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...

The parkour is very well choreographed as is the fighting although some leaps are beyond human possibility. The storyline is very original and intriguing to add the extra heat to the game. Characterisation is good as well. What makes Mirror's Edge stand out is how it is an enjoyable game and it doesn't involve gore and heavy violence. The game's graphics are beautiful if not a little bit too shiny and perfect. Overall this a must play and all audiences will like it. Expand

It is too short by far, the story line is terrible and the constant dying can get aggravating. However the game is really innovative and is great to see under this mesh of very similar first person games. Its also nice to see a fps using movement and hand to hand combat rather than just shooting to defeat foes.

    I really enjoyed it and hope there is another.

Followed this game for a while, but it's no where near as good as it could have been (EA). Instead of being the free roam like game it's explained as, it's just a set-area to follow. Then there's the fact that, like all EA games, there's a completely stupid, cliche story line, with a terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE twist. Much like good ol' Crysis, you'll, halfway through the short game, encounter super-enemies. Not only do these ruin the gameplay, but they're also incredibly stupid. That said, the story is also incredibly short. Once you've completed it once, in around 5 hours might i add, and you know where you're going, it turns into a 1 hour game, quite literally. The average ranking for the time trials are all under 10 minutes, which are easily beaten, along with the fact that there's only 9 levels. Then there's the fact that the 'online' is completely ruined by cheaters. This isn't just me being sore about not being top, these are clear and outright cheaters, completeing each level in around 3 seconds flat. EA should remove the clearly cheated scores to allow other players to actually enjoy the ranked system. Much like Assassins' Creed, this game will also force you into doing exactly what you're NOT supposed to be doing towards to end of the game. Namely, forcing you into combat with huge amounts of enemies. Not that this is incredibly difficult, but it is terrible when the weapon and fighting mechanics are disgusting to perform and watch. Each weapon behaves horribly, and your unarmed moves are incredibly limited. There's around 4 different moves. (wall kick, slide kick, disarm, punch). Lack of actual parkour moves are another weak point in the game. There's no fancy moves, just simple running, and wall running. That's literally all there is to the game, while the super-cops are able to perform backward flips and somersaults. All this aside, it's pretty much the only game of its kind. And there's quite a bit of fun to be had. Worth a try if you can stomach EA games. It's still fun to try and shave seconds off your best time per level. Expand

    a great concept and a great game. its to bad that the game is so short, and that some mechanics are bad.
    mirrors edges concept is done
    a great concept and a great game. its to bad that the game is so short, and that some mechanics are bad.
    mirrors edges concept is done masterfully. there is a real sense of speed, and they really nailed this aspect. the parkour and tricks are great. the animations like rolling and climbing really upgrade the. the visuals are spectacular and the artstyle is really cool.
    the game does have problems though. the game is really short. the shooting mechanics and fighting mechanics are just bad. theyre slugish and they dont work properly. this mechanics arent used to much in the game, but sometimes its impossible without them, and then you see theyre flaw. the story is also dull. the cutscenes are really weird and are overall under average.
    still, the game does what it promised to do. while its a bit short, its still a really fun and unique game!!!!
