The servers are... back?

Yesterday I hopped on to work on my time trials and everything seemed normal. The servers were offline, as expected. Then I hopped over to YouTube (sure, I could've walked to my PC, but that would've taken effort ) to check out some time trial tutorials. When I went back to Mirror's Edge the servers were back online.

Normally this would be great news, right? Well, apparently stars that you earn online count when you're offline, but the reverse is not true. I found that I had gone from 66 stars when playing offline to a whopping 16 on the servers. Leaderboards and ghosts are great and all, but they're not worth having to redo everything.

Terrified that I had permanently lost my progress, I forced the game to let me play offline. There's no option for this if you can connect to the servers, so I unplugged my internet and went into the time trial menu, then plugged it back in and reconnected to Xbox Live. All 66 stars were still there. *phew*

You might be able to get new stars online and have them count offline, but I personally don't want to risk having all my progress overwritten by playing online.

I haven't checked back today to see if they're still there, but I would assume so; hopefully this post will help anyone confused about missing stars. Then again, if it was just a fluke and the servers aren't really back, I'll feel pretty stupid! :P

I was thinking about returning to this game to play the DLC. Can you still obtain all the achievements?

Oops, a little late... but yes, you can. Even if the servers are turned back off (I actually still haven't bothered checking), you can obtain all the speed run and time trial stars in offline mode.

its been awhile since ive played, but if i recall, when selecting time trials it will automatically try to connect to the servers; you have a short window, i think its B you hit to cancel searching and it will give you the option to play offline. no need to pull out internet cables.

Awesome, I think I might play this game this weekend and at least finish the story mode. I really enjoyed this game, I just never got around to finishing it.

The servers come and go, it seems to be kind of random. I've been working on the time trial for playground one, I must've played it like 20 times, it uploaded my score to the server on every run except for the time I got 3 stars it said unable to connect to the servers. Now it shows I only have 2 stars on this trial. Very frustrating.

I've just come back to this game after a bit of a break and as has been said the servers seem very random.

Though if you get 3 stars for example and it says it cant upload, hit retry and it usually works on the second attempt. At least that's been my experience

These servers are unbelievably irritating.

I've tried them a couple of times in the last week or so and they weren't working; it's a good job you can earn the achievements offline.
