for the first time a game has met all my expectations. the graphics are amazing and the story will have you gripped. the only problem is you can die so easily if you press the wrong button (or the even the right button at the wrong time). but i can't really whine about that because you don't really want a game that is too easy. i love it when you jump around flawlessly from one place to another and when you have to find your way out of a place where the exit is about 100 ft above you. overall this game is the best i have played yet and i am waiting for another game like this.
Finally a game developer that has the courage to make an original and innovative game. In a world over run with your typical shooters we have Mirror's Edge, an FPS really without the shooter part. Not to say that you CAN'T shoot enemies in the game it's just that shooting people isn't the point of the game. You're actually encouraged to run away rather than fight and fight only when absolutely necessary. And whenever you do obtain a gun you have a very limited amount. The one con I would say the game has is I thought it to be a little short. It would have been a perfect game if they added about 3 more levels to the single player story. But all in all this game is awesome, add it to your game Q right now!! Meanwhile, I'll keep my fingers crossed we see a Mirror's Edge 2.
