Mirrors Edge (Xbox360 Demo)

Writing about web page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYYlfDvhSQw

Follow the link to gameplay video of a title that, for me as a casual gamer, came out of nowhere until I saw it being discussed on some forums this evening.

The game is a strange cross between the sport of Parkour and films such as Equilibrium - if you can imagine such a thing. You play a character (Faith) who is a sort of messenger for the underground in a police state type future - and the game basically involves getting about the impressive maps to reach key objectives, whilst acrobatically avoiding (or fighting) the police that get in your way.

The demo gives you a nice tutorial to get used to the initially baffling controls, and then throws you into a good opening level to give you a feel for the game. And it certainly does not dissappoint in any area. It looks, sounds, and plays excellently.

I got the demo on Xbox 360, but it comes out mid November on Xbox 360 and PS3, and sometime later on the PC. Definately worth a look.

  1. Looks interesting.

    I bought an XBox in Christmas to play a bit when I am bored and also so that my wife could play when she is bored.

    I heard a bit about the game but I didn’t get the chance to download the demo yet.

    I think my wife will probably like it :).
