The moment the piano key hits you know that you are in for a treat. It’s that catchy part which wont get out of your head, and no matter where you hear it, you will know what it is. Still Alive from the Mirror’s Edge soundtrack adds those subtle piano keys through out their songs which reminds us of how a simple melody can keep us engaged.

Runners see this city in a different way. We see the flow. Rooftops become pathways and conduits, possibilities and escape routes. The flow is what keeps us running, keeps us alive. ~Faith

The opening cut scene explains that the possibilities are endless. I absolutely enjoyed how simple the art style of this game was. The main objectives were always in color and the surroundings a plain color. Combine that with the keys of a piano, and you have yourself a great track which flows with the game.
