Originally gave this a 'Skip' rating, but I now rate it up to 'Recommend'. Note I am reviewing this game as a PC player. 

Let me get one thing clear: in order to enjoy this game, you need a computer with a really good graphics card and processor, a big screen (so you can see the amazing visuals in all their glory) and to play the game on Easy setting first. The combat is extremely terrible and tedious so I if you want to focus on the actual parkour, play on the easier setting so you don't waste too much time dealing with enemies that kill you with two punches. 

I also strongly recommend adjusting the controls, especially the mouse sensitivity as it's what you use to position your camera. It can mean the difference between running free and falling to your death. This game is also not the best at storytelling so if you want a game with actual plot and characters, check out Mirror's Edge Catalyst. 

Once I was able to get past all that, I was actually able to enjoy the game. The set pieces are great and Faith is a badass protagonist, and once you get the hang of the parkour, it becomes truly fun. Even if you have trouble actually playing the game I think it's important to have in your library because of the influence it had.

A really great Game, which I just wanted to watch briefly, but which tied me up to such a thing that I was about to play in one Go. The Music is great, the Graphics for the Age of the Game still good and the Jump & Run effect really has it in it. Until the Middle of the Game it is really Fun to follow the Story and pay attention in between to the secret Markings, which indicate that the Pockets still hidden here and there can be found, but which have no Effect on the Game. Unfortunately, the Difficulty from The middle of the Game attracts due to the Opponents/Chasers in such a way that you have no Or little time for such Things, because you also have to find the (right) way. Admittedly, the soldier/police officers do not now pose the Problem, they can also quickly beat KO to search for the Bags in Peace, no, it is the opposing Runners who are tired of three behind you. But I found the Final Opponent really difficult, where it took me at least a beaten 1 1/2 Hours to find the right Combination of Punches, Kicks and Evasive Maneuvers to defeat the one. On a large and Whole, a great Game, in which there is definitely no Boredom and, I think, a timeless Classic, because it has barely aged musically and graphically despite the Age.

Attention! The person who wants a spun squeaky platformer FPS game is deceived right at the Start,... we-rope there are actually only three To four colors in this Game ... The Rest is white. AND if that bothers, I don't know how to help, because if you don't even gamble through this Game, then you've missed something damn again! Have You always Wanted to jump over Roofs, master Parkours and all in the ego perspective? Have You ever thought in Fights: "Would I like to punch the Stupid Sow out of my Hand and like Back to sender crass it into the opponent's face?" Well, so is the approximate Principle of Mirror's Edge. As Miss Faith you jump over Dacher, brake through Opponents and have to prove your Finger skill of Fashion Combinations, and that ultimately wrapped up in an adventurous, maybe even somewhat dramatic Story. This Game demands Skill in many Places-So when there were Outlandable Despair when Playing Through, don't Worry about it, you're not the One on Earth. I have nothing to complain about for the Graphics, the Game develops its own Style. The Controls ... Well, you first need something to my Despise for "long enough" Time to get used to the complex Control, which is more recommended on The keyboard ... But vllt is the Matter Of taste. Verdict: Neat Graphics, with futuristic, if monotonous Style. Hammer Story. Action-packed skills scenes that drive Adrenaline. Some complex Control that seems difficult at first. But in so many Places you can find your own Ways to move Around:)-Is a great Game that grew into a Classic.
I've tried "Mirror's Edge" demo through xbox 360 and I was stunned. First time I've experienced first person freerunning game in such high detail and so awesome graphic style/design. I was fascinated and got hooked on the ever lasting action, atmosphere, story. I've finished the game in 10 hours though. Could have been longer, but as I think about it now. This game was "from the future".

The idea within the game is great but you can’t enjoy it. The controls are unresponsive and just don’t fit the active gameplay this game seems to provide. So it’s easy to get angry - also because you sometimes feel lost and don’t know where to go and what to do.
