The first game could be traversed in a variety of ways, but the second moved this into a fully open world. Along with the climbing, running, grabbing and swinging you can zip-line down from heights, tiptoe along ledges and find equipment to extend your reach.
Combat is more advanced in the second game, which makes it more engaging and removes the use of guns by the player altogether, focusing instead on Faith's running and parkour movements and quick melee-style attacks to take down or evade her enemies.

Rated for younger players in the US. Mirror's Edge Catalyst is Rated ESRB TEEN for Mild Language, Violence. Players use punches, kicks, and takedowns to combat armed guards. Impact sounds, realistic gunfire, and cries of pain occur during battles. A handful of sequences depict additional acts of violence: a woman held at gunpoint; a man electrocuted to death on a table. The words “*!@?*” and “b*tch” are heard in the dialogue.
