But then I read the fact sheet and watched the first footage, and then it hit me, a delayed pause that followed a "wow." That was about all I could think of at the time. I let all of the info sink in and asked myself "are EA and DICE actually making a game where the act of 'free running' is the concept of the game?" Yes! And to top it all off, much of it takes place hundreds of feet above ground. So how does this new take on the first-person genre fair? As you can see, quite well.
EA's all new I.P. deserves all the recognition it can get. Truly a newfound element to explore in both the genre and industry, Mirror's Edge is perhaps one of the coolest projects of the generation thus far. It's the kind of game where you take one of your wildest fantasies and relive them vicariously through a controller. The gameplay is like a mixture of Jackie Chan's finest stunts, with the opening scene of 007 Casino Royale, and all of those free-running clips and commerials you've seen over the years. With all that in mind, there's no wonder why the game has piqued the interest of many gamers all around the world, especially those who are in awe of free-running."
