Digital Spy writes: "First-person platformers may not be anything new, but with its unique focus on movement and momentum, Mirror's Edge is a highly innovative title. Although it feels like a first-person shooter, you'd better ditch those Halo reflexes quickly as this is an entirely different kettle of fish.
Taking on the role of Faith, a futuristic runner in a totalitarian society, the player must dash across the city's labyrinth of rooftops, delivering information and data to other members of her illegal covert group. With the establishment nipping at your heels, traversing the city's skyline is far from smooth sailing. Where there's dystopia, there's usually fascist police, and it won't take long for them to blow your head off if you stall for longer than a second."
