The original Black Mirror was an interesting bit of classic adventuring, a slow burn through the mysteries of an ancient British castle and its noble line. Personally I loved it but it's a tough sell in the modern era, with some questionable puzzles and practically glacial pace. Black Mirror II needs no such qualifications though, as it builds on the pedigree by improving virtually every part of the formula.

You play Darren Michaels, a young physics major out of Boston who's spending time with his mother in remote Biddeford, Maine. The appearance of a striking young woman in town sets off a chain of grim events that entangles Michael in the mysteries of Black Mirror, a storied castle in the English countryside. There's a lot of ground to cover between Maine and England but it's filled with tantalizing secrets, vicious machinations, and plenty of puzzles to solve.

The gameplay is standard point-and-click gameplay from the classic era, updated for more modern sensibilities. Double-clicking on a point of interest jumps you right to the action, bypassing the slow character plods and sometimes laborious animations. There's a highlight button to see all the interactables in a scene, and a very useful journal that includes optional clues for trickier puzzles. Most importantly, the bizarre left click/right click mechanics of Black Mirror I have been dropped for simple left-click interactions which progress through stages of discovery with every click. Keep this in mind, too... There's one object in the game you have to click five times; the first two clicks get you an item, and the next three reveal a key puzzle.

Your adventure is rendered in sharp detail, with 3D characters superimposed on 2D rendered backgrounds. I generally don't like this style but Black Mirror II has one of the better renditions of it, since the backgrounds almost match the detail of the characters and ONLY the characters are 3D, so no out-of-place polygonal items laying around. Everything is voice acted as well, and outside of some questionable European accents and a few weird word choices it adds greatly to the feel of the game (and can be freely clicked through for the impatient).

That feel of the game is really what helps set Black Mirror apart from other adventures. What I liked about Black Mirror I was the sense of forlorn decay as you plumbed the depths of Gothic ruins. That feeling is still around in II, but is mixed with a lot more detective work and scheming. You were fighting an expression of evil in the first game, whereas here you're contending with conspirators and villains, and the more active antagonism really helps keep the game fresh and engaging. Biddeford, Maine might not seem like an interesting setting at first, but mix in a murder and blackmail and it really starts to grab you.

There's not much negative I can say about the game, outside of Darren. He's an acquired taste to be sure, a hot-headded Boston youth who doesn't shy from getting in people's faces. I found him annoying early on but by the late game he mellows a bit as the stakes become clear. In fact, the overall game really improves as it rolls on, making more and more connections with the first game. That's something I really want to praise, too, how Black Mirror II builds off the first game without making it necessary. You can easily play this installment without having touched the first because Darren learns of the backstory as you do, and prior events are only used as solid world-building for the story told here.

Black Mirror II really took the best parts of Black Mirror I and made a fantastic new experience out of them. The gameplay is more streamlined, the puzzles are more challenging but also clearer, the story builds on the original while standing tall on its own, and the graphics and polish are a huge step up. It's still on the slow burn side of the adventure spectrum but is even more worthwhile than its predecessor. I would absolutely put this one near the top of any adventure or horror list for how well it handles both genres.

This is one of my favorite mystery point-and-click game series. Ever since I played the first game many years ago, I had to play the games that followed it. If you love point-and-click games, then I recommend this game.

*The graphics and audio sounds are splendid.
*A hotspot button that allows you to see what objects you can interact with, if you happen to not find the one you are searching for.
*Subtitles - there is a button that allows you to turn subtitles on in the Options menu.
*Characters with personality - even though some are cliche, they make you want to love or hate them. For instance, I find the main character (Darrin) to be a sarcastic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that makes me laugh at times lol.
*Mystery - Yes, the plot and some scenes are cliche, but there is a mystery that makes you want to continue to find the answers to why and how Darrin is connected to all of this.
*Hints - If you are lost then check your journal for entires telling you what is your current task.

*Some graphic/audio bugs - In some scenes I have had the graphics jump and the audio skip, as if they were having trouble loading. This didn't bother the game itself, but slightly distracting.
*Unrelated information Darrin talks about - Now, this wasn't an issue for me since I enjoy how he gives information about the items and his past. It brings more depth to the story and characters. However, I understand there are some people who dislike unrelated information he talks about when you click on an item.

