  • Conclusion: Even if the game can get frustrating at times, there is nothing here you cant over come. Everything here is so rare, between the vibrant colorful art design, and adult themes, any one who claims to be a gamer should play this game.

Catherine (Xbox 360) Review

29 August 2011
  • Summary: If you’re tired of playing the same old game day in and day out, Catherine is right for you. There is nothing else out there quite like it, and we probably won’t see anything similar for years to come. If you’re up for a challenge and love storytelling in your games, there’s really no reason not to pick up Catherine.

  • Excerpt: Survival horror games wish they could be as scary as the puzzle game Catherine . Its power is disturbing, but it comes from its focus on real-life anxieties rather than the supernatural. Players control Vincent, a 32-year-old man whose long-term girlfriend, Katherine, is starting to talk about marriage while encouraging him to give up his vices and work harder.

Yeah me neither, but after playing Catherine , I can imagine about what it would be like.

Burnout 3: Takedown

  • Conclusion: Tijd voor een conclusie waarin ik alles nog eens kort overloop: prachtige graphics, verslavende gameplay en het gevaar dat dreigt. Wat? Gevaar, welk gevaar? Je sociaal leven kan serieus in het gedrang komen door dit spel. Is dit een slechte zaak? Ach wel nee, het cliché van gamers is toch al dat ze geen sociaal leven hebben dus waar vrees je nog voor? Neem je vierwieler, scheur naar de dichtstbijzijnde gamesboer en schaf Burnout 3: Takedown aan!

  • Excerpt: Сделать пазл о кризисе среднего возраста и заставить говорить о нем всю индустрию – плевое дело для геймдизайнеров и художников культового JRPG-цикла Persona . Куда труднее было собрать игру из простых, дешевых, кое-где даже бракованных кубиков, и заставить все это безобразие действительно работать – чтобы Catherine прогоняла перед геймером калейдоскоп кошмаров, проклятых вопросов, неудобных ассоциаций, и так пока что-то не попадет в цель.

  • Summary: Games zijn, net als boeken of films, een gewaardeerde vorm van entertainment. Toch zijn er niet veel games die meer doen dan vermaken. Zo af en toe is er een tranentrekker of een game waar de humor vanaf spat. Maar zelden is er een game die de speler laat nadenken. Nadenken over het leven, keuzes en normen en waarden. Maar zelden is niet nooit, want Catherine is wel zo’n game.
  • Pros: vreemde verfachtige anime graphics, behaalde levels overslaan, acht eindes, de game zet je aan het denken
  • Cons: je moet het kunnen waarderen, camera wilt je nog wel eens tegenwerken

  • Summary: Catherine ist anders. Ich kann durchaus verstehen, dass es kein leichtes Unterfangen war, einen Publisher für das Spiel zu finden. Zu experimentell, zu langsam, zu schwer. All diese Attribute muss sich der Titel gefallen lassen. Die toll erzählte Geschichte, die motivierenden Rätsel und das unverbrauchte Setting machen das alles jedoch locker wieder wett.
  • Pros: schöner Grafikstil, frisches Setting, knackige Rätsel, toll erzählte Geschichte, passende musikalische Untermalung, authentische Charaktere
  • Cons: keine deutsche Synchronisation, einige Frustmomente, langsames Gameplay
