That's why I fear Mirror's Edge: Catalyst will also fall into an "easy and more accessible" category. My other concern is it might try too much, both in terms of visuals and game mechanics. The original succeeds because it's pretty much bare-bones. It does what it does and does it well. It doesn't reach for the skies nor it needs to. We have already seen flashy cut scenes and dazzling visuals of the prequel, with glaring lens flares and whatnot, but very little of the actual gameplay. And DICE pretty much hates Xbox One. Or is completely incompetent with it. And I have absolutely no desire to get PS4, like, ever.
Of course I hope I'm wrong and Mirror's Edge: Catalyst turns out to be the best game since, well, Mirror's Edge. It's a long wait until May. In the meantime we can always go back to Faith's original shoes and have a blast!
