So I got to play Mirror's Edge at a friend's house today and I must say that it was absolutely fantastic.

From the opening cinematic showcasing the brilliant art style transitioning into the fast-paced tutorial (no slow waiting for dialogue or info screens) and finally into the brilliant use of first-person free running and parkour. . . . I was very impressed.

The music was fantastic as well. It completely fit the mood and feel of what little of the game I got to play and watch.

So I was wondering, has anyone else here given it a shot? I've been wishing I had a 360 for a while now, but alas I don't and can't buy Mirror's Edge, but it should come out for PC, so hopefully I'll be okay.

It looks extremely fun, but it also looks like a rental/wait for the price to drop game.

I really need to rent it though :x

The use of color was quite neat, too.

I loved how every building you entered had a brilliantly radiant color scheme. It just looked so crisp and clean. Fantastic.

I played the demo and I wasn't impressed at all. Definately will not be buying it. The soundtrack is awesome though. Still Alive gets a regular play from me now.

Are you serious...?

Mirror's Edge. Beyond Good and Evil. Tombraider. Portal. Jade Empire. Perfect Dark. Silent Hill 3. Ms Pac-Man.

I pity you.

Wally, pretty sure a PC version is coming out in early 09.

I think the game looks really cool, but no way a 5 or 6 hour game according to IGN's review is worth $60. Probably a good idea that most of you are renting or waiting for a price drop.

I own Mirror's Edge and I love it. I don't love the story mode, but the race mode is tons of fun, running around and discovering the fastest way across the rooftops. I do not regret my purchase at all.

Not to mention No Ones Lives Forever and Metroid. I pity him too.

Ah, nice. Early 2009 isn't that far away. But the short story is a bummer. Oh well. The friend who showed it to me was playing through the game for his 3rd time, so he didn't seem to mind.

No idea how I could have forgotten Metroid.

There are plenty of fantastic games with female characters. I can't believe someone wouldn't play them solely for that reason.

It's not like you'll get cooties through the controller.

~loses any shread of respect I've ever had for you. + Ignore list's~

Mirror's Edge looks sick, if I get a 360 for Christmas, this'll probably be on of the first games I check out on it...

Not so fast. I was going to say that I won't be playing it because I don't want to play as an Asian girl.

Aww epic posts are gone :(


My English teacher always tells us "Everything in moderation. Except heroin. NO HEROIN."

So I figured cocaine is okay.