This is my thoughts so far on the game, but I'll update my reivew more once I finish the game.

Worth the money, in my opinion.

+ Interesting, deep storyline.
+ Many puzzles and lots of interaction, which provide a good challenge.
+ An amusing, entertaining protagonist. I really got into the character whilst playing this game.
+ Voice acting is not dull, and actually pretty good.
+ Character can die, making it different from most point and click games. Remember to save your progress. I think this is a positive personally.
+ You can tell a lot of work has gone into this game, and it shows in the quality.

- As point and click as it gets. If you don't like point and click games, you should probably step away from this. If you're not sure if you like them or not, then I still think this is a worthwhile and fun purchase.
- Although the tabs state that this is a 'horror', it isn't really. More of a mystery, without the typical detective characters.

Black Mirror 2
Rating: 8/10
Overview: Traditional Point and Click Adventure Game

The Good:

+ Rich detailed graphics with a variety of different options

+ Hotspot indicator showcasing which areas on screen can be interacted with. A feature that should be mandatory for any point and click adventure game. This feature alone eliminates a lot of frustration

+ Scroll through your inventory using your middle mouse wheel makes it very easy to see which inventory items work with different hotspot areas within each location.

+ The traditional point and click puzzles are really well done if not a bit on the easy side but fit nicely with the overall theme of the game.

+ Revisiting old locations from the first Black Mirror 1 is really cool, even better is that you see these locations from a different camera angle which offers a fresh new perspective on something familiar.


The Average:

You really need to play Black Mirror 1 to appreciate this game. Although it is by no means a requirement to play this game, it becomes harder to care about the story or characters if you never played the first. The game starts off fairly slow and takes a long while to pick up and get going but it gets more and more interesting the more you play.

Certain static puzzles (slider puzzles, combination lock puzzles etc) could have used better clues to solve them. This only become a problem near the end of the game.

The Bad:

I hated the main character. I hated his accent, I hated the way he looks, I hated the way he spoke to other characters, I hated everything about him. Luckily I could skip his dialogue which helped me immensely.

Sadly I experienced hard freezes in the early parts of the game. Nothing but a hard reset from my computer would fix the problem. It got so bad that I was thinking of quitting the game all together. Luckily it was only happening in the beginning of the game and I was able to get through it.


I gave the first Black Mirror a negative review, this game however fixes a lot of the problems I had with the first game and is a MUCH better experience overall. This turned out to be a very good game the more I played it and was pleasantly surprised how engrossing the story became the further I went along given the slow start. I don't think I would have appreciated the game had I not played the first but sometimes you have to tolerate the bad before you get to the good.

Engaging storyline with some nice twist and turns. It is not so much of a "horror" game but has plenty of dark themes, creepy atmosphere and haunting music. The protagonist is a bit of an irritating brat at the start, but he slowly becomes more sympathetic to other people and thus more relatable at the end. Speaking of the ending, it is more of a "buy the third game to find out what happened!" type of cliffhanger, so be warned.

Great followup to the first Black Mirror which had some serious flaws. It stays true to the original story (the only good part of first game IMO) and expands upon it in an interesting way. Good graphics, really nice enviroments, great adaptive music and overall good voice overs (way better than the first game).

I've played through quite alot of adventure games and I would rank this one in the top 5.

Now I'm off to see if the third game can top it!

After absolutely HATING the first game (mostly due to it's thoroughly unlikable and horribly acted protagonist) I pretty much ignored the second game in the series. I'm glad I finally gave it a chance when it came to Steam though, as it felt like a VAST improvement.

A MUCH more likable protagonist, a better paced story which still manages to be mostly ambiguous as to whether there's anything supernatural going on or not, more logical puzzles...there's a lot here which is much improved over the first game. It's a good length too but the variety of locations with a minimum of backtracking helps keep it interesting.

The voice acting is still mostly terrible, but that's pretty much to be expected of adventure games of it's time. It also has possibly one of the most ridiculously abrupt cliffhanger endings I've seen (from what I gather it runs directly into the third and final game) but overall...yeah. I liked it.

Four cases of hereditary brain-madness out of five.

A fun and enjoyable Point and Click game with interesting locations and characters with a very dark storyline - a welcome change from the usual light hearted competition. A few scares here and there, but nothing which you will lose any sleep over.

