Game Spot - (7 / 10)

Yes, certain portions of the game are deeply unimpressive, but I rarely (if ever) found them frustrating, painful, or unavoidable, which allowed me to overlook those elements and enjoy the unique pleasures Catalyst provides. I was consistently wowed by the movement and everything that comes with it, so while it's a disappointing action game, it works wonderfully as a platformer, puzzler, and racing game. And for that reason, I can't wait to keep playing.

Kotaku - No Review Score

Good: Exciting sense of speed, climbing is dizzying and exhilarating, combat is fun in small doses.
Bad: Trite story, dull characters, several frustrating combat encounters, some annoying bugs.

Kirk Hamilton, Kotaku

 

IGN (6.8/10)

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.

Ryan McCaffery, IGN

 

PC Gamer - (78 / 100)

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.

Conclusion 

So it seems from these reviews that Mirrors Edge Catalyst is a fairly decent title with better than average scores. On metacritic the user score is actually fairly low at around 3.8 currently, while the meta score is still sitting around 75. 

Does this mean that people are finding the game more dull than they expected, or its just not living up to its predecessor.
