What EA Should Be Doing
If you dig far enough back into history beneath the mess that is Electronic Arts, you’ll find a game that deserves way more attention, a game that they tried their best to hide and almost succeeded, although we don’t know why. This game is called Mirror’s Edge. In Mirror’s Edge you play as a young parkour expert named Faith.; you work for a secret underground organization that was made to bring the world back to its original state. The game doesn’t explain too much about Faith’s history with the organization but it gives you and the character a clear objective to motivate you.
The game-play is focused almost entirely on the parkour mechanics. I say almost because the game is in fact a shooter game, most likely because of the developer’s history with those types of games but that clearly wasn’t the point. It can be assumed that the company wanted to make something new and refreshing and it payed off. You can tell they put a lot of time into making the game as fluid as possible. The game really makes you feel like you’re in that situation and setting. However the game just does not work that well with a controller, I can not recommend anyone use it.
This game deserves way more respect than it got, when I first played I had never seen anything like it before and I still haven’t to this day. I recommend this game to everyone who sees this review because I can’t praise it enough. It is one of my favorite games and I hope more people play it.
