Want some adrenaline pumping through your iPad? Besides waiting for the iPad, there nothing more exciting than plying Mirror’s Edge from EA Mobile on your shiny new iPad. Run, Jump, Climb, Skid and Slide on high-rise rooftops in a 3D modeled city as Faith Connors – an underground “Runner” who must stop a deadly threat in a “perfect society” full of sinister surveillance and relentless pursuers. The graphics look amazingly sharp and much crisper than the iPhone version of the app.

While Mirror’s Edge for the iPad has its faults, primarily a lamely told story, the occasional confusing level, some unnecessary combat, and a short campaign, it definitely succeeds in being a fun and impressive game. As far as launch titles go, it is one of the best of the bunch because of the intuitive control and signature style. The sense of speed and fluidity of motion that are conveyed when the game is hitting on all cylinders makes for some exciting gameplay. I won’t go as far to say that the Mirror’s Edge series is a better fit in this 2D style, as it can’t convey the immersive qualities of the more finicky, first-person experience, but it works incredibly well as a straightforward action game. When boiled down to these basics, Mirror’s Edge on the iPad may be a bit on the short side, but it’s long on fun.

Pour ce qui est de proposer une réinvention intelligente avec des contrôles sensitifs de ce que les jeux de plates-formes peuvent offrir, Mirror's Edge réussit brillamment. Bien qu'il ne soit absolument pas parfait, et qu'il manque un peu d'étoffe à certains endroits, c'est un jeu qui montre que l'appareil à un brillant avenir devant lui.

Anders als mit dem großen Vorbild gelingt den schwedischen Entwicklern diesmal leider nicht mehr als ein interaktives »Lola rennt« für zwischendurch. Faiths Handheld-Lauf sieht zwar toll aus und klingt dank Auszügen aus dem Original-Soundtrack auch so – spielerisch dünnt das gelegentliche Hindernis-Ausweichen in Verbindung mit der trägen Steuerung allerdings zu schnell aus. Die Geschichte ist zum Vergessen, Gegner sind selten eine Gefahr, Abwechslung hält sich in starken Grenzen und nach einer Stunde ist es ohnehin vorbei. Ist man im Rhythmus, springt und klettert man durchaus elegant über das stimmungsvolle Dächermeer. Die weltweiten Ranglisten wecken zudem den Sportsgeist und der geteilte Mehrspieler-Bildschirm sorgt für vorzüglich spaßige Minuten. Von der Klasse des Original-Jump&Run ist diese harmlose Mini-Hopserei allerdings weit entfernt.
