Info over het spel

Told as a “Wuxia” story, which literally means "martial hero", Mirage captures the essence of a broad genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists.

Shrouded in secrecy, an organization of assassins wreak havoc on the local populace. Two assassins Soul and Shang, find a window of opportunity to strike while all their enemies can be found in one place. Their mission is simple: take down all their enemies or die in the attempt. They will face many challenges and discover lost secrets as they embark on a perilous journey against terrible odds.

Take control of Soul and Shang and wield two separate martial arts styles to defeat their foes.

Soul is an orphan born with the temperament of a master. His skills are self-taught and so lack refinement, but his potential is undeniable. He favors Dark Wound, a short bladed weapon given to him by his adoptive father, rumored to be one of the Night Masters..

Shang Zuo is a calm, unflappable fighter of average skill, but who possesses a centered view of all things powerful enough to influence physical objects. This “Sword Temper” skill allows him to destroy objects without moving a muscle and to knock arrows out of the sky with but a single thought. Together they will face the unknown and harness new skills as they face down a terrible conspiracy.

Engrish translation? Check.
Pretty nice soundtrack? Check.
Fancy slashing combo system with diversity of two characters? Check.
If you want a game with fun combat and unnecessarily hard platforming, this might be a game for you.

My initial experience after spending first 30min into this game are the same as the review from [FR] CXZman. Here is the break down for those too lazy to look it up:

+ Gorgeous art, game style, great ideas
+ Game seems fluid in its own right, animations are well done
+ Swapping between 2 characters with different fighting styles is a cool idea and adds another aspect to the fighting strategy

- There is no learning curve you are thrown into the deep water immediately. The "tutorial" which serves also as a prologue is a joke. Little messages that pop up are shown for exactly 1s, by the time you noticed them they are gone, and you are left to dig through the menus and learn what keys apply to what, how and where.
- Controls are absolutely horrendous. This is by far my biggest gripe. There are 2 attack buttons, one special action, one super action, jump button and directional controls. Now to navigate 80% of the level you need to double jump. Depending on your character its either JUMP + Shadeshift + Direction (3 buttons to jump that must be comboed correctly every single damn time) or even worse Summon Sword (Special + 2nd Attack) THEN jump + jump. Heavy attack seems to follow no timing with light attacks and all you end up doing is mashing your keyboard or keypad trying to make your character do something.
- The story is so convoluted and opaque that it might as well have been left with chinese audio as is, with subtitles turned off.
- The platforms on which you walk/jump on blend in with the background making it stupidly easily to mistake are you going to fall off screen or land on a platform.


2/10

I wanted to get into this so much, but with every played minute I was more disgusted. Once I painfully reached the first boss all I got was my ♥♥♥ handed to me and I was done. I might revisit the game just to see if it helps any on the 2nd pass, but right now I am thoroughly dissapointed. Proper tutorial, much slower and gradual introduction. Giving the player a chance to learn the moves, combos and game mechanics would have made a huge difference. As it is now, its just a pretty piece of crap.

Edit: On second attempt, I made it to the 2nd big boss just barely, and my opinion is still the same. The game is unplayable to me and deeply frustrating, uninstall and going into the trash pile.

Basically it's a side-scrolling Devil May Cry. It features 2 characters with 2 distinct combat styles (think of Dante and Vergil; in fact, Shang could be Vergil’s distant cousin from China — his Kee swords bear great resemblance to Summoned Swords), style-based combat system, and great visuals. Sadly, translation is atrocious, there are many typos and in some instances English text doesn't even remotely correspond to Chinese audio. Also, story is somewhat basic and clichéd. But the gameplay is great, combat is satisfying, so if you're a fan of hack and slash games (like me), Mirage is a must have. If you're not, well, at least give it a try.
P.S. Oh, and don't be fooled by “Local co-op” label on Steam — Mirage has only “Duel” mode available from the start. In order to unlock “Boss Rush” and “Tower” (Bloody Palace) modes you have to finish the story first. There's no co-op for story mode…
