Sure, you can shoot a gun, but for the most part, it's all about jumping over and across stuff, hoping you don't miss your mark and die. That pretty much describes what a platformer generally is, but DICE attempts to do it all in the first-person perspective. That is not an ideal viewpoint to do any kind of jumping, but for the most part, DICE pulls it off with a great deal of success. There are potential advantages in using this perspective in this genre, and DICE fully realizes and uses said potential. There are a myriad of issues that could've definitely been given some fine-tuning, but for the most part, Mirror's Edge is absolutely worth a try."
