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.

Hate the combat, running gets dull after a short while and the story is not very interesting...
Doing parcour combo's does make me feel like a badass, I admit, but most of the time faith just keeps missing
things I want her to grab and that really ruins the flow for me..
Not a long game, but still not short enough, since I got sick of it before completing
So I personally don't like it, but that's an opinion

Imagine an awesome first-person free running sim that made a spectacular city your playground.

Now imagine a dull corridor shooter.

That's the game.

Very beautiful and thoughtful experience. With the only flaw being it's length. One of the many undersold games that deserve a sequel.

Horrible gameplay, few alternative ways and full of gameplay killing bugs, I would strongly suggest to wait for the new Mirrors Edge.

Loving it!
There are some flaws though: Level design could be improved at some places, weapons and combat didn't need to be included, and it's a tad short.
Otherwise excellent game

This game is a fun little romp through a near future city. The simple use of color is quite nice. The controls can be confusing at first and the running isn't very forgiving, but all in all this a charming game.

This is one of the few games that I have played that can get away with having a pretty poopy story because its other aspects are so strong. For one, these graphics are incredibel for the time especially, the game itself is so fun it is stupid, and the mechanics are flawless. Honestly, this is so, so worth your time, despite what negatives you have heard here. If you like parkour or shooters, this is your game, for sure.

If there was one phrase i have to describe this game, it would be 'Prakour Galore'. Although the story seems a little lazy at times, it is a beatifully designed game with weapons, actions, and of course, Parkour. You play as a girl named Faith, your sister is your only family left and you plan to take her back. It has amazing cutscenes and still lets you know: Yes, you're still playing the story. The graphics are absolutley amazing with all of the reflections, ways to see the endless vastness of the brink of death. This game always keeps you on the edge, The Mirrors Edge

Graphics-10/10

Audio-9/10

Gameplay-10/10

Story-6/10

If you plan on getting Mirror's Edge Catalyst I would definitely get this first. A beautiful scenery with mostly smooth gameplay, it is well worth its price- the only downfall is it being slightly short, but you can always play it again to find the hidden items.

I forgot to breath so many times on this game ... 10/10 would forget again.
This game gives you all the things that a parkour individual does, throw you in a very amazing, colorful, alive city, put some folks to start shooting at you, play an amazing soundtrack in the background and you run, and try to find your way as fast as you can. I am not used to run away so it really gives that thrill of fast thinking and trying not to get hit.
New experience, great game.

Short but sweet game. A one of a kind really. Best part is...NO ORIGIN!!!! :D

The games controls feel a little on the clunky side. But, its not enough for me to not recommend it.

Also, $20 is steep. I'd wait for a dank sale as I originally did.

7/10 Would take leap of Faith again

Let me tell you something about Celeste Wilson. We were close friends in Mercurys lair. I know, right? It's so embarrassing. I don't even... Whatever. So then a month later, I started going out with my first city officer Miller who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to New Eden, and Celeste was like, weirdly jealous of him.

Like, if I would blow her off to meet with Miller, she'd be like, "Why didn't you invite me with?" And I'd be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-girls runner party, I was like, "Celeste, I can't invite you, because I think you're lesbian." I mean I couldn't have a lesbian at my party. There were gonna be girls there in their *Spandex*. I mean, right? She was a LESBIAN. So Celeste called Mercury and started yelling at him, it was so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. And then she dropped out of Mercurys group because no one would talk to her, and she came back in the fall after Kate was arrested, She was wearing some tight bodysuit and mask and she was totally weird, and now I guess she's on working with Project Icarus..

A fresh breath of air in the clouded FPS genre. A rather frustrating breath of fresh air, but still.

Combat: 6/10
Would be better if there wasn't much combat.

Parkour/movment flow: 8/10
A bit messed up, but I understand it's an older game.

There needs to be an option or different game type for a world where I can free roam.

8/10 overall

It is a very good game, the only thing is you need to make sure you have the vram performance to run it (my 740m should be able to max the game out at my native 1600 x 900 resolution, but because of the 64bit memory bus, it is severely bottlenecked and will not let me run smoothly at anything above 720p, even with the settings bottomed out. At 720p however I can easily get a constant 60fps with everything but AA maxxed)

Surprisingly good and unique game so far. Liking the clean looking world with primary colors and whites and greys. It reminds me of some counter strike source texture maps. Gameplay controls are quite simple but effective, while remaining minimalist. Looking forward to the next one in a few months!
