Free running has become a trend in video games lately. The art form of making leaps from roof top to scaffold onto moving vehicle naturally has an appeal for a fast moving platform game. Sonic and Mario can tell you all about it, as they're experts on the trade. Pulling off a string of moves can give you an adrenaline rush of excitement, whereas attempting the same section more than ten times can cause frustration and a flying control pad (towards something breakable, or someone). Welcome to Mirror's Edge, a contemporary first person action platform game that expects you to sprint through the entire adventure and hope for the best.
