12, Mirror's Edge (NR)
Never has platforming felt more satisfying to me than while running through the game's colorful environments. The platforming is so good that it is easy to feel disappointed when you resort to a gun or get into a fist fight. Visually the game is a spectacle and there is plenty of creativity in the level design. Having the opportunity to do more free running after playing through the storyline is where you can really focus at how efficient you can make your runs. The controls really give you the feel of being able to do what you want to do and that when you make mistakes it was usually something that was your fault and that's incredibly important for this kind of experience. For what it was, combat was fairly good, but it just didn't reach the same incredible level that the platforming did.
Primarily an RPG player but have interest in any game that will make me think.
