Joystiq’s Prime 10 of 2008: Mirror’s Edge
And jumped we did, breathlessly throughout, underneath and over an city race course, our persecutors mere steps behind us. Mirror’s Edge cuts to the chase, right here a vertiginous sequence of chic platforming and a ruthless hunt for effectivity. It is completely thrilling, introduced in a perspective often reserved for blundering man-tanks. Sure, there are cumbersome weapons — a literal throwaway aspect — and sure, there’s fist-to-face fight that is greater than just a little difficult. What number of controllers would have been spared had the “Check of Religion” Achievement been eliminated?
Mirror’s Edge does stumble sometimes, however when it runs, it leaves most video games within the mud. It is one of the troublesome, partaking, irritating and satisfying experiences of the yr. Chase it.
