Not as good as the first one but alright none the less.

The first game in the series I quite enjoyed so I was definitely up for giving this one a go despite the reviews being slightly less positive towards this one. Although it definitely doesn’t have the same charm as the first one did.

It’s pretty cheesy, as pretty much all HOGs are. The voice acting is kind of bad, it was bearable in the first one but this one is just that tad bit cheesier. At least it’s to the point though that I found it amusing more than cringe worthy, which is good, I guess? Especially when he “manically laughs” that’s always funny. Given that, there wasn’t as much dialog in this one as there was the first one. The first one your character would talk to themselves, this one you seem to play a mute. So not as much talking despite the other characters that pop up, but that isn’t exactly a deal breaker I’m not really that bothered about it.

One thing that did bother me a tiny bit was that this game, compared to the previous one, is a lot more linear. I liked the freedom of jumping in and out the first one had. You tend to just follow the path during this one.

Story wise, it’s alright. I mean, no HOG has really had a thrilling story to it from what I have played. It’s fitting for the genre I guess and subtly follows on from the first game but it’s nothing spectacular.

Again it’s pretty low res, who those who care about this stuff and it took me around 2 hours to finish, so it’s fairly short.

All in all, it’s nothing special but if you are a fan of the genre like I am then I’m sure this little series would be a nice little addition to the collection.

TL;DR: Alright but hasn’t the same charm the first one had. It’s all around a bit ‘meh’, it’s not amazing but it’s not horrendous either. If you like the genre I reckon it would be an alright addition to the collection.

For anyone interested, My Review for Mirror Mysteries:

Not a good as the first one.

Decent hidden object point and click.

But.. they changed the mirror's voice. The humor is gone. The game has become more creepy. And the music now sucks. It also shorter than the all really short first one.

Get it cheep. Use a sale or a coupon cause it's only worth a buck.

The second Mirror Mysteries are slighty different than the first one. The graphics are a bit better and the locations more interesting (for example the first world which I liked the most is nicely inspired by art deco and maybe even by the Bioshock). The story again revolves around the same bad character as the previous game but this time it's much better (but still nothing deep). The voice acting sounds more professional and the cheesiness from the first game is gone (that's a shame I liked it :D). There are also more and much better puzzles (but they're skippable if you don't want to solve them). Also the gameplay is slightly different this time. Besides the standard hidden object finding there are also some point'n'click adventure elements blended in. So all in all if you like hidden objects finding you are on a good address.

-More interesting puzzles
-Better story
-Less cheaply hidden objects
-Longer than the first game

-Sometimes it's hard to find where to put a completed object
-Still a little bit short
-Puzzles are too easy to solve

I played the first one last weekend, so I figured I might as well wrap up the second while I'm here.

Apart from general bad temper, I'm not sure I get the vocal-minority hatred here for Mirror Mysteries 2: Forgotten Kingdoms. It's true that it commits the scarlet sin of not being exactly the same as the first game in the series, although it's actually pretty close. It's a short, easy, slightly silly excursion into a few realms in the lands the malevolent Magic Mirror, which once again has no sense of humor and intends to take over the world and destroy everyone muahaha. If that sounds a little like the original, well, yeah.

The first had an easier forward-pressing pace, which this one trades for vaguer goals set in more fantastical worlds. The core mechanic of assembling sets of hidden-object items to move from one location to the next is pretty much the same, as is the enraged mirror that taunts you through the settings. This time, instead of playing Tommy and Charlotte's hero mom, you're a detective sent by adult Charlotte to track her grown-up brother Tommy, who has disappeared after chasing down an unusual mirror, because he has dim memories of another mirror when he was a child, and so forth, la la la.

Artwork here is more ambitious - I especially liked the future city in the clouds, which is a little bit steampunk, a little bit Rapture, and a little bit Syberia. Gameplay doesn't throw any unexpected curves, and once again I ran the game in two and a half hours, so mere mortals should get through it in around two. As you put together the pieces to resolve each environment you'll collect mirror shards along the way to get the next portal working, and these are pretty clearly indicated.

