Graphics: 4/5 Very beautiful and detailed. This is the game's strongpoint, but the backgrounds are so vivid and alive that the characters seems dead textured and stiff against the backdrop. Many odd angles and Darren often talks with his back to the player (probably to save money on synching mouth animation for different languages). The cutscenes play without any bugs, but the animation in them is more fluid and lifelike than what you get in the regular scenes
Sound: 5/5 The background noise is appropriate for each scene and the music changes with the correct mood. Tense when supposed to be tense, rain sounds like rain etc. The ambient noise is actually quite nice and it immerses you into the game.
Voice: 3/5 Darren's New Jersey accent may grate your nerves at first, but it kind of grows on you after awhile. Other characters (especially the postal lady and the hotel managers) you want to strangle as part of some much needed mini-game.
Gameplay: 4/5 The puzzles are a mixture of insanely (almost venturing on lazy) easy to difficult (the finale puzzle). There are many inventory, one slider and several logic puzzles. None are walkthrough worthy. This game is quite long and apart from the "40 locations" listed on the box, you really just spend time in Biddeford, Maine, Willow Creek, somewhere in Wales and Black Mirror Castle.Read more ›
The music, atmosphere and graphics were great. The voice acting was pretty good, although the creators did have some unusual concepts of accents.
However, the best part about it was that it was very long (many hours of gameplay) but without feeling like it dragged on. Rather, there were more and more things you needed to do, ranging from the mundane to the mysterious. Many of of the puzzles were inventory based, but there were also other kinds of puzzles.
There were many characters who were complete and well created, and the game really felt in many ways quite realistic.
Darren's sarcasm was, for the most part, quite amusing and refreshing, although occaisonally it did get annoying.
Despite being a "horror-type" game, it was really not horror. It was creepy but not really scary, which is quite to our taste. If you prefer something that will really keep you on the edge of your seat, look elsewhere (say, in any given Jonathan Boakes game).
The only real critique we have is that, like most of these games, the ending was a little unsatisfying. But then, it immediately left us wanting to play Black Mirror 3, which was probably the point.
We have nothing to say about the controls, which is a good sign. It means there was nothing about them that made us notice them beyond basic functionality.
So, overall, really one of the best adventure games we've played in a long time. We highly recommend it. But go ahead and buy 3 as well, because when you finish 2, you'll want to play it.
Overall, I would highly recommend this game if you are looking for a traditional, point-and-click third-person adventure game.
I've played all 3 Black Mirror games and they all have the same flaws.
#1 The games are far too linear. It's not enough to know what you need to do and how to go about it, you also need to figure out what exactly will trigger your ability to move forward. Sometimes it's something as simple as clicking on an object or place one or two more times to elicit a comment or more info. This can get very frustrating at times and makes the game seem rote.
#2 Sometimes, the dialogue takes over and leaves you a bystander instead of a participant. When it goes on long enough, my mind wanders and the game mood is lost. Dialogue is fine for information. But it needs to be pertinent and limited.
Finally, I've never been able to make the main character walk quickly. He hobbles along like he has bad knees and double click does nothing. I do appreciate the map where I can move him from place to place because if he had to walk there I doubt I would have lasted through 3 games.
But there's a lot of good. The graphics are incredibly detailed and atmospheric. The storyline is interesting and the voice acting is pretty good. The puzzles are many, unique and challenging.
Definitely worth playing.
