I can't get behind this review, Disco, not least because I played it extensively and wrote two reviews for it, but also because this reads like a brief advertisement rather than anything remotely in-depth. You don't talk about the controls, something that's needed for a game with this crazed of an approach. You don't talk about the random finding your way through buildings. You don't mention the elevators that slow things down to a screeching halt. You don't talk about runner vision or time trials.

What you do say, you say with a nice eloquence, but I know there's more (and ironically less) to Mirror's Edge than this.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

I don't have the problems Zipp has with this review. I, actually, rather liked it, though some of the phrasing is rather clusmy, it's an approuch I enjoyed.

For us. For them. For you.
