Summary

Mirror's Edge is both unique and stimulating, but it rapidly loses momentum after a great start.

We like

  • Visually stimulating
  • Simple, but fun to execute free-running moves

We dislike

  • Combat is useless
  • Enemies constantly on your tail gets annoying
  • Interior locations - bland level design
