Acerca de este juego

En una ciudad donde la información está controlada estrictamente, ágiles mensajeros llamados Runners transportan datos confidenciales lejos de ojos indiscretos. En este lugar que, a primera vista, parece un paraíso utópico, se ha cometido un delito. Tu hermana ha sido falsamente incriminada y a ti te están dando la caza. Eres un Runner llamado Faith — y tu historia será esta innovadora adventura en primera persona.
Mirror's Edge™ te pone en la piel de esta heroína sin antecedentes mientras cruza una ciudad que causa vértigos por su estructura, y se enfrenta a intensos combates y persecuciones al límite de la adrenalina. Te verás inmerso en el mundo de Faith, un mundo con un sentido del movimiento y una perspectiva únicos. Un mundo visceral, inmediato y muy peligroso.
¿Vivir o morir? ¿Elevarse o precipitar? Una cosa es indubitable: en esta ciudad aprenderás a correr. De los creadores de la revolucionaria franquicia Battlefield, Mirror's Edge es una experiencia sin antecedentes de acción y aventura.
  • Muévete: Despliega un arsenal increíble de movimientos incluyendo carreras por la pared, saltos, volteretas y más. Una serie de movimientos fluidos y acrobáticos te permetirá sacar partido a cada rincón de la ciudad para tu salvación
  • Sumérgete: En primera persona cada respiro, cada colisión, cada impacto se agudiza. Las alturas causan vértigos verdaderos, los movimientos fluyen con naturalidad, las colisiones y los proyéctiles producen un miedo real y aumentan la adrenalina.
  • Rétate a ti mismo: Lucha o huye. Tu velocidad y agilidad te permiten no solo evadir, capturar y llevar a cabo arriesgadas escapadas sino neutralizar y desarmar a tus incautos adversarios en una mezcla de persecución, rompecabezas estrategias y combates intensos.
  • Libérate: El sentido de visión del Runner te permite ver la ciudad como ellos lo harían. Vislumbra el camino. Los tejados se convierten en rutas y los conductos se vuelven vías de huida. Es flujo de movimiento es lo que te mantiene corriendo — lo que te mantiene vivo.

Despite not reaching mega sales numbers, this did OK when it came out. It has a big cult following and the demand for a sequel is so great that EA ordered for the sequel to be made. If you can catch this on sale, go for it. Or hell, just pony up the $20 for some good fun. It is a cool first-person platform jumper that really gives you a sense of being high up and doing dangerous things, like banging Josh Holmes mother without a rubber, the most dangerous job of them all. It is well produced and good in every aspect. This game is very fun and one of my all-time favorite games. Probably my favorite parkour game of all-time as well. This is definitely worth anyone's time and the sequel coming out soon should be badass also.

I love this game - but I also hate it's guts.
The game is so freakin' beautiful - but it's sorta a giant pile of bullsh!t.
Great idea - kinda horrible execution.
You're not really meant to use weapons - enemies have shotguns and are sorta, kinda really great at using them.
so on and so forth...

Regardless of my steam time played (1.3hrs as of writing this), I beat this game on PC before, and I played it more than half way through again on a friend's 360 a few years ago, so I think I can write a decent short review for it right now.

So the pictures and videos don't lie, the graphics look insane for a 2009 game even 7 years later, if they were to replace the character models, and get rid of the ugly comic book/anime cutscenes, or at least animate them a whole lot better, they can easily call it a remaster/remake/redux/re...whatever, and sell it at full price (Origin, though! >_<).

The gameplay is pretty decent and freerunning can be really fun when you get into the zone... til you get to a level where the world wants you to die, that is, and every citizen of, whatever this made up city is called, is blasting at you with a shotgun while you're struggling to find that piece of fence that doesn't have barbed wire on top. I mean, in those situations "rabbit hunting simulator" would be a better fitting title for the game, with the player being the scared wabbit.

Story is there, it's alright I guess, voice acting and music are good, it's all AAA quality I'd say, no need to go into details, you're here to run, dammit!

Ending song made a lot of nerdy boys and grils cry, I didn't like it very much, but maybe check out the Benassi remix, I don't know...

Anywho, it's a game that can make you hate yourself, and the world, but it's worth a playthrough. I mean you own it already, and if you don't, wtf dude-bro?! it was like $2.5 on sales and in a $1 bundle, I mean c'mon... with the sequel coming out, now is the time to play this fantastic abomination.

