    I could have sworn they already said ages ago that they wanted to make a sequel, but didn't know how to go about it? Regardless, let's hope their brainstorming goes well :D

    I'd love to go back to the old PC days where every game wasn't trying to be a franchise. Still as far as sequels go I might actually be able to get into this one if they are revamping stuff.

    Game was sensational. Worth every penny I paid for it. Just hope the new one continues in such fashion.

    Might as well do it tonight. Should only take about 3.5 hours first play through.

    Yeah, that short. I love Mirror's Edge, but I thought I was at the climax of the game when I finished, not the f*cking end. If you bought that full price I don't see how you wouldn't feel a little gypped.

    If you do, try to do it properly, i.e. no weapons.

    I managed a good 2/3 of the game without picking up a single firearm before I succombed to the temptation of a sniper rifle.

    It's such a shame many journous thought the the shooting aspect was the game, and struggled with the perfectly deliberate difficulty in doing so.

    Mirrors edge is amazing, this will be on my preorder list if they make it. Doubt itll be a 2012 release though :(

    It took me a lot longer than that to complete it the first time, and I must've completed it another 2 times since. I got it in the Steam sale but I would have been more than happy to pay full price for it.

    I can't wait to see what they do with the next game though, I'm actually kinda glad they waited until they have some decent ideas for it.

    It is a fantastic game, imo for these reasons:

    1. Parkour with real hands/feet shown! This was imho its finest aspect.
    2. Unique and somehow believable world and art style.

    I think EA recognise that there is a huge amount of potential for the game, and I am really looking forward to seeing more of it.

    Hot damn - one of the greatest, most underrated games of the last decade. I only paid $20AU, would have gladly played more. Brilliant gameplay, great dialogue, great characters, great art design.

    Made a lot of people motion sick, though. And since it was so unique, a lot of reviewers got all "ERROR, DO NOT RECOGNISE GAME TYPE - HATE MODE ENABLED" thing going on. It also focused a lot on player skill, rather than character skill.

    Look at the quasi-radiosity demo pic from Frostbite 2 on wikipedia (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c8/Frostbite2-realtime-radiosity.jpg) - now tell me that don't look like a Mirror's Edge level.

    Too bad that means it'll run Frostbite's shitty sound engine, though :(.

    Oh, and I'm glad that the bit-tech readers haven't at all mentioned multiplayer (so far.)

    What would really kick arse would be for ME2 to be a sandbox city, where you can run and jump to your heart's content between missions.
