Posts Tagged ‘Preview’
There were three games that I’ve been following the development on closely for they look(ed) really promising. Alone in the Dark was one of them but it was released recently to some poor reviews despite the unique gameplay aspects and item mechanics it uses. Another was delayed and is now not scheduled to come out until next year (I’ll discuss that one in a later post). The third is a game called Mirror’s Edge developed by DICE, first announced in the summer of 2007. Mirror’s Edge is a first-person action adventure game with some shooter elements. Although the emphasize is on avoidance rather than fighting. When I first heard about it, I was mildly intrigued as the mention of parkour elements being a core part of the game play. I had already given thought to how cool a game with parkour or free running would be. It wouldn’t even need to be a parkour game. It would just need to include it.
