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...

    While learning the ropes may be frustrating, Mirror's Edge is a very satisfying experience when it's all said and done. It challenges yourWhile learning the ropes may be frustrating, Mirror's Edge is a very satisfying experience when it's all said and done. It challenges your gamer mettle. The feeling of overcoming those challenges is very rewarding. The game even manages to go out on a heartwarming note despite its ho-hum cliched dystopian setting. The complaints of length are accurate but we all know that while the value of most games is measured in time and how many gameplay hours you squeeze out of them, few others transcend that and are instead measured by the quality of the experience. Mirror's Edge is one such game. 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.

The parkour feel great and rewarding. I love the look of the city, It's unique and It's clean. It's still look pretty, even in 2016! My biggest concern are the combat, which is pretty limited and the guns aren't good and doesn't fit the character. Also, beware that this short. You can the campaign in 5 hours! You can collect the hidden bags and do speed run, but that pretty much it in terms of content. It's also linear. The story isn't interesting either. But for all his flaws, there only a handful of games that got parkour right like this, and for the price it is now, you should give it a shot, you won't regret it! Expand

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
