Mirror’s Edge is one of the latest games released by Electronic Arts. It was released in January 13th just as The Lord of the Rings: Conquest was. Mirror’s Edge was developed by Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (DICE), a game developer in Stockholm, Sweden. According to its website (www.dice.se), they have developed Shrek, Rallisport Challenge, Battlefield 1942 , Midtown Madness 3 and more in the past.
So what kind of game is Mirror’s Edge? It’s a bit difficult to describe it. It’s a first-person action game where you play the character of Faith Connors. She is a Runner, a person who physically delivers messages. She is good at jumping from one building to another, running away from enemies. So this game is kind of the modern version of Prince of Persia 2008. You spend quite a lot of time figuring out where to go and how to get ‘there.’
I won’t say this is a good or bad game. I can tell you that the graphic quality in depicting city life is pretty good. Nonetheless, the audio quality is bad. Traffic noise is so loud that you can’t hear what Faith, her sister and other people are talking about. Traffic noise can be annoying even while Faith is inside a building.
