Despite the popular opinion - i will say one thing: if you liked the original, you should definitely play Catalyst. All the game mechanics we loved are here and almost untouched, with some of the new stuff added on top (like a grappling hook). People are usually frustrated with the empty open world, but if you treat it like a linear game - it works pretty well, and you can knock out all the main story in 6-7 hours straight (compared to 3.5-4hrs of the original) and still have extra things to do, if you'll want to get back to the City of Glass, which is a nice bonus in my opinion. Where the first game left you with a boring time trial on the same missions you already played - here you have a huge set of paths to run after you're done with the story.
