Yea I know… This game is three years old and reviewed to death but I think it deserves another drop in the bucket of positive reviews. Simply put; it’s 2011 and I’m still playing this three year old game. It’s unique gameplay and visual design has made a lasting impression on me.
Another overlooked aspect of the game is the musical score composed by Magnus Birgersson. The music in any medium whether film, television or games creates and establishes the tone and mood of the story. And it’s no different in this game. The story and plot are thin, and the characters are not completely fleshed out, but in my opinion and observation, Mirror’s Edge is an experimentation in game design that worked.
