This Game is Incredible.

This software is absolutely Incredible!
I've been an Adventure Gamer since the origional Zork series and Black Mirror II is like putting on a warm coat. Just to be clear, it's not a disk filled with complicated puzzles that usually make absolutely no sense at all. It truly immerses you deeply into a story. There is A LOT of dialoge that some don't like because they say that it drags the game on. I think they are wrong. I think it is part of the magic that pulls you into the story. It's not long into the game that you begin to feel like you are part of a movie and you are the main character. This game actually brings out emotions in you and I didn't feel like just an analitical machine going through the paces.(The writers should be commended)
They story flows true and I can't remember feeling like anything was ridicilous. (Like what happens in MOST of the adventure games I have purchased in the past)
There are some programming mistakes, (like you can't use one piece of hose until Both pieces are found, etc) but overall this isn't really a problem at all and are only minor distractions in the otherwise fine work.
Everything is controled with the mouse so you don't have to fool with the keyboard at all (great!) You don't have to put the disk in every time you want to play (EXCELLENT!)
Make sure your machine meets the needed requirements, wait until you have some alone time, turn down all the lights, put your headphones on, and get ready for a ride WELL Worth The Price of admission.
I'm almost finished II and can't believe that I still have III to come! As far as adventure games go, this was one of the best purchases I've made in a while.
Started Black Mirror III and everything was great until I hit the MENHIRS (no need to know what they are). Then the game started to remind me of what went wrong with Adventure Games.
I'm still trudging on but..........I still think that Black Mirror II was well worth the purchase (I really enjoyed that adventure!)
