3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, 22 Jan. 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mirror's Edge (PS3) (Video Game)
Mirror's Edge is a game that although is well thought out, I find a few flaws with in general.

The story is pretty good: you play Faith, a free-runner who delivers highly sensitive information by running, vaulting and swinging from building to building using ziplines, poles, and her agility.

The graphics are sharp (on LED it's a little eyewateringly sharp) and crisp although slightly too bright at times leading to eye pain and headaches on occasion.

Gameplay itself is quite complicated and difficult to manuoever at times as you play in first person you can't really see where you're (Faith) is going to land. Some leaps and bounds are so incredibly tricky you might end up re-doing it fifty times and only end up managing on chance rather than skill. Unfortunately combat isn't a thing in the game that is focused heavily on, as you will find Faith doing more running and escaping.

For me, I found it hard to get into the story as it was too much falling from one false move and too much being killed far too easily. It takes SO much work to get the right moves and it takes alot of focus to remember your surroundings when you're looking at things in first person perspective.

It's playable but not the greatest game I've played on PS3.
