Product Details

Product Description

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but fun June 21 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of my all-time favourite videogames.

Gameplay is challenging: besides timing your jumps properly, the enemies outnumber you, have weapons, and can knock you out faster than you can do the same to them. Fortunately, you spend more time running and exploring than fighting. The game also rewards you for taking a non-violent approach: running past enemies is easier than fighting them, and weapons slow you down.

The path you take to get through the levels is, for the most part, linear, but there are multiple routes through the environment making it a popular game for speed-running: there's almost always a faster alternate route.

The story told during the level loading screens is presented in a unique comic-book style, and some of the in-game cut-scenes are spectacularly cinematic. The story is engaging, but you can skip cut-scenes and it doesn't get in your face.

If you play this game, you'll definitely want to use a controller (you can pick up ~$25 ones from Amazon or your local game retailer). The default jump/crouch button mappings on the Xbox controller will feel a bit strange to Halo fans at first, but they're quite easy to pick up and allow movement that's far more fluid: you can keep your thumbs on the "move" and "look" sticks, and simultaneously jump, crouch and attack (I now wish I could remap Halo to be like Mirror's Edge - if I could, nobody could touch me!). The only complaint I have with the controls is that some actions are context-based (e.g.: the attack key punches when you're standing and kicks when moving and crouching), meaning your character doesn't always do what you envisioned in your mind.

Couldn't get the damn thing to run, despite upgrades to a system that met the recommended requirements prior to installation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but Securom..... Feb. 26 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game, really fun and thrilling

SECUROM - Still cannot believe EA puts that crap in each and every package. SECUROM DOESN'T STOP NOR HELP STOP GAME COPYING, if anything, it helps it. So why hinder paying clients??? Unless they want to spy on their clients... But I'd get ahead of myself there... ;-P

What hits EA sales most is not their games quality... It's that SECUROM spyware! That's one great game, but it will remain on my 360 and like all EA games, will stay VERY FAR AWAY from my PC.

EA - Greedy bunch with no respect for the customer, nor the developers...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty fun but too short! Sept. 24 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Once I installed the right graphics card, I had a lot of fun playing this game. I found it easy enough to get the hang of and found it shot my adrenaline right up there when I ran into a bit of trouble!

The basic format is you're running across roof tops, jumping, sliding, falling, rolling and occationally you end up fighting a cop or two, though generally it's better to simply run past the law instead of engaging them. It is not excessively violent, especially if you choose to run instead of engage in combat. What I think I liked most about recieving damage is if you keep yourself out of trouble for a few seconds, you return to full health. No searching for powerups and health packs, which is old and annoying. You do have to find some runner bags, but the game does not depend on this - you can still finish if you never get more than the first bag (which is a freebee) and all bags have a mark near by to indicate you oughta look more closely at your surroundings. This is helpful because you are on the run and you don't always have time to investigate every nook and cranny around you.

You also don't have to collect lives. You can die a hundred times, reset to the last checkpoint and go again. No playing for three hours, dying on your last life and getting sent back to the beginning. The frustration level in this game is low, but the challenges are still interesting and, well, a challenge. My only complaint with the game is it was too short. I finished it in ten hours. Would love to see a second installment that goes on longer. The concept is very cool and kept me on the edge of my seat for most of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game with interesting concepts March 4 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You can't deny that this game is very innovative. The way the gameplay is makes it one of the most original game of 2008. The feeling you get playing is very immersive. You don't want to stop running!

Another great feature of this game is the video sequences between the levels. They are in a cartoon-ish style. I think it makes a great contrast between the gameplay.

But this game isn't perfect. For one, it is very short. If you are an hardcore gamer, you will be finished in 5 to 6 hours. The game is best played in small sessions, I think. At least, there is a time trial mode (now with downloadable maps)

Another shortcoming is the combat. Some people really dislike it. I don't think it's that bad. It is more of a "try and error" style, because you can die lots of time before getting the timing right and finding the best path to kill all the bad guys. And don't hesitate to use the guns! I think a more traditionnal style of fighting would have been even more immersive.

In short, the game is very fun and innovative, but short.
