  • Description

    Catherine is the incredibly innovative game brought to you by Atlas, and is unlike anything else that has ever come before it. You play as Vincent Brooks, a guy in his early thirties who's scared of commitment, which is exactly what his girlfriend Katherine is pushing him to do. One night at the local bar, you meet a beautiful young woman called Catherine, and after a heavy night of drinking you wake up next to her in your bed.

    The story mode is called Golden Playhouse, which splits the game in to two different time periods: day time socialisation, and the nightmares that you become trapped in whenever you fall asleep. During the day, you will be tasked with socialising with your friends, your girlfriend, and Catherine, in both person and through text. Be careful though, as juggling these two women seems to be more trouble than you'd expect, and each decision you make with your speech and in general affects your morality. The vast majority of this awake time is spent in the local bar the Stray Sheep, where you can order drinks, talk to other patrons, listen to the jukebox, and more.

    The night time is when Vincent's anxiety really rears its ugly head. All of his deepest fears come to life in his dreams: fear of commitment, fear that he's cheated on his girlfriend, fear that she will find out; everything he is afraid of is now alive and terrorising him in his sleep. This is where the game gets tricky. Each nightmare is a block puzzle level, tasking you to push and pull various blocks in order to reach the top. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. As you climb, the bottom levels of blocks will disappear, giving a definite sense of urgency to reach the top. Adding to this is a certain horrific personification of his fears, an example of which being a giant disfigured baby at least fifty feet tall, waiting at the bottom of the blocks for you to fall to your doom. Still sound easy? Wrong again, this game requires you to keep your wits about you as every block is different; certain blocks explode, there are blocks made of ice, blocks from which giant spikes will protrude should you step on them, and that's just to name but a few. Oh, and there's a time limit, not to mention the fact that the difficulty level increases every time you fall asleep, and the boss battles that await you. All of these aspects join together to build up the incredible tension that both Vincent, and now you, experience as you attempt to reach the top in order to wake up from your terrifying slumber.

    Catherine focusses on topics that most games would never dream of breaching: free will, infidelity, fear of commitment, morality, and more. The basic premise of this game being is that you're a guy who's gotten in over his head, but this so uniquely portrays his tortured soul that it is unlike anything you've ever seen or played before.

Catherine is truly unique.

As a member of the Video Game Developer community, I have played a lot of games with the aim of being objective, in order to learn and understand choices made by other developers, to stay on top trend and experience the best ideas games have to offer. My conclusion is the guys who made Catherine are geniuses. It's a wonderfully unique experience - you have never played and probably will never again play a game quite like it. That is the real beauty of Catherine. It's thematically bizarre but tackles a very real social faux pas, the act of cheating, as well as tackling feelings of doubt and personal weakness. Did I also mention it's a puzzle game? Don't be fooled by the overtly and slightly grotesque sexuality displayed in art work and on the sleeve, this game is a horror thriller and will have you questioning your own ethics whilst spinning you through a wild ride of questions. It's a must have for game enthusiasts.

Original

It is really original but a bit repetitive. The story is so good and original but the style of puzzle are very repetitive (at least in the beginnig)

Catherine, oh Katherine...

Catherine is an unusual combo of a puzzle/anime/choose your own adventure game. Basic game play can be put down to laying cubes by night to reach your goal alive, and spending days working and hanging with your friends. The main character is Vincent, who is in a long relationship with Katherine. The problems start when he meets Catherine, and one day wakes up in bed next to her. During the day you talk with your friends, Katherine and Catherine, trying to figure out your life. It has a good story, great dialogues and excellent voice acting.

Catherine

Catherine is one of the weirdest and most interesting stories I have ever seen. It is quite challenging and fun. Would highly recommend.

Great game

This game has strong points on story and animation artwork. The only down side is the actual interaction in only on puzzle-typed game play. I wish, there could be more type of puzzle instead of just raced-block arranging puzzle

Hidden Gem

Catherine is an amazing little game. I was hoping to try out a "different" game and Catherine seemed just what I was looking for. I wasn't expecting anything like this though. This is truly a hidden gem and the fun you can have while playing this game makes it totally worth buying. Perhaps it could use some different gameplay mechanics to make things a bit more different at times but still it is a solid title for any gamer's collection.

Two thumbs up

Catherine is one of the best PS3 games. It features a magnificent story and magnificent gameplay. You will find a part of you in the main character Vincent and fall in love with Katherine or Catherine.

Review of Catherine

I like puzzles and this was a challenging game. It was bizarre in everyway, disturbing yet entertaining. I had enjoyed playing this with other friends in versus mode.

Catherine

From the people that brought you the Persona series comes Catherine, which is unlike anything you've ever played before. Blending horror and puzzles, this game is twisted and addictive, and you won't put it down until you see through this mature story about adult relationships.

Catherine

Catherine is an excellent, funny and crazy game. Sometimes the puzzles are frustrating, but the storyline is one of the craziest I've ever seen.
