Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Review

One of the things people liked with the first Mirror’s Edge is the fact that they could explore levels in any way they could and just enjoy their time. Faith is now back and she is ready to pack up a heavy punch as she does more climbing and lots of intense stunts.

Yes, at its core nothing is changed here because even if there are more places where you can shoot, the bulk of the content in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is pretty much the same. You use all the power at your disposal in order to eliminate enemies and just have fun which is quite neat to be honest. The entire experience in this game is very refined and you will like the fact that they have a great attention to detail integrated here which is amazing in its own right.

The quests are not the best however as most of them tend to repeat one another. But they do provide a very good value and in the end that’s exactly what you want to have for sure. You would like the attention to detail they offer to the levels and the unique appeal that each one of them provides. Sure, there are situations where levels could be made better but even it’s quite impressive with what you wilI get from a visual standpoint.

The game might have an open world but Mirror’s Edge Catalyst doesn’t really team with life. Instead, the open world will feel like a barren wasteland. That is understandable to be honest, but it does pose the question where you need to go and how can you address everything the right way? It’s certainly something that will take a lot of time but the combat is nice and exciting here, and you will feel that the game does a very good job at delivering an enjoyable experience.

Graphically, the world is huge but the fact that it’s barren does pose a variety of challenges here and that is truly unfortunate. Dying Light and Assassin’s Creed have managed to further improve parkour but Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a little behind them to be honest. The animations are good but they could be better and there are some regions where parkour wouldn’t really be the best option, yet it is there.

It seems Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was created as a fast sequel and maybe a cash grab for the fans. It’s not bad at all for sure, but it does lack some of the stuff that would make it great to begin with. They just simplified it way too much and some of the veterans certainly do not like to see such a thing.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is not a bad game, but it could have been better. It’s a nice title with plenty of cool ideas and it does integrate cool mechanics. It’s not long unfortunately and you can do just about everything here in 10 hours or so. But it’s an intense game and a fun one that you should play, even if you won’t get it immediately after release.
