Disappointed, maybe the whole movement thing isn't as cool anymore because a bunch other games do it now, and I actually think it felt much better in Black Ops 3 compared to this, to me at least. Played a bunch of the first game at a friends house and loved it, not the same feelings for this one so far.
The maps also seem... not great. A game about movement and the maps doesn't seem to encourage that much, if at all. I want to chain crazy wall runs and tight jumps, but I am not really able to do that. As people have mentioned, it seems a little slow and controls doesn't seem as tight as I would like either.
It's definitely not bad, it's kinda fun but yeah, glad they had this test though because it made me kinda sure not to get it.
Speaking of fans of the old one, there's a really nice easter egg on the first hour of the game: right before you walk through the vent to go talk with Birdman, you'll walk inside a section that looks exactly like a mirrored copy of a section from early on the original Mirror's Edge, there's even a runner's bag on the same spot! It was a neat throwback and you can't miss that section since it's the only path you can take to get to the waypoint and activate the cutscene.
Played roughly an hour of it, and I reaaaaaallly liked it, honestly more than I expected. Was very much in doubt about the open world, but it feels great though there are some moments where you run yourself into a corner or get completely lost, but that doesn't matter because the movement feels fantastic as it did back in the first game, maybe even better. I didn't like that they locked some movement options behind XP walls raise feet while jumping, 180 spin and the roll being three of them, used those a ton in the first game, and it kinda makes the game a little worse.
I even thought the fighting seemed cool, certainly felt better than it looked, though it was a little clumsy at spots, but an upgrade over the first game. Story didn't do anything for me, and there was more of it.
Music didn't feel as distinct/present as the first game, which is the only game I've ever bought the soundtrack for. I completely loved that and the theme song.
Not sure I have the money to buy this at full price at launch, which makes me sad, because I would love to support it if the games continues being this much fun throughout.
Just got an email with my code, downloading right now!!
Really interested in seeing what the game is like, and if I am still interested. Mirror's Edge was among my absolute favorites from the last generation of consoles, and I've been waiting for another ever since I finished the first game, but I am unsure if it's still something I would be into, my time for games and taste in them has changed quite a bit since the original.
I also got an extra code, so I guess you can share with friends, which I think is dope!
@jacdg: It's super short compared to everything else, but it's my favorite PS3 Ratchet and Clank. It has more subtle humor that the first PS2 games had.
Yeah I know it is, still looking forward to it. I didn't play games for about 7 months when it came out, then I got a PS4 and kinda forgot about it, sadly. Beat the other games multiple times on both PS2 and PS3. I need my R&C fix.
