    Leave la différence

    Been thinking about Mirror's Edge over the weekend and have started to get a familiar sinking feeling. And it's always the same with games that promise unbridled originality. First there's the announcement that pierces my usually impermeable aura of cynicism ('First-person combine harvester racing around a persistent, online farm in a photo-realistic virtual Norfolk?!

Look at the dung spatters! Look!). And it's all child-like optimism right up until preview code is released, whereupon, the crushing weight of my expectation of something genuinely original implodes on contact with a game that, short of being developed by angels out of golden drops of pure love, could never, ever be as good or as innovative as I think I want it to be (Yeah, it's sort of like MotorStorm but with crop-rotation. 67%').
