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.

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.
Unique gamefverret | Nov. 5, 2013 | See all fverret's reviews »
Mirror's Edge is a great game with a fantastic ambiance. I love being able to run across rooftops and even inside buildings. However, the scope of the levels is quite limited and I would have liked a more open world. The mission pushes you forward, so you rarely have time to just enjoy yourself. The gunplay also feels out of place; I feel the developer should have focused on disarm and hand-to-hand combat for the protagonist. As a runner, it feels weird to pick up a big automatic weapon to kill my enemies, especially since they are usually just doing their job.
Still, this is a unique experience with a lot of personality. It should be played. Hopefully, we will see another Mirror's Edge with a slightly better focus in the future.
Cool looking and well pulled off.SuburbanWalrus | Oct. 29, 2013 | See all SuburbanWalrus's reviews »
A great view of a dystopian future, and some inventive gameplay.

This is the first decent game I have found that incorporates parkour and shooting together. The many different kinds of tricks that you can pull out going all over the map really sets this game apart from most rpgs. The graphics are a cross between half-life 2 and portal with a little more cartoonish edge. Following the plot line in a comic strip like 2D setting does make this game seem a little less than it could ahve been. The combat system is realistic, where you slow down depending on the size of your gun and the inability to hold multiple clips of ammo, making the game somewhat strategic. This game has put an interesting twist on rpgs and is worth the money.
