In a Flash

I actually haven't picked up anything to play in over a week. Seeing as how taxing the Xenogears DFB turned out to be, I thought I earned myself a small break. Now I'm looking at the last two titles I'm considering next for delving into(I'll probably announce which tomorrow). Anyway, I did manage to check out something and it wasn't what I expected it to be. I thought the next time I picked up Mirror's Edge, it would be to download the DLC pack that recently came out. However, it seems I've found some love for Faith again through her browser game. Sponsored by EA, Mirror's Edge 2D (developed by Borne) is a 2D side-scrolling scrolling game that anyone can play in their internet browser. The beta was up last year, but I imagine most missed it (at least I know I did) in lieu of the always dreadful holiday jam-packing (not to mention Mirror's Edge's release itself). What this nifty little flash game does extremely well is translate the exhausting sense of pace that most people referenced "feeling" in it's console counterpart. As it is right now, it's a bit of a tease, but possibly more levels will be added as time passes. I'd even argue it's quality is enough to consider porting to a handheld later on down the road (given the game is given a significant amount of additions). If you have an hour or two to spare, you might be surprised with it, so check it out.
