It would appear that Mirror’s Edge is somewhat shorter than I was expecting. There’s only 9 chapters, and aside from a couple of bits that I was obviously doing the wrong way (a car park and the security servers bits), it wasn’t that hard either – even though I was playing it on Normal and refusing to use guns.
That isn’t to say it’s bad – far from it. It’s just over a bit soon, that’s all. I only paid £13 for it so I’m not bothered really, but if I’d spend full whack (which I never do, so it’s all hypothetical!) I’d be disappointed. It probably explains why the price of the game came down so quick, anyway.
Of course, there’s all the time trial stuff and the speed runs, but having played them for a bit I’ve found I’m simply not cut out for them. I managed to just squeeze in under qualifying time for some of the runs, but that only gets you a single star. I don’t have a hope in hell of getting three stars on any of them!