Final score 7.5/10

In a word: Janky.

Mirror's Edge is a game around parkour and flow.
It however doesn't flow; not easily.

In story mode, there is very little flow.
The levels are often broken up between puzzle-like climbing sections, where the aim is to get from A to B using the available structures, to arcadish shooter segments, running from A to B whilst being fired upon.
In both you are often funneled down a predetermined path. You must jump from here to here to progress. You must pass these dudes to progress. And very little of this lends itself to speed or flow.
To solve the puzzle you must stop and examine the environment, and to pass the shooters you must either stop and dispatch them with your own gun, or try to run straight at or through them as they fire at you (which doesn't work most of the time).

The best bits of the game are between these two segments, where you have space to move. Or when you are simply chased.
But these are fleeting, and often the physics of the game conspire to ruin these too.

For instance, run at a wall straight ahead and you will attempt to climb it. Run at it at an angle and you will wall run across it.
You can jump onto an object, or automatically vault it plummeting to your doom.
Leap at a guys head and knock him to the ground, or stand on them instead.
Or the most frustrating grab a ledge, or simply not and fall.
Some of these dichomotomies rarely trouble you, aside in small spaces where the difference between the two actions becomes hard to maintain.
But some are confused so often that it just leads to repeated attempts and failures.
Of course maybe I'm simply bad at the game.

There's a narrative too, such as it is.
It is very much a narrative of convenience. Things happen because they need to involve the main character, rather than occuring out of any sort of narrative cause.
Take the premise. You are a runner in a city because the guvment is cracking down on crime. And so the crime lords need stuff transported outside of the city's transport system I think.
These packages you're meant to be delivering? You never deliver any throughout the game. You never work. You are the worst courier the city has seen. But the crime lords are never seen either so I guess they can't be too mad.
Similarly the police have not cracked down on you because of fear of reprisal. Until they do, in the first chapter.

There is race mode, which involves chasing down your own time and that of your friend's ghosts.
You could probably try to beat the leader's too, if they weren't cheats with single second runs.
Still, this feels like a missed opportunity, as a true race mode, competing head to head parkouring around the city, sounds like great fun (and I think is the premise for Speed Runner, which I'm yet to play).

All in all, this game has a good premise with poor, even sloppy, execution.
Which is a huge shame.
A sequel is coming out soon though, so perhaps this will improve in the areas above.
In any case, either wait for the sequel to come out, or buy this in a sale if you're curious.

Wouldn't recommend.
Maybe play like Sonic Adventure 2, or Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 or 3.
It's not parkour, but the freedom of movement and the straight ignoring of physics to allow the flow to continue are there.
And the flow is all that matters.

Mirror's Edge is a game built solely on free running/parkour and fleeing from a new government's regime.
This includes reaching your destinations in unusual ways through roofs, obstacles and other wide or narrow spaces. All of this often leads to an encounter with armed forces which sometimes can be avoided or challenged through a combat.

Movement has a good flow until you reach combat. However, it can be sloppy from time to time and because of that your character might miss objects that you're supposed to hang onto like poles.

Combat is probably one of the worst aspects of this game. The melee part is kinda fine until you take possession of a gun. Its mechanics are literally crap. It would've been better if there were less combat because you can't avoid everything and you'll be forced to engage in it at some point anyways.

★ As for the story, it didn't seem to be interesting for me at all. I was really trying to get into it and make it grow on me but I still found it dull (many will disagree).

Music and graphics had a huge impact for this game's success. Soundtracks are relaxing and fits the theme. Moreover, colorful and minimalist graphic design added so much to this game visually that it distracted me from the gameplay just to enjoy the view.

Therefore, this game stands on the verge between + and - but I'll still recommend it since I enjoyed it to some extent.

