Yes, we've gotten our paws on Mirror's Edge before, and yes it continues to impress us. We took Faith through her leaping, sliding and running workout until we'd disarmed a couple of enemies, made several nigh-impossible jumps, and finally hurled her through the sky in an effort to grab onto the skid of a hovering helicopter. We made it, luckily. The audio was barely discernible over the din of the crowd, but when you hear Faith pant and grunt while booking it up a wall-climb, it puts you on the edge of your seat just a tad more.
"Now when you hit empty, Faith holds onto the gun and you have to decide when to chuck it."
A fairly sizeable crowd had gathered behind us while we played, and every time we got Faith killed (read: several) they would all go "Awwwwwwww!" When we surprisingly nailed the helicopter grab on the first try, they all went "YEAH!" Everyone should play games with a big audience watching, it really makes you feel like there are real stakes at risk. We can't wait to tuck and roll with the full version of this.
