Summary: Mirror's Edge is fast paced and chalk full of action. This game is kind of like a hybrid of the movies "Run Lola, Run" and "The Matrix" and the Half Life games. The comic book style animation that narrates the story is unique and the dialogue (although sometimes cheesy) isn't half-bad. I only wish there was some kind of Free-run feature where you didn't have to hit checkpoints , but could freely run throughout the levels. Oh well. Still a great game. And for the price?
Summary: Fun game with a small learning curve with an okay story. The action is quick and entertaining. Sometimes, the expected steps to finish a level were a little more frustrating than exciting, which is not something I savor in a game - this brought the 4 instead of 5 stars. But, my guess is most gamers will enjoy it and be glad they paid the small price of admittance.
Summary: Mirror's Edge was very fun to play. Never played anything like it. The first-person perspective coupled with the setting and overall gameplay provided a high level of immersion. You get caught up in the moment of being chased and thinking on your feet. The graphics were amazing. The most frustrating thing about the game is the level of precision required to overcome obstacles.
Summary: The ad says it is for windows xp and vista so I did not know if it would work with windows 7, so I thought I would report that it does work with windows 7 64 bit in case some one else was wondering the same. Game looks and plays really great even though I have only Intel HD 3000 graphics. Does require an internet connection when you first install the game on your computer so that you can enter the code to activate and verify it.
Summary: Everything about this game was great; from the controls and the visuals to the atmosphere and uniqueness of it's game play. The only thing that bogs the game down is a lame story and bland/unnecessary gunplay. However, this is easily overlooked, and I still believe Mirror's Edge is a game everyone should experience.
Summary: This game is very visceral. Most games have you moving around with your head perfectly level. This game you see your perspective go every which way while you're running around the levels just like you do in real life when you go running. Many many games have since copied this feature, but Mirror's Edge was the first to really do a good job at it. Also, in a first for first person games, gun shooting isn't the emphasis.
Summary: The game is great, but it is too short. The best part is not the normal mode but the time trial mode. BUT, it is ridiculous many features in the game need you to get online but there is not even a single server online. You can't submit your score, you can't view the leader board, you can't even just get online. And not to mention playing the game online. Because there is no server for you to connect, no solutions, no workarounds.
Summary: I love Portal, and this game has a lot of similarities. I like the fact that every environment is brightly lit and colorful. Never had to squint or wonder what mght leap out of the dark. I would prefer to explore the areas rather than fight and run for my life, but I knew I'd be doing that before going in. The game requires a hell of a computer, so be ready. VERY graphics intensive.
