Now before everyone starts throwing tomatoes at me and yells obscenities, I have to come out of the cave and reveal the truth: I have never played Mirror's Edge. Not on my Xbox 360, not on any of my friend's Xbox 360s… I have never played Mirror's Edge. I've heard of it, sure, but I've never brought myself to go to Game Stop, buy the game, and sit down and actually play the game.
So with that said, this was a totally new experience for me. And boy, was I impressed. Like really, really, tremendously impressed. The controls felt natural, the graphics were totally out there, and the game itself was a lot of fun. It may just look like running and dodging things, but there's just so much more to it than that.
Mirror's Edge for the iPad can only be described with one word: beauty, and it's a game that should be on your newly-bought iPad, no excuses or questions asked.
