    An art rarely reached in games

    Posted
    colander

    This game is a must have, and during a season filled with amazing games, that might leave your funds a little low. There are few games that I believe reach that level of quality that allows them to be called works of art. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are a part of that rare group. And now, Mirror's Edge. That doesn't mean this game is perfect, but it does mean it's something worth playing and owning in your personal collection. I was playing Gears of War 2 like crazy when it came out, but the day Mirror's Edge released, I haven't touched another game. This game is smothered in it's unique style, from its first person gameplay, to the vivid and powerful colors that ink the landscape or in some cases, don't. The dialogue could be better and teeters, if not falls off, the edge of cliche. But the art direction, both in game and in the animated cut scenes (a refreshing departure from in game graphics or CG), is stunningly beautiful. The music is superb and syncs perfectly with every moment. Combat is hard to get down. Running is really the best thing to do but sometimes you're left with the frustrating wall of taking on your enemies which can be difficult to get down and time for less patient gamers. I could rant and rave about how amazing this game is, but really, see for yourself. This will give any other game a run for its money when it comes to the prestige of Game of the Year.

    A Game that is absolutely thrilling to play.

    After reading the reviews and watching videos of gameplay online, there was no way I could pass this game up. The entire game is focused on jumping, leaping, running, and using quick reflexes to scale rooftops and avoid enemies. I like that the game is set in a first person style, but has very little use of weapons or violence to avoid enemies. Its mostly disarming them, and running. You could probably get through the entire game without killing anyone if you really wanted to. There is nothing more thrilling than using a zipline to slide from one skyscraper to another, and then drop and tumble as you go. The scenery is interesting. It has an odd but nice scheme that is pleasant to the eye. And with X-Box 360 you are awarded constant achievements just for completing the levels giving you a higher desire to continue with the game and work harder to complete it. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes the first person style, who wants to shake up their gaming experience a bit.

    Great First Person Action/Strategy Game

    Posted
    Diskothek

    So I enjoy FPS games very much. But when I heard that was a First Person game with no shooting I was intrigued. It's nice to get away from the constant gore that's put out consistently... as much as I still like that! =P This game has you utilize strategy instead of hot lead. Although, despite not being a true FPS, you CAN shoot people. You just have to disarm them first! Health in this game reminds me of Gears of War, in that your health regenerates when hiding from gunfire/melee attacks. But you can die pretty quick as well, 3-4 good hits on you and you're done. I like this though, more realistic than something like Gears of War where you can take about 20 bullets and be halfway in the red. Overall this is a very solid game. The graphics are clean, smooth, and stunning. Inbetween levels/chapters you get a cartoon of the characters in the game that unfolds the story a bit more. The story itself is pretty engaging as well. Controls are simple, but take some getting used to as I doubt you've played a game like this before! And at $20, why not take a chance on it? Chances are you'll enjoy it.

    a definite must!

    I downloaded the demo for this game a few days ago and I must say, THIS GAME ROCKS!! I've always been more of a racer/shooter fan for the most part, only recently started getting into the guitar hero style games, but my goodness, this really is like NOTHING I've ever played before. The graphics are fantastic, story is solid, and gameplay is PHENOMENAL!!! Remember the times playing assassins creed when you barely made that ledge and said "Holy cow that was sick".......well multiply that by about 15 and you have this game. The fact that this is first person just makes it THAT much better. It's "runner vision" aspect greatly aids you when you're on the move, but at the same time it doesn't cheat for you by allowing you to make a certain jump perfectly.....in fact......having good timing is crucial to landing those giant leaps of faith from the rooftop of one building to the bottom of a pole hanging on the side of another. All in all I must say, I will DEFINITELY be buying this game the day it comes out, and I hope my review will help you decide as well. Cheers!

    On the edge of good and meh

    Mirror's Edge is the type of game that you MUST play...once...and then you can throw it away or w/e you want to do with it. The idea is simple...you run, you climb on things, you jump. Simple concept, awesome finishing product...or so i thought. When that awesome idea is put into a game that forces you to a set path, it is no longer what it set out to be. While this game is certaintly innovative, the mechanics would only TRULY work in an open world. The developers have made a nice game that you really do have to play atleast once, because it is something new, but they didn't think of what they could of done with it in the big picture. The storyline is mediocre... your sister is framed for a murder, you have to find out why. The main story lasts about 3-4 hours, and after that you unlock Time Trials and Speedruns for each missions. Basically your doing the same exact thing, no matter what mode your playing. And the entire time you're being told that you're free to run wherever you want, you're also being told to run a certain path. 6.9/10

