The game is about negative feelings and actions like pain, betrayal, and self-harm. The story revolves around an ordinary American student named Darren Michaels, a.k.a. Adrian Gordon. Michaels will discover that he is the last heir of a cursed British estate. To add up to the twist, he is actually possessed by an ancestor named Mordred who surfaces in an untimely manner to scare people who get in the way.
Mordreds English voice is like a Darth Vadar impersonation in a comedy skit. Maybe because the game is developed in Germany and that the German version could have been better. Darrens voice however, is better but still not far from Mordreds comedic one.
Youll be amazed how they make such superb background. The Gothic castles that are softly-lit bring you a mixture of horror and excitement that makes you want more. The Autumn forests are very refreshing together with the music that accompanies the panoramic view. The overall picture will give you a feeling of suspense that makes you on-guard always.
The characters are interesting. The local entrepreneur who made a tourist market in the middle of the obvious scenery of murders happening on that place is an attraction. In one stop, hell ask for a pose holding a knife then makes a life-size standee of you displayed at the hotel lobby.
The puzzles are very interesting too. You get your own share of complexity in several layers. The funny thing is that Black Mirror 3 is one of the games wherein you know what or where to go next but youll surely be crazy of how you will unlock the five obscure things you need to get there. Youll also get a handful of locations, items, and characters that mix and matching itself is an adventure.
Black Mirror 3 is really one massive and complicated game especially with the puzzles. One thing is that even if you have all the answers or you know where your next stop is, you may still be tempted to look up on cheats and you may want to quit long before but you may regret it if you do.
The ending was worth it if you want to experience a good scare. The additional features from Black Mirror 2 were great too. One drawback perhaps is the metaphysical mini-games like one where you need to reassemble a whole human skeleton. Better make that anatomy book at hand at all times.
On second thought, Black Mirror 3 is for those who want to scare themselves. It may not be harmonious at all for some. There are good points while they possess bad points too. Some people just forget the game should give suspense and horror to the characters and not the gamers itself.
The concept for this game is something that you may find straight out of a science fiction movie that is set in Mars or something like that really. You have a guy named Parker working on the red planet for some tyrannical corporation that works their guys to the bone; and suddenly, the workers just cant take their suffering anymore and have decide to take matters in their own hands.
Parker finds himself in the midst of a battle against the cruel employers and their legion of heavily armed protectors. Throughout the game, you will be playing as Parker who is rather good looking and is a first person shooter who has a wide variety of weapons at his own disposal. This is a very enjoyable first person shooter game that will give anyone playing it a rocking good time, though that good time may not last very long as you may get about ten hours of play time from it. If you cannot get enough of it however, it does have some replay value that you may enjoy as well.
This game was quite clearly inspired by some earlier shooter game versions especially the game Half Life which was made by the same design studio. The formula for the game isnt very different from the one they used on half life but it does seem like they refined it a tad bit. Just like with any decent shooter games out there, you will find that Red faction is a very responsive game when you use the keyboard and the mouse to play it. Being Parker, you will find that you are all in all very well protected against any attacks made by the enemy thanks to the red mining suit that you have been given. This red suit is so awesome that you can even use it to breathe underwater for an indefinite amount of time. Parker is a very fast runner and has very nice high jumps; plus, he can also tout a huge arsenal of weapons. By huge we are talking maybe about a dozen.
These weapons that he carries are pretty standard for this type of game and you can find that every other shooter game has the same type of weapons for their hero. But in red faction the weapons are very well done and you will certainly enjoy using them in defeating the tyrannical employers to be found in Mars. You will be fighting with guards who are very harsh, and by the way, they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes so you will have plenty of variety when it comes to the guards. Be warned though that the tougher guards have very good aim and they can also dodge any shots that you throw their way. They are also very good at running away especially during those times that they no longer have any ammunition to use against you. It might not be groundbreaking but it sure is a lot of fun to play.
