"More Mirror's Edge Footage
In addition to the direct-feed trailer, we also have a Mirror's Edge walkthrough video captured during EA's press conference. The video offers nearly five minutes of in-game footage. "
I must be a neanderthal or something, but I kind of wish the game had a (or at least the option of a) male protagonist. This game, far and away, gives you the best sense of seeing through the main character's eyes that I've seen yet. And for me, while I enjoy many of them, FPSs don't pull that sensation off well at all -- they usually seem more like a camera with a gun attached to it, floating about three feet off the ground.
This game looks like it will make you feel like a badass when played properly, but feeling like I'm a female? Kind of strange. It's not going to stop me from buying this game day one. I'm super excited about it. But still... Like I said, maybe I'm close-minded or old fashioned or something in this regard.
Plus, I fear I'm going to fall off too many rooftops because I'm too busy looking down at my character's chest while running.
4. How much focus will the concept of free roaming have? Do we get to run around wherever we want on the rooftops or are we somehow restricted to specific levels?
There seems to be some confusion about this - this is not a free-roaming game and I think it is a better game for that. We have a story-driven action game and we want you to experience the story. There are however multiple ways of tackling every level whether it is the routes you take or the combat style you adopt. Also the type of movement we have in the game turns almost any area into a mini-sandbox. You will not feel restricted in the game.
