Default Mirror's Edge.

I believe that Mirror's Edge was one of the greatest videogames I ever had the pleasure of playing. The game's flow, art direction, gameplay, graphics, everything about it was really quite impressive and I enjoyed every second of it.

The two gripes I do have with it is A) it's length. It should have been so much longer. But like most excellent videogames, it was a short one. (Yesterday, I actually completed it on hard, without killing a single enemy - knock-outs only - in 5 1/2 hours. Perhaps i'm super1337 or something. I don't know.) and B) It can be quite tempremental sometimes, things like not grabbing ledges or pipes when you should be are a favourite. Sometimes, enemies insta-killing you as well but generally, the game is quite bug-free.

Anyone else here played it?

Yeah, I went and bought it after Grif wrote a crossover fanfic about it here. I really liked it but got stuck on one part that I couldn't get past. Haven't played it since.

Yeah it's an amazing game! Sometimes it got on my nerves, but not nearly as much as most games do (I cannot stand any tiny design flaw, it has to be fing perfect for me to not b!tch about). I thought it was really innovative and very immersive! My favourite moments were at the very beginning, the first moments in Faith's body after training, it was very cinematic and beautiful, the moment she slides down on the ledge and approaches the crane, the music that kicks in, it's all freedom... The most awesome moment was with the train when you're trapped, when I saw it coming and then "operator" told me about the door, I felt like in the last chase in Matrix it literally missed me by milimetres

It was a good game. A very good game. Probably in my top 5.

It was OK, IMO the combat was this games biggest flaw. The flow of movement, the art. All of it was broken when you had to run around a block to stop a guy shooting at you, then slide at his stupid ass. I HATED, and I mean HATED the last level:
(Spoiler, Highlight to see)
When you're at the top of the tower, and there are like, 10 guards, and you have to destroy the servers or something? I broke a controller there.

ME2 Obviously wins. Tali is just...awesome.
Also, in my weird ways, I find Garrus more attractive.

Yeah, that game was awesome. Lot's of memorable scenes. Finished it yesterday.

The pursuit cops remind me of agents from the Matrix, strangely.
Well, they both run after you, the character, who's a rebel, so it kinda figures.

Apparently (I've only heard) you can have a relationship with Garrus as Female Shepard in ME2. Wonder how that would work..

They should let you choose a race.

But anyway. I love the G36 in Mirror's Edge. Nice.
My favourite level is probably the one where you find Kate near that dudes body. Epic chopper chase.

Also, I laughed my head off when you're chasing Jackknife and the idiot face plants.

See: Embarresing.
YouTube - Mass Effect 2 - Garrus Romance Scene
Also, see: Failure, waste of time, annoying, censors SUCK, No Alien Pr0nz = fail
I wasn't happy Bioware, I wasn't. I wanted to see some Garrus lovin'

^ You wouldn't even call that a romance scene. That was a load of nervous comments and upsetting memories for Garrus. >.<

That was clearly not epic compared to other "scenes" with other characters. And since Garrus is made of epic we should've seen something better.
