Last part of the story of the Gordons!
If the kind of point-and-click that you like is about gathering and combining items, plus a lot of dialogs, then this could be the game for you, especially if you played and enjoyed the first two Black Mirror games and want to know how the story ends.
My general feeling during this game was boredom and impatience. It started with a series of long dialogs and uneventful actions and I remember wondering if it would ever get interesting. Then things got a little better, but not much, and then had me yawning and rolling my eyes at the end.
Personally, I am more into games that combine gathering-and-combining with logic puzzles, deductions and not too long dialogs, which is why I (who played the previous two) felt disappointed. This game gave me very (I do mean very) long dialogs, 90% gather-and-combine and just five puzzles in the whole game. From those five, three were "remember the image you saw before and you are done" and only two were logic puzzles. I will not say if they were easy or hard, because that varies from player to player. My problem was that they were just two!
There are a few glitches. I was forced to skip on a "puzzle" (which was no puzzle, really) because the right answer was not recognized, so I could never move on from it. I had to go to the walkthrough to find out that it was, indeed, a glitch.
Now, the story... Oh well, taste is subjective and I can only say what it was for me. Compared to how much I liked the story in the first game and how I was already sort of disappointed by the second, this one really didn't do it for me. They start, as I said, too slow and uneventful, then they try to regain the "creepiness" of the previous stories(the creepy tortures and experiments that the doctors were conducting, the morgue, etc.)
but, for me, it was like "yeah, I saw that already in the previous two games". For the last three chapters, they take the player on a rollercoaster of Catholic fervor mixed up with a pagan ritual gone wrong and a spiritual hero on a battle for his soul, the future of mankind and even the very foundation and preservation of the Catholic Church. Religious beliefs aside, I felt that the writers aimed at doing something original and overdid the plot, cramming a lot of long dialogs and clips at the end with very little choice or interaction (save click here, put that there) from the player.
I am not toooo sorry that I got it, as now I at least know how it ends. But I wish I had waited for a better discount (I couldn't help myself and got it with the 20% off release). This was definitely not my cup of tea! But, as I said, if you are into this kind of game, this is a great one, which is the only reason I will click on "yes" recommend this game. The voices sounded very nice to me, and I have to say that I liked the images very much. I liked to wander the castle that I once wandered as Samuel and remeber events from that first Black Mirror, like the sound of the potatoes on the fire in the kitchen when I went to talk to Bates.
