Mirror's Edge for iPhone - App Review

Mirror's Edge for iPhone by EA recently debuted in the app store. [iTunes Link]  This is one game I was pretty excited to get my hands on.  If you own an iPhone 4, odds are, you won't be disappointed as all graphics are beautifully optimized for the retina display.  There's also a version available for the iPad which clocks in at a bit higher of a price.  We'll look at that version in a later review as well.  For now, click on through to read a full review and see tons of screenshots for the iPhone version!

Quick Review: Mirror's Edge or iPad

Mirror's Edge is flat-out fun. More than any other game I've tried on the iPad so far, it shows what the potential for gaming on the platform can be. The basic mechanics of the game are simple: you control Faith, sending her running over the city and through tunnels to, well, do something that clearly has The Man unhappy. Whatever, the story is secondary. You control the game with a series of simple gestures - swipes left, right, up, and down - with the occasional tilt here and there. There are no health indicators, ammo bars, or anything else to get in your way.

I think it's a great game for iPad because you can perform these swipes without covering up half the screen - you can always see the action and it really does feel pretty immersive.

The game is relatively simple to beat in story mode, but there's plenty of extras to keep you in the game - including speed runs, going back to find hidden bags, and even a multiplayer option. It's a little pricey at $12.99, but it's addictive enough that I've lost a solid two hours to the game just toda. It's only through great force of will that I was able to stop playing long enough to write this quick take.
