I thought this game had an amazing story and kept me entertained the entire time. With that said, the repetition of constantly climbing and climbing with hardly any diversity to it makes the game lack fun.
Sure its exciting to finally solve the puzzle and get to the top, but after constantly doing it...I found that it was just getting boring and ruining the anticipation of what happens next with the story.
All in all I recommend playing this game. Just keep in mind all your going to do is climb and climb and climb and climb.
Had a good story and it was nice to see you could have different endings based on your decisions, but a lot of times when you're playing boss levels, the camera angle went completely off, got me killed a lot, and you couldn't fully rotate to the back so you could scale that as well.
All in all, it's a mediocre game, and if all you have is time on your hands, then it's worth the very last spot on your gameQ.
Ever gotten tired of killing zombies or stabbing monsters? Do you have for something new, exciting and different? Catherine may just be the right game you are looking for. I never knew climbing and moving blocks could be so fun. I first played Catherine on Normal mode and did not have bouts of frustration as has been reported by other reviewers. I did get lucky a few times just moving blocks around though. The story is written very well and there is immediate attachment to the characters and the gameplay is also very addicting. My girlfriend even watched me play for it for awhile and showed interest in the story and she hates video games. Once you beat the game there are online modes that special challenges that keep the game fresh and challenging. Plus you do not get games with multiple endings and with 8 endings total; this game will keep me busy for quite some time. Given that you can skip the stages that you received a gold in if you do not want to replay them over in the story mode. That does help if you are trying to achieve all of the endings. Have not been completely satisfied with a game in a long time and Catherine definitely surpassed my expectations.
