Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror -- Virgin

Hmm... this game isn't at all what I thought it was going to be, but in a good way! And for a graphic adventure I think it rates pretty well. I really liked the "comic book" looking artistic stylings of the characters. The story was pretty good and the puzzles had an extra layer of complexity in that they often require you to do something you wouldn't normally think of with an object in order to activate another object/sequence. I was also pleased to find it wasn't a system killer and allows you to customize the display down if you run an older system. If you're looking for that next graphic adventure to tackle, pick this one.
