Fresh off the presses. Here's the short version, and here's the long version. Really happy that it seems to have been received well.
Catherine’s story is one of the most unique ever told in gaming, and while it’s a little hokey, it’s still a hell of a lot of fun.
The anime-style cutscenes and in-game content both look great. There are certainly prettier games out there, but you shouldn’t play Catherine because of how it looks.
I really adored the soundtrack, and while the voice-acting is at times overdone, it’s still extremely fitting.
Once you get the hang of the puzzle gameplay, it will become second nature to you. Those who aren’t gluttons for punishment may be turned off, though.
Really skilled players could get through the game in under 15 hours, but it'll take more than that for most others.
