The VideoGamer.com E308 award of bestest game of the show
Winner - Mirror's Edge, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Electronic Arts.
Wow. Just wow. You can read my three page hands-on preview here, for more detailed reasoning behind the choice of DICE's first-person Parkour game as VideoGamer.com's E308 Best Game of the Show. I'll add, though, that despite nearly two weeks passing since my time with the game, it's still gnawing at the back of my mind, prodding and probing my gaming desire. I want to explore, I want to take Faith places she never knew she could go, and I want to do it with style, something Mirror's Edge has in spades. I have concerns, for sure (the combat being the biggest) but they're concerns I'm confident DICE will satisfy over the coming months. Mirror's Edge has everything we love in a video game - intelligence, fresh ideas and a draw distance to die for. Congratulations EA, and congratulations DICE. This award is well deserved.
Runners up - Street Fighter 4, Gears of War 2
