A new 4 minute gameplay video of Mirror's Edge for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Please use view video link at bottom if video is not working.
that about sums it up. The rush that this game is going to provide while playing just screams replay value. Definitely a must buy.
Okay I was lukewarm on this title before, but that was tight. I just hope I don't get motion sick playing it.
yeah i really like the premise and the gameplay and the graphics have this wicked realism look to them, not bad at all
This game looks boring, have seen the same footage over and over. Same environment doesn't seem like there is different rooftops or maps. I think this will be a big let down and am sick of seeing it touted as must have game. It will be crap just like every other hyped up game.
have you seen the screenshots or any of the interviews? The developers have stated on numerous occasions that you'll be placed in environments vastly different from one another, though you are likely to end up at some high point at one time or another. I've also seen footage of Faith delivering messages at night...that should be a trip.
It looks beautiful. I wanna see more levels though. I hope they really mix it up so we don't have the whole assassin's creed thing happening again.
i will pass, bland environments, no wow factor. A game where you virtually jog is for the fat, no thanks.
To me this game is more of a First Person Run-Jumper. Not a FPS where the main thing you do is shoot. The action looks weak and this game will give me a headache.
Yes, although looks good for a tech demo but game wise too much running and jumping and no action is making it boring. Dont get me wrong i love DICE for their BF series but this is just too bland. What about lack of HUD? How would you know where to go etc?. I was also feeling nauseous from watching it and not to forget the eye poking aliasing giving headache.
What about lack of HUD? How would you know where to go etc?. you just follow the red area's and that's the reason why I ain't that hyped about it it's too on rail's for me. It would have been good if it was more like crackdown i.e there's where you need to go find away to get there yourself.
You can turn the "Runners vision" off if you want to. And even if it's not an open sandbox game each level has several routs you can take. I'm feed up with open sandbox games. Just about every game studio is making them today. I find it better with a little more linear levels with each part of the level made to perfection. No one complains over movies being linear, why should every game out there be an open sandbox game?
to me the graphics are a tad bit bland, i mean the guys look like crap up close, and everything in the environment is square with no detail, hopefully they give it some detail. gameplay wise the game looks very original.
here you can find the same stage demonstration and with much better quality. less frame rate drop, less jaggies... on top of that it is the PS3 version and it's looking good! http://livewire.ign.com/200...
how could somebody disagree with a FACT!!! just click the freaking link and see for yourself! i said that they play the PS3 version because when a developer of a multi-platfrom it is going to show some footage or something they always shows the one from the X360 but this time it was real time gameplay from the PS3 and it is looking awesome! for a multi-plat from EA to look awesome on PS3 that means that they are putting a lot of effort into this game.
some people juust like to disagree
I have to agree with a few other people, Mirrors Edge doesn't really look really appealing to me anymore. At first I was thinking that it was pretty cool, but my interest in the game just flew out of a window. I'll have to see more environments first because the environments shown at E3 look VERY bland, boring, and empty.
what it is that people see in this game. What? Its a FPS were you see your arms and legs every now and again? How amazing! No fighting so far, no real action so far, nothing to make anyone seem like they should give a crap about this game. I mean seriously, what is there besides you can see your arms and legs every now and again? What? You can run on roof tops? Whoop-di-dee-do! edit: please if you are going to disagree, please explain.
well some of us enjoy other things besides killing and shooting people. ;).....not sure i have to explain anything else.
Well actually i am interested in the game because it is not a normal First Person game. Why i say that it is not a normal one? Well in the majority of FP games the only thing you do it is shoot and kill some guys here, run and kill some more there until you beat the stage... Mirror Edge it's not about that, it is more about platforming and you don't need to kill every bad guy that appears because that's not your mission. Your mission is to deliver some packages at all cost, you can kill if you want and you can have their weapons to kill some other bad guys if you want too, that's your choice. The problem with weapons it's that they added weight to you making your moves slower and the acrobatics less efficient. Mirror Edge it's the first of its kind man! How many FPS games you know that have this kind of gameplay? --BTW I took my time writing this, thanks to my limited English so read it!!!
It's different! In the gaming age where every other game you play as some sort of guy in the military who is the ultimate badass it's nice to have a change of pace. Not just that the minimalist combat actually draws me into this game. I love platforming/free running in games and this one looks to pull it off pretty good. I do like to mix up my game library with different types of games such as this and Portal and hopefully Brutal Legend at the end of this year.
@ lastdance and fancypants Gamers who have lives and work for living the only way to release stress is by playing video games where they can do all sorts of stuff they can't (will not) do in real life like killing aliens/enemies, blowing up stuff etc. If all you do in this game is take one package from one place and deliver it to another place then people enjoying this kind of game should go and work in FedEX or DHL, albeit they wont be able to jump from roof to roof. I would like to see more levels before i can further comment on this game but so far of what's shown, does not warrant a must buy tag. BTW if anyone wants to see arms and legs and their own virtual bossom should try Tresspasser.
If this is how FedEX and DHL works I'd love to work for them. To bad I don't have the physics nor the agility required to manage it. And don't assume what your looking for in a game is the same thing others are looking for. I have a life and a full time work and this is a must buy game for me.
I think the premise of the game is great....im sure they'll be a lot of ADD kiddies who cant handle not shooting something for more then 5 minutes, but for the rest, if the game works out with a good storyline, it should be decent.
Is going to be a unique gaming experience but i have a feeling that its going to be linear as hell and the AI looks pretty dumb. Wonder what kind of replay value it will have?
I heard the same arguments for KZ2 but this one is more colorful :D
Yes having a whole bunch of White everywhere is more colorful.
throw a big machine gun in her hand and let her kill kill kill and the kiddies wont complain anymore, so what if it becomes like every other game by making only about what these kiddies wants.
I see quality in Mirror`s Edge. Looks fun and unlike, even though i hope it`s not too linear (usually a problem with almost very FPS out there though, like COD4 etc).
