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.


  • 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.

Really good game but too short; it takes about 4-5 hours to finish it. There isn't much to do after you have finished the game.


-Excellent parkour
-Amazing graphics
-Beautiful atmosphere
-Good music


-Combat feels dull sometimes
-Sometimes annoying because you don't have any idea where to go next
-Ending was a bit dull

Overall a 9,5 game.

I recommend it!

I finished the game just under 9 hours, and among frustration, experimentation and the thrill of adrenaline, I recommend this game.
It’s a sad, dystopian future, where mega corporations control the world. Among conformity and corruption, the main character (Faith) lives life as a Runner. It’s sort of a rebel/delivery mail, highly skilled individual. It’s interesting, and without spoiling any further, her journey becomes personal, with a touch of vendetta to it. Nothing original, but it worked for me.
The gameplay can be frustrating, and I bet most negative reviewers didn’t have patience to get familiar with the controls, but once you overcome that (and it can take some time), it becomes exciting and even scary to do the crazy parkour required to progress. Quick note: the visuals are beautiful, rendered in Unreal Engine with great colors.
The enemies with guns killed me so many times, until I finally realized I was no match for an armed opponent, finally deciding to avoid them at all costs and find cover. If you knock one of them out and grab the gun, the game changes and it becomes easy to murder everyone, but I didn’t find that as appealing as escaping. Now, when the enemy runners started appearing and chasing me, I don’t know why, but that freaked me out. A lot. Maybe it’s because the sense of mobility and acrobatics was something unique to my character. I felt safe, knowing that the cops couldn’t reach me once I climbed out of their reach, but the enemy runner could. Their masks also added a tone of creepiness I enjoyed. 
I’ll also be honest and say that I wish the characters had more depth and that the story was longer. I wanted to explore the whole city and walk among the pedestrians unnoticed. Still, it’s a good game.
Buy it, but expect some practice and time to get used to the controls. Persevere and you’ll be rewarded with awesome parkour and amazing views.

Mirror's Edge is definitely the best platformer I've ever played.

The concept of not playing another first person shooter is refreshing but then game ruins it by introducing awful gunplay .First person platforming is not completely original idea but Mirror's Edge provides more variety for jumps and techniques .

I think game fails to progressively add more intuitive options to gameplay . If you played it for 1 hour you pretty much have seen eveything that it has to offer in terms of moves .Sliding down the building like Jackie Chan is awesome but then you realize that was about the most exciting thing that happen (well jumping on train is fun too but you don't even die face cheking metal bar going 60 mph )

Gunplay is by far the worst part about M'S Edge . If they designed the game around need for guns it would be even better . I would prefer if they would provide move options to fight enemies if not unlock new melee moves .

Running away from Bullets is extremely silly . I have a complete disbelief for what is happening around me . Who the hell shoots unarmed woman running next to a window with assault rifle ( and can't kill her running directly toward gun ) . Perhaps this game should have been Platforming/Beathemup , with no guns at all .

The artstyle is alright . Personally I think it is a little too *%$& bright sometimes but other than that I like aethetic side of it . Although I wish it would have more upbeat techno music .

7/10 Mirror's Edge is very much linear so there is almost no creative ways to approching a problem . You just move from point A to poing B with poor gunplay and minimal fighting options . There is a lot of downtime in this game to do mindless platforming which I find a bit boring . It is uniqe enough to play it once but I am not really crazy about buying sequal .

Excellent game, great gameplay, engaging story. The combat is a little bit disappointing in that you can't go around the gaurds without them automatically knowing where you are.

One of the best parkouring games, but not the best in my opinion. Ill still give it a 10/10. Recommended to try if you like parkouring, fighting and evading.

The first first-person parkour game. If you want experience parkour but too lazy to work out or don;t wanna break your bones, this is a very nice alternative.

Whether you want to be a urban ninja or simply fill yourself up with the conceit from knowing that even your potato can run this game, Mirror's Edge delivers.

Not much to say as it is a very good game. However, they should add a "remove particales" button as my computer shoots down to 1 FPS when a window is shot out.

Definitely one my favorite games of all time. The visuals and art style are both super great, and I loved the pulsating soundtrack. This game has a great feeling of immersion, from the sounds you hear to the way the camera moves, and it's all so memorable and super enjoyable. You really feel like you're in the action. Although the game was fairly short, I think that's more reason to appreciate every level and the detail to explore. I loved every level and the cutscenes. If you're looking for a fun first person platformer/parkour, try this game out. You might love it.

I recommend this game to pass a few hours but you won't be amazed.

Breathtakingly beautiful in its stark minimalism, MIrror's Edge is a graceful foray into first-person platforming. For the first time ever, I felt like I was truly IN a first-person game, my elbow flying up to tuck in my head during a roll after a particularly high jump.

Exhilarating, heart-thumping fun.
