The concept behind Mirror's Edge is fantastic. It takes the action and perspective of a first-person shooter, the jumping puzzles of a platform game, and the acrobatics of the Prince of Persia series and places them all among the rooftops of a large city in a near-future totalitarian state. The game sounds cool, it looks cool, and at times is really cool to play, but in the end it can't quite pull it all off. Mirror's Edge is certainly unique and innovative, but when it comes to gameplay it's more frustrating than it is fun.
