There are many games that are about to be released in this year’s holiday season, and no doubt ill be broke by then. However there is one particular game that im keeping a very close eye on. Its called Mirror’s Edge.
Its an action game, played in a first person view. It has a mix of shooting, acrobats, and unarmed fighting all mixed in. So what is the game all about?
“In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed and now you are being hunted. You are a Runner called Faith – and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story.
Mirror’s Edge™ delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith’s world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous. Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain, in this city, you will learn how to run.”
Just take a look at the trailers below:
When i first downloaded the trailer off the PSN in all its HD glory, i was stunned with the clean and vibrant graphics of the game. They even claimed that the trailer was 100% in game footage. I didnt believe it at first. It was almost too realistic and clean. No way this is gonna be in game footage. But apparently it is. Watching it on youtube wouldnt do justice. You have got to see the HD version of the clip to believe that this might be another title worth checking out. Not just about the graphics, but the somewhat unique gameplay experience and probably knowing more about the characters’ story as well as the world they live in.
I just hope that this would not be a flop in the making. Judging from the quality of the trailers they have been releasing, its probably safe to say that the developers are taking this project seriously and trying hard to appeal to the gamers to try something unique and innovative.
