Game Review: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst – Square peg in a round hole
Mirror's Edge Catalyst offers solid fundamentals, but they're undermined by a mountain of collectibles, side missions, and marketing bullet points. The game feels like an exercise in design by committee, where the goal is to add in every possible feature, rather than asking if they make sense or contribute to the game in a meaningful way. Catalyst is nonetheless a unique gaming experience that offers up a niche contrast to your typical mainstream triple A shtick, it just doesn't quite know what it wants to be. There's some fun to be had, but I'd wait for this one to go on sale.
