Mirror’s Edge Review
Welcome to, yet again, another one of my game reviews my last review about Fortnite shop today was really appreciated as well. Today I will be discussing the game Mirror’s Edge. Though I played this game and beat it within a week, it still definitely has some replay value due to its “Time Trials” mode where players attempt to complete a map by reaching a certain amount of checkpoints with the fastest time.
The game is filled with bright colors, whether it is your “Runner Vision” which emphasizes pieces useful for progression. Some pipes, ramps, ladders, and doors are highlighted in red as Faith, your character, approaches, allowing the player to instantly recognize paths and escape routes. The main colors of the skyline in the city are a blank white with some signs being neon green, orange, and bright red. It’s an almost futuristic metropolis and was a nice feature in the game for me.
The fighting system is also interesting because you can progress extremely far in the game without touching a single weapon. In fact, it’s possible to beat the game without even using one! You can use your fists to batter off offending police officers and such. I got to a point in the game where my mental state of mind was that I never needed a weapon and I was completely invincible. Yeah, no. I finally decided to grab a gun off of an officer and try my luck, mind you this was 3/4 through the game so I had gone fairly far, well I found this to be extremely easy and make it a lot more efficient to mow down the cops. Although I didn’t get the achievement for not using a gun the entire game, it did make things significantly easier. Also, the heavier gun you are carrying, the more it slows down Faith, so pick your guns strategically.
The next element I am going to talk about will be the storyline. It’s very intriguing and interesting for sure. The main plot is that someone murdered a candidate for mayor and blamed it on your sister, a police officer, now you have to figure out who framed her and bring her to justice. I will say that this is definitely an action-filled adventure that will leave you wanting more.
Now that we have the storyline covered, let’s discuss the mechanics. You Hardcore parkour everywhere, every day, so hard as fast as you can and forever. Ao, it’s like you are wall-running, under-barring, ladder-climbing action all over the place!
Anyhow, this game is totally worth the $20, $13, or $15 bucks (Depending on console) or however much it costs.
