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've been a traceur for several years now and had been even before this game was released. Some of the things done in this game are surely over-the-top but shown in a very realistic fashion. Everything Faith is able to do in the game has credibility to it, minus that she never gets so tired that she should stop to catch breath.
As the game is shown in first person, it is fun to play because you feel like you are doing the moves yourself. Everything looks great, too!
Even after completing it, it is a pleasure to come back to it and try different levels to find different routes and just have some super action FUN!

It is fairly rare to see an original concept or IP coming from EA, but that is what Mirror's Edge is. And it certainly isn't a bad game. The parkour is a very fun system to use, and even since this game came out, few other games have attempted the same thing. While it is fun and fluid enough, it isn't as extensive as I'd like it to be.
The city is also very nicely designed, and I love the aesthetic. However, a lot of environments are reused, and you'll get sick of seeing the same room again and again throughout the game.
The story is also decent, although they didn't do as well as they should have given the concept that they had. Also, some of the cutscenes done in a sort of cartoon (it could be anime or something like that, but I know very little about this kind of thing) style seem a little too arty and pretentious for my liking, and at times also seem like they just didn't have the budget for them and wanted to cover it up. Admittedly that's hardly their fault, but it's still a little annoying. The soundtrack is great though.
Overall, I'd recommend the game, but only on sale, as it isn't worth full price.

A great game that delivers tons of replay-ability! One of the few games that has actually gotten me to wanting to beat my former high scores and try to finish a route as fast as possible.
Even today it looks like a masterpiece and I truly believe that this game is a prime example to why games are art. The soundtrack, the gameplay and of course the amazing level designs and graphics makes one of the more memorable gaming experiences I've ever had.

Anyone who is a fan of parkour and this game knows that they can play it a houndred times and never get tired of it, i know i can.The first really good parkour game(and maybe the only one) that will always be fun to play.The world is unique by its design since its mostly white,red and orange and that is a good thing because it makes it look quite spectacular.Although this is a parkour game it has a story and bad guys that you have to fight.This game is mostly focused on fist fighting and not on gun play but it is still a very good game.I'm so excited for Mirror's Edge 2 which was announced at E3 this year and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.If you haven't played Mirror's Edge yet what's wrong with you ? Go and buy it.

I have played this game like 6 times (at least), so I consider myself as a big fan of the Mirror's Edge. The developers have some problems while finishing this game, so the end is a little bit fast and dissapointing. But it is still an amazing game that will stay in you heart a long after you have finished it.
The Mirror's Edge 2 was already announced, and I believe it will be succesful game. Mirror's Edge has found a milions of fans around the world for its special graphic, gameplay and story. I thing that Faith is the most distinctive female game character.
