Kombo: I had delayed playing Mirror's Edge for a while, not just because I sucked at the demo, but also because I just had so many other interesting things to play.
Yes, I realized that I've probably ticked off all the Mirror's Edge fans out there. In all fairness though, once I started playing Mirror's Edge, I found it to be amazingly addictive. The high speed chases, the emphasis on dexterity and maneuverability, and the streamlined level design kept me glued to my screen for hours at a stretch. Unfortunately, the rapidly rising levels of challenge and the monotony of the level design finally caused me to give up the faith.
Yes, pun definitely intended.
