I bought Broken Sword after reading about how it was such a good adventure game -- I thought that my girlfriend and I could play it together.  Well, I really should have gotten the PC version!

The XBox version is terrible!  The load times are super long, textures frequently don't load correctly (leaving 'blank' black characters walking around, the spoken dialogue overlaps itself when it loads too slowly (about 1/3 of the time), and did I mention that the load times are long??  Several times I have been playing, and fallen asleep during a load screen, only to wake up and find that it is still loading!  Terrible!  Ack!

If you get this game, get the PC version.  I'm going to run out and get the PC version soon.

Good news and bad news.

Good news the PC version is now on $20

Bad news it controls like a pig with the default keyboard control, and you can't skip the cutscenes (I don't think you could on the xbox either but it feels more noticable on the PC because we expect it!)

I'm stalled about halfway through.  I couldn't take those load times anymore.  I could feel hours of my life ticking by that were spent doing nothing but looking at a load screen.   That was a game killer for me.
