First of all, RENT this game, don't go out and buy it on a whim, you may not like the gameplay style, that said. Catherine is one of the most unique and fun games ive played in a while. Catherine is about the strange tale of a 32 year old, Vincent Brooks being pressured by his long-term girlfreind, Katherine, to get married. However that following night he has an affair with a strange woman aptly named Catherine. He Begins having nightmares about climbing a 8 story tall Tower to achieve "True Freedom" from said nightmares. This is where the core gameplay takes place, in these "Nightmare" stages Vincent must climb up a block puzzle based tower or fall to his doom. This may sound easy, and it is at first, but they get REALLY, challenging later on. There are small landing areas to catch your breath and learn more about other people having the nightmares. Some people may not like the very hard difficulty and it may put them off, really though if you endure through it and reach the top that satisfaction will keep you going until you reach the boss, based off of one of Vincent's Personal fears. After defeating the boss you are able to explore the bar after viewing cutcenes based off the story. Bargoing is realatively fun as you can drink, talk to your friends and other bargoers, play the arcade game to earn some skill needed for later nightmare stages. To advance the plot though means even more crushingly difficult nightmare stages. You'll get the hang of it. But sometimes youll just be put off the game for awhile. The story itself is what really keeps you going, just to further the progress in the story and see what happens next. If you want something other that 14 hours of shooting and a very compelling story, with even more compelling characters Buy, or rent Catherine.
This game is avery difficult game but fun one at that. It is a terrific puzzle game that has a great story to keep you caring about the main character. This game is not for everyone though and many people might not get into the art style. It helps to be a fan of anime to enjoy all the goofy games thrown around. If you seem even the slightest interested, try it out, it might be one of the games you want to keep.
this game is for the thinking players that like to take the time to play a game but dont get this game as borring its a thrill to played its really addictive reaaaally adictive it lets you use your mind in two ways for decition making when you are fixing this three dimensional cube puzzles with a lot of animation and you counciosnes with the answers hiden withing the game it will take you to a roller coaster ride of feelings that takes you from feeling guilty to honest in a second
LOVE THE GAME REMEMBER TO PLAY THIS GAME ALONE IN THE DARK AND WITH A TIME TO SPEAR GREAT GAME FOR AFTER THE WORK JOURNEY REALLY RELAXING .:)
