    Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a must-have experience that defies the doubters and makes those who had hoped now believe.

    Boring or irritating characters and ho-hum story, but the parkour action works. [Aug 2016]

    Despite its flaws, Catalyst is a worthy concept of the game, and the improvement from the last one to this shows that it can mature into a quality game franchise, beyond its concept. The sense of scale and the way the world has been designed for travel makes for a fantastic experience.

    Catalyst would be an easier recommend even with the clunky controls if it had been sold cheaper, perhaps as episodic content. As it stands, this is mostly for fans, and even then, I caution the inevitable frustration that will surely come from running through a city literally made of glass.

    With all the hype of last years news that this game was being made, I was sadly disappointed in how it turned out in the end.

    Mirror's Edge Catalyst fails in being the grand series return fans were hoping for, mainly due to a boring and frustrating combat system, a forgettable story and a lifeless city. What's left is a charismatic main character, great buildings architecture, a good traversal system and the hope for a more inspired and entertaining sequel.

    As a long-time fan of the original Mirror’s Edge, I was happy to hear about a new game in the series, but I should have been prepared for the worst. To be fair, I may be exaggerating. Catalyst may not be a terrible game to most people. In fact, it’s a totally playable, completely okay, thoroughly mediocre title.

    I think, it's exactly what the fans waited for in the last 8 years.

Who likes moving in an open world and can dispense with a long epic story and a huge amount of side quests will absorb this game in every way and will have lots of fun with it. Expand

Ela está muito mais humana e propensa à erros, ao contrário da personagem heróica e mais genérica do primeiro game.
    Os graficos estão bonitos e a taxa de frames é constante (sempre proximo dos 60fps). Mas eu não gostei que substituíram toda a alvenaria e concreto por vidro, vidro e mais vidro.

    O gameplay está tão bom quanto antes, mas só depois de você desbloqueiar algumas habilidades básicas. A habilidade de usar cordas é uma novidade aqui.

    Recomendo. Daria um 8 mas como este game foi bolinado pelos usuários por causa de um boato infundado durante a produção, arredondo para 10.

There is very little to do outside of run around and push buttons. Which is not to say that this is not the point of the game. But when quests have you travel halfway across the city to get to the next one, I had myself fast traveling a lot more towards the tail end of the game. Side mission runs are extremely hard because of time constraints and lack of upgrades. Combat is non existent. Here is the cheat code for the hardest enemy: Heavy attack, dodge backwards, wait for attack animation to complete, repeat. I also had frame rate issues on Xbox One during one of the first few cut-scenes. Story is meh. Overall. It met expectations gameplay wise, but not much else. Expand

    Pro:

    -Decent gameplay

    Cons:
    - Mundane story
    - Very ugly textures; Blurry visuals from what looks like FXAA, 720p, and a short draw distance
    - Simplistic combat with stupid AI
    - Loading times are too long for this type of game
    - Repetitive side missions

    Summary: Glad I am subscribed to EA access so I didn't waste my money on this. Wait until this is on sale if you're thinking about buying this. Fun gameplay, but there's so many issues that ruin the experience.

    Es un paquetes, horrorosamente mal presentado!.
    La sensación que me da es la de que han querido seguir exprimiendo el impacto y la sorpresa del primero juego.

    El control que se tiene sobre el personaje es confuso, y para nada fluido. Da la impresión de que se han querido poner mas movimientos en el mismo botón y el procesador no asimila a la velocidad que debe la información para que, en una situación concreta, el personaje actúe como queremos que lo haga.

    No ha perdido su identidad, todos los rasgos que le identifican como el juego que es siguen allí y, personalmente, me sigue enamorando lo siguiente:

    ES EL UNICO JUEGO EN PRIMERA PERSONA QUE CUANDO MIRAMOS HACIA ABAJO LE MIRAMOS LOS PIES AL PERSONAJE!!!.

    Resumiendo:

    Es otro juego que falla en su presentación como producto, personalmente le habría puesto otra nota mucho mejor, a pesar de los fallos que tiene. Pero si a todo esto sumamos el tremendo desastre que es que, NO ES LA MISMA ACTRIZ.QUE TRABAJO EN EL PRIMER JUEGO LA QUE DOBLA AL PERSONAJE EN ESPAÑOL EN EL SEGUNDO!!! (POR FAVOR SOLUCIONEN ESTO YA!!), el resultado es la nota que le he puesto... siendo generoso

    Terriblemente aburrido, gráficos ya ni de 360, pareciera de la primera XBox, inteligencia artificial nula y además una historia metida conTerriblemente aburrido, gráficos ya ni de 360, pareciera de la primera XBox, inteligencia artificial nula y además una historia metida con calzador.
    De ser posible eviten comprar el juego, hay mejores maneras de invertir el dinero y este juego no es una de ellas.
    Qué pena y qué decepción.
