If the first series of surprising and unusual universe constantly presents new discoveries, the second is a leisurely noir detective. Wolf quietly on the trail of the villains, sniffing out clues and not in a hurry to arrange scuffle with pursuits.
Smoke and Mirrors leaves little room for maneuver. Hero communicating with someone, then studying mutilated corpse or a small little room, compares the facts and come to a logical conclusion. Player in this production can only activate interactive objects determined uttered phrases and collect simple puzzle. Deal with the episode turns for some half an hour.
But the series looks integral, complete without sagging and ends logically. The authors have done without the tricks with cliff in mid-sentence and left the reserve to continue.
Designers continue to amaze the outskirts of the large cities and frightening crimes naturalistic results. Careful examination of decapitated bodies and walks through the underground brothels do not leave indifferent.


Smoke and Mirrors not unleashes a flurry of revelations Wolf and knocks down a furious pace. This series allows you to fully experience the difficulties of working fabulous sheriff, whether attempts to split the witnesses or unravel the mysteries. Due to the aligned masterful narrative episode runs in one breath and leaves the player one on one with a sense of incompleteness.
