Catherine

Playstation Illustrated

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Catherine is a difficult game to classify by any standard. The trailers led me to believe that it would be an anime-style murder mystery with gameplay similar to Heavy Rain. It turns out that the core game mechanic is pretty far from detective work, although it does have dialogue options that change the outcome of the story. Get ready to dive into the deep inner thoughts and nightmares of Vincent Brooks.

  • 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.
