Mirror’s Edge

Some parkour enthusiasts put together a video inspired by Mirror’s Edge. They nailed the point of view and feeling of the game.

Mirror’s Edge was was one of the best games of 2008 that no one seemed to play. It wasn’t a perfect game, but it was an original concept and got increasingly more enjoyable as you learned to look for optimal paths. I think that many reviewers never got to the point where they could flow through levels.

I still occasionally run through a time trial level or two for fun. The gameplay is a cross between platforming and puzzle solving, all from a first-person point of view that makes you feel like you’re there doing it. The score was great too.

A new game has been announced, which is excellent news. I will be buying it.
