1UP writes: "Mirror's Edge, whether its creators want the pressure of the attention or not, has been pegged by the press as having the potential to be a triple-A, genre-changing title. Its concept incorporates parkour free-running into a first-person experience, set amongst the rooftops (from what we've seen) of a glimmering, open-world metropolis.
In the fictional city where "non-conformists are criminalized," underground community members exchange information using highly athletic, acrobatic "runners." Protagonist Faith is one of these runners, and with her sister kidnapped, her journey has become all the more personal. The story might sound a bit trite, but it makes for an excellent tie-in to the game's mechanics".
