If you love Rennaisance-era Italy, then you're going to eat up this amazing game of cat and mouse with some of the most satisfying parkour action ever.
- "Mirror's Edge." This is one of the few true parkour games that, sadly, didn't get it quite right. Though the game looks gorgeous, too much of it takes place in crowded corridors and, thus, seems to undermine the whole idea behind parkour. However, it makes it on this list for having some truly breathtaking moments out in a vast city, giving for lots of room for parkour.