Yes , as mentioned elsewhere, the main character comes across a bit like a spoilt brat at first but his dry sense of humour soon becomes quite amusing to listen to.

Solid graphics with a mix of prerendered scenes and hand painted artwork this game was a pleasure to admire.
It also features a "Show items" hotkey similar to Secret Files which you may love or hate - I find it a very useful feature as well as the option for hints should you find yourself stuck.

Overall a very worthwhile Point and Click adventure which I look forward to replaying in the coming years.

I played first part as a kid. It was very good point'n'click and also a great horror story for a kid like me. Second part is turning on slowly but then it spins like crazy. Its should be called action point and click. Tension aint releasing you until the very resolve. Or not resolve at all. THE END? Im instalin third part now i want to know WHAT HAPPEND NEXT! Good story, logic riddles (syndrom of connect u wiener with floor to make a flower grow aint appearing here;D) Perfect soft horror and detective storytelling. If you liked first part you will love this game!

tl;dr This is a good classic point-and-click adventure game.

Graphics are good, but the animations are somewhat awkward. Sound and music is good too.

Puzzles are on the easy side (only played through about half the game when writing this review), but perhaps they become more challenging further ahead. The solutions to the puzzles are mostly logical. The hotspot system is pretty good so that you don't need to do any pixel hunting, unless you want to. You just press space bar and it shows the objects you can interact with.

You can double-click to skip the walk animations. There is also a map which you can use to further cut down on the time needed to go from A to B. You can also skip conversations, which is nice.

Overall, a solid 4 out of 5.

Complete waste of money
Did the developers actually play this game and think it waas good? I doubt it.

Hey guys - There is such a thing as TOO MUCH DIALOG, it just goes on and on and on for no reason at all. I'm sure it looked good on paper, but when it takes me 15 clicks to get through one useless conversation there is something wrong.

If you click on a meaningless object you better go make yourself a cup of tea because he's going to blab on about it for 5-10 minutes. It's completely unneccessary.

I couldn't fathom wasting my time on this game so I uninstalled it. The developers should be ashamed.

I liked this game, big improvement over the first Black Mirror. Well put together point and click adventure game, the puzzles weren't too difficult, nor were they too easy. The ambience of the game worked very well and the storyline kept you interested right up till the end with a nice cliffhanger to another sequel. I'd give it about a 6 out of 10 for a score, definitely worth it.

I liked this game and you will too if you like a lot of puzzles and point and click games with a horror type story. The story is the strongest part of the black mirror series along with the look of the game.
The graphics are nice for an older game. The only things I don't like are
1. the walking is a bit slow and you walk back and forth a lot which can get a bit boring.
2. there are a lot of things to look at, and some of those things are rather meaningless. It would have been better if the developers had only included things to look at that were totally relevant to the game.
For example, do you really need to look at the mansion and see a vine growing up to a window and comment on that vine?
I found I got sick of looking at every little detail because I just wanted to get on with the story.
But, In order not to miss clues you HAVE to look at everything, even the things that are not totally relevant.

Other than that..a really great little point and click.

I enjoyed Black Mirror 1 for the story and graphics, but not the voice overs or the characters. Black Mirror II took the best from Black Mirror 1 and added a new dimension to the game. It was interesting to see some of the characters and places from number 1 but adding in a more modern look really did the game justice. It was very well done, the characters, places, voice overs, graphics and music were all excellent. I also liked the fact that for those of us who get frustrated at a puzzle that, unable to complete, means that you can't see a game trhough to the end, there was a SKIP button! I have to say, for those who have not played the Black Mirror games before, although Black Mirror I was not as good as II, it is worth playing it first as the story is a continuation. I am now looking forward to playing Black Mirror III.....tomorrow!

This game didn't get good until Chapter III. The point of the game seemed to be the MaGuyver escapes everywhere the main character turned. I did like seeing things from the first game...in ruins. Hope the third one is better.

I think i liked the first one just a little bit better, but this was most definetly one of the most engaging game i've played in years. I'm sorry I didn't come back to point & click games earlier. It took me roughly 15 hours of gameplay to finish it. I'll install Black Mirror 3 and start clicking again in a few minutes :)
