OXM UK: Mirror's Edge Review

OXM UK writes: "The world in Mirror's Edge is a brave and shiny new place. The people have given up their liberties in exchange for safety, and every informational tit-bit and factoid comes to you pre-filtered by a totalitarian government.

The first triumph of this game is the look - it's undeniably one of the most beautiful settings we've seen in a long time. The second is the truly remarkable sense of movement.

The problem is that the game seems to run out of ideas too quickly, resorting to tougher enemies, more confusing levels and peculiar arcade distractions to pad its brief running time.

This is a game that you absolutely should play, because you won't have played anything like it before and it's touched with genuine brilliance. But there are some irritatingly old-fashioned problems under the gloss, which we really hope the inevitable sequels will address." (Mirror's Edge, Xbox 360) 7/10
