First Person Parkour?

My personal favourite from the show: Mirror's Edge, due on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC late 2008 from EA DICE — the team behind the excellent Battlefield series. You'll play Faith, an information "runner" from a dizzying first person perspective as she traverses stunning cityscapes, using both Parkour (a gymnastic system of fluid movement around obstacles) and the martial art Wing Chung to evade and disarm enemies. You'll see motion trails as Faith builds up speed and the camera will spin when she somersaults. Vertigo and motion sickness could be an issue with this one, and I can't wait. — Danny Allen
