Mirror's Edge

Amazon.co.uk Review

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great title now at bargain prices 26 Nov 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Give this game a little understanding and you will find it excellent.

Great graphics with a deliberate art style. Unique gameplay - at least I can't think of another platformer played from a first person perspective.

The combat has been deliberately made tricky as your character is not some super soldier but a delivery girl. I presume the idea is to make you play it more as it should be played - as a platformer. Some people are disappointed with this but the game was never designed to be a shooter. There is a nice convenient button to slow time when you want to disarm someone with a gun, then its up to you to try and shoot it out with the cops or keep running and dodging and disarming your way through the level. I must admit that a few times I took the easier and more cautious route of picking up the guns rather than the trickier method where you don't shoot anyone.

I can't think of another game to compare the feeling to when you get moving through sections in a fluid way. Controls are simple to pick up and work well.

Levels are a good size and can be very challenging but with well placed checkpoints you never have to go back so far that it annoys you if you miss one of the jumps and plummet to your death.

A good number of time trials are available in addition to the story mode. You can download the ghosts of the top players to see how they clear the runs and see if you can keep up.

Not as easy to get into as something like the call of duty games but more rewarding.

4.0 out of 5 stars A leap of faith 14 May 2009
By Stevie G VINE VOICE
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PlayStation3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
With mixed reviews, and an underwhelming demo, Mirrors Edge almost passed me by. DICEs parkour game is actually rather good, and feels like the fledgling steps of an emerging genre. Its certainly a unique experience.

The game could have been disastrous, as platform sections in FPS games are monumentally awful. The controls do much to remedy this, feeling intuitive with a steady learning curve. The shoulder buttons control most of Faiths abilities. She jumps by pressing L1, and ducks with L2. In motion, these moves are chained together to increase her running speed. For example, Faith can coil her body in mid jump to travel greater distances. The animation for busting through doors is suitably dramatic, and maintains the sense of urgency. Other feature include slow motion, especially useful during balance beam sections, and for disarming enemies. Holding circle prompts her to look in the direction of the intended destination, which also proves invaluable.

Sprinting over rooftops is truly exhilarating, being persued by trigger happy cops equally so. The linear stages are disguised well, as multiple routes lead to the same objective. Due to the games sudden death nature, restarts will occur regularly. But logically spaced checkpoints help ensure frustration is kept to a minimum.
Single player is fairly short lived. To extend play, 3 runner packages are located on every level, and a speed run option becomes available upon completion. A large selection of time attack stages are also unlocked once the relevant criteria is met. Time attack is arguably Mirrors Edge at its finest, boiled down to its purest and most enjoyable aspect - free running. In addition, a comprehensive library unlocks concept art, music and videos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating 22 Jan 2012
By GratuitousViolets TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Mirror's Edge is a game that although is well thought out, I find a few flaws with in general.

The story is pretty good: you play Faith, a free-runner who delivers highly sensitive information by running, vaulting and swinging from building to building using ziplines, poles, and her agility.

The graphics are sharp (on LED it's a little eyewateringly sharp) and crisp although slightly too bright at times leading to eye pain and headaches on occasion.

Gameplay itself is quite complicated and difficult to manuoever at times as you play in first person you can't really see where you're (Faith) is going to land. Some leaps and bounds are so incredibly tricky you might end up re-doing it fifty times and only end up managing on chance rather than skill. Unfortunately combat isn't a thing in the game that is focused heavily on, as you will find Faith doing more running and escaping.

For me, I found it hard to get into the story as it was too much falling from one false move and too much being killed far too easily. It takes SO much work to get the right moves and it takes alot of focus to remember your surroundings when you're looking at things in first person perspective.

It's playable but not the greatest game I've played on PS3.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new genre the FPP? 12 April 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Now, I don't like platform games- the arbitrary nature of having to do a particular thing in a pixel exact manner, usually without any hints as to what to do, or how to do it, leading to death after death after death. I also don't like FPS games- floating about with that one stick for move one for look that is just as unreal as any third person game, only a zillion times harder to master.

So, this game, which is really a First Person Platform game (the first ever?) should be my idea of hell. Instead, it's become one of my favourite games of all time.

The main reason for that is dynamic of the FP perspective- you can see yourself as you move, and movement feels like you're in contact with the ground when you are, and in the air when you're in the air. Jumping up and over something looks and feels like you're jumping up and over something.

The visual design is distinctive (if a bit limited colour scheme wise- although the city at night in later levels I thought looked beautiful), and the cut scenes are a nice change in looking like normal animation. OK, the story is portentous without being deep, and not particularly original, but they can sort that out in a sequel.

The main problem is difficulty, which like many FPS and platform games is in places absurd- even on easy (at least it has an easy). This game has clearly been made in the mindset of games are supposed to be difficult to make them good- but what's the point of that if people just get annoyed and switch off after the 20th time they've tried to complete a bit? We're not all 14 year old lads who can spend 14 hours a day playing a game. Indeed, I think some of the difficulty is simply to hide what is a relatively short game, but then COD4 is short too.
