Despite the early promise shown prior to its release, Mirror's Edge hasn't been able to fulfil the expectations. However, despite the weak story, trial and error gameplay and length, Mirror's Edge is still a game that ought to be tried. While it doesn't quite succeed at doing something different, it still manages to provide an exhilarating and unique gameplay experience. By ignoring it, you're implying that you prefer to have sequels churned out rather than something new and original. So even if Mirror's Edge is not the best thing since sliced bread, it still tastes good.
