Great game, if you're looking for something different from the typical mass popular games, this is what you should get. I got interested in this after seeing in IGN's top 25 PS3 games of all times and another Best Unique PS3 games list. If you enjoy great story-telling, you will absolutely love this game. The story of Vincent (protagonist) along with 2 girls (Catherine & Katherine) is highly entertaining, fun, and captivating. There are cut away scenes (so you watch it along like a movie) and you have options to move around and do things in a certain environment (a bar or the bedroom). Basically, Vincent is trapped in a love triangle with these 2 girls and he needs to decide who he needs to go with. Throughout the game, you meet Vincent friends (most of the time is spent at his favorite bar). You also encounter other patrons at the bar, which makes it more interesting. You have the option to decide which messages to send to the girls, which drinks to order, etc. The game has around 8 endings or so, so your choices definitely affect how the game story progresses. I unfortunately got the most boring ending after I youtubed the other endings, but I'll play the game again to see the different story plots.
Throughout the game there are puzzles which revolve around stacking blocks to reach the top, with the difficulty getting harder as you progress. Even though the basics appear simple and something that might become boring, it actually is fun throughout with variations to the game play (exploding boxes, jumping blocks, crazy monsters, etc).
This is a no-brainer, buy this game. I had a lot of fun, and you will certainly as well.
This is a great game for anime fans or puzzle game fans. it blends the two together so well even though it seems really odd at first glance. I absolutely love the story although I haven't completed it yet. I would recommend playing on normal or easy mode for you first run through because this game can get really freaking hard.
Anything Atlus makes super gold except game of drones. This game is hilarious, puzzles are superb. You get to make very trobling descions that affect the story and gameplay. Tons of Replayablity. For an Atlus Collector....this should be on the list since right now it 20 dollars or less. Get it while you still can Physically.
It is a pertty awesome game for playing. The puzzle was really nice, and extremely hard. I love those question and conversation stuff, also the CV was great,too. But the story is kind of weird , like I know the things that the producer wants to say, but I think he can choose a better way to describe that.
I love this game...it's quite hard, though. Even on easy mode, it's quite hard. Don't get it if you don't plan on wasting hours of trying to finish what should be a short and simple storyline. It's really fun if you like puzzles and aren't bothered by mild horror, though.
Love the game. No problem running it and came in mint condition. But the trophies are in japanese and we can't see the choices of men and women players, only an overall. Still, I recommand this game to all. The story is very catching and the puzzles challenging.
Atlus has done it again! Another great RPG. Too often, most games are rated 'M' for the standard reasons. Catherine is a game that is mature, but still has the quirky and cartoonish comedy. I first played this game thinking: "Okay, so this is just some story about a guy who cheats on his girlfriend... Big deal." I didn't know about the addictive puzzles, drink trivia, or anything else the game had to offer. The puzzles are challenging, and I like that the game introduces new strategies and elements throughout the storyline. This game is a stand alone, if I ever see anything like it again, I will jump for joy! This is my favorite game of 2011 -even after playing Skyrim. The art book wasn't as detailed as I had initially thought. I also thought that the soundtrack would have many more songs, though I am very happy to see the Polovistan Dances and Chorus track on there. In summation: Atlus nuts, JRPG fans, challenge seekers, and people who are looking for a fresh experience... Do yourself a favor and give this game a fair chance.
