Catherine

  • Excerpt: Catherine is probably one of the most unique games to be released on the PlayStation 3 in quite some time as it definitely strays from the traditional gaming norm. In essence, the game is a devious puzzle thriller on the PS3 that contains a colourful yet interesting romantic horror theme with a truly emotional protagonist. It's definitely not your average PS3 game and because of this, the end result is relatively impressive.

  • Conclusion: If you’re not, or never have been, at a crossroads in your life that represents choosing between freedom or security, then you’ll be left with a lovely little puzzle game with a load of unnecessarily slow talking sequences that might be a bit boring. If you’re on the flipside of that coin - and particularly if you’re in your late twenties or early thirties - then it’ll likely represent a lot more.

Game Observer
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Despite the over-corporatization of the video game industry, not every game is going to be a consumer mega-hit like whatever Call of Duty game that happens to be coming out any given November. Sometimes, these little-known, niche titles can be real gems in the rough (Demon’s Souls, Trine). Other times, they just barely get by. But more often than not, they are utter garbage.Catherine is not a game for everybody.

  • Excerpt: At first glance, Catherine seemed like an innovative game that would lend itself well to the video game industry by showing other developers a new way to deliver puzzle games; I am sad to report that, although very interesting, Catherine was not as entertaining as I had hoped it would be. Although it takes a while to notice (four or five hours in), the setting of the game is extremely repetitive.

  • Conclusion: Catherine's disparate elements aren't unlike a marriage in and of themselves. Alone they can be frustrating or even a little boring, but when paired up, they become a whole experience that shouldn't be missed. Definitely check this game out.

  • Excerpt: Catherine is more of an experience than a game, and the random player won’t know what the heck is going on. This game is beautiful, challenging and deep on a level no other game attempts to go for, but ultimately may alienate more people than it wins over.
  • Pros: Original story and gameplay, challenging puzzles
  • Cons: Ridiculous difficulty, may not appeal to everyone

Catherine Review

2 August 2011
  • Summary: Catherine is a mind trip, blending the impact of real life decisions, the nightmares of finally growing up, and the fear of dying young. While the core puzzle-platforming offers nerve-wracking excitement, players are likewise gifted with an engaging, authentic story.
  • Pros: The clever plot and narrative style, The intensely challenging puzzles, The solid replay value
  • Cons: The repetition that kicks in during the game's latter stages, The occasional camera angle hiccup, Some of the story elements are confusing
