Original Thread: What if corporations ran the country? - Let's Play Mirror's Edge Catalyst



Mirror's Edge Catalyst is an action-adventure platformer developed by EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts. It was released in June 2016 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This game is a little bit of an oddity as it is neither prequel, sequel, or remake. If anything, it's a reboot of a franchise that only had one game. No matter how you label it, Catalyst is a fitting successor to the original Mirror's Edge. The game focuses on first person freerunning (or parkour) to get from point A to B, with some climbing, platforming, and combat sequences thrown in.

The game got mixed reviews with many people commenting that the basic freerunning mechanics are quite good, but the combat, story, characters, and pretty much everything else about the game are solidly mediocre. For the most part if you liked the first Mirror's Edge, you'll probably like this one. If you didn't like the first Mirror's Edge, it's extremely unlikely that this one does anything that would bring you around.

Speaking of the original Mirror's Edge, there will probably be many comments referencing or comparing the two games so if you've never seen or played it, check out the LP I did.
