    This game sucked! It has great graphics and a great game concept but the mechanics and controls are TERRIBLE. If you like to replay 10-20 minutes of a game over and over and over and over and ... then this is the game for you. Could have been a great game but seems to me that it needed ALOT more play testing before release. Story - 9 : Graphics - 9 : Controls - 3 : Gameplay - 1

  1. You've never played anything like Mirror's Edge. It's a genuine original. When it's good - like when you're soaring between two rooftop cranes, pigeons scattering and traffic thrumming below, or dashing between roaming sniper laser sights, breaking into an enormous needle-shaped skyscraper - it's a total rush. And even when it's not quite so good, when you can't work out how to get through a particularly tricky section, the compulsion to keep trying remains strong. [Dec 2008, p.84]
  2. Not your average gaming experience - Mirror's Edge takes the FPS format and flips it on its head. A brilliant and unique experience, even if the small shooting parts aren't quite up to scratch.
  3. First-person platforming is certainly nothing new, but an entire game built around it is. It works and comes across as a new beast, just don't expect a lot of play time from it unless you're obsessive compulsive. There's still room for refinement, but anyone who's curious, jump in.
