Gamer 2.0 writes: "Mirror's Edge is a first person game based on movement. The character of Faith is a runner in a city where information is controlled at the price of freedom. The setup is merely incidental, of course, and not of primary importance. What is important here is that the first person perspective is no longer just an impetus for eviscerating alien swarms with authorial aiming, but an actual construct that enhances the potency of the visceral movement through the world. From that perspective it is not unlike Portal."
