Default An excercise in frustration

I've just finished mirrors edge and while I enjoyed most of the game I definately think the high ratings it got were some way off.
Admittedly my ps3 controller is old and knackered and tends to stick but no game I've ever played has caused me to die so often due to the occasional microscopic move in the wrong direction (My wife banned me from playing when the kids were at home as I tend to swear a lot after doing the same sequence of jumps only to die at the easiest point in the level because after every direction changing wall jump the stupid woman would just walk off whatever tiny platform I'd manage to hit due to sticky controller syndrome.
Even prince of persia and god of war managed to build in a ledge grab if you did something stupid to give you a chance and they had a lot more fighting content where Mirrors edge is mainly wall running with the occasional takedown.
Apart from the ultra sensitive controls and the inability to see your characters feet without losing perspective on the rest of your surroundings it was a solid game although even with the continous stupid deaths it only took an afternoon to complete.
Did anyone else have the same problems as me? or can I just keep blaming it all on my controller
