The original Mirror’s Edge was something of a cult classic so the fact that the long awaited sequel actually came out is something of an accomplishment already. The way it uses next gen technology to improve on the mechanics that made the first game unique should net developer DICE considerable props.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst isn’t just a re-tread of old ideas but, while trying to expand on its formula, the game unfortunately experiences a few stumbles. The addition of an open world to explore seems like it fits right in with modern gaming trends, but over-reliance on timed side missions take away from what could have been a well paced story.
First day out the feds.
The game world looks beautiful and very interesting. However, and i’m not sure if i’m in the minority here, the amount of bright white surfaces found all over the city of glass gave me a bit of a headache and made me wish I had sunglasses. Combat was a nice surprise in this game and is much improved from the first game. If you want to see it in motion, definitely make sure to check out the full video review embedded above.
How you gonna call for backup when I just turned your larynx to spaghetti?
Overall, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is pretty good but certain design choices hold it back. If you want to check out the song I mentioned at the beginning of the video, here’s a link.

You pick a trainer, you pick a partner Pokemon and you go on a journey to conquer the Ferrum league. The story isn’t nything outside of the typical Pokemon fare, but the story is not why we’re here. You make your trainer and there are a lot of customization options available for them through the use of in game money or by tapping any Amiibo figurines you might own.
Got my trainer swaggin’ hard
The fighting is fluid and does things differently from your typical fighting game. If you come into this playing like its Smash Bros. or Street Fighter then you’re in for a rude awakening. The moves have a feeling of weight and connection behind them which is very important to the genre. It feels very responsive when you’re handing out whoopins.k
