Telegraph writes: "With the games industry ever-increasingly chasing the golden carrot of the 'expanded' market, a game like Mirror's Edge can seem a little out of place. Even series like Prince of Persia and Fable -part of most gamers' fabric for a while now- have done away with gaming tropes such as the inconvenience of death, all in the name of accessibility. Mirror's Edge is different, Mirror's Edge likes to punish you. And then it likes to kick you while you're down. Hard."
