Mirror's Edge Catalyst


Platform: PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One
Genre: Action Adventure Game, Platform Game
Release Date: 7 June 2016
Developer: EA DICE
Publisher: Electronic Arts




Synopsis

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a first-person action-adventure game in which the player takes control of Faith Connors as she progresses through a futuristic city named Glass. ... These act as guides to lead players towards their objective.




Gameplay

MOMENTUM
Build momentum to do daring jumps between rooftops or stylish slides through tight spaces. Use the new Shift move to get a short burst of acceleration in any direction. For a quick change of plan, tweak any move with Quickturn, a rapid 180 or 90 degree turn.
TRAVERSAL
Hit top speed quickly zipping down wire lines. Balance on pipes before smoothly dropping to a hang before climbing, hand over hand, under an obstacle. Run vertically and horizontally on any wall and use your environment to swing around corners or over gaps.




Graphics

The graphics was awesome! Compared to the previous version of Mirror's Edge, the graphics has improved enormously, which makes game play easier because things are clearer and easy to see. There are also issues with the graphics, with Catalyst being easily the worst looking Frostbite game of recent years. The art design is fantastic but theres a serious problem with textures not loading in properly (and the sound dropping out), and the faces for secondary characters are awful. Not that there are many other people, since the games city feels more like a ghost town. You do occasionally pass ordinary citizens but they never express outrage that youre running through their house or have just ruined their construction yard.

Controls

Controls are incredibly easy and can become extremely fun. Can be a bit of a handful when your're in an intense fight or game. The origin of Shift is that we wanted to find something that lets you gain speed faster. Shift lets you move sideways in any direction, and also backwards. Say you get too close to a threat or just want to back up and get a clearer view of your surroundings, Shift will take care of that.Shift can also be used to drift when taking corners. Though running and driving are very different activities, this is not entirely dissimilar from techniques in racing games. If youre running and are approaching a 90-degree turn, you can turn slightly towards the turn and activate a Side shift to make a sharper turn.One extra perk of using Shift like this is that you cant fall off of ledges while doing it. This means you can use this technique on dodgy terrain and on small catwalks without railings.




Rating

Gameplay: 6/10
Graphics: 9/10
Controls: 6.5/10
Overall: 8/10

The best thing about this game is the engine it uses. It runs very smooth.

As for the game, it's very meh, i did prefer the 1st one as it just made more sense.

Your gameplay is raw without any detail and nothing expressing the actual gameplay besides the MAIN key features of the game. Read some of the reviews on this site or other websites to see what gameplay should actually be about. Usually playing the game will make this category a breeze.

Plot? the game has an official plot / story but I don't see a category in your review for it. I look at the plot first for a game so I know the basics of the story so I won't be confused within the dialog or if I missed something in the game.

A short summary from a site in-case you didn't think there was a plot:
(Not my summary)


The game starts with Faith Connors leaving Juevenile Detention after being in there for 2 years. Returning, she soon finds out that a corporation, KrugerSec, has basically taken over the freedom of the "City of Glass". So, Faith goes on an adventure to free the city from its imprisonment by defeating its leader (Gabriel Kruger), and extinguishing his militia by any means necessary.
