100 Word Review - E6 - Mirror's Edge

Mirror's Edge

Genre - Action, Adventure

Metascore - 81%

Developer - DICE

Other Games by Developer- Battlefield 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Edgar's Playtime - 9 hours

Mirror's Edge is a kind of negation of the first person shooter genre. It is first person alright, but you are advised to shoot as little as possible when you get a gun, while you try to navigate through a highly detailed and exquisitely designed skyscraper city, unveiling an assassination plot by running - a LOT - and using and exceptional set of parkour skills to avoid obstacles and enemies. It's an amazing, different, immersive and engaging twist to the first person theme that pleads to be lived and is only marred by the long loading times in the elevator rides.

Edgar's Score - 9/10
