    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]

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

    May not be as linear as the first mirror's edge but is still quite the masterpiece!
    Great story and visuals.

    Very dissapointing game. Graphics and world looks great but gameplay which should be strongest is quite weak. Not so free runing. There are aVery dissapointing game. Graphics and world looks great but gameplay which should be strongest is quite weak. Not so free runing. There are a lot of areas you should be able to climb or jump but you cant. game is very incosistent. There are walls you can run and you cant, jumps you survive and sometimes you dont. Missions are very repetitive. I found myself often sleepy playing this game. Enemy AI as well as combat is terrible, very badly scripted. Charaters and story are uninteresting and forgetable. Get it on 50% discount if you are still interested. Expand

    Decepcionante este secuela de Mirro's Edge. El mundo abierto es una mala idea para este tipo de juego, se nota repetitivo, la ciudad no tieneDecepcionante este secuela de Mirro's Edge. El mundo abierto es una mala idea para este tipo de juego, se nota repetitivo, la ciudad no tiene detalles y se ve como un juego viejo. Poco trabajo en cuanto a la dirección artistica. En el primer Mirro's edge de 2009 se cuidaba los detalles hasta la distancia de dibujado era muy buena a pesar de ser juego de anterior generación. Encerio los edificios se ven borrosos y malas texturas en Catalyst y las misiones secundarias hacen perder el hilo a la historia y no se sabe de que va realmente. Este juego lo jugé con el Game pass y luego de 2 horas me aburrí. Expand

    If I was looking for a game that has little or no story and just run run run,I could just play Mario.
