This game is a bit strange. It reminds me of a cross between the old apple 2e Prince of Persia meets sonic the hedghog. The game is about speed, you want to rush to the end as fast as you can. The game mechanics are kind of cool, it plays by touch gestures, you swipe horizontal in the direction you wish to go, to jump swipe up, to slide swipe down while running, to jump kick swipe up the swipe in the direction you are traveling. You run, jump, climb, wall walk, jump up and down shafts by bouncing off the walls. The graphics are some of the best on the ipad so far. Kind of like an old school pc game meets dreamcast kind of look.
This is an offshoot of the Console mirrors edge which is like a fps meets plat form game. There are 14 levels, and you can beat the game in one sitting. The saving grace is the race mode where two people can race against each other, this is really fun, it splits the screen and allows for two people to play on one iPad, very cool. Social gaming is very cool on the iPad when more than one person can put their hands on the iPad at the same time. There is also a time trial mode. The game will only set you back $12.99. It is a short game but the quality is really up the for an IPAD game. GRAPHICS; 8, GAMEPLAY: 8, SOUND: 6, OVERALL: 7.6 out of 10.
