Good

Too short

I would have given it a 9 if it wasn't for how short it was, and probably a 10 if it was a 25$ downloadable on PSN. It needed double the levels and much more roof top content than indoors and hanging from pipes. The crain scene was outstanding, it needs more of that content that actually gives you a rush when consuming it.

A point system would of been nice too, points for running without stopping, jumps off objects, slides, run-by-melee-knockouts.

I'm a shooter fan. You gave me guns. Mistake, made the combat trival. There was no incentive whatsoever to melee.

I only care for playing through a game once, and in storyline mode. So I probably would of given a higher score if I cared about replay value, as it triples the play time at the very least with all the time trials and trying to get all the bags.

Breakthough game!

This is how the Matrix games should have been made. This game is all about evasion, and balancing fighting with running. It's like no other game I have ever played.

The game is not all about being shot at though. There are also some tricky acrobatic moves you must master to get to places no one would expect a person to be able to access.

A good story about Big Brother government, though a little vague and detached feeling.

Much like Portals, Mirror's Edge is a small gem of a game with only about 7 hours of main story gameplay. But it's a game that I hope will influence more games to come.

Great Rent

This is a great game for renting, it keeps you interested pretty much the whole time; that being said, IT'S NOT WORTH BUYING. I beat it in 3 sittings, and I can only sit and play a game for so long at a time. It was literally at the point where the credits were rolling and I said, "Really?! That was it?!" But if you're interested in an amazingly unique game, then pick this up. As for people saying it's too hard...maybe you're just not good enough...
