The game would have been better with diffrent puzzles not just climbing blocks but a good story.

Very Worth the Frustration

Now, you may be thinking: "since when is anything worth frustration?"

Well, Catherine proves my point. You see, Catherine is a puzzle game through and through, and like any good puzzle game, it's easy for the first hour or two, then it gets really hard, making you work and really rack your brain to pass the challenge and progress the story.

I love how the choices you make throughout the game effects the story, and the fates of characters you meet. I admit, I hated that after about 4 areas, every area afterwards took me one or two hours to beat (I'm generally the type to rush through things, so slowing down to think hurt my brain.) But, I just loved reaching the top, breathing that sigh of "YES! FINALLY!" relief and watching my story develop in line with my choices.

If you like puzzle games, challenging your mind, and a surprisingly relatable and enjoyable story, you'll enjoy Catherine.

if not... well, you're missing out on a great story.

A nice change of pace

The story of catherine is extremely compelling. It sucks you in and keeps you guessing and throws tons of things at you to make you question the choices you've made. Te only reason i didnt give this game a 10 was because of the gameplay itself. the controlls are slightly clinky and arent the most responsive. The boss battles arent that difficult, and the overall feel of the gameplay gets kind of worn out. But the story is what kepps you playing. you want to find out whats going to happen next so you just keep climbing up that tower, night after night.
