    Regardless of the bizarre lip movements, Twin Mirror is an excellent adventure game. Not only was I enthralled by its mystery, I was absolutely enamored with the presentation. I wasn’t expecting something so filmlike and cinematic, but I walked away delighted and I can say that some of its powerful scenes will stay with me for a while.

    Twin Mirror is a solid thriller adventure that excites with its great atmosphere, but could be a little more innovative.
  3. Dontnod knows how to tell stories to the people. Especially blurred and complicated ones. Twin Mirror is a good experience.

    It’s a shame that Twin Mirror manages to create such a compelling and interesting opening but just doesn’t manage to stick the landing. It definitely didn’t take me on the same kind of emotional journey as some of DONTNOD’s previous games, and unfortunately I found myself not really caring too much about Sam or the residents of Basswood.

    Twin Mirror is a disappointing title, with a mediocre story and uninspiring characters, and some gameplay features aside, there isn't much to talk about there either. It's not necessarily a bad game but it's far below the standards set by Dontnod in their previous titles such as Life is Strange and Vampyr.

    Is Dontnod Entertainment a one-hit wonder? It seems so, judging by those past few years. Twin Mirror is a bang average adventure game you’ll finish in one forgettable afternoon.

    Twin Mirror feels like Life Is Strange on a shoe-string budget.

    Unfortunately characters are mainly flat, Sam was good, also Anna, but they didn't gave me anything marvelous. But "Him" was good, I love that character. For a 2020 game graphics are good, it isn't like TLOU2, but this is just a style it doesn't need to be i per realistic.
    That's sad that almost no one knows this game.

They went all-out with the graphics, but at the cost of most of the game -- it ends right as it feels like it's about to really take off. It feels like less than half of a game. If this was a matter of budget, I would've preferred that they kept the graphics at the level of Life Is Strange 2 so they could have a more fleshed-out story. Expand

    Things that are important for this genre of games:

    > Interesting protagonist > Good graphics & animations > Great facial animations
    Things that are important for this genre of games:

    > Interesting protagonist

    > Good graphics & animations

    > Great facial animations and lip-sync

    > Engaging and interesting story

    > Even pacing and good narrative structure

    > Interesting and well-written characters

    > Important and impactful decisions

    > No 'illusion of choice'

    > No meaningless interactions - "press X to make a vague, uninteresting comment about thing''

    Twin Mirror excels in none of them. It's beyond me how this game manages to learn nothing from the genre and what makes an interactive story game successful.

    While not a complete waste of time, Twin Mirror is not much more.

I've really been into these types of games lately and when I saw a new 2020 one, I thought it should be pretty good. I was wrong. It's exceptionally short to the point it was impossible to have good character development. If the 5 hours of game play had been really good then it would have been worth the money but it was not. It was boring, there really wasn't much interaction with objects and the game world. Really it was a lot of just listening to Sam's bland dialogue. The plotline was not thrilling at all. I'm not picky with games but this was truly disappointing. And the whole "going into Sam's mind" sequences were not exciting the way they potentially could have. I found myself wanting those parts to hurry up and be done. I feel bad for giving such a bad review but I truly don't understand what the creators were thinking. Expand

    DONTNODs string of failures since the brilliant Life Is Strange, just got longer.

    Bruh... another Dontnot trash game. It would be better if they had continued LiS instead of creating this crap.
