Really looks a lot like Mirror's Edge, but I doubt it's illegal. I don't think Parcouring with oversturated white can be secured for all media.

I'm from germany, saw the ad a couple of times, and never thought of Mirror's Edge to be honest. Just a similarity, but not plagiarism.

If they can sue them and get 40$mln to invest in ME2 then they should.

Because you don't have RUNNER'S VISION.

I only recently realized that those objects are not actually red. I've just never turned off Runner's Vision.

Mirrors Edge 2 is already happening, and EA has enough money as it is, you really want them to sue a small german company?




Assuming it is a small german company that is.

Not seeing it. It's free running in a sterile environment. Yes, I suppose ME did something similar, but this isn't exactly a straight rip-off, just somewhat similar.

It's one of three things with parkouring in it, but in the other two things some of the buildings aren't white.

United Internet AG is approximately half as big as Electronic Arts (employees, revenue) but has higher operating income. (4x as high)

The design, movements, character's look (not her nationality, but clothes, etc) are very reminiscent of Mirror's Edge, but it's not illegal or wrong. Interesting that the roles are reversed: videogames almost universally copy other media in aesthetic (Vice City, Fallout, Bioshock etc)

Considering the fact that Mirror's Edge plagiarized the shit out of those esurance TV ads with their animated cutscenes, I'd say things have come full circle.

My first thought. It's not that a girl is doing karthweels, it's that those look like the actual Mirror's Edge assets.

That Spider-Man movie trailer channeled Mirror's Edge harder imo
