The police were close behind as she sprinted across the rain-slicked roof, her flannel jacket whipping in the wind with lifelike movement as she continued to dodge her followers. Eventually she could no longer run, and had to stand up to the group of officers that were chasing her. She parried their blows and took them down, one by one, with quick (but somewhat realistic) blows.
We're not completely sure why she's such a good fighter, but we assume it will likely be explained in earlier segments of the game. Her prowess in battle wouldn't help her against bullets, though, so she needed to change her plan once additional police officers cornered her atop the train.
She turned towards the side of the train and jumped forward in what would look like a suicidal leap for anyone else. The police opened fire - but thanks to an ethereal shield summoned by Aiden, Jodie hit the ground unharmed with nary a bullet wound. She wasn't out of the woods yet, though - in fact, that's exactly where she landed.
More police officers with dogs took to the forest, and she attempted to elude them by sprinting deeper into the dark, rainy woods. After a run-in with police dogs and some quick rock climbing, Jodie found herself with a potential escape: a police motorcycle was on the road ahead, and only three officers guarded it.

Here, we got a glimpse at one of Aiden's most interesting abilities: possession. The ghost took to the sky once again, and made its way over to the officer with a yellow aura. Within a few moments, Aiden had full control of the cop, jumping into a police cruiser and smashing it against the road divider. While the other officers screamed and panicked, Jodie made off on the motorcycle, riding into the distance.
The police chase persisted, however, this time aided by a helicopter. We watched as Holmes swerved back and forth on the motorcycle, attempting to avoid the light, but it was of no use - the SWAT had set up in the town ahead, and though she was able to use Aiden's shield to smash through a blockade earlier, she was disabled when a sniper took out her ride as soon as she arrived. Now, Jodie had nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide. She was surrounded; she was backed into a corner.
At this point, producer David Cage took a moment to explain Aiden's power. Apparently, the angrier he is, the more powerful he is, and the angrier Jodie Holmes gets, the angrier Aiden gets. And right now, they were both plenty angry.
Aiden, now empowered, could do much more than throw a few coffee cups around. Right away he went to a nearby car and flipped it over, causing a large explosion. Without missing a beat he zoomed up to the snipers and took one over, popping two others in the back of the head before another took him down. The SWAT team was still moving in, though, so Aiden continued to lay waste to their numbers, possessing another to throw a grenade into a gas station, flipping more cars, and simply choking some out without even bothering to use any tricks. Aiden was pissed.
Though there will still more, and they were getting close. Jodie ran towards a nearby movie theater and, with Aiden's help, was able to blast in the door. She hid inside as Aiden ran back out, knocking a clock tower onto a group of officers, and, eventually, taking control of the helicopter pilot and smashing his chopper into the ground. The explosion rattled the building, and punctuated one of the most intense things we'd seen at E3.
Jodie walked down a burning street, surrounded by smoldering wreckage and corpses. She leaned down, picked up the SWAT team leader, stared right into his eyes, and said, "Tell them to leave me the f--k alone, because next time I'll kill everyone. Come on Aiden, I think they get the message."