    Greatest game ever made

    Posted
    XPlay

    I am a huge fan of this game I love it so much. I bought it about 3 days ago to enjoy it as my Christmas Present. It is the best Christmas present I have ever had ever. This game is great the graphics are amazing, the plot is out of this world, and how you can find other ways than just one way to get somewhere you need to be is just extraordinary. This is the greatest game I have ever had in my whole life of my Xbox360. The only down side to Mirrors Edge is that the story is to short. At the end you will be wanting more and more to play on and on in different maps and so on like Assassins Creed. Except the story just finishes off even though I haven't finished the game. I am currently on Chapter 5. Also the difficulty of this game is just extreme. Especially when you die in a couple of hits. I was amazed with this game and I would give it a 5 out of 5. X-Play

    Perfect except for the short story

    The worst thing about this game is it is only a rent for it's 8 hour max gameplay. The controls are slightly strange and need to be changed, but after awhile you'll get used to it and be so into the game you will barely notice. On bigger TVs this game actually is way more exciting due to the first person with no HUD, so it will feel more like the user is doing it. After beating the game there is downloadable content for time trials, but that wasn't much to keep me entertained. In conclusion, this game is fun and worth twenty bucks if you have a big TV or friends that you can beat in time trials, otherwise it is just a perfect rent.

    stashs696

    this game is the best game i've played inyears. this is one game you'll definately want to buy, not rent, because no matter what you do it never gets boring. this game also gets you hooked once you get used to the controls: (LB)-jump (LT)-crouch/let go of objects (RT)-open doors/shoot (Y)-disarm (A)-interact with buttons and stuff although these controls are confusing at first, you get really used to them. i actually bought the game from Wal-mart, but its the same price but it doesn't matter. the graphics a most definately next gen. more people need to know about this game and buy it. DEFINATELY.

    hardest game but one of the funnest games...EVER!!

    imcooler

    i first started off thinking it should have been better but then i realized they don't really tell you where to go so it is mostly a independent game which i just oh so happened to like. the story wasn't that good but the gameplay was awesome!!! there are so many moves to string together! i also liked how getting achievements were easy. the graphics are amazing in 1080 HD. i wish though that you got to choose guy or girl and choose different clothes but the only problem is that it is first person so that wouldn't work out. the game is hard yet fin and i loved it!!!!!!!!!

    EA has another hit!

    Posted
    oonshadowman

    EA has yet again another hit this time taking the place of Faith in the game Mirrors Edge. Faith being a runner (someone who delivers messages) gets chased by blue suits as they call them if i remember correctly. Fun game its fast paced. Kind of made me dizzy here and there but u will want this game bad. It is by far a great game its just simply beautiful and i dont think any game will ever be able to pass the innovative creativity. Simply put...Buy the game u won't regret it!

    Original

    ClevelandBrowns70

    This is one of the most original games I have ever played. It is a only first person game that I have ever played that doesn't focus on shooting. It is mainly based on just running and jumping and climbing, which is a much needed break from all of the fps out there today. The game is very beautiful, with vibrant colors. If your more into games with lots of weapons and lots of shooting this probably isn't that game for you.

    This game is a very fast paced addicting game. calling this game a first person shooter would be insane, because most of the game includes complexe manuvers for dissarming enimes and if you choose to use the weapon (that you just dissarmed) you are just left with whats in the clip. This is one of the best games i have EVER played and i play a lot.

    First of its kind

    Gamer753

    Ive played the demo for this game and its awesome! You may think its stupid because you run around, but that why its fun. there are to many games were all you do is shoot people, that this is a great change! if you like parkour/freerunning, this is a great buy for you! It is the first of its kind and i have a feeling more games are going to be made based on parkour

    CelticsFreaK

    This game is pretty much one of the best games that EA has created due to its amazing graphics and fantastic gameplay. I highly recommend this game because it's probably one of the most enjoyable games I've ever played. Basically don't listen to the people who write bad reviews because they have no idea what they're talking about. This game has it all.

    mpc357

    Mirror's edge is an awesome game, it is a fresh new concept for video games, based around agility and disarming as opposed to shoot em' up The game is also accompanied by stunning graphics. while standing on roofs of buildings and jumping gaps dont be surprised if you experience vertigo, it is perfectly natural for this game.....

    When i first got the game it was great i ran though the first level's collecting achievements for my 360, it started easy but never ended difficult. The game could have taught more actions and made some aspects have been under developed. I would wait for a sale or wait until you have all of the other games that appeal to you.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    the controls are fun to play around with and jumping off the tops of buildings onto other ones is just adrenaline pumping. its a very fast paced game and it gets you moving or you die. the only down side to this game would have to be the short story line. i was reall dissa pointed when i beat it in 2 days

    Nick2012

    The demo was great, but I wasn't really sure if I wanted to buy it or not, but then, I figured that it wouldn't hurt to try a different game, and as it turns out, it is the 2nd best game I've ever played. People who are skeptical abiut buying this game, just do it, because you will be happy you did.

    I've only played the demo of this game, but it was so addictive that I had to play it over 5+ times (I lost count). You can go about what you do in the game a different way each time. I recommend you give this game a shot, even if you're like me and only play fast-paced shooter games.
