Mirror's Edge tribute video shows real-life first-person parkour

The announcement of Mirror's Edge 2 has inspired Parkour production house Ampisound to bolt a camera to a runner's face and send them flipping and rolling across some rooftops in tribute to DICE's first-person jumper. Sure, there are no snipers, no armed police, no trace of an oppressive yet remarkably clean dystopia; even so, it's a spectacular array of acrobatics that mirror the game in a way that's made more stomach churning through real life's annoying lack of checkpoints.

To see more humans doing things that they weren't designed, you can catch Ampisound's other showreels here.

Mirror's Edge 2 was announced at this year's E3, where DICE presented a short reveal trailer that featured altogether more thwacking and smacking.
