    I'm gutted, as I was looking forward to the sequel. The first one was a great game, with good graphics.

    My mate (gaming since nes) pirated this (lets not get into all that now) and said it was worth playing but glad he didnt buy it. from that, I picked it up on steam sale. again, i thought it was alright. Really liked how it was different and not copying anything but by end of game was glad they didnt try to get any more gameplay hours out of it.
    If they had a sequel, it'd have to expand / improve gameplay to make it worth picking up.
    I'm dissappointed DICE couldn't take it in a successful direction as we need more variance in types of games.

    A real shame. One of the few games that really captured my attention. Can always live in hope a sequel or spiritual successor comes along eventually.

    I've tried 3 times now, just can't get into the original at all.

    +2 Loved the original, even paid full price for it, no regrets. I'd buy a sequel even if it was just more of the same tbh.

    I purchased the original in the steam sale a while back, wasn't my cup of tea, although i could appreciate the work that went into it and the innovation. Shame that it didn't sell well enough for a sequel.

    I loved Mirror's Edge... until I got to literally the last room and lost interest.

    I would have loved to see a sequel.

    i think it'd have been better if they just made an expansion to the game. making a full-blown new game isn't really necessary - theres not a whole lot you can change about the game. besides, its graphics are still pretty decent even today, and it wouldn't take much to improve them a little bit.

    Can't say I care overly it was nice to see something original and a sequel would have ruined that. We always have the original.

    I know why Mirrors Edge sales were dissapointing: the PC version came out too late and was too expensive for too long. I ended up importing it from the US 'cos it was more than a fiver cheaper including postage than the prices in the UK even 4 months after release!

    (disclaimer: "too expensive" for me is >£25 on PC. To give context, Assassins Creed 2 was £24.99 on release on Play.com)

    This was an amazing game and was totally ground breaking. It created a genre for itself. However I am glad it was canned to leave more of the talented programmers at DICE available to work on BF3 and pathces for BF2 and BF2142.

    On one hand this is a shame because I would have liked to see the story continue and basically have had more of the fantastic original gameplay in a new game, but then Centy makes a good point about keeping an original game... well, original:

    An expansion pack would have been a good idea, but clearly it was disappointing enough for EA to drop it pretty much instantly.

    I wish EA would ask me to preview some of their games at an early development stage and make big decisions like that. They'd never publish another game again if I had that decision making power. I still cringe every time I think of how bad and buggy some of the earlier BF games were at launch, games that I spent probably hundreds of pounds on over the years which were so buggy and unreliable that I couldn't be bothered playing them much at all.

    To all those people who "didn't like the game" or "couldn't get into it"...

    Smelly fart.


    I used to sell Fresnel lenses for PC gaming/simulation. I have a spare Fresnel lens and I'd like to try it with Mirror's Edge... Would pull you right into that perilous game world.

    EA are mostly retards of course.
