Ever since I played the sequel „Black Mirror 2“, I told myself to play the first part too, so I can get to know the whole story about the Gordon family. And I’m glad I bought it.
The game is from 2003, but this is barely noticeable. The environment and the graphic display is amazing considering its release date and the only thing less detailed are the characters themselves and the cutscenes. But that’s no big deal.
The story is thrilling from the very first moment. It includes some puzzles (not too many), which were fun to solve. The gameplay is enjoyable. Horror moments and mysteries create creepy effects and you are even able to die by making wrong choices. It’s kind of brutal sometimes, but I don’t mind that ;)
As you get into the character and deeper into the story, you can’t stop playing to solve the truth about the family history.
After about 14 hours and 3 or 4 times peeking into the walkthrough solution, I finished the game and a great impression lasts.
I totally recommend this game to all the point&click-adventure-lovers. It’s worth the price.
Now I’m looking forward to play the last part of the Black Mirror series.
In addition: I had no such problems like sound bugs or crashes during playing!
