“Did you enjoy “Sanitarium” and Agatha Christie's first mystery? If you can answer "yes" to these questions, then I highly recommend The Black Mirror as a "journey into darkness" well worth your time and effort.” 75 % – Four Fat Chicks

Black Mirror is my favourite horror adventure game (with Still Life being a not really close second). It's got everything you may possibly want from an old school adventure game: tons of challenging but always logical puzzles, an extremely gripping story, good voice acting, diverse and well designed environments, and a remarkable length. It also has an ending of its own, while the sequels (which are also worth checking out) works as part 1 and 2 of the same storyline. Overall though, the Black Mirror franchise is a must play for everyone who calls themselves an adventure game.
Black mirror is a classic; it is and always will be one of the greatest horror games of all time. This is one of the pioneers of highly rendered 3d graphics, and it looks amazing. This is an atmospheric game. I always feel very anxious and scared. My absolute favorite thing about this game is the story. There are so many unexpected and brilliantly planted plot points. Another amazing thing about Black Mirror is that there is so much game content to play through. I would strongly recommend this game to fans of horror games because this game possesses plenty of amazing qualities and it is one of my favorite games.
