    A parkour game at It's finest. I received this masterpiece of a game one Christmas morning. My eyes were glued to the screen for the almost entirety of the first mission, I then proceeded to turn of the game because I di... Read Full Review

    More stressful than fun

    I don't normally have ideas for new games, but one idea I had was a first-person platforming game. After stating this idea to my friends, it was quickly shot down as a stupid idea, since it would be very disorienting as ... Read Full Review

    Running on a Razor's Edge

    This game was another one of those supprises that despite running under the radar, I was able to pick up on my scope, and I really like it. What make this game go the distance are the fact it has combined two generes, p... Read Full Review

    If you looked up the definition of the word "frustrating" in the dictionary it would say Mirrors Edge.

    I'm gonna narrow this review into 2 parts.1. Repetitive2. I"M ONLY HUMAN!1. This game repeats the SAME EXACT cycle:Climb on stuff, go inside of a building, fight enemies. Lather, rinse, repeat. Basically all you do is lo... Read Full Review

    Story sucks, but gameplay is fun.

    First-person parkour doesn't sound like something that would work, but Mirror's Edge pulls it off. Seeing the world through your character's eyes makes her stunts less cinematic, but more immersive, and adds to the thril... Read Full Review
