This review is from: Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
What can I say, when it came out I wasn't all that bothered about this game, having seen the reviews for it and looking deeper finding the trailer i though it would be worth the 30 quid i paid for it.
Having said this i found the game at the start AMAZING! the combat system has come under alot of scrutiny but i feel it is excellently adaped, alot of people say it isn't, but what they are not thinking is the character is a slim small woman, of course you are going to not be able to run at full speed when carrying a gun or have the physical strength to wrestle a guard, the shooting isn't great but then the game tries to if anything to steer you away from using weapons and to use the surroundings to your advantage, running up walls etc.
The story mode is way to short for my liking, 4 hours seems to be the max that i must have spent on this game.
The racing mode, grows more and more frustrating as time wears on, when trying to find different/quicker routes you mostly end up splatterd on the pavement 90 storeys below.
I would say this game is a must play, probably best to rent before though.
