The PS4 version of this game is bug ridden from the moment you start. Within the first 5 minutes I was knocked through a wall and unable to continue, watched an invisible battle occur between NPC's and watched two NPC's run , jump off invisible boxes and land to occupy the same space, in two different locations. All before I met Noah. The scene with Noah was flat, the acting was bad and I know this isn't a bug but the same effort seems to have been put in across the board. The city looks boring and grey. The first Mirrors edge city of glass was brightly lit, more colourful and looked bigger.
I just don't understand why these games are not being tested on standard consoles/computers with real gamers giving REAL feedback to these companies. Why not send x amount of people on PC PS4 and XBOXONE copies, pay them and add contracts not to leak info or make videos. Simple. Instead WE, the paying customers have become the game testers but with a big bonus. WE pay them upfront. So they have our money already. Now we have to wait for trickle patches to come out over time with no guarantee that all the issues will ever be fixed.
I bought the Collectors Edition at the highest price I've ever paid for one (£150), the game wasn't included and this is what we get. These Coleectors Editions are now a major problem and maybe the reason why we get this kind of rubbish sent out for release. These companies now get three times the money for a game that quite frankly is far worse than the original on last gen platforms. This isn't EA's first balls up either, remember PGA tour golf? Did you ever read the review or play Rory mcilroy pga tour golf? Best not to if you have fond memories of PGA TOUR from last gen consoles/PC.
I've shelved the game until I know at least some of the bugs have been addressed and will NEVER buy into that day one release nonsense again. It's cheaper and less stressful to read the forums and web for the first couple of months about ANY game to see what is on offer before I commit to any cash being handed over.
