Luv Mirror's Edge
Apologies in advance if a thread about this game already exists; I just spent 20 minutes searching the forum, because I was sure someone had already written something about it, but I found nothing. Also, mods, feel free to move this to another forum - I had no idea what to classify this game as, it seems to be a bit of everything.

* Website
* Trailer

Demo's coming out (for XboxLive/PSN) tomorrow (Fri 30th Oct), apparently. No word on a PC demo, probably won't happen.

For those who can't wait for more ME goodness, however, check this out:

The incredibly beautiful main theme from the Mirror's Edge OST!



Enjoy!

This is a game that will go on my "Anticipated" list once it's added.
Probably on my "Liked" list as well.
Too bad that it's an EA game; I don't really feel like sponsoring that company.

I never heard that song, at least not while realizing it was the actual theme.
Apparently it's called "Still Alive", but I'm guessing that's just coincidence.
(Thinking about Jonathan Coulton's popular song with the same name, Portal's theme song.)

Thanks Dvader - I worked it out on another thread today, just forgot to edit this one! Thanks for reminding me.

@Retodon8, I hear you about EA, particularly with the new (yet-to-be-officially-verified) rules about forum access = game access. And yes, apparently a lot of people have commented about the name of the song, it was one of the things that struck me as odd when I first heard about this one.

It's an interesting concept, but everytime I look at it I just get the feeling the gimmick will wear off after 15 minutes of play. None of the jumps or moves look all that fantastic, but at least they're trying something new.

I re-enacted the trailer as best as I could, and it was indeed pretty easy.
I only broke a leg, two necks, and a wrist.
But really, some of those jumps look pretty fantastic if you ask me.
Even if they don't, the "gimmick" itself should still work if the moves aren't impossible, since they're still impossible for you, me, the average player.
Without playing I can't really judge if the first person running, jumping, and climbing is enough to sell the game, but I'm hoping it will be.
I'll be trying the demo...

I'm really interested in how DICE can take an interesting gameplay concept, combined with an interesting story/setting, and weave them together.

I just preordered the game from Amazon last night after playing the demo through again.

The story/premise of the game REALLY interests me (I'm a huge Matrix/1984/Children of Men/etc fan), so I had to buy it and check it out Game play is pretty cool too

This game does show promise. I tried the demo and so far it seems like a fresh game. The animations and first person give it a great feel. I could see some of the game play getting repetitive but hopefully they work around that for the final version.
