Quite possibly one of the most beautiful and graphically unique games ever made. Note the excellent use of bloom effects and motion blur as well as the lack of green (in outdoor environments, look at the plants) in order to create a sterile environment.
Mirror's Edge PC Game play with Nvidia PhysX enabled.
Graphics are at 1680x1050 with everything maxed out (except AA, normally I'd have 2xAA however i had to turn it off for the recording). Otherwise everything usually runs pretty well at around 40 to 60 fps. Audio is rendered in 5.1 surround (not sure if the youtube encoder will keep it that way though.)
With PhysX you get stuff like advanced particle rendering (shattered glass, dust, litter, etc) and fabric (curtains, flags, tarp, cloth, plastic, etc) physics. When PhysX is turned off the glass shatters, but doesn't leave behind shrapnel, there is no dust/litter, and cloth will either not tear, or disappear altogether. As far as i know physX only works with nvidia 8-series or higher video cards.

The song is of course, Shine - Alcorus (this version is acoustic, unlike the Lisa Miskovsky version, which actually has singing.)