Voicing is minimal and not quite as good as the first, but the art is much more interesting, though sometimes the goals aren't as clear as they could be. This time, playing as a detective and not a mother, there isn't any call to tidy up, sew, or do any of the household tasks that plagued the original: here it's all putting machines under power, making the train run, restoring water and flowers to the peaceful glade. Hmph.

Like the first game in the series, this is more of a hidden object adventure than a point and click game. However, the puzzles are slightly harder. The game is a little buggy; I often had to click multiple times on inventory objects to pick them up, and it was sometimes difficult placing them in just the right spot. It only took two hours to play, the hidden object scenes were very short, and isn't very replayable, so I would recommend picking this one up when its on sale.

The story line doesn't follow the first game very well; suddenly the mirror is evil rather than just annoyed at vandal children.

Very nice and EASY point and click adventure. Cool story and some decent little puzzles. Lots of nice visuals and very trippy. Took me around 3 hours to complete.

Pros :
- Good soundtrack and graphics
- very easy to play, and possibility to skip the puzzle
- there is a story and you interact with people to help them for a stuff.

Cons :
- some bugs, I needed to quit the game as I was stuck (missing items)
- when you have to look for items (see pictures 7 & 8)... personally I click everywhere, as the hidden items are VERY WELL hidden
- sometimes there are non-intuitive actions to do.

As othes have pointed out, this sequel was made with little regard to the first one. The mirror who was not evil is now super evil, you dont play as the mom who was a rather good character, and the graphic style is so different that the whole game feels jarring. I can't help but think of Secret of NIHM 2 in terms of the type of sequel this is. Skip this title and find a different HO game.

This isn't a bad hidden object/puzzle game - perhaps the puzzles are overly simple, but the HO bits are some of the best I've seen - but it's extremely short, has virtually no story, and is really too easily completed even on Advanced difficulty.
That said, if you can get for an extremely low price, consider this a Thumbs Up instead.

A big improvement over the first one, but the game lacks decent resolution controls.

Good music, voice acting, puzzles and scenes. The story is a bit awkward, I never got the idea that the mirror was an evil ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ in the first one.

I paid .74 cents for this game and, honestly, that feels fair. The levels are extremely contrived and the logic puzzles are...shaky at best. It's really more annoying than fun, in the end.

On the plus side, I got to have a frustrating bout of nostalgia for mid-90's computer games, so...there's that.

Similar to the first, but with slightly worse voice actors. Gameplay is good with decent puzzles, though once again I wouldn't reccomend this for anyone with any sort of sight problems, as many items are hidden on backgrounds of the same texture and colour.

One of the worst HO games I've ever played. The first one in the series was far better. Don't buy it at full price. Actually... don't buy it even on sale. It's dull, boring and annoying. Waste of time and money. Invest your time and resources in something more enjoyable.

I liked the original Mirror Mysteries quite a lot, but this sequel was clearly written by a different developer, and it shows. Gone is the brave and pretty heroine from the first game, only to be replaced by her extremely annoying kid who has grown up and apparently gone insane while searching for the magical mirror his mother talked about. You play a private investigator who travels to the mirror worlds to find him. (Is that really necessary -- we can't just leave the little bugger to his fate?)

Speaking of the mirror, they completely ruined his personality. The original mirror wasn't exactly evil, he was just a curmudgeon who was annoyed at some unruly kids for breaking his mirrors. His sardonic commentary was very entertaining, and he actually helped the heroine in her quest. This new mirror has gone completely off the deep end into deranged villainy. The new voice actor plays him as a one-note bad guy, and there is nothing interesting or entertaining about him at all.

On top of all that, the hidden object scenes are much harder (but not in a good way), tbe puzzles are boring, and the mirror worlds are just derivative copies of worlds we've already seen a hundred times before in other, better games.

Ultimately I cannot recommend this game, even on sale. If you like hidden object games play the original, or search for one of the many superior titles developed by Artifex Mundi or Silverback Games.
