Mirror's Edge and Left 4 Dead: First 2 Hour Impressions

Posted by Anonymous Friday, January 16, 2009

Very coincidental that I got exactly 2 hours with both games. And now, here are my thoughts:

Mirror's Edge(PS3):

I'm liking it so far. It's getting a little obvious that they made runner-vision to make people look at things they would've never looked at before(in a bad way though). Unlike Portal which gave subtle hints as what you were supposed to do, Mirror's Edge seems to outright point it out. The only reason I have ever really only gotten pissed off was the enemies, but probably because I'm trying to beat it without shooting a single person. I'm up to chapter four and I'll let you guys know what I think after that.

Left 4 Dead(X360):

When I first read about this game, I was soooo damn excited. When I first SAW the game, I was a little dissapointed. Graphics are sub-par, and the gameplay also looked the same. When I heard someone's impressions about the game, I was like,"How does that happen in a game that looks like THAT???". Then, when I first played the game, I understand now.

It's F'ing amazing.

I might have played the game on a small 15" TV that might be 6 or 7 years old on 480 with audio that is kinda lacking and my inability to hear what other people were saying without a headset and not being able to hear the warnings of special zombies may have affected how I played, and the fact that I was playing split-screen pretty much meant I could not read a single thing on the TV.

If I loved it when I played like that, I wonder how much I'm going to love it when I play it on my TV.......I haven't had as much fun with a game as Left 4 Dead in a LONGGGGGG...LONGGGGGG time.
