Even though the game features more on platforming and parkour action instead of combat, I’m pleased to see that combat isn’t as stilted as it looked in early trailers. Despite the lack of combat, my heart was still pounding during the demo thanks to its “Oh my god, something is chasing me” dynamics.
Some people said that the setting and graphics in Mirror’s Edge are too sterile, but that’s the whole point. It is a dystopian society after all. I for one, love the crisp setting and the blue tone of the entire game. It just looks so futuristic without looking too sci-fi.
If the demo is any indication of the full game, I can’t wait till mid-November.
