Summary: Catherine is a 2 in 1 deal. It combines dating sims and puzzle-solving all into one game. The puzzles are actually hard and difficult to solve. Sometimes each stage requires different strategies or tactics to solve them. The stage bosses also add some difficulty to the already mind-boggling stage. The dating sim portion is kind of glossed over, but it plays an important part in the game depending on your actions that affect events in the game.
Fun/Creepy interactive anime based on moral choices. Great puzzler. great!

Summary: This is a really fun game involving a time crunched puzzle to climb a tower. I honestly really like it, and it has a lot of story. It is almost like an interactive anime. Each level, you have opportunities to obtain good and/or bad karma, which dictates the hero's responses to his girlfriend and lover. At times, it can be really creepy, but at the same time, really deep. I haven't finished it yet, but it is one of my new favorite games.
Summary: I don't really do puzzle games--I find them to be tedious, boring, and not very exciting. On the other hand, one of my favorite game genres is simulation, so when I found out about this game and saw that it blended the puzzle and sim genres together, I was interested. I didn't mind that it was a puzzle game, because the puzzle gameplay from the demo actually felt fun and fast-paced. Not your average puzzle game, that's for sure.
Outstanding narrative, excellent gameplay, and surprisingly entertaining multiplayer

Summary: This game is a simple puzzle platform game that gets increasingly more complex as the player moves deeper and deeper into the story. The designers nailed emergent gameplay by providing simple The "morality" system seems somewhat contrived and relatively confusing for the majority of the title, but is fleshed out more as towards the end of the story.
Summary: Heads up this is a puzzle game. Did not know that going in lol. But other than that the story and choice mechanic worked well here. My wife and I laughed about the choice we made in the game and it's still a game we like to talk about
Summary: I consider myself pretty good at most video games, but man this game would really make my blood boil sometimes. Not quite as bad as Super Meat Boy, but close. The controls would occasionally feel a little sluggish as you are semi-limited in lock step when you are solving puzzles. It takes some getting used to but overall it is a fun game.
Summary: How many puzzle/dating sims have you played? None? Maybe one. If you are willing to take a chance on something different, and fresh, you will be rewarded. Catherine is hot! Let's get the easy things out of the way. The game looks great with anime-looking visuals, and has a fitting soundtrack (slow, and low key in the bar, and classical music during the puzzle sequences. BUT WHO CARES. THIS IS A GAME NOT A MOVIE!
