Product Description

In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed and now you are being hunted. You are a Runner called Faith - and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story. Mirror's Edge delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith's world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous. Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain, in this city, you will learn how to run.

...run away from another game that will try to slip SecuROM 7xx into our computers under the excuse of DRM.

...run away from another game that will keep spying and reporting on everyone who ever plays it, even long after completely uninstalling it.

...run away from another game that will expire on you after only some months, after a couple of installations.

...run away from another EA game designed with insatiable greed in the mind and no respect whatsoever for its gamers/customers.

...run away.

And, in the best spirit of parkour, do not look back.

PS:
In the best tradition of EA's arrogance, any complaining customer is filed under "Pirate" to avoid addressing the issues raised. What is really ironic is that, in fact, pirates have nothing to complain about: they are probably too busy playing the game - without having to jump through flaming loops, like paying customers do!

Once I installed the right graphics card, I had a lot of fun playing this game. I found it easy enough to get the hang of and found it shot my adrenaline right up there when I ran into a bit of trouble!

The basic format is you're running across roof tops, jumping, sliding, falling, rolling and occationally you end up fighting a cop or two, though generally it's better to simply run past the law instead of engaging them. It is not excessively violent, especially if you choose to run instead of engage in combat. What I think I liked most about recieving damage is if you keep yourself out of trouble for a few seconds, you return to full health. No searching for powerups and health packs, which is old and annoying. You do have to find some runner bags, but the game does not depend on this - you can still finish if you never get more than the first bag (which is a freebee) and all bags have a mark near by to indicate you oughta look more closely at your surroundings. This is helpful because you are on the run and you don't always have time to investigate every nook and cranny around you.

You also don't have to collect lives. You can die a hundred times, reset to the last checkpoint and go again. No playing for three hours, dying on your last life and getting sent back to the beginning. The frustration level in this game is low, but the challenges are still interesting and, well, a challenge. My only complaint with the game is it was too short. I finished it in ten hours. Would love to see a second installment that goes on longer. The concept is very cool and kept me on the edge of my seat for most of the game.

You can't deny that this game is very innovative. The way the gameplay is makes it one of the most original game of 2008. The feeling you get playing is very immersive. You don't want to stop running!

Another great feature of this game is the video sequences between the levels. They are in a cartoon-ish style. I think it makes a great contrast between the gameplay.

But this game isn't perfect. For one, it is very short. If you are an hardcore gamer, you will be finished in 5 to 6 hours. The game is best played in small sessions, I think. At least, there is a time trial mode (now with downloadable maps)

Another shortcoming is the combat. Some people really dislike it. I don't think it's that bad. It is more of a "try and error" style, because you can die lots of time before getting the timing right and finding the best path to kill all the bad guys. And don't hesitate to use the guns! I think a more traditionnal style of fighting would have been even more immersive.

In short, the game is very fun and innovative, but short.

You will like this game a lot or you won't at all. The first person view is pretty daring for a platformer but after getting used to it, you wouldn't change it. The goal is simple, you go from point A to point B running (whatever the surface), jumping and evading the enemies as much as possible. You can disarm and use the weapons against your enemies but it cripples you so much that it can't be considered effective. Graphically, it's very stylized but the environment variety is a little lacking (a lot of building roofs)

Overall, a good game to that will entertain you for 8 - 10 hours.

Pro:
Great game, really fun and thrilling

Con:
SECUROM - Still cannot believe EA puts that crap in each and every package. SECUROM DOESN'T STOP NOR HELP STOP GAME COPYING, if anything, it helps it. So why hinder paying clients??? Unless they want to spy on their clients... But I'd get ahead of myself there... ;-P

What hits EA sales most is not their games quality... It's that SECUROM spyware! That's one great game, but it will remain on my 360 and like all EA games, will stay VERY FAR AWAY from my PC.

EA - Greedy bunch with no respect for the customer, nor the developers...
