After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    MIrrors Edge

    Mirrors Edge is a newer game with a very different take on the First Person Shooter genre. The reason is that the main character rarely uses a firearm to take out the enemies but instead uses speed and “free running” tactics to get around.  Mirrors Edge is a very fast moving game with acrobatic stunt jumping from rooftop to rooftop. The graphics are just absolutely stunning with a true DirectX 10 support.
    Mirrors edge was tested using everything turned up high and 8x Anti-Aliasing, and with 16x Anisotropic. Mirrors Edge is placed mainly on top of roofs with lots of hard straight lines that need lots of anti-aliasing in order to keep the jaggedness from looking just horrible.
    Mirror's Edge has a setting to cap the framerate at 60FPS, this helps to provide smoother graphics when you are actually playing the game, however when its being used as a benchmark gives us a nice chart full of color.  The important numbers to notice are at the 2560 x 1600 resolution and be mindful of the actual number as the chart can be deceiving.
