The first 10 minutes: Mirror's Edge

The first 10 minutes: Mirror's Edge

Our new best friend BombTux also sent us the first 10 minutes of Mirror's Edge. Well, not really the first 10 minutes since they are the same as the demo that I hope all of you have already tried, so enjoy what happens right after that. So good.

Sweet, but it doesn't look like I'll finish Valkyria Chronicles in time to play it, and I just recently got ABSORBED in this little game called Theresia. Gotta get the word out--almost no one even knows it exists

Wow. Need this game. Now. I was imaging what a multiplayer in this game would be like. Like capture the flag, with other runners.

Wow, this game looks better than I expected =D

Looks like another game for Christmas

The game is great, not game of the year, but for me the best new franchise in first person gaming. EA has announced that they will release new levels begin 2009, officially to explain the story more, but I think they just cut some levels from the original game so they can earn some extra money on DLC.
I would love to see multiplayer as some sort of race against other players, while being able to tackle your opponents. It's a shame that there isn't any multiplayer, because it could have potential.
Anyhow: This is a must-have game of you want to play something different.

Its great at times, and horrible at times.
Example, i first played the full version at an early morning when i just got it in my mailbox, and i HATED it, not like the demo at all which i loved.
Easy maneuvers failed due to being off with the aim just a few pixels, and everything was just awkward.

Then i played it later on during the day, when i had actually, u know, woken up..
Omg what a great game, smooth, perfect, wonderful.
Then i played it later at night when i was really tired, omg what a horrible game, frustrating, cant even do the simplest of wallruns.
Then i played it the next day after a cup of coffee, omg what a great game..

But it was way way too short, took me 5 hours to complete, and i wasnt really rushing through it (well, as little as you can NOT rush through a running game).
So in that sense, not worth €60, at all.. The time trial modes are quite boring, since you are all alone, no story, no enemies, no nothing. It feels like one of those old games you played to death to just get better scores or times, because there was nothing better to play.

Well this winter there are soooo many great games, and i dont think i'll be playing this anymore after completing it. Even though i really really loved the art style and flowing feel of it.
In short of my mini-review, the downfall of an otherwise SUPERB game, is that it was just too incredibly short.

just got the game and played for 4 hours or so, and I falled countless times. this game is the greatest example of try & fail, but it is good enough to keep people trying :)
if you pursue extremely fluid non-stop action challenge, you should try it; if not, go next.

the first ten minutes? so you are showing the whole game? :P

(i heard it was incredibly short)
Commented on 2008-11-14 11:12:21
It's about 7 hrs, excluding time trials.

Looks amazing, demo is fantastic. Immersion is top notch, graphics absolutely STUNNING (sans the ugly looking characters).

Gameplay is smooth, controls are tight...the layout of the controls is PERFECT...the flow is brilliant etc etc.

This is a sneak peek of what games could be like in a few years time, it's one of those few games that actually has the balls to atleast attempt at progression rather than the usual "safe bet". Great stuff!

Been having a great time with the demo. I'll be picking this up as soon as I'm done with GOW2.

It's gonna roooock!!!!!!!

hey i played this game at this years EA BE THE ONE and the time trial is increasingly addictive, I even grabbed the fastest time and went up against Sebastian Foucan from Casino Royale who was there at the event to promote free running - oh I beat him too by the way haha

After playing the demo I really like. Great game.

    Sdarts @MikeManiac61: Ocarina of Time innovated on a lot of things when it came out, from both technical and gameplay departments. Today, if you exclude Nostalgia, it's great, but not the best Zelda game. (5 minutes ago)
