About the Game

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.

The game, while it may lack some polish, is fluid and the combat is fun.

The translation is not very good, but I can look over it because the setting is different from what you normally see.

If you are interested in hack and slash games, this does a superb job in scratching that itch. I would not reccomend playing the game without a controller, however.

For $10 i'm so glad I picked this game up. This game is an awesome hack and slash especially if you're into chineese fiction.
Story is actually somewhat interesting. You play 2 different characters, both have pretty distinct movesets as well as unlockable skills.
The combat itself most people will probably think it's just "okay". But after learning the characters you can do some neat combos and tricks.

The enemies aren't too difficult really, (at least on normal difficulty) but they do throw quite a bit of mini bosses into the levels that keep it interesting.
The boss fights are definetly where most of the game shines, they all are pretty unique and have different layouts from what I can tell.

One thing that is unfortunate is the amount of typos in the dialogue, but it's easy to figure out what the characters are saying. The voices are actually in chineese which is very cool in my opinion.

Also the achievments seemed to be bugged :(

Need to play it for yourself! Check it out!

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…
