Take to the rooftops with Mirrors Edge, available from ChoicesUK for only £7.99, a price reduction of over £42!
According to a price-comparison, this is the cheapest deal you can find for Mirrors Edge, although postage costs £1.99. Developed by Dice, the makers of the Battlefield series, Mirrors Edge wowed critics with its blend of parkour gameplay and natural movement, averaging 79/100 on MetaCritic and receiving numerous 90+ ratings from the likes of Official Xbox Magazine and 1UP.
Mirrors Edge is set in a fictional city constantly monitored by a totalitarian government, with couriers known as 'Runners' tasked with delivering secretive information and packages. It follows Faith, a Runner who finds herself embroiled in the war between society and its government.
Mirrors Edge is an ambitious game, with developers Dice focusing on creating natural motion and movement from a first-person perspective. Faith's vision sways when she runs fast, shakes and shudders when she lands jumps and scales buildings. The city is drawn in a bright, sterile colour-pallette, with 'Flow' painting objects Faith can use to navigate her enviroments in bright red. The parkour aspect of the game is well-crafted and enjoyable, but the combat sections, where Faith must use her martial arts skills to incapacitate her enemies, lack depth and polish.
