Despite some decent puzzles, a confusing story and bland characters worsen the experience

Black Mirror is a good story that suffers from a dated application of game styles. While this is interesting in a meta way, it is not much fun to play. The narrative itself plays out fairly successfully. but it is hard to recommend it for this alone. There is definitely space for such old school adventures on modern consoles, but this is not the game to fill it. As it stands, Black Mirror itself is a title haunted by its ancient roots and will horrify the player for all the wrong reasons.

Black Mirror is "13 Dead End Drive" of video games, but with more tension and puzzles to solve. Their lighting, music and sounds are combined correctly to give us the feeling that something is waiting for us. A good recommendation for those who want to have a good time of mystery in the house of the Gordon.

Black Mirror comes back again to the videogame world and brings a great story full of mystery and horror. Although it has some technical issues, these problems do not interfere with the potential of the game.
