In a city where information is heavily monitored, agile couriers called Runners transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. 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.
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. From the makers of the groundbreaking Battlefield franchise, Mirror's Edge is an action-adventure experience unlike any other.
Move yourself: String together an amazing arsenal of wall-runs, leaps, vaults and more, in fluid, acrobatic movements that turns every level of the urban environment to your advantage and salvation.
Immerse yourself: In first person every breath, every collision, every impact is acutely felt. Heights create real vertigo, movements flow naturally, collisions and bullet impacts create genuine fear and adrenaline.
Challenge yourself: Fight or flight. Your speed and agility allow you not only to evade, capture and perform daring escapes, but also to disable and disarm unwary opponents, in a mix of chase, puzzles, strategy and intense combat.
Free yourself: Runner vision allows you to see the city as they do. See the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, opportunities and escape routes. The flow is what keeps you running — what keeps you alive.

This game is beautiful. Not only in game play and graphics, but the controls are the best I've seen in some time. Comfortable and responsive, these controls are easily changeable without compromising the game play, and the reaction time feature is amazing. (Reaction time is generated by free running, and slows down the game on command) The levels are quite decent, having to think about each jump for leaping. The first time you play, the recommended route will be highlighted in red, but upon completion, "Hard" mode will be unlocked, allowing you to figure out your own route, as well as making the combat more difficult. Combat is in depth, but can be avoided if desired. Lighting and graphics are AMAZING.

Parkour in a game? That's something that most game designers don't think about, except for EA. This game is very unique because it has parkour and is also in first person view. I guess it makes you feel like you're the person in the game as you're playing the game itself. The length of the game is pretty decent with 9 chapters. There's also a chapter 0, but that chapter's relatively short, so I wouldn't really call it a chapter. Part 2 is currently in the making, so I recommend buying this game before part 2 comes out, or you can wait it out to see if the price for this one drops when part 2 comes out.
Very Intersting and FunPercyro | Jan. 8, 2014 | See all Percyro's reviews »
The first thing I noticed about this game is how different it is from most games I play. The game focuses a lot on parkour and hand-to-hand combat. This doesn't bother me, in fact I think this makes the game unique. The environment looks very nice and the graphics are pretty good. The cut scenes aren't really my style, but that's little to complain about. Everything seems to handle well. The controls were slightly difficult to begin with (not all, just some), but after the tutorial I was pretty much set. I think this game is very fun and should definitely be bought by those looking for a game with an intriguing story and fun parkour action.

I got Mirror's edge for PC when it was still expensive for console. It's a great game. At first, you might feel alil dizzy and confused because it is SUPER first-person view, but you get used to it. Story: Tbh, I haven't finished it myself, and it's not because I don't enjoy it, mainly because I've been busy. So far, the story is interesting and with meaning. And it doesn't feel that far off from our own world, so it's nice to see that it is in line with reality. Gameplay: Once again, confusing and hard to adapt to. Once you get a few minutes in though you will pick up everything you need to know and be wall running everywhere. The game is very realistic too (as annoying as that is) -- falling from a two floor drop will make you grunt and take damage (as any normal person would). The graphics are great, make sure you can take this baby up to high quality settings for the best experience. Overall: Very good game, enough to convince me to get Mirror's Edge 2 (whenever it finally comes out).
A cult classicPatofilio | Nov. 16, 2013 | See all Patofilio's reviews »
Mirrors Edge is a game that is different from anything we have seen before, a first person shooter game based around Parkour and while it may sound strange DICE found a way to make it work.
Story: The story for Mirror's Edge is pretty good since it revolves around the changes in government within an intriguing city. The characters you meet are interesting, but don't expect anything ground breaking.
Gameplay: This is where the game truly shines and it is in its parkour inspired movement. Your best weapon are your feet, climbing walls, sliding under pipes and jumping from hide buildings is insanely fun and incredibly easy to do, but also difficult to master, the first person look fits perfectly, making you truly feel like a runner. Gun play however is not as good, but fortunately you will rarely find yourself in need of a gun, most of the game can be easily beaten by running from your enemies rather than confronting them directly.
Overal Mirror's Edge is a pretty good game, with some interesting mechanics that are not for everyone but are definitely worth trying. A true cult classic and an underdog in the genre Mirror's Edge is the game you'll want to play at least once.
