Eurogamer Review: Black Mirror II

It's a bit pretty, too.

Oh, by the way, yesterday Eurogamer posted my review of PC adventure Black Mirror II. It’s a very muddled game, a bemusing combination of remarkable depth and peculiarly lazy, unfortunately enormously spoilt by not having an ending. But this is a nuanced game, and hopefully a review that captures why it’s not to be dismissed. I say things like:

“Uncovering secrets within the town doesn’t reveal a million-year-old monster or suchlike, but instead merely the reality of people’s lives. It’s not stunning, it’s not ground-breaking drama. If anything it’s barely above soap opera. But it’s a heck of a lot more than we’re used to from European adventures.”
