I never got the hype, when i first saw the puzzle gameplay i was disinterested right away. So what Jeff wrote pretty much confirms why I really don't want to play this game because the puzzle gameplay just doesn't seem great.

Same here. The block pushing gameplay looked flatout stupid and boring since they first showed it.

WOW this review is fucking terrible sorry jeffs this is the worst review you have ever done 
 
 
Here go watch a better Review  
  

That review is fucking terrible. He's literally summarizing and giving us a story synopsis for 90% of it.
 
 
At least link to a positive review that isn't terrible:http://www.1up.com/reviews/catherine-review

Well written review, but I think I'll still be buying it (once it comes out in Europe >_>). I love everything I've seen about this game, (including the gameplay) but I'll definitely keep your complaints in mind. 
 
Thanks for the warning, Jeff.

@oysteinBrenne: I highly doubt that you've finished the game, so who are you to say what is a good review and what isn't. Also, IGN is terrible.

I really wanted to enjoy this game but poor story progression, writing, and gameplay made it really hard. I'm pretty much at the end of the game and I don't feel strongly about feeling about it.

Hearing that Jeff didn't care for the game on the podcast made me think he was crazy, but now that I've played it I get it.

:( Was kinda expecting a 3 star review given what you said on the podcast. Guess I'll wait for this to go on sale then.

Interestingly, KVO gave an 8.5 for this game so I'm pretty sure it should appeal to some people.

The game's great and getting damn good scores everywhere else including user reviews.
 
I'll just ignore this review as I do most these days.

No Chie = 3-star penalty.

@oysteinBrenne: It's IGN ... you gotta be kidding me. Worst gaming site next to Destructoid. Crap like Ao2 40th Day gets a 8.5 from IGN ... their review scale is inflated beyond recognition.

Honestly, after the podcast I was ready to dismiss your review, but a lot of the stuff you wrote is pretty valid and most importantly, well-articulated. This is actually one of your better reviews I have seen.
 
Disagree with a lot of points brought up, though!

I was really hoping this would have turned out better.

I love comments like these. Keep 'em coming.

Could've added an extra star if Chie was there, huh.

Kinda disappointed with the score. It just doesn't sound like it was Jeff's kind of game, since I've been adoring the puzzle gameplay and it hasn't done anything to bore me or push me away. If anything I keep going back for more to get a higher score - and that's only on normal.

Anime games are for jerks.

I got this yesterday and just finished it.  I really liked it.

Still interested in Persona team's next game, though.
