Summary: This is a fairly good game. Time spent outside of the Dream World is the character development part and time in the dream world is the action/puzzle part. The climbing of the towers can be frustrating at times and very difficult. Would be interesting to replay game making the opposite choices than was made first time trough the game just see what the different outcome would be. However, don't think I want to go through the climbing of the towers again.
Infidelity finds a new outlet for its guilty conscience

Summary: This has got to be the strangest game ever.Someone had some serious guilt issues when they came up with this one.It's not easy,and the block puzzles are very challenging.Some of the other aspects are a little mundane,the whole cell phone bit is kinda lame.Overall,though,very original and definitely worth a play.
Summary: This is a fun game to kick back and get lightly emotionally involved in. Very cool, simple yet challenging, and rather sexy. If you are an adult male, only play this if you are secure in your feelings about romance and life. It was put together with the intention of trying to get you to question those feelings, even if it does so in a somewhat funny and lighthearted way.
Summary: Usually, the best games are those that meld gameplay and plot together. Catherine does not do that at all, yet strangely it's still a high-quality experience. The story segments tackle relationships and temptation in a way that no game I've ever played has. It's mature in that these are adult themes - and I'm not talking just nudity or swearing. The characters are really fleshed out, and the dialog is natural - especially if you're familiar with Japanese culture.
Summary: The game in before it was scheduled to which made very happy. At a first glance the product looks just like new, as the product description said. The disc was spotless, no smears or stains on the case, full manual, and box art. However after I opened the case and tried to shut it I noticed only half of the case shuts. The top clamp is fine but the bottom has broken off.
Summary: I love Atlus games and their special editions. The game wasn't as good as my expectations but all the extra stuff that came with this edition was worth it. I wear the shirt all the time, use the pillow case for my pillow, and love having the other stuff around.
Not quite what I expected, but challenging fun nonetheless

Summary: I bought this game based on skimming the overall positive reviews, though I hadn't actually read the gameplay descriptions or viewed any video clips. Since I played a few of the Persona series games from ATLUS, I figured this game would have some RPG-style elements mixed with an engaging story. Totally not what I was expecting. The game can feel repetitive, since the goal on each stage is just to climb to the top.
Summary: This was the surprise game of the year for me for PS3! What a great game!!! The puzzles are awesome, the story was cool, the characters were fun. I'm still trying to beat the game on the hardest level and struggling. I got the deluxe set 100% for the pillow case. I'm a nerd, and I knew I HAD to have the Catherine pillow case! The boxers were disappointing, thus the 4 stars. They are too small and seem like they're sized incorrectly.
Summary: My wife is not an avid gamer, but she does like puzzle, drama, and decision based games. She was big fan of Heavy Rain and is waiting for "Beyond: Two Souls". I bought this to tide her over as it had good reviews and has all the game components she enjoys. She really likes the game so far, but I think the games has to be of your liking or you will not enjoy it.
