Summary

Nice Graphics, Good Story Line, Extremely Easy to Finish. Thumbs Up!!!

The Good

The Black Mirror is a traditional third-person adventure. The game places real-time 3D characters onto pre-rendered backgrounds. The game's weather effects are with one word: "UNBELIEVABLE"!!! Almost very scene features details, such as tree branches waving gently in the wind or birds flying in the distance. Reminded me of "Syberia" and "The Longest Journey". Smart dialogues and an unexpected ending!!!

The Bad

I think that the only disadvantage of the game is that it is very easy to conclude. Also there are a couple puzzles in the game that you can't find clues in the game to solve them, but you have to have knowledge of those things. For example in Chapter One, the puzzle with the Globe in the Mansion's Library, where you have to place the planets of our solar system in order, starting with the one closer to the sun.

The Bottom Line

A must have for adventure lovers!!!
