the black mirror series is fantastic,great story,artwork,and locations .only problem i had was the voice acting.some of it was so bad .the actor who plays darren is actually a voice and acting coach in real life .but some of his speech was atrocious ,and some words he couldnt even pronounce them properly.

how about pacing?
how long does it take to move one scene to another?
i know some adventrue games that stay one scene for 1-2 hours

Get the first one, it's the best. The voice acting is absolutely wonderful, at least in my language - not too sure about English. The story is gripping and well-written. Since other two games are not from the original developer, there are some continuity errors, but you can't really notice them if you haven't played all of them in two weeks of time. So yeah, I'd rather get the first one and if it you like it, buy the other two. Though I really doubt, that if you won't like the first one, you will these two.

Indeed part 1 was the best-
i own the 2nd and now the 3rd.
Actualy i didn´t like the 2nd one it became boring soon.
But it had a good storytelling. I hope the 3rd is as good as the first game.

I didn't play the first one. The second one was great.

I'm about a third of the way through the third one and so far it has been a huge disappointment. It's a big step backwards. The puzzles are a big step backwards and the story isn't as interesting.

Even the interface is messed up. In BM2 it was easy to find information in the diary, which can be important to solving puzzles. In BM3, you will see the icon flash on the screen to indicate the diary is updated, but often it is hard to determine what was updated.

BM3 isn't horrible but I expected much more based on the review at adventuregamers.com. Hopefully BM3 gets better because I'm finding it tough to motivate myself to continue playing.

And now I'm in chapter 6 and the game in anything is getting more frustrating. Such a giant step backwards from the second game.

There are very few locations in the game and you end up revisting them very frequently. I get tired of talking to the same handful of people.

Other problems include items that suddenly appear where there was nothing before. Puzzles are either completely obvious or obscure.

I would rate the first game as 4 out of 5 and so far I would rate Black Mirror 3 as 2 out of 5.

And that's it, I gave up part way through Chapter six. What a terrible adventure game, so much worse than the second game in the series. I don't care about the few dollars I spent to buy the series, I do regret the time I wasted on it. I did enjoy the second game a lot but I still consider it a wast of time because I didn't manage to complete the series.

Save your money, there are lots of much better adventure games out there. For example, try Anna's Quest - such a great game.

Well, the 3rd version of the game is a rushed version of the second one. it is obvious that the developers suffer from budget constraint. With that kept in mind, you would forgive them especially that they did their best to finish the series, other developers wouldn't even bother to do so (we have so many examples). If you don't care much about the gameplay then play the first episode, the storyline is amazing (even if you have already spoiled it). The ending in the 3rd was disappointing (as you have predicted) but again, the trilogy is worth playing in a whole.
