I'm currently enjoying Mirror's Edge. For anyone unfamiliar with it, it's a very unique parkour game with rooftop runners and a "Big Brother" society of police. However, in this case, the police are frustratingly intelligent (they have helicopters with side-mounted LMGs), the courses are mostly pre-set (very little variation on ways to get from A to B, so it's not very open-world), and the graphics are fanastic.
One very unique thing the game did was use cartoonish animations for cutscenes instead of cinematic movies, and I love it. A lot of games have beautiful cutscenes that make the normal graphics look terrible. In Mirror's Edge, the cutscenes are unique animated story moments and the rest of the game is realistic. Fantastic graphics. The hair of your character's shadow moves as the wind blows through it.
The best part of the game, for me, is that you CAN disarm a cop and use his shotgun to kill three others, but you don't want to. It's hard to explain, because there's an actual button for disarming cops at close range, and the shooting mechanics work well enough. They're also very realistic, in that you can't jump far when you're carrying a two-handed weapon and you can't reload (because you wouldn't have had time to actually grab spare ammo anyway). A cop can kill you in one shot at close range and it takes several to kill one of them. It can get frustrating but the fact that it's realistic makes it work. In reality, you would have no choice but to dodge and use only one magazine before making a break for it.
It costs $20 on Steam and I think it was worth it. Unfortunately, it has a lot of profanity, but you can turn voices off. Check it out sometime.
