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

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.

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 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.

After The Book of Unwritten Tales series, Black Mirror feels like a clear step back for the developer King Art Games.

While Black Mirror manages to get some things right with horror atmosphere and great exploration of the setting, it fails to achieve success on almost every other front. Between the poor writing, average voice acting, the low-quality lighting and camera, and the god-awful performance, Black Mirror is a game that offers you little for what you pay. I would recommend missing out on it until KING Art releases an optimization patch — if they do so.

The Black Mirror is ripe for being that classic creepy haunted manor mystery type setting, but everything surrounding its tale makes it hard to get pulled into and constantly pulls players out of the experience with its follies. This mirror is still worth looking into, but its cracks definitely show.

Black Mirror will leave you feeling a bit torn. It's a good story told in a good location, accompanied by an ideal soundtrack. The fact that it is carrying on with the same family from the original games is the icing on the cake. Sadly, it is let down by too many problems, including annoying movement and camera tracking, poor facial character designs and other issues that mount up to make the game more of a struggle than it should be.

We really wanted to like Black Mirror more than we did, but a few too many technical hitches put a cap on our enjoyment. This mystery is absolutely one worth solving thanks to the captivating plot and engaging characters, but be prepared to wrestle with poor controls, glitches, and frequent load times.

KING Art's take on the series was supposed to introduce it to a new generation of fans, but as things stand, it would be better for those interested in getting the older Black Mirror games, as the reboot is marred by a variety of issues that prevent from being a memorable experience. There is a decent adventure game beneath the mediocre writing, bland characters, and technical issues, but it would be better to look elsewhere if one is looking for a masterpiece.
