Catherine

Playstation Illustrated
29 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For a game I spent a lot of time avoiding before E3, post-E3 I've written and talked a lot about Catherine . Like the game's blonde love interest, once you've had a taste of what the game offers, it is really hard to stay away. For all the frustrations it introduces, it finds a way to reel you back in every time. When I decide to rock a videogame soundtrack during my morning commute, you know the game has an exceptional soundtrack.

PlayStation Universe

  • 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

Catherine Review

GameZone
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I rarely come across a game that doesn't tote a muscle-toned guy going against an alien race, an elf in need of assistance in an enchanted forest, or a soldier and his team of highly-trained soldiers taking on terrorism all over the world. In comes Catherine, one of the most unique experiences I have ever got my hands on.

Catherine (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
29 July 2011
  • Excerpt: As a JRPG fan, it was hard for me to be excited for Catherine at first. Here was one of my favorite JRPG teams taking a slight hiatus from the genre and making what turned out to be a puzzle game with a sexually charged story. While this might seem like quite a departure from the Persona series at first, there is definitely still a distinct feel about the game that makes it clear who the developers are: from the crazy soundtrack to the dark supernatural story.

  • Conclusion: You wouldn’t expect beers with friends and the moral complexity of infidelity to be suitable for an interactive medium, and you certainly wouldn’t anticipate marrying those concepts to a box pushing puzzle game to materialize into anything remotely interesting. And you would have been wrong. The elevator pitch for Catherine sounds like a joke, but it’s actually one of the most thought provoking, challenging, and legitimately interesting experiences out there.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
28 July 2011
  • Excerpt: ; despite the developer’s great reputation and the potential for their recent puzzle thriller, I foresaw too many stumbling blocks. How can you build an entire game around the same sort of puzzle? What if someone really isn’t a fan of anime? Is the gameplay too frustrating? What if the characters fail to be interesting? However, after playing for quite some time, I realize I should’ve had more faith.
