Most anticipated new IP bar none/ most anticipated game period behind Blizzard/Valve/Relic's stuff. Seriously. All the footage we've seen of the game has absolutely blown me away.

I can't wait to play this game without the red stuff. The world is just a giant puzzle waiting to be solved. And the movement looked completely natural and not puke inducing at all to me.

"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. "
Fucking amazing.

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. ;)

I really hope there's some sort of Free Roam mode with no cops to hassle you. I'd just run around for hours, and then eventually I'd climb up the tallest tower and jump off to see what happens :lol

This might be my most anticipated title aside from RE5 right now. Is it supposed to hit this year?

Yeah, late 2008 they say

You wish!

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.​

It could be super cool if at some point you had to chase (or were chased by) someone with similar abilities to your own, a la Casino Royale.

That should be a multiplayer mode. One where it's one on one with two really quick characters like Faith, and another where it's like 4 of the slower guys chasing the one quick character.

Does we even know if this game has a multiplayer mode?

Seriously. Just wow. Poetry in fucking motion. Everything I wanted it to be from the day I first heard the concept. <3
Most exciting game of E3 so far. It's like being Trinity on the rooftops of the Matrix one but in first person and exploding with color and VERTIGINOUS AWESOME.
