Eight years after, unlike the always on-the-run Faith Connors, Mirror's Edge finds itself in the same, exact place we left it. Unfortunately, DICE promised something more. Like the original, Catalyst is the ultimate expression of virtual parkour, but it never manages to create a real connection with the player.
If thinking about freerunning puts a smile on your face, this is the game for you. If you are looking for a good story or a diverse world however, Catalyst is not for you. Mirror's Edge deserves more love than this.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was an answer to intense fan demand for a new game, and that seems to be all it is. Catalyst has nothing to say and less than nothing to add to its genre. Unimaginative and repetitive, with a story that goes absolutely nowhere, Catalyst serves only as a way to waste some time if there’s nothing better to play...It’s not offensive, and it’s not an actively bad time, but it’s so very bland and uneventful. I can’t really speak for the developers, but Catalyst certainly gives the impression that they’d rather be working on literally anything else.
I've played many games, and this is one of the best game I ever played. Unlike any other combat games, this is just a relaxing and thrilling parkour game.
Even you are looking for more battle, try dying light or something. This game is just to underrated
Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a highly enjoyable action-adventure game featuring fluid parkour mechanics, an engaging story, and stunning visuals. It is a must-play for fans of the genre. But the story in this game is not as strong as the original Mirror's Edge. Despite this, the game is still a thrilling and well-crafted experience that is worth playing for fans of the genre.
Great **** I give it a 4 out of respect.
Nothing to do with 1, in which the missions were linear and fun, to survive you had to flee from the police doing parkour but not in this one, since many times (many) you will have to fight against them, see if they have given you importance that there are even upgrades and combat skills. Also, for some stupid reason they have decided to completely change the look of the game and make it futuristic with absurd technology.
The story seems to me at least regrettable and extremely forgettable, the characters have given me a **** **** at no time have I had even a minimum of empathy with any of them.
The only good thing about the game that improves on the previous one in addition to the graphics and movements is the free world, which was lacking in the first one.
In summary, if you have played the first one, I do not recommend it at all, but if you are new to the series, you might like it (although it is difficult).
