Variety: Mirror's Edge Review

The thrill of the chase loses all its appeal in Electronic Arts' Parkour-inspired "Mirror's Edge." Repetitive, difficult and visually dull, the game is undone by its use of a highly constrained first person viewpoint in a world of high-speed running and jumping where perspective is everything. Though it deserves some credit for originality, "Mirror's Edge" is too fundamentally misconceived to avoid tumbling down the sales charts.

The story is too old to be commented.

IMO, if this is a MUST-BUY for you, pick up Mirror's Edge for PC in January. On console, the game too heavily relies on the trigger buttons. This feels like a title that deserves WASD + mouse controls. As an added perk, you save a few bucks this holiday season and you allow the positive/negative hype to die down before making an educated decision.
