Given the immense success of the Battlefield series over the past seven years or so, it's not surprising that Sweden's premier developers DICE haven't really experimented with other franchises in that time. So it's refreshing and perhaps a little surprising that their first new IP in nearly a decade is such a unique and distinct take on the increasingly burgeoning First-Person Shooter genre. However, to describe Mirror's Edge as a FPS is a little inaccurate. While it takes place in a first-person perspective and there is shooting to be done, the label feels about as appropriate as calling Metroid Prime the same. And while Retro Studio's magnum opus is more of an adventure, likewise Mirror's Edge is very much a platformer at heart.
