Remember the first Black Mirror? No? Well, you should, not just because this is its sequel, but also because that was a great adventure game. A masterpiece, I dare say, and even though you may disagree my feelings towards that game are nothing short of devotion and gratefulness for the sweet hours I spent playing it. But this is about Black Mirror 2. It picks up some year after the events of the first game, you play as a new character and the setting is different. At the first, it may look like there are few to no connections with what went on at the Black Mirror manor when Samuel Gordon investigated the death of his grandfather... But they will emerge, and you'll be in for another great ride. The atmosphere is as top-notch as it was in Black Mirror 1, the puzzles are just as cleverly designed (quite challenging but fair), and the voice acting is jolly good. Black Mirror 2 also boasts crispy graphics, fluid animations and heavily detailed environments. As mentioned though, the most important part is the story, which should live up to your expectations if you loved the first Black Mirror. Just know that BM2 ends with a cliffhanger, and you'll need to play the third and final entry in the series to know how it all ends. Not that Black Mirror 3 doesn't deserve to be played though - just be aware that they're best played in rapid succession!
I must confess, this game is surprisingly good. It starts very slow, take almost one hour before the real game starts, but after that, is all worth it. Great story, great voice actors and lot of moments of suspance. The only probablems that I found are the lack of lip sync, so you can't tell if the protagonist is thinking or talking. A problem that fortunatly got fixed in the sequel. I really suggest to play this game, expecially if you're a fan of real good Adventure games.
