  • Conclusion: Wrap-Up: Black Mirror isn’t the best-crafted adventure game or a well-crafted one either. Despite its old school approach and flaws, the story’s ok and worth seeing through till the end (especially with the work it takes to get there.

  • Conclusion: All in all, this is a good game, but not a great one. It has a lot of promise, but just doesn’t pull through to become what it could have been. It’s a murder mystery with a twist everyone will see coming from a mile away, and the puzzles and slowness don’t do it any service.

  • Summary: Here’s a hint to all adventure game designers out there: When you’re making a game in a genre that relies heavily on good voice acting, well-written dialogue, and strong plot, be completely certain that you actually produce a game with good voice acting, well-written dialogue, and a strong plot.

  • Summary: « Чёрное зеркало » - классическая 2,5D point’n click адвенчура – с потрясающе красивыми фонами и захватывающим сюжетом. Всё остальное является лишь приложением. Довольно неплохим приложением к истории о Сэмюэле Гордоне и мрачном древнем поместье.

Black Mirror 2, The

  • Conclusion: Мы уже привыкли к тому, что когда продолжение какого-либо проекта делают люди, не имеющие отношения к оригиналу, то выходит плохо и печально. Особенно если этот самый оригинал высоко поднял планку качества в жанре. Первая была (да и есть) отличнейшей адвенчурой.
  • Pros: логичные задачки; море ностальгии; захватывающий сюжет.
  • Cons: загадки немного стандартны.
