Not sure if this is a glitch or already posted, but Mirror's Edge (X360) is listed new for $9.99 on the Best Buy website, which is funny because it's listed at $14.99 for a pre-owned copy....

I liked it a lot. I only played through it once but thoroughly enjoyed it. I actually got the achievement for not shooting any enemies in it which I thought was pretty cool

This was my first game on PS3 I bothered platinuming. Incredibly fun, really easy to pick up and play, but lots of replay value in the time trials and harder difficulties. Definitely worth the $10.

It's awesome. Anybody who says it isn't hates fun. And if for some reason you're still on the fence, there's a demo on XBLA.

I didn't play enough but it kind of gave me a little motion sickness. It's a pretty cool concept though and I do plan to go back to it eventually.

I would have probably preferred it be a third person game, but then I guess it wouldn't seem as original or "immersive". There is a clunky PC mod for that I know.

This is one of my favorite games of this console generation. It is so incredibly worth it.

It's not perfect, but I would say it's one of the best - and certainly most original - games I've played on the 360. I don't see how you can go wrong at 10 bucks.

I actually played this demo for the first time earlier this week and really enjoyed it.

Thanks for the heads up, I got my order placed with the Entertainment Free Shipping deal. :)

I wouldn't waste your time with this one. Sure it's got some interesting mechanics initially, but then it all becomes extremely repetitive and the physics aren't always consistent. $10 is cheap, but it's the 6-8 hours you'll never get back that hurts.

Thanks, OP. Just grabbed with the free shipping link. I wanted to try this game out for a while.

Meh, bought it $10 used a while ago. I didn't think it was as great as everyone says but it's still enjoyable. Pretty short too.

It depends on how you play it. If you want a nice story with lots of action sequences, you won't find it here. The story mode is basically a 3 hour tutorial. The game is built around time trials, and those are designed perfectly. You'll be playing those far more than the story mode, and they are far more fun. If you don't like that kind of thing, stay away from the game. If you are, do yourself a favor and download the map pack as well. It costs as much as the game, but can easily double the playtime.

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?

:/

It does become repetitive, but only if you let it. The trick is not just taking the obvious routes. The story is a bit cliché, but, like the guy above the guy above me said, the time trials are where its at.

Can't wait for ME2 (in like... 2015 or some shiz... fml).

I would say the complete opposite, you really can't go wrong for $10 with this game. It's one of the most original games of this generation and at 6-8 hours it's just about the right length. The only problem with the game is when they try to turn it into a more conventional FPS, it doesn't really work with the parkour mechanic.

The game is a lot of fun. It's not a game to keep and go through multiple times, but definitely worth it at this price.

One of my favorite games. Quite a challenge on the hardest difficulty when trying not to use any weapons. I only played the storyline, I didn't even touch the time trials.

Very hopeful for a ME2.

I'm surprised that people haven't already scored this title for $5-$10 already the $20 MSRP games are classic bogo or 50-75% off clearance/budget type deals. But it's a good game though

It's kind of annoying that anybody would imply this isn't a good buy at 10 bucks.

The story and single player campaign were good, the replay value, with the speed runs and time trials, and even finding the bags, was great imo.

And yes, the 'combat' wasn't good. Which is like saying that the jumping in Oblivion stunk.

Mirror's Edge was one of the best games of 2008, if not the best.
