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.

Well, I've had a bit more time to fool around with this game and I had to alter my rating a bit. I sort of felt that even though the training item was all about running here and there, I would really get a chance to "look around a bit" once I really got into the game. Well, that's not the case. I've finished a bit of the game and all you seem to do is run from the "blues" and wonder where to go next to keep running. I found some of the jumps, even in easy mode, very hard to figure out. (In fact, I fell something like 50+ times trying to jump from one platform to another in the first episode. No fun for me!) The game does have a "hint" feature that's meant to be helpful, but sometimes you don't get the time to figure out what it's trying to tell you before the "blues" catch up to you and shoot you dead, (Over and Over and Over again until you figure out what to do!) You don't get the time to check out the area, in most cases at all, before your pushed to "run for it" or the "blues" will get you. I get that the idea of the game is to run to get away from pursuit, but even that kind of the game gives the player a chance to stop every once in a while and explore the surroundings. I did note one thing that was a bit helpful. While your "running", there are items that you can interact with along the path which are colored a reddish orange. That was helpful, but on more than one occasion I didn't get to "use" them as I only spotted them after running by them and from another view point. All in all, at this point, the game has been more frustrating than fun to play. We'll see......
The story is interesting, the simple conspiracy, betrayal, and fugitive story. Whats makes it interesting is that as a player we are encouraged to evade instead of fighting. Although it is possible to go into the 1st person shootout but with limited ammo, and no health.
The characters are enjoyable we learn about faiths past and why she needs to save what remains of her family.
The visuals are pretty good, i would like to add this is the first 1st person game i have playing in which you can see the person legs while looking down.
The only problems i have with the game is its so easy to die, when slip, a little shy on a jump, a round to the head and game over. the game restart is very quick which lessens the frustration. The WORST part of this game is the length. The game is over in a little over 3 hours, this game is fun but i would add perhaps two more chapters for the players enjoyment.
Get this game but after the finally movie we are left thinking what happens after words.
First off, I bought this on STEAM initially... and it wouldn't run on my (prior) machine. I've had bad luck with some STEAM versions recently, so I went ahead and bought the CD version here on Amazon (if nothing else, I'd get a slick music CD out of the bargain!). I had the same problem with the CD version, but was able to figure out the bug, and so I now have both, though I prefer the CD version because it allows me to run the added-content pack I downloaded (a non-story "race track" environment, not even really intended to be realistic, with no combat), something you can't do with the STEAM version.
The trick with my older card (also nVidia) was a single item in one of the config files. Do a web search to find it...
With my new card (and whole new computer, really), I can run it with maxed-out settings, however, and it's spectacular.
The game is VERY challenging, and it's occasionally frustrating when you have to repeat the same action multiple times (after reloads) to get the timing of a particular action "just so." (I'm taking about hitting keys on the keyboard at exactly the right number of milliseconds apart... my fingers aren't that accurate, dammit!)
But the beauty of the game... the style... the unadulterated FUN of doing things that, I'm certain, would result in me becoming "one with the asphalt" if I ever tried it in real life... that's hard to beat. It's a game I've already replayed, and it doesn't lose the "fun level."
It also doesn't lose the frustration level. I've got good reflexes and good coordination, both on the computer and in real life. Yet it's almost... ALMOST... too challenging for me.
The PhysX support does make the experience a lot better, too... or rather, makes it feel a lot more real. Helicopter blades stirring up debris, glass shattering in believable fashion, tarps blowing in the wind... all of that makes it so immersive I almost believe I'm really up there on the rooftops. The game is good without that, but it's better with it.
Is this my favorite game? No. But I have to admit, I've played this one more than almost anything else in the past four months or so... (Arkham Asylum might have taken a LITTLE more of my time). And for the price... you can't lose. GET IT.
