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.

Black Mirror has an interesting storyline and interesting puzzles, but at the same time game suffers from terrible optimization and lots of flaws. Of course, if you love the "old school stories", you can give the game a chance, but everyone else should pass by.

If you can look past its litany of rough edges, a genuinely enjoyable suspenseful adventure thriller awaits in Black Mirror.

This reboot is a very big fail. The good subject is wasted becouse of a careless and a techincally poor execution. Just buy the original trilogy on GOG.com and live happy.

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.
