Mirror's Edge Review

The game is visually stunning. The use of colors to visually show were Faith needs to go next is magnificent. Graphics there are no complaints.

The only gripe I have with this game is sometimes how sensitive jumping is. While the most crucial part of the game, it is sometimes misleading how far to jump or for that matter, executing a good jump, which often leads to death/falling a couple stories from where you were, realizing there is a checkpoint back up to where you were, then death to get back up there without having to do the whole jumping sequence again.

Other than that, beautiful game.

So when I first saw the pics and the videos for Mirror's Edge I was a bit hesitant at first. I stood back, looked at it, and said, "wow this game can run or fall based on game play." With that said, after beating the game I was left "wowed."

Mirror's Edge takes the concept of free running and puts in the hands of the gamer. The game puts you on the edge of your seat when your quickly jumping from roof-to-roof, sliding down wires, and sliding under obstacles. All this is done while avoiding getting shot but the annoying police of the city.

The graphics were great and the way the city's coloring was so monochromatic fit the game perfectly. The story was intriguing even with its cliché moments. The voice dialogue was well put together and the character animations were impressive.

As for the negatives, i would say that it felt short. Like that feeling you get after eating a piece of candy, you just want more. It did get repetitive. You do a lot of jumping, sliding, and swinging. What keeps it from getting too boring is the sequence that you do the maneuvers must be planned or you will die. Yes, you will die, A LOT.

If you are one of those that has little patience this is definitely not for you. If you enjoy thinking on the fly and stunning jumps and action sequences this game is for you.

Many say that Mirror's Edge is a bad game and is plain horrible. This Is A FULL ON LIE!!!

Mirror's Edge is one of the best games I have played for the PS3 so far!

It has a fun story mode and amazing concept and only those with an extremely weak mind would actually get sick of this game {By sick I mean say all those incorrect and slanderous things about it). The most that happens due to this game is mostly a bit of confusion and becoming dizzy due to the fact that the many runs and tumbles gave you a headache. Overall, this game is absolutely great. The only true negative is the length of the story which is at best 9 hours long. Yet, If one challenges themself with the speedruns and the time trial and hard mode this game never gets old.

At the moment Im only renting this game, but If I could I would surely buy it!

But to all of those who hate repetition and tedious actions {such as repeating speedruns and what not) I would have to say that you should only rent this and save yourself the time.
