“Twin Mirror is a frustratingly uneven adventure; it feels slow-paced yet ends too quickly, it features a wide cast of characters but doesn’t give them enough depth, and it presents you with crimes to investigate without letting you play much of a role in solving them. The back and forth between Sam and his double provides the odd enjoyably tense moment, and the mind palace sections at least provide a change of pace, but the overarching narrative doesn’t so much as gradually ramp up to a startling climax as skid and thud into a clearly signposted deadend. Outside of the eccentric influence of Pac-Man, the biggest surprise in Twin Mirror was that it left me with so little to reflect on.”
