Mirror's Edge dev bummed over curvier Faith

Justin McElroy

A larger-chested version of Mirror's Edge heroine Faith made the web rounds last month, leaving piles of controversy in her wake ... well, controversy and irreversibly stretched-out tank tops. Her face is a bit different too, as we're sure you noticed.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the image was fairly depressing for one of the game's producers. As Tom Farrer told MTV: "We really wanted to get away from the typical portrayal of women in games, that they're all just kind of tits and ass in a steel bikini. We wanted her to look athletic and fit and strong [enough] that she could do the things that she's doing."

It's a noble goal, and our hope is that it's one most people "got." Do you have a preference of Faiths?
