Jan 22, 2021Regardless 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.
Dec 7, 2020It might not be as groundbreaking as some of DONTNOD Entertainment’s other games, but Twin Mirror really holds up as a replayable adventure. Its Mind Palace mechanics are a lot of fun and each ending was a delightful revelation that made me question my own sense of truth. Overall, the game is an excellent addition to this company’s library of high-quality narrative-driven games. My only complaint is that it’s a tad steep price for its length, so I’d probably wait for a sale.

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.… Full Review »

It's a fine, underrated, detective game, and your choices actually affect the outcome. The graphics are great.

Sure, it lacks a bit the scope of the Life is strange games and the twist is not that shocking but I felt that the characters were written great and i was entertained well.… Full Review »
