Black Mirror (The) by gatorlaw

8 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Black Mirror An Ominous Turn of Events… You see a dark foreboding castle, cloaked in darkness and the pouring rain.  As lightening flashes and thunder rolls, we move towards a tower with candlelight shining through its windows. Entering the dim lit room, we see an old man come in, clutching a massive candlestick. He places his candlestick down upon an old roll top desk and takes up his pen. He is writing to his Grandson, Samuel Gordon.

  • 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. Retailing now under the price tag of $15-$20 dollars, you can get your money’s worth out of it.

  • 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. This could have been a classic, but unfortunately is a game that will sit on my shelf waiting for the occasional replay.

  • Excerpt: In The Black Mirror , you take on the role of Samuel Gordon. When your grandfather mysteriously dies one night, you come back home to the Black Mirror manor for the funeral -- plus to find out what’s going on. Soon enough other people start to die, you begin experiencing severe headaches and bad dreams, and you learn that a curse was placed on your family over 500 years previously. The story of The Black Mirror works pretty well. In fact, it’s the best part of the game.

  • Excerpt: My mind must’ve been wandering. For some reason, it’s very difficult for me to concentrate on any form of steady conversation after playing an adventure game of any type. Anyone who’s played one knows the art of patience that goes into the meandering quests of discovery, usually rooted in different screen locations (commonly less than fifteen in number at any given time), and the trenches of wear eroded by the main character’s boots as they walk from place to place and...

Black Mirror, The

  • 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. Таинственное поместье в английской глуши, древний род со своими скелетами в шкафу, кровавые убийства, мистика и гнетущая атмосфера — любители хороших детективов оказались просто на седьмом небе от счастья… И едва...
  • Pros: логичные задачки; море ностальгии; захватывающий сюжет.
  • Cons: загадки немного стандартны.

Black Mirror: Der dunkle Spiegel der Seele

pcspielemagazin.de
1 October 2007
  • Summary: "Black Mirror – Der dunkle Spiegel der Seele" bietet soweit alles was das anspruchsvolle Adventure-Herz begehrt: eine spannende Story mit Mystery-Touch, sehr gute Dialoge mit Topsprechern, abwechslungsreiche Rätselkost und nicht zuletzt schön designte Levelarchitektur inklusive ausgezeichneter Soundkulisse. Warum es letzten Endes doch nicht zur Topwertung reicht, liegt am zu linear gestalteten Spielverlauf und der unsinnigen Rechtsklick-Option.
