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: 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.
Summary: I bought Mirror's Edge several years ago when it first came out because it was a break with the traditional First Person Shooter genre that dominates computer games. The parkour aspect is nicely implemented and the city scenery is simply beautiful on a PC with a decent graphics card and physx capability to display all the eye candy.
Summary: Mirrors Edge is one of those rare games that come along once in a while that are perfect for their appeared simplicity. On the surface this is a game about running that really only requires the player to use two buttons and follow objects that glow red. But deeper than that it is a beautifully artistic game that changes the way gamers and developers view the FPS genre, at least thats what we hope. There are far too many Call of Duty's out there for my taste.
Summary: This game triggers my vertigo. WHich is cool. After playing for a while I thought it might help desensatize me but instead i just get sweatty. Maybe Im retraumatizing myself. Dunno. The game is kinda cool. but the save points are dumb. Once Ive cleared most of an area it gets boring fast redoing a sequence over and over and over. same reason I put down angry birds after I fail an area more than a couple times. I dont play games obsessively.
