I originally got this on the PS3 because I wanted the pre-order bonus messenger bag that came with it. The graphics weren't that great as it only ran at 720p and 30 fps. As such, there were jaggies all over the place, and it was difficult to get the necessary sense of speed.

The PC version changed all that. The fact that you can pretty much run the game at 60 fps all the time is a huge help. The PhysX effects aren't much, but they do add to the immersion. I'd definitely put ME in my top 10 favorite games of all time, and maybe even the top 5. The only major annoyance is that the time-trial DLC add-on pack is not compatible with the Steam version of the game. Minor trade-off I suppose because the DLC pack requires EA's stupid DRM/downloader program running at all times, and I don't care too much to do the trials.

Loved this game as well. Since it was made by DICE, the guys that make battlefield, I read that they were thinking about incorporating some of the game mechanics into future battlefield titles. We'll see if that happens, actually the upcoming Brink game looks like an fps with these elements

There was an article written for a PC mag here in AU where DICE admitted to some areas of the game they weren't happy with at all. Especially the combat. which they promise they will approve on for the next game. They are making a sequel, just not any time soon. ::

Unfortunately I don't think the first one was a huge seller so I doubt DICE is rushing to get it out

It is one of their top priority IPs actually. I saw a Joystiq/Kotaku article on that about 6 months ago. Surprising actually, I thought this franchise would go nowhere.

So is Erin E-surance a runner? When will there be a crossover?

They were working on an iPhone game, but I think it was delayed in order to be ported to the iPad as well.

I'd love for a proper sequel to have an open world in the city where the original game is set.

Sales is not always the key thing... Mirror's Edge and Dead Space both achieved massive brand awareness, which is more important than sales to these large companies sometimes. An improved sequel has an automatic leg-up since everyone already knows the name... it's the reason Crysis 2 is called that despite being so different and on consoles for the first time, it's why Halo sells millions every time it comes out, it's why Modern Warfare 2 had the Call of Duty tag on it after all.
