Mirror’s Edge to Be Rated an 18 by the BBFC?

According to a listing I stumbled upon while on the HMV website, Mirrors Edge is to be given an 18 by the BBFC. And while the rating is to be confirmed (as stated by the TBC on the PS3 boxart of the game), it also puts the game down for October 24th.

I’ll go out on a limb and say while we have only seen one trailer plus half a dozen screens, Mirrors Edge doesn’t look like a type of game to deserve a 18, it should really deserve an 16 at a push.

But then, may we see something in the game that isnt suited for under 18′s? Well, we need to find out more info on the game, most likely more info coming out at E3 in nearly a month and a half, before people can judge if the game deserves a 18.
