Once this city used to pulse with energy; dirty and dangerous, but alive and
wonderful. Now it is something else. The changes came slowly at first. Most did
not realise or did not care, and accepted them. They chose a comfortable life.
Some didn't. They became our clients.
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
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
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.

mirrors edge is a game your either gonna love or hate, its very short and unless your interested in going through the game again and trying to beat the par times or you love time trials then there isn't much for you here but for everyone that instantly likes this game then its pretty darn amazing, the story is pretty pointless but running on roof tops and actually nailing sections of the game smoothly is like no other game and that is what sets this apart, if you have any interest in free running then buy this game.

This is fun while it lasted with its heart pumping levels this made me think it's a great game.<br />The multiplayer is quite weak with it's time trial mode where you have to beat ghosts trying to get to checkpoints in a quick time.<br />The single player will take you 5-10 hours on easy and 10-15 on hard depending on how good you are. <br /><br />The story is you play as Faith a runner in the city and your sister (kate a police officer) has been framed of a murder of (which she didn't do) so you have to prove her innocence.<br />The cut scenes are in a cartoon form which some players might not like.<br />Although this is made from the creators of Battlefield there is a lack of weapons but there are cool combat takedowns like doing a kick whilst wall running.<br /><br />If it was abit longer and maybe a sandbox a level editor and competitive multiplayer modes this could of been one of EA's best franchises. <br />There is a sequel coming out which I hope will fix the flaws of this game.
