GOG release: “Mirror’s Edge”

DICE‘s sequel of the first-person runner is already out, but the original is still worth playing, especially now that it’s DRM-free on GOG.

The story is a rather conventional dystopian one with main protagonist Faith, a Runner who carries data from rooftop to rooftop and whose sister has been framed for a crime, trying to outrun the system. She might not be the deepest character and the story has a few holes, but it serves well as a background for the unconventional gameplay.

In contrast to other FPS games, shooting is only possible when evading enemies and pulling their weapons from them. Most of the time it’s really running from one area to the next, which involves climbing, wall and ledge jumping. While this is certainly too much for people with motion sickness, the way everything runs smoothly as in the best of platformers speaks for the quality of the game. I played it years ago on the Xbox 360, and even if I had to take pauses in between plays, it was an unforgettable experience.

The graphics still look great with a unique visual style and really good sound design, even after seven years after its original release. The game is now available on GOG with a 50% discount that will last until September 29, 12:59 PM UTC.
