Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Mirror’s Edge from DICE and Electronic Arts for the PlayStation 3. Mirror’s Edge is also available for the Xbox 360. Linear in their design, each level is essentially an obstacle course. It’s your job to guide Faith through the levels as quickly as possible, using her knack for running and jumping to keep her out of harm’s way. And in that sense, Mirror’s Edge feels like a sort of first-person platformer—the game is designed entirely around the idea of finding optimal routes and racing through the levels as quickly as possible. This video review features video gameplay footage of Mirror’s Edge for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s Derek.
Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Rango from Electronic Arts for the PlayStation 3. Rango is also available for the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS. Rango borrows a lot from modern 3D platformers, mashing up platforming with other genres. Action, shooting — you do a lot of different things in this game, and surprisingly, they’re all pretty enjoyable, too. Rango is also a very pretty game, and one of the reasons for that is that the character assets and game art came from the halls of Industrial Light and Magic, which did the movie. Having actual assets from the film gives Rango an authentic look most movie-based games don’t have. This video review features video gameplay footage of Rango for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s Derek.
