Mirror’s Edge Catalyst schafft es weiterhin einer der besten Parkour-Titel zu sein, verschlechtert sich aber in vielen Bereichen zu sehr zum Vorgänger. Weder die Story noch die Gegner KI können irgendwie Spannung erzeugen und auch die angepriesene Open World, entpuppt sich als ein generischer Parkour-Spielplatz. Fans vom free-running Gameplay werden mit dem neuesten Mirror’s Edge aber dann am Ende des Tages doch ihren Spaß haben.

A huge improvement over the first release in the franchise.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst still feels like a lot of fun to play through, as the parkour system remains a really successful mechanic for navigating the game world. Dice have made a lot of changes that both hurt and harm the series, but at least you couldn't say that this is a lazy re-working of an eight-year old game.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst has some great concepts going for it that are ultimately being held back by technical issues. I can't help but feel these could have been worked out. With no real multiplayer component, the single player experience needs to be wholly satisfying. Unfortunately, this game is way more frustrating than fun.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst tries to improve on the good parts of its predecessor. Most of the time it fails to do so. The open world city is way to repetitive in many areas and fighting enemies just doesn't feel right.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is an exhilarating experience when you find yourself running in perfect harmony through the cityscape while knocking K-Sec around. Unfortunately all of that comes with a slightly confusing narrative.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst had potential. The story was a big disappointment. Not recommended.

Ultimately, Mirror's Edge Catalyst falls short of all our hopes and dashes what little faith I had in the series, pun intended. There are some truly brilliant moments and Mirror's Edge Catalyst looks gorgeous and feels brilliant to navigate once you finally get all the gadgets and extended slides etc. but forcing you through the campaign to get any real modicum of enjoyment hurts the experience drastically.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst tries hard to engage players and develop the concept outlined in the original game further, but it doesn't completely succeed. It's a pity that the developers haven't put a a little more effort into it and it's kind of a missed opportunity. If you're a fan of the first game, Catalyst will surely delight you, but the rest of the players may not be interested.
