Mirrors Edge

Postby KIO on Thu Apr 02, 2009 10:10 am

You must have heard of it.
A first-person free running game. First of a kind, I suppose.
First of all, the graphics is simply beautiful, its a work of art that runs even on my machine, which isnt a work of art. The amount of detail in environment is amazing, and the actual "first person" view is the most realistic I have ever seen. YOu should give it a try, I completed the whole campaign yesterday:) Now im gonna do some time trials there...

Maybe the game has beatiful graphics but, i saw so many videos and it still doesnt makes sense to me. You have a pakage that you have to bring to somewhere, and a lot of cops are following you.... ok, you have to escape, thats all? :upset:

A very simple parkour game, but nice graphics, thats what is see from that game :(

Nah, they cut off all of the rubbish to do with delivering packages.. Now the packages are just extra items to be found on the map for the sake of it. There is some storyline, you kinda follow it. But most of the game is running after bad guys, running away from bad guys, running away from bad guys on helicopters, running away from bad guys with big guns... You get a fight every now and again, where you either end up doing quite a cool succession of jumps and killing 4-5 armed guys one by one, or you just fucking die at their feet.
I liked the game because it gives you the sense of speed, chase, etc. Its not so good on videos - you have to play it. You also feel the city around you - its beautiful:)

EDIT: I have just tried the Time trial mode, where you race through some path for time - ITS FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE!... Well, I got bronze-silver on a couple of them, but gold is impossible, really.. i want to see someone do it.

Yeah, its hard to get a smooth disarm though, i dont like the "wack the button when the gun is red" technique, so i just end up jumping around them, landing on their heads or kicking their balls.
Btw, I saw a couple of the world record time trials on some maps, its quite doable actually. Takes a lot of practice though.
