Mirrors Edge anyone?

I dont have an Xbox or PSP (Wii person myself), but this game really caught my attention. Its a 1st person action game, uses the Unreal Engine 3, so youd expect it to be like Doom / Quake, but, apart from having a female lead I think its the fact that the city is so bright and clean that captures my attention.

Most 1st person shoot-em-ups are so grimy and dark, but this one looks like Gattica.

Would love to hear how it is from someone who's seen / played it.

Looks great, and is on my wishlist. I just finished tearing through Fallout 3 (which was by all counts excellent) so I'm looking forward to checking out a few others including this one and Little Big Planet.

I saw the commercial for Little Big Planet but don't get what that ones about? Not familiar with Mirrors Edge (we too are Wii, and PS3 and pretty much live on rock band these days).

The trailer for that game makes it look like a very advanced version of Nintendo Track and Field. They should include the power pad or whatever that device was called with every purchase of the game.

Little big planet looks great, but once i started to read more i got turned off - it seems that i had to build my own level before i could play them!

Ocean - i fritter away some time on rock band too. I'm getting good on the guitar / bass, while the girlfriend belts out the karaoke or beats the drums...

Hey Ocean - what do you call the feeling when you are quietly listening to the radio and one of your favorite rock band tracks comes on? goose bumps? Hells yeah!!

Every time a rock band song comes on the radio we all start air playing! Funny that you mention Maps, it was the first song my daughter learned the words to and we have played that one a MILION times!

Little Big Planet looks impossible to describe which is one of the reasons I'm looking forward to playing it. I'm sure there's some small barrier to entry as there is with any good game.

Mirror's Edge is a precursor game to a genre of more realistic free-runner games. Actually, Assassin's Creed was an amazing step for this type of action. I feel like Mirror's Edge will be largely fluff but fun to play for a bit.
