Broken Sword: The Shadow Of The Templars (known as Circle Of Blood in the United States) is a point-and-click adventure game that was first released on PC way back in November 1996. One of the greatest adventure games of all time, it has been re-released many times over the years, including a PlayStation port in December 1996 and a Game Boy Advance port in March 2002. Finally, the game was re-released as a Director’s Cut for Nintendo Wii in March 2009, before finally returning to PC’s everywhere in August 2010. AMO will be focusing on these final two versions of the game for our review, although please note that it is also available, albeit in slightly altered form, for both Nintendo DS and iPhone (iPhone version reviewed here).
