Mirror's Edge is an effortless recommendation, and while I'm not sure waiting all this time has made the game any better, I'm glad it's finally here. Sure, there have been tons of running games in the past year but Mirror's Edge still is able to stand on its own, even after all this time. Playing through the game is a really cool experience, the controls work well, and just like the iPad game EA did a fantastic job of nailing the look and feel of the Mirror's Edge universe.

For those who are wondering about the performance on older devices..

It's a nice game. Graphics are ok, beautiful but not amazing. Controls are simple and great. The game is quite thrilling and fast paced. Still, I would love to see an endless mode. Would work pretty well. (Like Super Quickhook, which has got levels AND an endless mode)

Still, I don't understand the buzz about this. The PC version was at least amazing in the graphics department. This version is a nice game, no masterpiece or thing we will talk about in half a year.

The controls are spot on and I donīt know if anyone noticed it yet but Faith really stops where you touch the screen.
The problem due to the camera movement is however that itīs hard to
touch the spot in the first place
no issue, just observing!
And that you can have your iTunes music in it is also great.

Itīs a ton of fun, has excellent polish, run super smooth on a 2G and $5 is def. not too expensive for this game.
And itīs still one of the most COOLEST looking games around.

Very clean, very polished, good controls. It is a little short though if you are not after the bags. But still, I would buy it again immediately. Speed Runs add loads of replay value...

yeah... I know... and I <3 the iPad version. But, just that feeling of a mini-version in my phone, playable anytime. Extremely tempting...
