Catalyst is as close to a definitive version of a Mirror's Edge game as we're likely to get, despite retaining some of the first game's issues.

No Recommendation / Blank

DICE's reboot of a flawed modern classic fixes old problems while introducing new ones all of its own.

The staples of Mirror's Edge remain refreshing and unique in the first-person genre in 2016, but Catalyst's attempts to keep up with the open-world Joneses don't always jive with its design strengths of movement and momentum. On top of that, muddy-looking console versions and a lame story filled with unlikable characters doom Mirror's Edge's return to fall short. I was so happy this game was being made, but in the end I'm just as disappointed in how it turned out.

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is an interesting game with some strong ideas but not enough variety.

7 / 10.0
Mirror's Edge is actually one of my favorite games of all time. It didn't sell well, hence the near-decade hiatus, and a lot of gamers just didn't get the game. It also had a lot of flaws such as linear level design, a paper-thin story, and awful combat. While Catalyst improves upon a lot of weaknesses from the first game it also never addresses some as well. EA DICE really
