Video Game Review - Mirror's Edge

Mirror's Edge
This is a first person game where you see what the main character Faith sees. In this game you are a free runner who runs and does amazing jumps and acrobatics on rooftops and inside buildings and on walls. You have to save your sister and the police are after you too. The story gets a bit deeper when a certain society has other free runners after you who are trying to kill you.
The city in the game is the cleanest whitest city you will ever see and it is like it for a reason. Color plays a role in this game. Anything that is red is where you are supposed to go or climb on, etc... It sort of serves as a way to help guide you where to go so you dont lose your speed and such. It is a very inventive idea and works very well, the graphics in this game are very good and little touches like seeing your hands when you run and if you look down you see your feet are a very neat addition. The music is also very relaxing and gives you a peaceful feeling when you are on the tops of roofs.
Although kind of short, this game was a blast to play. I really hope they make a sequel.
There is also no shooting unless you really want to. You dont fire a single shot of anything unless you disarm someone shooting at you and take their weapon but you can throw it down and still not use it, it just slows you down and is unnecessary.
+Good graphics and great soundtrack
+Fun, unique, and very inventive
-No fighting or shooting may turn some off
-Short game


  1. So what you just run around? Is that all you do?

  2. a little more than that, i can show you it tomorrow if you are home any time after 2, it really gets your adrenaline going when you are running through buildings from the cops
