These two words define one of last year’s most innovative titles, Mirror’s Edge. I am a huge fan of first person perceptive titles and the occasional third person titles. Every once in a while a title comes around that changes the way that...

Mirror’s Edge delivers a solid performance for its first attempt but it wobbles in some parts. The game can be infuriating at times due to trial and error. Too much is asked of Faith. She’s a Runner but the game treats her like an 80’s...

Mirror's Edge PC is a direct port of the console game, and my thoughts are right in line with Brian's as far as the overall game goes (Click Here for that review). The levels are hindered by lack of direction causing lots of poor decisions being...

Mirror’s Edge was a tricky beast to review. It brought a ton of new stuff to the table but at the same time it was hampered by clichéd problems such as trial and error gameplay, an erratic difficulty curve and a save system, and so on. I could go...

Mirror's Edge tries to be quirky, cool, artsy, and different, and in many ways it succeeds. But despite a smooth engine and inventive gameplay, there's just something about it which isn't quite as compulsive as one might have hoped....

How can this be? The games are identical inside and out; same story about protagonist Faith, an illegal ‘runner’, or messenger, trying to save her sister in an unjust and unlawful city. Dialog is exactly the same, gameplay is the...
