Like its heroine, Faith, Mirror's Edge tries to hurdle some significant obstacles, but unlike Faith, it can't always make the leap. No doubt, this fascinating action platformer possesses its share of innovations, from a first-person perspective to a...

sought to dramatically change the conventions we hold for what a FPS can and should be

A brilliant first attempt at an original concept. The result of innovation is a fun game, but there is room for perfection.

At its core, Mirror's Edge is not innovative. It's a platformer. You'll run and jump across platforms, carefully timing each motion so you don't fall just as you've done for years. What is innovative though is the way EA Dice chose to present these...

While playing through Mirror's Edge, I found myself wishing I could bypass the combat entirely. It was tricky, confusing and felt tacked on all together. While I may be wishing for that for quite some time, the cheats and trainers for Mirror's Edge do...

EA: We've got a hot chick running for her life, doing death defying stunts in top tier graphics! How could it fail? Plus, a second opinion from Ramon Aranda.

EA takes a bold leap of faith.

While I have long since finished the story mode, I can tell that I'm not going to be done with Mirror's Edge any time soon. They unique gameplay means this is a game can't simply be traded in for the next genre game that rolls around, and the addictive...

Videogames can be a way to do things that a person might never get the chance to do in real life. Whether limited by finances, technology, or ability, most folk aren't going to get the chance to snowboard down an avalanching mountain, play in the NFL,...

First-person POV is a great idea ; Downloadable ghost runs ; Freerunning is a great idea for a game

First-person POV doesn't end up working all that well, with deaths a-plenty caused by difficult perception issues ; Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, etc ; Controls don't work reliably

I've only ever gotten motion sickness from two games: Mirror's Edge and Half Life 2. HL2 was worth the queasiness. Mirror's Edge wasn't.

Mirror's Edge makes an incredible first impression. From the moment you start the prologue to the second you end it, you will swear that it's the most viscerally exciting ten minutes in all of video game history. You'll call up your friends and regale...

Mirror's Edge is a lot of things, but it's certainly not boring. The game features the type of visceral action you've never seen before in a video game. The flip side to that is that you're forced to play through a lot of trial and error levels and...

Product Specifications

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.
