Unless you are a long time standing fan of the Persona series, Then Catherine is unlike any other game you've played.
Don't let the colorful cover art fool you. The puzzles in this game will test your mind and tenacity as you attempt to escape danger in a unique fashion.
The learning curb can be steep for some so be warned, You don't have the luxury of time to plan your move, you need to react quickly as you ascend higher and higher until you reach your goal. Each new level adds a new twist to the puzzle. Just when you think you've got the hang of things, A new variable is thrown into the level to add new challenges.
The story will twist your mind until it becomes an over used sponge. Caught between two beautiful women you must resist or give into seduction and chose to remain faithful or become promiscuous. It's your choice and the game provides you with many questions, scenarios and dialogue to further complicate things.
Lastly, the sheer depth and length of the game will keep you entertained for hours on end. This isn't a short game and you will be in it for the long haul. The animations and cut scenes alone are longer than most single player campaigns on the market.
So Grab some popcorn, and enjoy a weird yet satisfying tale of romance and drama.

I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when I rented this game, but I'm so happy I did.
The puzzles are addicting. I never found them too repetitive either. They also change depending on which level you select.
I always had the urge to keep going because I wanted to see what happened in the story. I love how what you chose to do impacts the story line as well. I actually replayed it several times to see all of the different outcomes.
