"Mirror's Edge is clearly an ambitious game, and you really should give EA credit for the interesting new elements. Unfortunately, the restrictive nature of the city, along with the completely odd and unnecessary shooting segments, really knock the score down a few pegs. If the game sells well and warrants a sequel, then I would hope that the developers would play through the Metroid Prime series to get a feel of how a first person adventure should be handled. Until then, Mirror's Edge provides a largely fresh experience and some crazy speed, right along with some lame shooting sequels and the failure to deliver true go anywhere do anything gameplay. So, again, Mirror's Edge somehow found a way to be a blah game and a pretty solid one at the same time. This one is definitely a game you'll want to rent first, as I get the feeling it you will be either love it or hate it."
