In this seemingly utopian paradise, a crime has been committed, your sister has been framed and now you are being hunted. You are a runner called faith - and this innovative first-person action-adventure is your story. Flow is what keeps you running, what keeps you alive. Mirror's Edge delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith's world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous. Live or die? Soar or plummet? One thing is certain: in this city you will learn how to run. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. Mirror's Edge is a videogame that definitely deserves a try, also on Pc. Its short length is the only complain we can mention about the campaign, because it's an incredible innovative title with a very powerful graphical side and an addictive gameplay proposal. A nice launching for this new saga that replaces the word 'brief' with the word 'intensity'.
  2. Mirrors Edge is an intense and intensely enjoyable experience from top to bottom that manages to capture a very interesting gameplay element and perfect it.
  3. 85
    While its elegant controls, visuals and audio weave a dreamlike tapestry that its animated cut-scenes do their best to eat away at, the whole is an experience you'd be remiss to let fly by if you missed it on consoles.
  4. Mirror’s Edge delightfully tickled my auditory senses.
  5. If anything, the only problem with Mirror's Edge is its relatively short story, which is only increased by the lack of a multiplayer component that does its gameplay justice. Nevertheless, Mirror's Edge is a solid and innovative title that takes the FPS genre and reminds it that things don't always need to stay the same.
  6. If you like an environmental puzzle game with some combat mixed in and like a little of betrayal on top, Mirror's Edge is the game for you. If you are looking for a game that will keep you hooked for days on end, this game is definitely something you can skip over.

    A brave but ultimately flawed game that only delivers on all that was promised in very short bursts. [Issue#16, p.58]

Not aThis is such a great game with superb production values! Got tons of action and excitement. keeps you wanting to push on until the end.. Not a very long game, which is how i like it...

    Music: great (trancey techno, ambient, space, etc).. loved it
    Controls: excellent... takes a short while to get used to it.. also got a good tutorial level
    world design: excellent .. looks like a pretty massive world..
    combat: excellent.. not too difficult, not too easy
    graphics: excellent.. however some sections had excessive colour saturation... story: pretty good, although I didn't follow the plot very well (probably me.. i confuse easily)

    definite must-buy...

    I took the chance on a mere £12 on Steam and I have to say, this is one of THE best games I've played in at least a year. I took the chance on a mere £12 on Steam and I have to say, this is one of THE best games I've played in at least a year. Exhilerating. I literally sweat (through my palms mostly!) when I play this game.. The graphics are breathtaking, the animations beautiful. The music is perfect. I haven't completed it yet, but I'm loving every minute. Well done developers. Expand

    This game is awsome! some say its all the same and repedative which ya it is, but not many games change all the time throughout except thoseThis game is awsome! some say its all the same and repedative which ya it is, but not many games change all the time throughout except those "RPG" types that have upgrades and whatnot which this isnt about. The story is ok but the gameplay is excellent for pc which some disagree (obviously not pc gamers who can adapt to certain controls) if you think the pc controls are difficult or oddly placed, no offence, but stick to your console system. The graphics are good, the music is good (not really music but more a theme of trying to get away). This game is just fun, especially for the price, its kinda like a first person prince of persia or assassins creed, but mainly focuses on the climbing and running aspect. The combat is minimal but there are times you have to take down a few soldiers which i found fun since its all about timing and trying to get them 1 on 1. Great game and i reccomend it to anyone who likes these kinda games, spend a minute and look at a youtube gameplay video to see if its for you. Expand

Controlling on a keyboard and mouse is faaaaar prefered The gameplay is mostly solid with minor quircks to get over (especially the combat). Controlling on a keyboard and mouse is faaaaar prefered than any version of a gamepad. Looks great even on a old machine. Has some stability issues but could mostly have to do with the fact i'm playing on a machine that is half six years old, half new. Story is kind of hokey and the writing can be straight up radiculously bad sometimes but all in all its bearable. Bummed that there isn't any additional content or an improved save system for the PC version, but as the game stands its great. Expand

    summary: In an era in which FPS games rule, I believe DICE came with quite a innovative almost daring concept: a fine mix of first person melee combat and puzzles. Combined with a unique graphical style and chilly music, they certainly made a remarkable game. There is definitely room for improvement here and there, but the result may certainly be seen. In the meantime EA has already announced a sequel, so letâ

Sometimes it isn't obvious where you're going - okay if you're doing a puzzle, but frustrating when you're being shot at and didn't notice the tiny little vent three storeys up behind a screen. I don't know how they could have resolved the police better - perhaps having them only appear in short bursts, to keep you on your toes? It's hard - how do you make running under pressure a challenge, when faced with bullets which travel near-instantly? I like this game - I really do. It's got the style, it's got good playing mechanics for the running... but the combat marrs it in parts. Also... small thing, lens flares of the sun which are behind buildings don't become occluded - whoops! Expand

It fails on everything, worst character ever, **** story ever, graphics, textures are bad even for the time it came out, glitchiest game ever. Its suposed to be a game made for parkour but it even sucks at that, the parkour is super glitchy she will sometime not grab to obvious objects even if you are looking straight at it. Dying light has a much better parkour system and its not even a game specially made for parkour. It is a unfinished low budget piece of **** Its the worst game i have ever played dont waste your time and money on this piece of **** Expand
