by Runner619 BEST GAME EVER
Saw a video on Youtube. Never though I would get addicted to it. I love this game. This game is for everyone.
Rated 8 out of 10 by thatsecondguy really, really frustrating
First this is a really good idea for a game and the actual game was pretty decent. The only problem was how freaking frustrating this game was I would get to parts that would take me over 30 tries just to get past it. Most of the time it's not the running parts though. Just the running part of this game is amazing. The controls are pretty good but can be a little sloppy at times too. The one thing I didn't really like was the shooting parts. They were dang near IMPOSSIBLE at points. The aiming system made it hard to shoot far away enemies and they never really tell you how much ammo you have left. You just have to hope that when you charge a guy that has a shotgun you have enough ammo to put him to sleep. Also you have very little health and no real way to dodge bullets which makes gun battles even more frustrating. Overall it is a really cool game that everyone should at least try. I would recommend normal difficulty to very patient people and easy to not-so-patient people.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Francisco FL Mirror's Edge: A Success
This games has truly been one of the most enchanced games i have yet to play. It's bright colors and amazing action sequences naturally captured my attention. The trailor didn't inspire at me first, but when i played the demo i was thinking "Wow, this is ten times better than i expected!" I thought the demo would suck as much as the trailor, but it didn't. I was so enchanted with this game, i actually bought the game just to play the rest of where the demo stopped and it was astonishing! This game: Mirrors edge is a complete success, the studio should be proud of themselves, the customers should acknowledge this game. This HUD-less game really makes you feel that you are Faith, the runner and protagonist of this action packed video game of 2008: Mirror's Edge. I enjoyed this game so much I want to tell other people how much I loved it and gave out my opinions. Mirror's Edge is NOT the perfect game out there, but it is the best so far.
Rated 8 out of 10 by thatonegamerchick great buy!
So here's the scoop... The storyline leaves a lot to be desired and the controls could've been better but other than that... I LOVED IT! The vibrant and brilliant colors used really set off the already amazing graphics and the whole idea of the game is awesome. The shooting/fighting parts were a bit difficult as were some of the maneuvers you have to do to get to the next level but, if your up for a challenge then this is the game for you. I liked the idea for the objective finder. It makes you use your head and be creative with what you can do. The addition of more characters to the game could've given it more dimension. However, having just a few characters gives it a more personal feel. The first person point of view coupled with the graphics makes the whole experience feel so real. And since it's called 'Mirrors Edge' I should at least be able to see Faith in a building window. She's real on the cover of the game and she's a cartoon IN the game... I just wanna see who i'm playing as. All in all it's a great game and i'm glad I bought it!
Rated 1 out of 10 by wastintime You could play this or... you could cut off your own arm.
The cover looks really cool. That is about the best thing that can be said about Mirror's Edge. Boring doesn't even begin to describe it, this is a game that was meant for consoles like NES or SNES where there weren't many control buttons and to make the game challenging and not end in 5 minutes you had to make it impossible to make a jump so that it took 3 hours of playing to get past an otherwise simple level. Here is Mirror's Edge in a nutshell: you run jump a little... ooh there's a cop run away... great we lost the cops... more running. Couple with this with the way substandard graphics, and terrible controls and you have a recipe for the biggest waste of money on PS3. I humbly beseech anyone who reads this: if you feel you just have to try this game, don't even waste the money renting it, just go to PS store and download the demo so you can find out just how terrible it is for yourself.
Rated 10 out of 10 by doxxy very nice game!
Mirrors Edge is so good I just cant even try to explain it! It's just total nonstop action. the easyest way to explain it is that it is not heart-stopping, it's heart-racing. The whole time you play this game your adrenaline is rushing like crazy and when you finally get done playing it or pause it you feel like you've actually been exerting energy! The graphics are not the best of the video games we've seen from the ps3 and 360 but the controls and playability are amazing. It is sort of hard to get used to the controls at first but once you know them its like you are actually the person in the game, especially when its in first person and your arms and legs fly out in front of you when you jump across skyscrapers. I have played this whole game and I hav'nt found one boring spot in it. Some things, like the stomach-lurching feeling you get when you fall ALL the way to the ground wears of but it still is entertaining! One really nice thing I found out about is you dont have to go rent the game, because you can just download the demo! I, myself, this this is a very good game and once you try it you'll agree.

Mirror's edge is a must pick up for late 2008. Just from what i have seen in the demo on the ps3 store, it is by far the most inventive game of the year. Any fans of the sport of parkour or "free running" will fall in love with this game and our main character faith. With amazing graphics and score, you feel as if you really are on the rooftops of this massive city fighting and running for this place you love. With simple controls, any pick up and play gamer can enjoy this amazing game in less then an hour. Yes, some will say that the gameplay might get a bit repetitive, but with the game not out yet it's hard to say. Personally, i find that the fun gameplay, amazing graphics, and engaging musical score, I find it hard not to love this game. NOTE: Anyone that gets motion sickness to easy... stay away! This is worse then blair witch blown up on the side of a barn!
Rated 10 out of 10 by James Quevedo Great game
I first heard about this game from some friends of mine who I do parkour with. They were all saying how awesome it was going to be because there isnt any game dedicated to the basics of parkour. So I bought it. the controls take a little getting used to but the story is great the interactive environments are phenomenal, and I am amazed by the datail they put into the movement. When I play Its like im outside training. It is the closest thing possible to actually doing parkour I have ever found. Other games have reffered to using parkour but alot of them are only doing backflips or climbing simple walls. The fact that this game puts so many actual parkour movements in it and they are done properly is truly awesome. Some gamers might not find this game to be so great because its not the normal pick up a gun and run around shooting people. It makes you think and react quickly and always observe the environment your in. I would recomend it for everyone to at least try because this game is a whole new experience. If youve played one call of duty youve played them all but there is nothing that can compare to Mirrors Edge.
Rated 8 out of 10 by r3run23 Gives it a new twist in gaming
All the games are starting to copy each other and it get's dull after awhile. Call of Duty games, Medal of Honor games, Bad Company games, all the 1st person shooters are, in general, the same. They all have the same color palette, you shoot from 1st person with usually the same weapons and it eventually get's old. Pros: Well this game gives you something fresh. It's stunning at first and it captivates you. You feel like you're a parkourer because it's so immersive since you're running in 1st person perspective. It's kind of like parkouring in Assassin's Creed but in 1st person. Cons: It doesn't give you anything new after playing the game through. It doesn't really give you much any new skills to be more agile and such. If this game incorporated some kind of assassination missions or just turned this whole game into a assassin game, it would be epic in my opinion. Or even just giving you throwing knives or any stealth weapons so you're not at a disadvantage against the enemies you face with guns would be a great addition. Overall this game makes you want to come back to it after playing other main streamline games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by LazyGam3rGurU Great Game!!!
I was not sure about this game when I seen the trailer. I decided to try it and it was the best experience I have had in a while. Its different from other games, it was fun, and definitely interesting. I am not saying it was easy but it can get annoying at times. You may have to do some things multiple times but if you don't get fed up and quit it is definitely worth picking up and playing. I would definitely recommend this game to others. I know some parts can be a pain. I still could not put this game down until I finished. Faith's shoes were also slammin'. This game would be awesome to play online. The colors and graphics in this game were awesome as well. It wasn't too long where you were like enough already and it wasn't short to say that is it. If you want a game that's entertaining get Mirror's Edge. You won't be disappointed. I guarantee it!
