Pre-Review: Mirror’s Edge

Content at a glance:

Mirror's Edge(TM) is an action game set in a futuristic world of 'runners,' 'Big Brother' surveillance, and adventure. Players control Faith, a courier who runs along rooftops, up pipes and around every kind of obstacle to get from point A to point B. Paramilitary forces called the "PK" are dispatched to eradicate runners like Faith, and they shoot at the player's character with various handguns, tazers, and machine guns. Players can also engage in firefights and hand-to-hand combat with the PK, and a slight red blood effect is emitted from wounded enemies. In addition, a cutscene depicts a dead man slumped over on his desk with his head lying in a small pool of red blood. Characters sometimes use profanity (e.g., "sh*t," "damn," and "bastard") during cutscenes and gameplay.

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. Flow is what keeps you running, what keeps you alive. 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.
