Sword! It is the best game ever. It is a HELLUVA LOT MORE SERIOUS THAN MI, but it is such an excellently planned game, the puzzles are logical, and you got to a variety of real-life locations.

Broken Sword? Great game. Broken Sword 2 is supposed to be better though.

Yeah, when I first bought that game (i think it was in 1995/6) It also gave me problems. But Virgin sent me a patch in a Disk.
Wow! when did they called that game Circle of Blood?? I never heard that before! it must been in USA. Cuz when it came out it was called Broken Sword.
BS 1 its better than BS 2. I think.