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

TIPO DE HUEVO Y DESARROLLO EMBRIONARIO DE LAS TORTUGAS
Al igual que los huevos en sus hermanos reptiles y de las Aves, los huevos de las tortugas están rodeados por una membrana vitelina, tres capas de albumen y cutícula. Los huevos de las tortugas tienen un par de membranas de separación: una gruesa capa de albúmina y la concha calcárea. Estos huevos son situados en la tierra y son incubados en condiciones naturales, donde están expuestos a diversas condiciones como la temperatura y humedad relativa que pueden ser fundamentales para el desarrollo previo del huevo y del embrión que dentro este huevo se está desarrollando. El huevo es meroblástico telolecitico, el cual se caracteriza por que la yema o el polo animal se encuentra separado del polo vegetal, y en el caso de este tipo de huevo solo se divide para formar las tres capas embrionarias el polo animal. Cabe destacar que el desarrollo de las tortugas, previo a la fertilización, pasa por un clivaje o división celular que se caracteriza por ser discoidal, formando un blastodisco. Este blastodisco va a permitir el desarrollo de las tres capas germinales, que luego se van a dar lugar a la formación del embrión. Gracias a técnicas avanzadas de biología del desarrollo podemos obtener mapas de seguimiento celular, en los cuales podemos seguir una celular de cualquier capa germinal y determinar que tejido formara de acuerdo a la especificación de las células que lo componen. En las tortugas tenemos:

Ectodermo: formación de epidermis, cerebro (SNC), cresta neural, espina cordal.

Mesodermo: formación de músculos donde encontramos corazón somitas, caparazón o espaldar, plastrón, notocordio.

Endodermo: formación de tubo digestivo, hígado, intestinos.

Los organismos que pertenecen al grupo de los Testudines tienen un plan básico muy característico. Este plan básico se compone del desarrollo prolongado de sus vértebras torácicas, formando una espalda alongada que se le llama caparazón. Pero todo esto se desarrolla desde que el organismo es un embrión, por lo tanto el desarrollo del embrión es fundamental para el desarrollo del plan corporal del organismo ya salido del huevo. Los embriones de los Chelonios obtienen una porción sustancial del calcio usado en la osificación de los elementos esqueléticos de las superficies internas de la cáscara del huevo, lo que les permite tener un desarrollo sustancial en sus capas esqueléticas, lo cual parece ser determinante si observamos que las tortugas son cubiertas en su gran mayoría por estructura ósea. Los embriones de los Chelonios, gracias a su metabolismo, excretan gases respiratorios. Estos gases por proceso de difusión pasan por poros de la cáscara del huevo calcárea y por espacios entre las fibras del par de membranas del huevo. Esto es fundamental para el desarrollo del embrión dentro del huevo, dado que si estos gases se acumularan dentro del huevo podrían llegar a provocar la muerte del embrión, ya que podría llegar a romper las membranas del huevo antes de que el embrión se desarrolle totalmente. El metabolismo de los embriones de las tortugas depende de la temperatura y de las condiciones en las cuales son criadas, como ocurre con la mayoría de organismos ectotérmicos. Para cada especie de este orden, no parece haber una temperatura particular a la que el desarrollo embrionario, aún que en nuevos estudios se plantea y se estudia la idea que la temperatura es un factor determinante en la determinación del sexo del embrión que se desarrolla dentro del huevo, por lo tanto a diferentes temperaturas se obtendrá tasas diferentes de machos y de hembras en una puesta. Igualmente, las desviaciones abruptas del rango de temperaturas óptimas para el desarrollo del embrión provocan aumentos en las anomalías del desarrollo y / o la mortalidad embrionaria.

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.

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.

Played this in 2016, it does look good! Count around 6 hours of playing if you're like me and don't care about all hidden secrets but prefer running & playing the story. 6 hours isn't much, but eh, I got the game for free, and I enjoyed those 6 hours, so :)

The gameplay is very interesting, I played the entire thing with a xbox controller, and it's pleasant. The gunfights didn't exacly felt right (maybe it's the controller, go figure), but I still enjoyed to "shotgun those ninja's faces" (play it to understand!). I got about 3 or 4 good adrenaline rushes, but also felt like the game felt me 3 or 4 times (like: I swear I pushed the right button and I fell - and died - anyway. not kewl!). It's technical, but in general it goes quite smoothly, and the overall feeling is really good : run, run, (jump), run.

The story itself isn't really interesting, the plot has some severe holes in it... but it does make sense to run like a crazy-person and jump from roof to roof if you can look past these inconsistencies, and I believe that's the main point of this game. I could somewhat compare it to Dying Light freerun on top of which you'd add new moves.

Anyway, despite it being an "old" game in 2016, despite the story that could have been better and the lifespan double, I still recommend it to about anyone.
