Default Mirrors edge

Well now that im done with FEAR 2 I figured id try EAs new helping in the FP action genre. So far im really enjoying this game, its a little tough but it looks great and seems to run well even with physx running.

One thing I didnt like was the cut scenes being that lame single color block style animation, would have looked and felt much better if it where more like the ingame graphics. Looks to much like one of those new cartoons you see =(

I love that game!!! It is way better on the PC than the consoles IMHO.

Be careful on the one level with Jacknife. Those 3 red pipes after you swing on the 2 flag poles.....I swear that that last one goes right trough me at times.....

Looks pretty good but is very short from what I heard, so I am waiting for it to hit bargain status or buy it used for cheap.

It dropped $10 at BB and is down to $40. Was released at $50 for PC IIRC. I'd pay $30 for it but not at Walmart. I can wait. :)

Mirror's Edge is the only game I can remember that I bought and never finished (well once I started). The game made me frustrated beyond belief.
