Why Fight When You Can Run?

Most modern games privilege combat over other forms of problem-solving. Nightmare Mode examines Mirror's Edge,and finds that while combat exists, it is almost entirely avoidable and unnecessary. In fact, the enemies are more obstacles to your momentum than targets to eliminate. (EA, Mirror's Edge, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Combat is pretty much every game. Which is odd considering so many of life's little challenges simply aren't or can't be solved with violence.

Its the reasom why I enjoy Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed. Yes those games have a focus on combat, and killing enemies, however thats not the point of the games.

The main goal is to enjoy the free-running, parkour and exploration the game has to offer you. I despise people who say "oh teh combat in AC is too EASE for me, i Liek Teh HardcoRE!!!111"

STFU, and go and play something else. Whilst I agree the combat isnt as good as many other games, but the main point of the game is to be stealthy as possible, and when in danger, use your parkour and hiding skills to your advantage.

It was incredibly annoying when clueless types complained "The shooting needs to be improved" in Mirror's Edge. Totally missed the point of that game. Personally, I loved every second of Mirror's Edge.
