GameSpot writes: "The game looks lovely but relatively typical for the genre. The strength of the game depends on the puzzles, and on the story. The Black Mirror featured rather mediocre voice acting and an unsatisfying ending; hopefully, the sequel can deliver a more satisfying and immersive narrative.
Adventure games may not be what they used to be, but the Black Mirror was successful enough to inspire a sequel. The Black Mirror 2 doesn't seem to be playing with any genre conventions, but that will be just fine for folks who played the original. Look for The Black Mirror 2 on store shelves in 2010".
