Hey, this looks nice. Will either pick it up if it's on sale on Steam over the Holidays or in spring when part two is out. Several reviews pointing out that overall quality of this game hinges greatly on part two that is yet to come, so there is no rush to buy now.

I've just finished the first chapter of this, and have been an avid fan of the previous games. I have to say the art work in this is absolutely stunning, and the plot and story line are very interesting.

However, on the downside, the game is very linear. I feel it started off ok, but towards to end of the game became too simple and obvious. The old broken sword games allowed us to die and make mistakes. This doesn't seem apparent any more!
