Product description

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.

Look. Let me get one thing clear first. The game looks AMAZING. And there is no other game like it. So Mirror's Edge gets 5/5 for both graphics and creativity; it's right up there with Portal when it comes to this. So one good star for the graphics. No question. For a game that was released in 2008/9, the visuals are nothing short of STUNNING - even half a decade later! But visuals don't make a game. If you bought this game because it looked pretty, you'll be in for a nasty surprise.

All you do in this game is run, run and run some more. While being chased by helicopters and soldiers more often than not. And if you arent being chased, then your job is to climb, climb and climb some more. The only hints you get as to where you are supposed to go is by pressing the Alt key to be shown the general direction, and the presence of bright red coloured objects that indicate your path. Problem is, oftentimes these objects only start glowing red when you are pretty close to them, so while you are running from pursuers you usually dont know exactly where to go. And you cant stop and check your surroundings because then you'll die from the gunfire.

Now all of this would have been fine if it had been implemented professionally like the much better mechanics of Assassin's Creed - AC is also a parkour game but you dont keep falling off in that game, do you? No, the game is so much more intuitive than this p.o.s. In Assassin's Creed your character intuitively grabs ledges, walks along ropes etc. without you having to press the right key combination in the right second or being forced to see your character plummeting to his death. And thats also why people like Assassins Creed (among other things like its historical setting). Mirror's Edge is different.

I've been gaming since about 1994 on and off. For years despite all the great releases, I've just not ever felt I've been hooked by a game. This game has the most exciting, involving physics and graphics I have seen in a long time. I completed it in 6 days and being very happy with the game overall, I was disappointed that it was over. The game is very original in that guns are not the be all and end all of battle, but in situations where you find yourself up against higher numbers, you can easily attack, take weapons and get into great firefights. The storyline is good, the ending is very Hollywood and the diversity of moves you are required to pull off and situations you are required to get out of puts this up with the very best and most exciting games I have seen released. It's fast paced, athletic, free-running style action and you can really get into the role of the caracter you're controlling. Some mixed reviews, but I think this game is visually stunning, awesome in its gameplay and very rewarding. Well done producers!

WOW!!! This game is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! It took me about 3 weeks to complete and i wasn't bored once! The freedom of the game is phenominal, you can leap across rooftops, shoot bad guys, its everything you would need in a game! I love the idea of the first person view, it's different but extremely effective.

The levels (chapters) have a great storyline with twists throughout the game. It is really challenging and kept me glued to the computer screen everyday. I have to admit, once or twice it juddered but within a few seconds it was back to normal.

Now, to the best part of the game (probably), the graphics. The 3d perseption of the city is extraordinary!!!!!!! In all, it is one of the best games i have ever played. I think i'll be able to play it again, but it will not be as effective as before because you kinda already know the plot.

I've gotta say, this is one of the best games I've played in a long time. The whole concept is a brilliant idea and I personally think EA and Dice have delivered.
Yes, this game can be frustrating at times (when you just keep missing that ledge) but that never makes me think about stopping. It's so addictive and when you nail a long run without fault the buzz just drives your addiction.
The combat is kind of limited but this isn't what the game is about and once you get really au fait with the control system the combat works out well.
Needless to say the story isn't up to much and has more holes than swiss cheese but hey, who cares?!
Anyways, to sum up this is a great game with really high levels of playability. Some of the chase scenes get totally absorbing and your heart starts racing! totally recommended!
p.s. I recommened using the xbox 360 controller to play it, works well!

...run away from another game that will try to slip SecuROM 7xx into our computers under the excuse of DRM.

...run away from another game that will keep spying and reporting on everyone who ever plays it, even long after completely uninstalling it.

...run away from another premium-priced game that will expire on you after only some months, after a couple of installations.

...run away from another EA game designed with insatiable greed in the mind and no respect whatsoever for its gamers/customers.

...run away.

And, in the best spirit of parkour, do not ever look back.
