E3: Return to Occam's Razor
The rumours were true, Mirror's Edge 2 is on its way. And about time too. Though flawed, Mirror's Edge was a game that really stood out. Not least because of it's incredibly striking art style. Something which the trailer above clearly shows has been retained as well as massively polished.
Another one that boasts of being entirely in engine footage, it shows some rather intriguing imagery. Is that a map being tattooed on Faith's upper arm? And does the tattoo to her eye, which was already present in the first game, being applied here suggest a prequel game? Also, the letters and numbers on the shoulder pads of those poor saps she's using as a Mister Squishyhead stand in. What are they all about? ERT-2, UPD-3 or maybe UPO, some kind of rank insignia perhaps? Each of the two I could make out were clearly carrying different weapons.
Gotta' say though, I'm not too keen on the techno remix of Still Alive that fired up right at the end. But I still have the original on iPod, so it's not all bad. Beyond that, all I can say is watch this space. You will know more as soon as we do. Until then, comments below, as always.
