You will either adore this game, or you will tear it from your computer and smash it with aCome and have a go if you think your hard enough.
You will either adore this game, or you will tear it from your computer and smash it with a hammer. You have to be patient and you have to expect the unexpected. Nothing makes sense, it is chaotic and other-worldly, but not understanding it is how you enjoy it.
The Void has no time for people who arent willing to take it seriously. Don't get stuck, because this game gives you no mercy. You will die. This is outside-of-the-box thinking and innovation in the extreme. Its worth playing just to say you have played it.
Good luck from me, because the void doesn't give a **** about you.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Dec 2, 2011Mirror's Edge is by far one of the most innovative, exciting, aesthetically outstanding games I have ever played in my 10+ years as a PCMirror's Edge is by far one of the most innovative, exciting, aesthetically outstanding games I have ever played in my 10+ years as a PC gamer. It effortlessly tears you away from reality and throws you into its world. The exciting, feminine story-line and gorgeous colour palette is something which I have not experienced before in a game on any platform, and is a refreshing escape from the "kill anything that moves" shooters of today.
I would like to think that, if EA's tyranny and hostile presence in the gaming industry was for anything, it was for the development of Mirror's Edge. I would give this absolute masterpiece a 10 if it weren't for the shooting parts which seemed forced onto the developers by out-of-touch executives. The odd handgun is fine but there really is no need for a SAW in a game like this. At least the player is handicapped when using the larger weapons.
Things which should be taken into account if DICE were to improve upon a sequel or prequel - Less emphasis on guns than there already is, and an open city to go wherever you wanted would turn this from a stunning masterpiece to a ground breaking masterpiece.
Well done DICE, this is a game amongst games.… Expand
