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......
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!
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.
