Mirror's Edge (PC)

 

Like its heroine, Faith, Mirror's Edge tries to hurdle some significant obstacles, but unlike Faith, it can't always make the leap. No doubt, this fascinating action platformer possesses its share of innovations, from a first-person perspective to a...

The Good: Some pieces of the game provide an exhilarating, adrenaline rush. The Bad: Some parts don't, and the resulting grind of jump-miss-die-reload can be very tiring. The Ugly: Could be a real problem for those prone to motion sickness, and maybe...

I must admit that much of ME was enjoyable (those parts that weren't frustrating or nauseating), but there's just not much of a game here. It's short and uneven. I'm going back to Fallout 3, where I'm just about to finish my first run through it and...

Mirror's Edge PC Review

 

Over the last few years, it's been a rare thing for Electronic Arts to really let loose and even attempt to start up a new game series. Lately, however, EA has begun making attempts to change that image by embracing new games. Army of Two, Boom Blox,...

Amazing first person parkour; slick graphics; refreshingly original game design; stylish cutscenes; amazingly intense chase sequences

Combat mandatory sections are pretty bad; Can easily induce nausea with jerky camera movements; enemy Runners are intensely annoying; bland storyline, can be tough on your PC at times

Mirror's Edge takes place in a near future where the government has total control over all aspects of people's lives. Even something as simple as communication is censored for the citizens. Entering this situation are the Runners; a group of secret...

EA's "Mirror's Edge" comes to the PC with a true PhysX makeover that's sure to inspire any modern developer.

Art design can't be beat ; PhysX is well-worth it if your PC can handle it ; Controls are extremely fluid in comparison to consoles ; Engaging and deep story that's sure to get your brain ticking ; Time trials are a great way to extend the life of the...

No replay value once you've completed the time trials and story ; No online play to speak of ; Properly running PhysX requires an immensely high-end rig for the time being

This game is definitely worth purchasing if you own a decent PC with a high-end GPU, but I highly recommend the console version if you don't plan on going through the game more than once. For the sake of clarification: It's possible to rent the console...

I really liked this game. The idea was brilliant and it looked great but as you said, what let it down was the story and the combat. Combat was always the hardest thing in this game for me because I never really got the hang of disarming the guards and...

A great game at its core, marred by a bevy of minor and major annoyances. A lot of potential, but to truly work this game has to be refocused and partially reworked from the ground up.

Is the PhysX-enabled, enhanced PC version worth the leap of Faith?

There was some question as to how keyboard and mouse controls would hold up on a game designed first and foremost for console controllers. The community answer appears to be mixed, but in my experience, the keyboard and mouse worked perfectly...

Video Review: Eventually You Have to Jump

Good review. I can say a lot of the same things about it's polish and frustration. For me, the controls get clunky the slower you go. They should have tweaked some "snap" controls so it wasn't so easy to fall off of a building because you're trying to...

Mirror's Edge PC Review

 

The rift between console and PC gaming has always been a strange one, but it's gotten really strange in recent years. Time and time again we've seen successful console games get ported to the PC with a minimum of effort or testing, and every time the...

Technically, Mirror's Edge is sound, with a solid technology behind it (Unreal Engine 3) and good support for mice and keyboards as well as gamepads. It's relatively bug-free, although I had to disable PhysX in the game to stop it from slowing down...

At its core, Mirror's Edge is not innovative. It's a platformer. You'll run and jump across platforms, carefully timing each motion so you don't fall just as you've done for years. What is innovative though is the way EA Dice chose to present these...

While playing through Mirror's Edge, I found myself wishing I could bypass the combat entirely. It was tricky, confusing and felt tacked on all together. While I may be wishing for that for quite some time, the cheats and trainers for Mirror's Edge do...

Mirrors Edge was heavily anticipated around the holiday season, and was regarded fairly well when it came out, and now that we have it for the PC I

Mirrors Edge is an intense and intensely enjoyable experience from top to bottom that manages to capture a very interesting gameplay element and perfect it. It features a great story, stunning graphics and great sound. There are very few issues and...
