Mirror\'s Edge was a game originally released for consoles by EA and was actually a first person game. Instead of shooting or fighting your way through levels, the player was encouraged to run away and use the many acrobatic moves to escape. The game was most known for it\'s unique gameplay and awesome art style. Now the game has been brought over to the iPhone.

It originally was released for the iPad and has now been fully optimized for the retina display and faster processor of the iPhone 4. The object of this game is to run as fast as possible through the level maintaining speed and occasionally taking down the armed security. The gameplay is even smoother on the iPhone 4. There are few different ways to play through the game.

Players can choose to play through the game\'s campaign, do a speed run to try and take the lead, and even play splitscreen multiplayer. The game became pretty simple when playing through the campaign but where it really shined is trying to beat the leaderboard times and playing a level with a friend. Overall, if you liked the original game, you\'ll love this and if you love running games, this is one of the best available currently and looks amazing. Check it out.
