I bought this game last month and man it has a great storyline but the puzles are prety easy at first then the further you get the longer and harder they get and it can be frustrating at times, it takes alot of patients and planning and if you are a puzle fan this is for you but you have to be on you p's and q's through the game but it is worth the price.
A Unique Marvel In Its Own Genre
When I first heard of Catherine, I was amazed at the uniqueness of it. i was never really a fan of puzzle games, but WOW was I impressed. Catherine literally creates its own genre. It's a perfect blend of so many genres that it makes your heart skip a beat. And Atlus producing it was the icing on the cake. I knew from just seeing screenshots and reading bits and pieces of the plot that it would be amazing. And it is. Atlus, never stop making games because you are just as unique as Catherine.
Best game I've ever played.
I am blown away by how good this game is. The story is mind-blowing, the gameplay is challenging to say the least, but the beauty really lies in the attention to detail. You can just tell that the makers of this game spent countless hours on everything. I'm so glad I bought it.
Very fun and interesting but unbalanced.
Definitely great puzzles and story. Love all the different endings. But the puzzles tend to change from laughably easy to impossible without help. The camera during nightmares can also be irritating, especially during bosses. Other than those two flaws this game is incredible and memorable!
The story is about Vincent, the hero, being afraid to commit to his gf Katherine. He ends up cheating on her with a young girl named Catherine. Afterwards he starts having nightmares where if he dies in his dream, he'll die in real life: a problem affecting many men lately.(This is where the puzzles start!) During the day you get to use your phone and talk to people at a bar to change Vincent's future.
I won't give away any spoilers but this game is worth picking up
Best Puzzle Game Ever
I Just Got This Game On Birthday And I Love It. Its A Very Hard Game If You Play On Hard You Are Going To Rage Quit
Not for Everyone
This is one of the best games I've played in a long time. I will say it was a challenge to complete. Even on easy, this game proved to be quite the challenge. It has one of the best soundtracks for a video game that I've heard. If you don't have patience, skip this game as it will drive you insane. If you do, pick this up. You won't regret it.
Puzzle Game with a Twist
If people are thinking of puzzle games, they would normally think of Tetris or Bejeweled. But Catherine takes the cake and deserves to be on the Hall of Fame for best puzzle game. The story of the game is suspenseful, dark, and most importantly deep. I was waiting to see what happens next in the story as I pass through each level. The voice acting in it is perfect (and I nearly contained myself when I discovered the voice of Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist was in it), the art style is simply beautiful for a game, and the concept overall is simply unexpected in a good way. I was expecting it to be a lackluster, but after getting into the story, it opened a new door. Catherine is a strange and twisted tale that deserves to be in the collection of anime fans, puzzle fans, fans of a good story, or fans of all of the above.
My Favorite Game - EVER
I had extremely low expectations of this game. I wanted to try the demo before even thinking about buying it, but I haven't had internet on my xbox. I gave in and bought it after I saw it pre-owned and used my PowerUp card to get it for around $33 (including tax). I have to say that I am impressed like no other! This game is AMAZING. It has puzzling puzzles and a logical, interesting story line. It's almost as if you're watching t.v. while also playing a game. Really cool as I've never played anything like this before. The puzzles are really fun and take some thinking, but not too much. They vary as you progress just as the story line does, which changes according to your gameplay! I can't put this game down. Not boring at all and keeps you playing to figure out what happens next in the story! Worth all my money!
a crazy a video game meets anime
game is very fun. its got a goofy anime feel with dark undertones. the hero is someone people can look at and his choices can reflect how you really do feel. However this game is not for everyone. people who don't have a open mind will find this game terrible. however if you like puzzles they are complexe and hard and. If you are a anime fan you will like it for its weird, stragine undertones of real life.
Great Game but dont buy from Gamestop
This is a great game, but gamestop charges the full retail price $60.00. Best Buy and Amazon have it for only $40.00. What a ripoff gamestop...
