Mirror's Edge - Different idea for a game but many guns

AdvantagesDifferent, a chance to try free running. Satisfactory when you succeed a move!

DisadvantagesDodgy controls, short game, too many guns.

"==Mirror's Edge== Mirror's Edge is a game set in future where you play as a girl named Faith. The game is set in the future where surveillance is high in the city, people are heavily resticted in their activities but Faith has found 'running', delivering data and packages between people, an illegal activity in the city. Further, a murder charge has been brought against her sister who did work for the police and the plot thickens to get the to bottom ..." Read review

Living Life On The Mirror's Edge!

AdvantagesOriginal Gameplay, Clean And Crisp Visuals And Plenty Of Fun.

DisadvantagesWeak Story, Steep Learning Curve And High Difficulty Level.

"==========Mirror's Edge Xbox 360========== Are you brave enough to take a leap of Faith into the unknown? *Introduction* Mirror's Edge is an original and unique new title, heavy influenced by both 'Parkour' and 'Free Running'. Parkour (a French word, literally translated means-the art of 'Movement') is a type of urban sport which founding principles are for a human to get from A to B, in the shortest time possible-with no tools. The runners ..." Read review

Mirrors Edge lacks a certain sheen

AdvantagesNovel concept, decently showcased

DisadvantagesShallow, short and doesn't deliver.

"Mirrors Edge is one of the few original ideas floating amongst the wealth of console game releases this year, and, although it rather disappoints in terms of the actual game, it does hint at something good and the concept has a lot of potential to inspire some possibly great games in the near future. STORYLINE 3/10: Well, what can I say. Not much in all honesty. The writers are either non-existant or they have written some hugely in-depth ..." Read review

Mirror's Edge - To fly is to be human

AdvantagesGreat experience, great graphics, good plot.

DisadvantagesShort plot, no multiplayer, no real depth.

"_"Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract_ I'm reminded of the old days of the 80's /90's when virtual reality was the latest fad, where you can immerse yourself in an existence created from the creative process of a computer...where your hands become appendages in a polygon landscape with low-textured enigmas interact with you to save the day. The freedom of this exciting experience was lauded ..." Read review

Mirrors edge on reflection SEE I MADE A FUNNY!

Advantagesa new idea and experimental

Disadvantagesshort and repetative and dissapointing

"...i was quite dissapointed with Mirrors edge. After playing the demo i thought it had the potential to be a really fun experience. Being a video game fanatic (the type who rarely see the outdoors, it is a scary place) i feel i have earned the right to judge, or at least moan. First things first, the game itself is very short and completable within a day if you clear your schedule or in my case can be bothered to get out of bed at a reasonable hour. ..." Read review

I have to admit, I returned to this game...

AdvantagesOriginal and different, and somehow addictive

DisadvantagesCan be irritating at (most) parts and is a very short game

"When I first borrowed Mirror's Edge from a friend who really enjoyed playing it, I quickly grew to dislike it. It was irritating and frustrating, the combat is dreadfully shocking (and I have to admit I do love a good shooter; this is certainly not that, but then again it's not meant to be) and the story-line is, to put it colloquially, pants. The fact that the game is so short was at first a relief to me; I was glad I'd beaten it and could take it ..." Read review

Must have game

AdvantagesVery cool, relatively easy story mode, excellent extra features i.e. speed runs, time trials

DisadvantagesDanger of computer game rage.

"...to me by a friend, Mirrors edge was one the first purchases for my new xbox 360 and had me obsessed for the next two months. Mirrors edge is a very good take on free running and with it stylish graphics, use of colour and arty cut scenes makes for a very entertaining game. Initially the game can be slightly tricky as it can involve a bit of quick button changing, but once you get to grips with it you can put together a whole heap of free flowing ..." Read review

Mirrors Edge

AdvantagesNice effort at a new concept

DisadvantagesRiddled with bugs and flaws

"Mirrors Edge is a fine game, Don't let me say it's not. But Mirrors Edge is a perfect example of a good game overcome with flaws. The idea and plot are original and very compelling, the kind of plot that would make a good movie and gameplay that challenges the tide of mainstream mediocrity that is poured forth from Game manufacturers these days. The first Person aspect Of the game is a welcome break; such games that allowed such ranges of movement ..." Read review

Mirrors Edge Edge Review (Xbox 360) Review with images

AdvantagesAwesome gmeplay, Interesting Plot, Cool Visuals

DisadvantagesToo Short, Very Frsutrating

"...ever used in war games. Mirrors Edge however, does something completely different with this system. While it is a first person game, Mirrors Edge is not a war game. Instead, it is a game about free running. A game about running across rooftops and making ridiculous jumps. And does this new take on the first person perspective work? Yes, it does indeed. Mirrors Edge take place in a dystopian city, where the government has gained control and restricted ..." Read review

Mirror's edge an exiting and original game

Advantagesoriginal, exiting

"mirrors edge is an original game which is exiting to play. there are many cool different stunts you can do such as high drops, scaling buildings, and jumping to and from buildings, climb trough ventilation systems and there is also many cool ways to disarm a for. The game is not that hard but i have found that some people have difficulty finding out what do to. if you can think fast, asses situations easy and figure out what to do then this is the ..."

Great singleplayer story although lacks any multiplayer functions

AdvantagesGreat, lost-lasting singleplayer

DisadvantagesNo multiplayer

"Mirrors Edge has a good storyline and is full of action from start to finish despite the start and finish line being fairly close to each other. I did not at any point find the game repetitive and never found the game TOO easy. There are also a range of achievements both hard and easy to complete although the main negative point is the online play. There is no multiplayer mode for Mirrors Edge although despite this, the game has many playing hours ..." Read review

Mirrors Edge Review

AdvantagesGood plot and very realistic gameplay.

DisadvantagesToo quick to complete and also the game was very dull in colour.

"This was a very good and creative game. Well that is, within the plot line. The graphics were ok but it really lacked colour within it and the ability to use weaponry i feel slightly ruined the game. This game was very well made and thought through however, it could have benefitted greatly by haveing a longer story line. The ability to go back and do a time trial of every level i felt was pointless unless you are completely obsessed with ..." Read review
