From the Manufacturer

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.

I'll start by saying, I'm not including anything about the SecureROM thing. As much as I hate the reasoning behind it, it hasn't caused me any harm so far so consider it off the table with this review.

Mirror's Edge puts you in the trendy running shoes of a Runner, Faith, who gets sucked into a plot to (essentially) overthrown the government of a city in the not-so-distant future. The Runners are couriers that transport packages from point to point using Parkour (sometimes referred to as Freerunning though there is often debate about the similarities). Parkour is about getting between two points in the most efficient way possible. So, say you're on the rooftop of a building. A sane human would take the elevator down and take another elevator (or stairs) up to the other rooftop to get there. A Parkour runner would find a way (on the fly) to leap to the building.

The game makes it easy for you to get used to this idea by providing you with hints on Easy and Normal difficulties (Hard needs to be unlocked by finishing the game in one of the other difficulties and removes those hints). Also, the maps tend to be laid out in a way that makes it pretty intuitive to figure out where you need to go, though at times you're left scratching your head trying to figure out exactly how to get to that little air duct four stories up. There's another hint function that points you in the direction you're supposed to go but of course that doesn't tell you much about how to get there. To make matters worse, you're often being chased by police or Blues as they're referred to, especially as the game progresses.

The look and feel of the game is beautiful (to me at least).

Mirror's Edge is a first person running game developed by DICE. You play as Faith, a free runner. The story is set in a modern utopian society with a totalitarian government. Invasive surveillance is a part of life in this city and runners help exchange information between parties without getting caught.

Gameplay is the most admirable aspect, its not perfect but its very innovative and first of its kind. I was skeptical of how the game is going on handle, and it seemed baffling that DICE would not go the Prince of Persia route and make this a third person game. I remember there being a lot of talk in the press wondering why DICE are not making this a third person game. I am glad that DICE persisted with the first person perspective because Mirror's Edge is very unique.

Graphics can be stunning, some of the views from the tall buildings are beautiful and vertigo inducing. During the frantic chase sequences when there is a real rush to escape, vision tends to get a little blurry by the edges when leapt over rooftops and I could feel my stomach lurch forward at times. Playing this on my 24 inch monitor at 1920x1200 at highest settings with PhysX enabled is real treat. PhysX are supposed to be the selling point for PC version, but I did not find anything special about them - not that they are bad, but we have seen this in games all the way back to Max Payne 2.

I absolutely loved the soundtrack in this game. This ranks right up there with Halo for me. The theme song "Still Alive" by Lisa Miskovsky is now one of my favorite songs. Rest of the soundtrack includes some fast techno music which is perfect during free running segments. Voice acting is quite good as well. Sound is a very impressive aspect of this game.

Love the inertial preservation mechanics, cartoon cutscenes were incredibly lame. Beautifully lightmapped environments, was definitely worth the $11 I paid for it here on Amazon. Steam wanted twice that, seemed a little steep.

Amazon's proprietary multimedia download software is a terrible idea, I grabbed it on BitTorrent then used a legit serial # to activate.

Game was quite difficult until I figured out how to rebound off a walljump for extra height. I finished it in one session.

All great things are usually short, and this game is one of those great things.

Graphics wise, I can't say. I played this on my HP Pavilion g7-1273nr laptop with it's card Intel Graphics 3000. Also graphics settings were at thier lowest and honestly, the game still looked fantastic. The textures even at the lowest setting were great and the models are gorgeously defined. I could seriously make our the bumpy texture on industrial pipes in the game! Mid-chapter cutscenes are strictly CG-styled. I'm not a fan of this style as I believe the realistic look the characters have in-game realtime is better.

The plot lead you across the city from one place to another. Like an acrobat, you leap from all sorts of buildings, venting systems, pipes, cranes, elevators--everything! almost every ledge you see you can grab to make your steady getaway or go to your next location. Very fun and lets you use your imagination on how to want to reach your destination. I don't know how many times ive died in all the levels from the hard obstacles though. Thankfully the game doesn't penalize you when you die. Experiment as much as you want!

There is a bit of combat in the game as well. Through the game, you are marked as a criminal and must escape the authorities. You will be dodging assassins, SWAT teams, helicopters, and skilled fighters who will shoot, punch, and kick you down. You can steal thier weapons too! Lots of fun with machine guns and sniper rifles. (the shotguns were hard to use with this fast-paced gameplay) Master disarming enemies and controls with healthy imagination, and this game will be a funtime. Otherwise, prepare for some frustration. (if you do have trouble, there is a tutorial you can replay over and over)

All in all, This game is very exhilarating! If you enjoy acrobatic games like Prince of Persia (specifically Prince of Persia: Sands of Time) then you'd DEFINETLY love this!
