a stylish and thought provoking puzzle game

9.0Fantastic

A game that wasn't afraid to be different, centering on the emotional trauma of a man that cheated on his fiancee. Fun, but extremely difficult, puzzles added a lot to the game as well. Proves that you don't need tons of violence or guns to make a dramatic, interesting plot.

8.0Great

This game is a surprise gem, but please make sure you are playing the right game! You see, this game actually comprises four games. That is, it has four difficulty levels: Very Easy (secret mode - look up how to unlock it), Easy, Normal, and Hard. For your first playthrough, I strongly encourage you to select Easy and stick with it until you finish the game. This game on Easy is in the high-Normal range for most other games with multiple difficulty levels. On Easy, the game unfolds brilliantly with a good learning curve and is a challenging, fun, rewarding, and even quite interesting experience. If you start out in Normal mode and want to quit, try again on Easy to see what the complete game has to offer.

8.0Great

I remember journalists who previewed this game made it sound like it was going to reinvent video-game story telling. Spoilers, it didn't. That being said, the game still had a solid story with a lot going for it. Numerous plot twists, memorable characters and numerous side-stories made this a pretty engaging tale. The graphics were pretty solid, I really love the art-style since it's really versatile. Some characters can look beautiful while others can look super disturbing. The soundtrack is also awesome and way different from what I expected. I loved it. The actual gameplay was something really different and I totally enjoyed it. It had the perfect amount of tension and it was just super cool all around. Also, PS3 art >360 art.

7.0Good

Gotta give this game points for originality. Not many companies are going to green light an HD puzzle game, especially not one as fleshed-out and story driven as Catherine. Add Atlus' signature mix of truly mature story-telling, good dialogue with drops of humor, and weird designs and you have a nice game experience. The story isn't that special all in all but it has its moments. And while it's no tetris there is enough content here to warrant multiple playthroughs. It's not a classic but it's a refreshing game in an industry so obsessive with genre definitions at times.

10Classic!

This is one of a handful of games to be rated M because it is *truly mature*. A beautiful, beautiful game. Resonated with me very personally. It's sexy too! Gameplay is addictive and fast-paced; imagine reverse Q*bert that you can manipulate. My sole complaint is the camera - it moves too slowly in some situations - but that doesn't hamper the gameplay for me; it just takes some getting used to. This is my all-time favorite game; not necessarily gameplay-wise but in terms of sheer emotional connection. Definitely a game to play before you die!

10Classic!

A masterpiece by Atlus games that is the most innovative game of the past um while, at least. The player takes the role of Vincent, a guy who is stuck in-between two, totally opposite women. Moral quandaries and nightmares ensue. The plot of the game is really down to Earth (insofar as relationship stuff goes), and consists of talking to your girls and your friends in late night bar-meetings. The weird part of the game happens at night, when the main chr. goes to sleep, and is forced into solving strange block-building puzzles as a sheep in order to outrun the demons of his mind o.0 it's just as cool as it sounds; the only problem with this game is that it's way too short!! argh

As a big fan of Atlus, I had to play this one just for the story. I'm not usually one for block puzzle games, so I thought I'd just trudge through to get to the story. Ironically, my enjoyment turned out to be exactly the opposite of what I was expecting. The puzzles are actually really fun and challenging. Not a ton of games this gen have required actually thinking and planning strategies to move forward, so it's good to see at least someone doing it. Voice acting and music are fantastic, as expected from the Atlus sound team at this point. Wasn't really impressed with the story actually, so I guess it's good that the game itself turned out to be as much fun as it did!

8.0Great

I'm really torn on reviewing this game and have avoided doing so for a while. On one hand, it is incredibly unique, quite challenging, and has an entertaining story. On the other hand, there's just something about it that I don't like and I can't put my finger on it. I don't typically get headaches when I play video games, but I got one almost every single time I played this game, which I found very odd, and certainly messed with my enjoyment of the game. My only complaint about the story is that I found it difficult to sympathize with the main character and the situations he kept putting himself into. I recommend everyone at least try it out, but at the end of the day it's definitely not one of my favorite puzzle games.

7.0Good

Catherine is not your typical puzzle game. It's the one that grabs your attention straight from the start, not because of its gameplay, but because of its story and presentation. It's a really original game that, unfortunately, overstays its welcome in the end. Pros: Great first impression, superb characters, clever writing, really funny, different and yet fitting music, great puzzle gameplay, fresh ideas, cool online feature, story that you'll want to see through to the end, great art style and voice acting Cons: There's little variation in both the scenery and gameplay, story stumbles at one point, the choices you make have little impact until the very end of the game, quite a few filler endings, drags a bit towards the end
