Digital Life Review: Mirror's Edge

Jason Hill writes: "One of the most exciting attributes of interactive games is they can let you feel what it is like to be in exotic shoes. The first-person perspective is most effective at conveying this illusion, and Mirror's Edge uses it powerfully to create a unique and spectacular action game. Leaping across skyscraper rooftops, scaling walls, sliding under obstacles and outrunning your pursuers is exhilarating (and could even be vertigo-inducing).

Players control a striking and hip young female "runner", a breathtakingly nimble courier who ferries sensitive information for those fighting an oppressive government. The story, which soon sees Faith's sister framed for murder, is slight and silly, but all you really have to know is that you need to run, and run fast.

Character movement is convincing, with our parkour protagonist building momentum as she sprints. Carefully timed button presses ensure fluid navigation over or under hurdles." (Mirror's Edge, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/5
