    Mirror’s Edge Catalyst feels better in many aspects and delivers much more content than its predecessor. It still has some issues like the combat system or frustrating climbing areas, but it is still an impressive argument for its unique and fresh concept.

    Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a solid reboot of the original game, with improved mechanics and a rich sandbox.

    Catalyst is not a flawless reboot, but it remains a very deep experience, filled with well-designed quests and interesting secondary activities; most of all, the game takes advantage of the environment in a clever way, making it strongly interactive for the players.

    Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is an exceptional sandbox. There’s nothing in the entire medium that feels quite as unique as being able to sprint, duck, and dive towards the horizon, making the most of the many varied paths on offer in this superbly sculpted playground. But when the game tries to be more than that, it begins to fall apart. Catalyst is certainly a step forward for Mirror’s Edge, but not the leap that it could be. If this is the return of Faith on a regular basis though, DICE have created the foundations for a very strong sequel indeed.

    DICE might have done its best to hide a quality game, but it’s still there beneath the piles of filler.

    The impression that Mirror's Edge Catalyst leaves is like a person with bones full of calcium, covered with weak flesh. A better implementation of story, characters, mission design and combat system should be the first priorities on a future sequel.

    Catalyst is a triumph of form over substance. At first the city looks huge, shiny and perfect but soon turns out to be just a lifeless, empty mockup, where you distinguish the districts mainly by background colors. The character development system feels artificial and redundant. The story and characters are so shallow and badly presented that I quickly lost any interest in them and focused on what the game does quite well – on parkour. [08/2016, p.60]

    This game is an 8 atleast, If you love the first this will be no exception. The graphics look much better with hyper graphics, just turn offThis game is an 8 atleast, If you love the first this will be no exception. The graphics look much better with hyper graphics, just turn off the runner vision and this game is way better than what most people played on the beta. The only bad points is the AI, and the drug adict arquitecture style of the city has. Expand

ME1 was master piece in this... but all in all, this game has excellent graphic, running and parkour is much better than in ME1, open world and side missions and light RPG gameplay are perfect bonuses. Oh and the city is too much futuristic to my taste. ME1 was not such sci-fi as this one. 9/10 Expand

    How do you make an original idea turn into a pile of crap, give a development team 8 years and force an unwanted open world system into aHow do you make an original idea turn into a pile of crap, give a development team 8 years and force an unwanted open world system into a game. The game has lost its fast paced nature, too much time going from point A to point B, there is too much down time. Way to go DICE/EA, another franchise has been ruined, well done guys. Expand
