The game has some occasional thrills as long as you look into more than the falters. The game is quite fast and you will like the fact that there are few flaws with the overall game, the visuals are clean and have stunning designs, I cannot forget to mention the greatly audible sound effects and soundtracks. The game however has its negatives which include scenes where its main character Faith tries to jump over some problems but he does not meet your expectations.

This game is designed in the modern day but it is an old-fashioned platformer. In this game you are supposed to replay a series of grabs jumps as well as slides until you perfect your game. In Mirror's Edge the game is more focused on speed and energy. The game is quite thrilling as well as satisfying. You will have to keep on slipping and sliding delightfully and at some point you will have a tedious stop to all this. Many gamers will find this game is fun but others will give up quite early. You will have to throw all your concentration in the game if you have to put up with its speed.

Here you have Faith who is a runner and in the Mirror's Edge society, runners are an underground system of dispatch riders whose work is to carry sensitive information and documents from the senders to their destination. The main story is based on Faiths sister who is a cop is setup for murder of a candidate who was supposed to be a mayor and had promised to bring change to the dictatorial government and bring hope to the runners living on the edge. So Faith is caught up trying to run a different mission of uncovering the truth to get her sister out of trouble and clear her name.

You will find the story interesting, it is straightforward and you will be fully engrossed. The story is played in cutscenes and the missions in between are stylishly animated and this gives the game a beautiful with a totally unique art style. In the game you will also be running on rooftops, through train stations and along walls the more you run, you will gain momentum and will soon be doing a number of moves in a sequence. You will be able to tackle moves like sliding under pipes, leaping across some impossible chasms. You need to note that all you do is done in the first person view and this gives the game a more interesting spin.

You will find the games visuals which contrast quite well to be very impressive. These colors make the game look clean and beautiful. When you encounter armed enemies it is advisable to run past them because their bullets can easily shoot you. So you run and look for the best escape route. Mirror's Edge can be said too have many things incorporated; it's fulfilling, infuriating, confusing at the same time invigorating. Even with it's flaws ,the game is one that makes some leaps which make the game overall pleasing.
