While it's hard to pull such moves off in real life, the latest game from DICE and EA – Mirror's Edge – makes such extremes as scaling a chain link fence or jumping from one building's rooftop to the next seem like mere child's play. It's an impressive game from a style and gameplay point-of-view, but one that is ultimately hurt by the things it does well.
You play as Faith, a Runner in an Orwellian society where individualism isn't preached anymore, and everything is just a little too clean and neat. Runners are the messengers of the anarchist, however, and properly get their messages to their clients without anyone standing in their way. Faith, however, finds a routine message run turn into a fight for her life, as she gets involved in a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of Runner life, and one that could ultimately keep their world from ever changing."
