I was excited about the concept of Mirrors Edge, and got it as a Christmas gift in 2008. This game will frustrate you beyond belief. There are times when you will feel like jumping off a building with Faith for the simple fact she won't do what you want her to.
But sticking with this game was one of my best decisions, and it fast became one of my games of early 09. I completed the game four times, because it is easy to pick up and once you know your way around the levels, becomes about doing things quickly, which is actually a lot of fun!
The story, which is very much a mix of the whole world is monitored vs. family revenge actually runs smoothly, and makes you want to play on! Some of the twists are very predictable, but you will still play through to make sure your right!
Even the end credits have arguably one of the greatest pieces of Video Gaming Music in them, and are worth watching all the way through just to hear the track play.
Its not Metal Gear Solid or GTA, but as a completly different concept, Mirrors Edge is well worth ten pounds of your money!!
