Summary

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.

Mirror's Edge is a delightful tangent from the traditional gameplay elements that keep much of the FPS genre stagnant. The addition of a female protagonist is refreshing, even if the grander story arc doesn't exactly break new ground. The game does suffer a bit from technical issues here and there, but not nearly enough to make it not worth the effort.

Mirror's Edge is many things: invigorating, infuriating, fulfilling, and confusing. It isn't for everybody, and it stumbles often for a game that holds velocity in such high esteem. But even with all of its foibles and frustrations, it makes some impressive leaps; it just doesn't nail the landing.

There's a distinctive flow and rhythm to DICE's Mirror's Edge, letting you bound across obstacle courses with seemingly inhuman strength and agility. Though the disarm system isn't as immediately accessible as the platform-hopping mechanics, with some practice you'll eventually find you can slide, dash and smash for long, continuous stretches, a thrill reminiscent of Sonic the Hedgehog's early days.
