Alien Isolation: Brief hands-on

Here’s some real life Mirror’s Edge


EA announced a next-generation reboot of the first-person parkour postal service simulator Mirror’s Edge at E3 this year, to the excitement of everybody who managed to play through the first game without vomiting on their own shoes. Here’s some real life Mirror’s Edge. turns out all you need to recreate the whole thing is red shoes, a Go Pro, a sexy glove and the ability to run up and down buildings like Spiderman.

The video comes courtesy of YouTube user Ampisound, who specialises in this parkour stuff. I tried parkour once, but I tripped over my own shoes before even putting them on. It’s probably not for me.

Some post-production editing to maker everything look white and red, and they’d have nailed it – but it’s still damned impressive, with some mighty free-running. Those of you prone to vertigo or motion sickness might want to look away.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    These parkour athletes must have been raised in countries with no clue what what stairs, elevators, roads, pavements, etc are actually used for.

  • Admiral Chief Awesomenaut

    Did anyone else get that weird feeling in your stomach watching this?

    • RinceThisandFINALLYlvUP!

      Yes, yes indeed. Not as much as @hammersteyn:disqus youtube though. Now I feel sick…

      • Admiral Chief Awesomenaut

    The only way I’d to parkour in real life is if I could quicksave and quickload

    • CypherGate

      Quicsave, Quickload or just flashback

  • Matthew Holliday

    Red shoes and a red glove and you can be Faith

  • Jonah Cash

    Seems like a good way to die… Jump on gargoyle, gargoyle breaks…. and the pavement breaks you… The end!!!

  • CypherGate

    Im not one to think of the worse case scenarios, but damn…. soooo many things could have gone wrong right there! They must practice these routes quite a lot before doing them.
