The other adventure games in that list do say Cranberry on the individual game pages, but Gray Matter does not, so I'm not sure why it's listed there.

Lost Chronicles of Zerzura was fun, but not nearly as good as the Black Mirror games. Mata Hari was frustrating for me. It had way too many mini games, and while the in between parts were okay, they weren't interesting enough to endure the numerous, annoying mini games a second time.

I had a similar problem with the "magic" puzzles in Gray Matter. They were pretty much the same puzzle over and over, and I didn't like it the first time. The story was good though.


Thanks for the link, Jenny. That's strange that it would be listed with the Cranberry games on Moby Games.

The story in Gray Matter is what hooked me, it's true, although I thought the standard inventory puzzles were fine. I enjoyed the Daedalus side story and the puzzles that went along with it quite a bit. I do agree with you regarding the magic puzzles. I thought the idea was intriguing, but the execution could have been much better. The magic tricks were just basically following instructions from a list, which wasn't very exciting or much fun.

However, I'd take the tedious magic trick repetition over the frustration of the Mata Hari dancing quick time events and stealth train mini games any day. lol

I rather enjoyed the dancing in Mata Hari. I got frustrated a few times, but I liked it. wink

I forgot about those magic puzzles now that you bring them up a replay becomes a tough concept

O.K. A change in the verdict on the order of BM's coming up, I suspect wink

I am well on the way to finishing BM3 now and if the final chapter is as enticing as those that have gone before, this third game will definitely take over 1st place in the trilogy - for me
I have SO thoroughly enjoyed this final "episode" smile

I'm considering Woodruff and the Schnibble for my next replay. Unless I get totally tempted by Lighthouse The Dark Being, of course, which is a lurking possibility !! hamster

Finished Black Mirror 2 this evening. Taking a break before starting Black Mirror 3 though. At least until tomorrow.

Truthfully, I want to wait longer because it's getting to be too much at one time which ends up taking enjoyment away from it, but still, I don't really want to wait too long. I am anxious to get through with Black Mirror and move on to some other replays and new plays.

I started a casual game that doesn't appear to be too long so will probably start game 3 later today. I'm glad you enjoyed it Mad. the only thing I remember about it at the moment, is the shades, which I did not like.

Hi.

Sorry !! I used the wrong "tense" in my last post, oldbroad.
I should have said "I certainly DO like it" as I'm still playing it - and am just about to start the final chapter whistle

[I'm being delayed though because at the moment I'm producing "year end" accounts for a charity school where I act as Voluntary Treasurer and I'll have to forego a fair amount of gaming time until they are finished shocked ]

A big advantage to BM3 over BM2 (for me) is that the story progresses much faster and I find that a lot more satisfactory thumbsup

Good Luck for when you get to BM3, anyway grin

Started game 3 last night.

Good luck with your year end accounts Mad. Too bad they're interrupting your game time right when you're nearing the end.

The delay might be a short term saving of my sanity though, oldbroad, if what I remember of the coming up "Shades" is accurate scared

Anyway, let us know how you like YOUR replay of BM3, won't you ?? grin

Well I have entered the area of The Shades. AGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!

I had forgotten JUST how frustrating this part of the game is.
So if I make it out alive I will be holding on to the appropriate save, that's for sure scared

I have little doubt I, too, will need help, oldbroad. So MaG's walkthrough might be getting a good thumbing through - metaphorically speaking laugh

Phew !!
Utilising bits of MaG's walkthrough, as and when I became desperate, I have spent hours today making my way through the shades and have finally got as far as being outside the door of the exit room - only to find myself BADLY STUCK at this eleventh hour !! rolleyes

[ Can't get the light to be turned on in the final room so I can enter it cry]

Absolutely NOT able to try any more today - but hopefully, in my next break from accounts, I might solve the problem whistle
