Past few days several E3 Hype articles have stated people are excited about Mirrors Edge, actually enough to have them list it as their most anticipated.
Okay, well I am sorry to judge so quickly, because I have as little knowledge as the next guy, who might say it's going to be superb, but to me... this title looks like pure mediocrity.
'It's EA' is not even my reasoning behind it. My reasoning is the following:
-Everything we have seen so far reeks of clever gimmicks. But why are people excited? Because they think there is MORE than that. And in reality, true to EA PR there isn't.
-Screenshots and videos we have seen so far shows beautiful art direction. But there is so much depth in that to make a first impression, I reckon there is little behind that aesthetically pleasing facade.
-The only possible gameplay that can go with this game is free-running. There is limited gun play and limited combat, how anyone expects it to ever have more depth to that is beyond me.
Summing up, EA will show the game, it will play nicely, it will look great. But once we get the games in our hands it will be Assassins Creed all over again, but with less combat and more free-running.
So to conclude, here's a statement; Mirror's Edge E3 2008's Big Letdown.
