About This Game



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.

Features

  • Move yourself: String together an amazing arsenal of wall-runs, leaps, vaults and more, in fluid, acrobatic movements that turns every level of the urban environment to your advantage and salvation.
  • Immerse yourself: In first person every breath, every collision, every impact is acutely felt. Heights create real vertigo, movements flow naturally, collisions and bullet impacts create genuine fear and adrenaline.
  • Challenge yourself: Fight or flight. Your speed and agility allow you not only to evade, capture and perform daring escapes, but also to disable and disarm unwary opponents, in a mix of chase, puzzles, strategy and intense combat.
  • Free yourself: Runner vision allows you to see the city as they do. See the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, opportunities and escape routes. The flow is what keeps you running — what keeps you alive.

It's one of the most original FPS that came out, won awards for its originality but it didn't sell that good.
The game consist on parkour and you will die a couple of times but the view and adreneline it's just awesome.
I know you wont like the next bit, but I love playing this game more than Skyrim. I may have more hours on Skyrim but the game feels to big, yes that's the point, but, this game when you are mid-air it's just beautiful and vivid.

PS: Skyrim it's also realy realy good but EA did something good, and we should appriciate this due to the things they are doing to us (The Sims 4 is worst than the 3 and we have to buy the stuff that was for free). Wait for the one thats comming up with a open world.

Running and trying not to get caught: Mirror’s Edge was a fresh take on the FPS genre, and it excels at it. Great gameplay coupled with phenomenal art direction – a futuristic setting that’s believable.

In general terms it is a good game, you don't need to master the movements to enjoy it, but the fluency will be better if you do. Good: It gives the feeling of alternative routes, I never feel like one-track. Bad: Sometimes is not possible to avoid figth. Things to improve: I will include some "messenger" missions before the action starts, it will increase how much you go into the plot. The figth is terrible, sometimes your only chance is to run and try to get a weapom, and once you have it... it is extremely easy to kill everybody, a little bit unvalance on this side.

The only game that has ever given me motion sickness and made me feel how my parents must feel when they handle a pad with two analog sticks after the last experience they had was a NES pad.

IT'S PRETTY COOL THOUGH

Mirrors Edge

The Great Game That Nobody Bought

Before I start, ignore how long I have played this game. I mainly played this offline.

Mirrors Edge is a first person parkour game with some shooting elements. All combined highlights Faith's (the main character) trip through this beautiful city. The small details in the graphics, such as motion blur and even the dust particles when you land after a massive jump make this experience feel real at times. Highly recommended for fans of parkour based gameplay with the occasional fast paced, reflex combat.

Also this is one of the very few first person games where you can acually see your feet as well as your arms. Mirrors Edge is also a fantastic game because it still looks good even if you don't have a gaming PC to run it. Futhermore it doesn't take up that much space on your computer. (around 7 gigs or so)

The only downside to this game is that it is a bit too short (around 6 hours). Keep in mind this is pretty much the only downside to this game.

Verdict
9/10
"Parkour + Amazing Graphics + A Little Bit Of Shooting = A Game Worth Your Money"

Personal Rating : "Worth trying"
Traditional Rating : 7/10


Let's jump on conclusion, this one is a breakthrough of all platformer game with touch of 3D environment and well, running x jumping simulation.

The overall story and gameplay is so so, neither the soundacting. Sometimes the cutscene are the Faith itself or just a cartoon drawing. And until now I still don't know what Faith doing.
Despite of not-so-good story and roughly 5hours of gameplay, running and jumping a.k.a parkour, is always fun to do.
The UI in-game are so minimum it makes you feel like your really face the running and obstacles yourself.


the only, downside of this game, is countless trying.. sometimes the save point are so far away from the hardest part of the map, so everytime you die you need to run for a minute or two before facing the hard part again. Or sometimes its just too short from save point that when you respawn a second later you're already dead.

The cycles always the same, run > dead > loading > run > (almost got it) but dead > et cetera.
Im not fond of tryhard person, but it really iritates me when there's only a linear story and linear path to follow.


TL;DR
worth to try, easy to learn but hard to master. but no, it's not worth to master this game anyway.

Really great game built on a really good engine. The graphics are superb even though they are somewhat simplistic. It keeps you focused on the game and finding a path through each level (there are many differrent paths in each level). The story line is great however I think that they should have given more background information at the start of the game with a short movie as there are several things that don't get explained till well into the game which would make more sense if the backstory was told properly at the beginning.

Still I love this game and am looking forward to Mirror's Edge 2.

10/10 from me!

Great Visuals, Impressive gameplay
Despite its age Mirror's edge is a phenomenal game. It blew my mind the first time i played this and it made me feel as if i was free, I will admit that it does have a lack of story and that it isn't open world. But why would any of that matter, Its a Parkour game, I mean its nice to take a break from shooters and run around in a city. 8/10

This game is utter perfection. The design, gameplay, soundtrack, eben the way faith reacts when she takes damage is absolutely perfect. This is an EA game, and was made by DICE the same developer that brought us Battlefield. But this time it ISN'T completed with DLC, it ISN'T broken, and it IS beautiful!
