Mirror's Edge (360, PS3, PC)

Check out the "next big thing." I've been looking forward to seeing this in action since I've read about it in EGM a few months ago. This free-roaming-yet-linear game is very reminiscent of "Run Lola Run," as you need to almost constantly be on the move and make split second decisions, plus some very impressive acrobatics. Check it!

Looks cool, although I find the choice of a first-person perspective odd.

hmmm....rumored exclusive DLC for the Playstation Network...

http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/3549.html

And now, here's the hottest rumor that has been circulating throughout the Internet: it seems the September issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine will include a very large feature article on DICE's Mirror Edge, and there's one surprising tidbit of information that may surprise some of you... Apparently, DICE - an EA-owned development studio - is using the PlayStation 3 as the lead platform for the game, and they're also talking about exclusive downloadable content for the PlayStation Network. Obviously, we won't be able to confirm this until we see the exact evidence in the magazine, but here's a leaked image that may serve as preliminary proof. If this is true, it means EA is clearly still trying to regain lost ground in the eyes of most PS3 owners.


I don't see anything about exclusive DLC, but it does mention the "lead platform" part, so maybe it's on the next page.

I had the exact same thought.

I loved all the jumping and climbing in Crackdown and Assassin's Creed, so you know I'm all over this.

I figured District B13 would make a cool game someday.

Stupid cops can't even shoot someone at point blank range.

Judging from that footage, you never have to worry about bullets actually hitting you.

Demo was awesome, I had a hard time finding it on the PSN store, I had to go find it by searching for titles and looking for mirrors edge, it was showing up in newest demos,

Game is awesome, fantastic visuals, great easy controls. gameplay is alot of fun, I love the feeling you get of just running and jumping and sliding under everything,

This game is fantastic. And Rallisport Challenge is one of the best games.

Played the demo this morning once getting home from work. Agree, this game is really fun. Will have to give it another run-through, I have the hang of most of the controls, but not all of them. I want to try taking out the first set of bad guys you run into after you jump out of the air duct.

The demo was pretty sweet. It looks great and the controls felt intuitive for the most part. It felt like a 1st person Prince of Persia.

I thought for sure this game would give me a huge case of motion sickness, as most FPS tend to do. I managed to play through the entire demo headache free! I think this means it's a purchase for me.

Next year of course. I'll be too busy with the other holiday games when this comes out.

I didn't care for the demo at all, with the controls being the main culprit. They felt very unintuitive to me, having to use the triggers for everything and their uses changing due to the context-sensitive nature of the gameplay. I was having to stop and think about what does what rather than simply being able to play the game. Wasn't really fond of the first-person view for this sort of game, either, and there were a handful of other little things that bugged me. Not a game I'll be buying, for certain.

I'm confused. What does one have to do with the other?

There is no way I can play this on a console but I might give the demo a try.

I loved the demo, but I'll wait for reviews before I decide when to buy. If it turns out to be a five hour game or one that gets repetitive, then I'll wait to pick it up used somewhere.

I've been pretty impressed with the demo so far. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for reviews on this title.

I had mixed thoughts before playing the demo but the demo was very fun and I can see the potential. It's still not a buy for me, depending on the length, might be a fun rental though. It reminds me a lot of the Matrix (movie,not the game), as it is more designed to run from the enemy instead of fighting them head on. The controls will definitely take some time to get used to but I will play the demo a few more times.
