Description

Follow Faith, a daring free runner, as she fights for freedom in the city of Glass. What appears to be an elegant, high-tech city on the outside, has a terrible secret hidden within. Explore every corner from the highest beautifully lit rooftops to the dark and gritty tunnels below. The city is huge, free to roam and Faith in at the center of it all. Through the first-person perspective, combine her fluid movement and advanced combat with the city's surroundings to master the environment and uncover the conspiracy. This is Mirror's Edge for this generation, raising the bar for immersion in action-adventure games.

More of the same, but that's not necessarily bad.

This game is very much like the first game, yet improved. Also keep in mind that this is a reboot for the series. No use of guns at all (this is for the better honestly), more emphasis on momentum and focus, better visuals and open world this time around. The main story for the game is rather short and the twists are very predictable, but still semi-enjoyable. If you don't like doing trials over and over again, or get motion sickness easily, then this game probably isn't for you. That being said, it's a decent game for those that enjoy these types of repetitive and rather short games. Is it worth $60? Probably not. I enjoyed it for the most part, but definitely wish I hadn't bought it full price.

So Fresh & So Clean

While Catalyst didn't recieve especially good reviews from the professional cynics, we amateur grumpyfaces appear to be heaping solid gold olympic hollas on it. And one thing is undeniable, and universally agreed upon by cool kids and hikkikomori alike. It plays frkn GREAT. The controls were always clever and tight, but with the advent of ME:2, they're finally smooth and utterly, utterly playable. It's the sort of gameplay that just feels good in your hands. No cheap deaths. Running feels clean, easy and all around battlestar FANTASTICA. It's a shame that it's EA money, or we would probably be looking forward to some shiny DLC. As it stands, the best thing we can do support this franchise is to show it to people. For while the story is (comparably) smart and compelling, it's really quite difficult to dislike simply running around in Faith's skin. Oh, my Mirror's Edge would make for an amazing foundation for an MMORPG. (A fellow can dream. It's not as though DICE doesn't know how.. ;)

It's great, but...

I've enjoyed playing this game. It serves as a fresh update to it's somewhat dated predecessor, improving on every aspect of itself (in some way). Unfortunately, it seems that DICE has abandoned the game in the wake of the upcoming (and overhyped) Battlefield 1, due to the mixed reviews MEC has gotten since launch. I think that a major overhaul update and a few map expansion DLCs could save the game, for DICE and for Catalyst fans alike. EA needs to return to the city of Glass soon if they want their game to be truly what it deserves to be.

I love this game!

If you loved the first game you are absolutely going to love this game, it improves just about everything from the first game. If you are one these people who picked up the 1st game on a $5 sale & think it's ok, you are probably going to want to wait & do the same. Again, if you loved the 1st game & love open world games, I would definitley recommend picking this up now. This game definitely demands good coordination, if you not good at pulling off fast moves & sticking landings, you are going to have a bad time with this game. You can tell this is dice's first attempt at an open world game, lots of repetitive side missions, but you are constantly opening new parts of the map up, & when all is said & done the map is pretty large. If you just want to play the story it'll probably take you around 8 hours but if you like collectibles (there's a ton) & side missions, you can easily sink 20+ hours into this game. It's a niche game but if it's for you, you're really going to love it.

Take a leap of "Faith"

This game is downright astonishing. The graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay is more fluid than the previous installment. The beautiful color palettes are a welcome addition too. Ignore the naysayers who think this game is broken. There's a lot of variety and it's just really fun to play. If you're a fan of the first game, you'll love Catalyst. So take a leap of faith and enjoy 🎮

Over The Top Amazing👍👏

This game is over the top AMAZING! It is so popular yet in a nobody-knows-about-it way! Definitely recommend it! I consider it as one of EA's most fluid and immersive games ever. Maybe EA will make a sequel to it? Maybe including a certain Faith x Icarus rumor. I can't say how many times I've replayed this game, because I lost track! I don't regret buying it. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is so worth it! I just would like the '"Connecting Your EA Account" process to easier. Despite that, it's an amazing game! We need a sequel for this EA! Just have a little Faith! 👍❤🙂🎮 -intunepaddy17

Don't expect a lot from this game

If you fell in love with the first game like myself, don't think this game is better cause it isn't. After 7 years of making this game EA was only able to produce a SEVEN HOUR campaign with flat characters and a confusing story. Any twists in the game aren't suprising by any means with how much the game milks it before the twist. The ending left me with a bad taste in my mouth and made me wonder if I should buy the 3rd game when it comes out (the ending made it obvious). I expected so much out of this game when it was announced. The trailers make it seem so amazing and cool but when playing and beating it you get bored very fast. If you're brand new to the series go ahead and buy it because it's a new expirience that I reccomend but if you're expecting an amazing new Mirrors Edge don't waste your money. I was very dissappointed in this game and hope EA learns from their mistakes in the 3rd installment.

Great Pre-Sequel

I started playing this game and from start to finish and was highly impressed. After waiting for 7 years this was well worth the wait. I loved the challenges as well as the optional quests, which truly made the game feel more like an open world platform compared to it's linear predecessor. I only wish there were more dlc expansions.
