Obviously, it's been quite slow on the news these last few days. Marek blames the holiday season. Anyway, Four Fat Chicks has reviewed The Black Mirror, stating that it's "well worth your time and effort", while Gamer.tv reviews Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon, giving it a score of 9/10.

On a different note: I finished Broken Sword 3 yesterday, ticking in at a good 12 hours of playing time. The game has the same feeling as the previous two, and I can definitely recommend the game to anyone who liked them. Our final review of the game will be posted soon.

Both Jolt.co.uk and Quandary have posted their reviews of Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. Here's a clip from Quandary's review:

 

I like animated films as well as rollicking adventure stories, and this was both. The extensive use of cutscenes, the exceptional 3D animation and the fine musical score gave The Sleeping Dragon a very movie like feel, and the plot could have been Indiana Jones at his finest. It bounces around the world, which of course needs saving. Diabolical ancient forces are being unleashed, aided and abetted by henchfolk both evil and beautiful.

Microïds has just released a movie (9.37MB) showing close to three minutes of actual gameplay, dialogue, and cutscenes from the upcoming Syberia II. Make sure you have the latest DivX installed to view this movie.

Update: as Microïds has rightly pointed out to us, this is not an officially released movie, but rather someone's recording of the Syberia II demo that was released around E3.

IGN has just posted its review of Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, giving it a score 9/10 and an Editor's Choice Award:

"Uru: Ages Beyond Myst is probably the best adventure game I've played this year. The addition of the massively multiplayer environment promises to be very exciting as well. The graphics are stunning, the sound is beautifully done, the puzzles are what one expects from a Myst game, the story is deep and the lore is massive and interesting. I really loved this game and I think anyone who picks it up will love it as well, as long as you play it in 1st person."
